Last month, Firecracker hit a new milestone. She got braces! And had them put on 2 days before her 8TH Birthday! M & M Dude and I both had braces and did not expect to have our youngest child to start with braces first and even a little earlier than we started (I had braces put on in 3rd grade). Firecracker actually has the opposite issue (underbite) than us (overbite).
