Clinically cute


The Olympic sport of choice in the curiousLee household is watching Cianna's first teeth grow. At close to nine-months-old, these two little white nubs are late arrivals. Many babies have two lower and four upper teeth by six months. As a change of pace from the cute kid portraits, I'm going clinical with this super-macro photo taken while Cianna was asleep. They call the arrival of baby teeth "eruptions," and I think the color palette and lighting in this photo of Cianna's mouth are evocative of volcanic activity.
