Nicholas is doing ok with his braces...

He was able to eat some bourbon chicken and a shake from Chick Fil A when he got home from school. We cranked his expander when he got home. I wanted to make sure I remembered how to do it while the orthodontist was still open in case I had to call the office all in a panic. I remembered and he felt it cranking. Some of you have asked what this key looks like and this is it. The little end at the bottom fits into this teeny tiny hole (its the size of a pin hole) and I just push it back towards the back of his mouth and it widens the expander. We will crank everyday for 2 weeks then go from there. He will wear this contraption for 7 whole months but we will not crank it that whole time (thank goodness).
