Chomp! Ouch!

Our little toothless boy with the gummy smile is preparing for teeth! 

The other day, as he sat happily in his grandfather's lap, Liam slowly opened his mouth and attempted to insert Grandpa's thumb.

Figuring it'd just get covered with baby slobber, Grandpa had no reservations about offering his thumb.  Who knows, perhaps it would taste good!

But Liam surprised his grandfather by chomping down HARD!

"Ouch!" Grandpa exclaimed with surprise.

Embarrassed, Little Liam gave an apologetic baby smile.

Sorry, Grandpa!

His strength impressed his grandfather, though, who's known in the family for being a former weightlifter.  Will Liam ever have a strength like that?  Only time will tell, but for now, at least, we know that our little boy has got some powerful chompers!
