what a difference a year makes

Yesterday Emma had an ortho appointment, and it got me to thinking about how it's been a year since she got her braces. So I wanted to take a quick pic of her to compare and contrast so that I could see the changes. So she could see the changes.
Holy crap! My baby doesn't look like this anymore:

This is what she looks like!
Much longer hair, badly in need of a haircut. I couldn't talk her into the cute cut she had a year ago. Her face is leaner. She looks more mature. And her teeth have really come a long way.

Yesterday they added a 'power chain', a thicker wire, and rubber bands. She was not happy in the least. I expect that she is going to be drinking a lot of meals in the next few days.
I was just surprised to see such a difference in her, since I look at her every day and don't see it, not like that. Wow.
My baby is becoming a woman!

Good idea to take photos of the Before. I'll have to remember that eight weeks from now when it's my baby getting her braces.
