1 Dylan had a baby brother named Ryan in his family. Ryan was usually a very easy-going baby, but lately he was quite cranky.
2 "What's the problem with the little guy?" Dylan asked his mother.
3 "Teething," his mom answered. "Ryan is right on time. Babies usually start teething around six to eight months. This is so exciting! What a milestone."
4 "Oh, yeah?" Dylan said. "Let me take a look." Sure enough the two bottom front teeth were just cutting through the gums. "How does this whole teething thing work?"
5 "Do you mean what order do they come up in?" his mother asked.
6 "Yes," Dylan said.
7 "Well," his mother said, "when Ryan was born, he actually had a set of primary teeth, or baby teeth, partially developed; you just couldn't see them. Then they start erupting, or breaking through, often in pairs. First the central incisors, or the bottom front teeth, come in. Then a month or so later the four front upper teeth usually appear. Soon after, there are the lower lateral incisors. Tada! Then the first molars and eyeteeth appear."
8 "If it's so exciting," Dylan asked, "why is Ryan so unhappy about it?"
