... And After

Here is the "new" Braden!



New glasses. New haircut. No braces.

And look! He has ears!

Braden has been planning this day for at least a month.

He managed to keep all of the changes a secret from everyone, hoping for huge dramatic reactions. So far, only M. and I have reacted dramatically.

At debate today, Braden mentioned that he'd gotten his braces off. His teacher said something along the lines of, "Oh? You wore braces?"

Tomorrow he'll see his friends, and will likely see much more drama than he got today, I think.


Here is Brogan's new look!



Brogan begins "Phase 1" of treatment, and thus far only has braces on his top teeth. He'll wear a wire there for a couple of months and then move on to head gear. Yay!

He's a bit worried about head gear, thinking he'll look like the young Willy Wonka in "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory." But many wonderful adults who have survived headgear have been quick to reassure him that it's not so bad.


I think the braces make him look older and more mature. Don't you?

Brogan, you look very nice in your new braces and don't worry you will get use to them real quick. Grandma H

I don't know why, but I didn't notice Braden's braces in your pictures before! I do like his haircut and nice smile.

Brogan looks very cute with braces!
