Juliana, at 17 months, has not had any teeth. This has not slowed her down much in the eating department, as she can out-eat Elena when she wants to. We have been calling her the Gumming Wonder because she eats a huge amount of solid food with just her gums. She reminds me of a turtle or a parrot - they don't have teeth either. She can eat anything short of tough meats. She especially likes it when Mommy or Daddy stick fingers in her mouth (removing foreign objects, feeling for teeth, etc.) as she then bites down on a knuckle joint with a truly staggering amount of force.
Tonight we caught her gnawing on a piece of gravel she picked up from outside. In the process of removing the gravel, I felt little teeth. Closer examination revealed that Juliana has two teeth growing - one on each side of her mouth. However - they are molars. Juliana is very tricky and has decided to forego her front teeth and grow the molars first.
