The long awaited for day finally arrived. This morning the braces went on. Lloyd is so excited about his braces. He is anticipating a great smile in a couple of years and is ready for whatever it takes to get it (even head-gear, which will be added in a couple of months). I just hope that all the extra care that goes into brushing with braces and all the denied foods don't spoil his excitement too soon. And he even chose green and gold bands in honor of the Green Bay Packers (his mother's favorite football team).
