Hey everyone! I guess I haven't really told you much about my actual progress lately... so here it goes... ha...

First though! I have some update pictures! :)

I am so happy with my new smile, and I can hardly wait to get my braces off! I cannot believe it is all over! I mean I feel like I was just saying "9 more months!" It's crazy... when you are going through it- it feels like foreveeeer, but once you make it past the first few weeks, it seems like a distant memory.
I have been doing pretty well... I have 85% of my feeling back... All I need is for the nerves in my chin to come, but I can tell they are getting better, they tingle when I touch my chin... ha.
I have been wearing rubber-bands, fine tuning my bite... They are pretty thick, and they are moving my molars in the back, they make my teeth pretty sore, but not too bad... they are just annoying more than anything...
One thing I find extremely amusing is that the sizes of rubber bands are based on animals, so every time I go to the ortho I am like, "Soooo... I am I still wearing Impalas or am I going down to Pandas?" I sure do get a kick out of it...

I hope you are all doing awesome! Let me know how you are! Where are you in your journey? Anything you wanna know? Ask?

Love, Makay

"Um... noooo..."

So I was at Wyldlife, a Christian club for middle schoolers, we do ALL sorts of "Wyld" things, and well I am a high school leader! :) We are always victimized, and embarrassed. All is good though because that is why we go. Tonight was nerd night... a Mom came and picked up her son afterwards and I said "Hi I am Makay! Thanks for driving him over here we had a blast!" She said, "Oh, do you go to school with "Bob"?" hahaha... "Um, no I have graduated the 8th grade- I am a Junior in highschool..." haha... She said, "Oh really? You hardly look like you are in 7th grade!" WHATTTTTT!??!?!?!?!?!? Dang...

Maybe it was the outfit.... or the braces? HAHA.

Ever since surgery people have thought I look younger, which I guess isn't a bad thing... haha, but I don't know... I want to look like a junior, not a 7th grader... ha...

What do you think?
