Family Welcomes 1st Baby Girl In 137 Years. Dad Freezes When Sees Highway Billboard

After 137 years of giving birth to boys, the Settle family was used to the idea that having a baby girl was just not in the cards. But when Kelen Settle found out she was pregnant with her second child, things took an interesting turn!

A balloon gender reveal was set up and Kelen was joined by her husband, Will, to find out if the all-boy streak remained intact! The second Kelen opened the box, she was shocked by what came out…

Instead of a bunch of blue balloons, Kelen and Will were greeted by bright pink ones! It was at that moment the couple realized the 137-year streak was over and a little girl would soon be running around their home!

Kelen told Yahoo News how she felt the moment they found out she was carrying a baby girl.

“That was a very shocking experience for me. I just assumed I was going to have another boy. I was like, ‘What’s going on? This just can’t be possible.’

I was absolutely shocked. We had the whole family there. My mother just went nuts. My mom always wanted a daughter. She was absolutely ecstatic. She could not believe it.”

Kelen’s pregnancy wore on and soon it was time to give birth! Carter Louise Settle was born earlier this month and all of the family’s loved ones came around to celebrate her arrival.

Friends, family and coworkers dropped by to say hello and meet the beautiful baby girl – some brought flowers, others brought clothes, but several of Will’s coworkers had something else up their sleeves!

Instead of presenting Will and Kelen with a typical gift, the group decided to welcome Carter to the world in a big way! 

They bought ad space on a billboard near the Settle’s South Carolina home and put up an enormous picture of Carter! Before Will and Kelen got to see the billboard themselves, more than a dozen friends and family members called and texted them after driving by and seeing Carter’s face!

Dance Precisions Performs A Wild Number At A National Dance Competition

It’s not every day that you see a performance as fun and mesmerizing as this one. When I first started watching, I almost entirely forgot that these dancers were only eight years old when this dance was recorded.

Their moves are so impressive and in sync with each other that they come off as well-seasoned professionals who have been doing this for many years.

The fact that they’re so young and so talented only adds to my amazement. I definitely could not dance like that when I was eight years old.

This gifted dancing team is known as Dance Precisions, and they are gaining increasing popularity for numbers as entertaining as the one below.

Their performance to the hit song “Scream & Shout” during the Kids Artistic Revue National Dance Competition landed them in first place, and garnered large amounts of attention on social media.

See why everyone is buzzing about this performance by watching the video below! Don’t forget to share your reaction with us in the comments section.

Doctors Are Urging Parents Everywhere To Keep Their Kids’ Baby Teeth

Losing a first tooth is something of a rite of passage for kids everywhere. It’s a sign that you’re growing up and getting bigger. And if you’re like a lot of people, it also meant a little cash under your pillow in the morning from the “tooth fairy.”

And if you grew up to have kids of your own, maybe you remember taking on the time-honored role of tooth fairy and slipping some money under your kids’ pillows to celebrate this new stage in their lives. And the kids get to buy a little something for themselves, or like one little boy, pay it forward with a kind gesture.

But what do you do with the tooth after you swap it out for a dollar? Some people keep them as sentimental keepsakes, but many simply toss them. After all, what can a shed baby tooth really do for you?

Well, as it turns out, quite a bit. A study in 2003 showed that baby teeth are a rich source of stem cells, which are like protocells that can be grown into multiple kinds of cells if needed.

That means that if later in life, a child needs replacement tissue for whatever reason, the stem cells from their baby teeth can be used to grow the needed tissue. Pretty amazing!

Potentially, the practice of storing baby teeth could save lives and treat a variety of ailments. Read on to learn more about this amazing process.mouth

Losing baby teeth, or deciduous teeth, as they’re properly known, is a rite of passage for kids everywhere.

Most of us can remember that first little wiggle that let us know a change was coming, and then the weird absence of a tooth when it finally fell out.But what we remember the most? The promise of a cash reward, courtesy of the tooth fairy!tooth

The tooth fairy tradition actually goes back pretty far, and some link it back to old Norse culture, where baby teeth were considered good luck. Other cultures around the world also have specific traditions involving baby teeth.

As it turns out, baby teeth really can bring good fortune, but it’s less the magical kind, and more the medicinal kind — although modern medicine is pretty amazing!tooth and coin

In 2003, a study determined that baby teeth contain stem cells and that if preserved quickly after falling out, the stem cells can be stored for years and kept in case of later medical problems in life.money

So if you thought getting a dollar for your tooth was cool, then getting the chance to grow any kind of tissue, from heart cells to brain cells, and repair damaged tissue is really cool.tooth box

But there’s one catch: the baby teeth have to be kept fresh. Like anything, stem cells degrade and lose their potency over time.

So simply keeping your child’s baby teeth in a box isn’t going to cut it.happy kid

Instead, parents can use services like Store-A-Tooth to properly preserve their children’s teeth.

The teeth are placed in a liquid nitrogen cryopreservation vault, where the stem cells will remain intact and usable for years.

If later in life, the child, who may be an adult at this point, needs their stem cells, the teeth are taken out of storage and shipped to their doctor.hand

It seems like all the cultures that had superstitions about the power of baby teeth were, in a strange way, actually onto something!

Mom Is Away For 30 Seconds And Finds Her Kids Aren’t Eating — Instead, They’re Praying

If only everyone had the heart of a child.

Children are the innocent ones. They’re the ones who love blindly, who haven’t yet been taught to have hearts of steel, or to walk down the wrong path. These three little girls are proof of that.

Rutha Andrew always taught her children to say a prayer before diving into their meals. It’s a simple gesture, and one that’s become “out of date” to many people, but it means so much.

It’s so important to take the time to reflect on what you are thankful for in your life, to remember what’s really important. Saying a simple thank-you prayer for family, love, health, and kindness with those sitting around the table only takes a minute or two, but so many people don’t take that little time.

When Andrew stepped away from the picnic table to grab some milk for Oriana, Grace, and Alexis after serving them breakfast, she came back to a scene that touched her heart so much, she knew she had to snap a picture of it.

I’ll tell you, I’m so glad that she did. It’s such a wonderful reminder of how we should all approach our lives.

When’s the last time you took the time to reflect and say a prayer before you chowed down on that delicious meal? I know it’s been a long time for me.
