My eldest had her firt two teeth on her upper gum but my youngest had her first two below. And then, my youngest had her next two teeth up but not in the middle gum, its the 3rd teeth in the left and in the right having the middle teeth as the supposed 1st teeth (right and left, I divided the teeth in the medially for easier reference). What about your kids, did they had their first teeth growing from the middle towards the innermost side or it grew in an unordered manner?Attached is my baby's pic laughing, showing her first four teeth.

Every child is different. My daughter had her 1st tooth in the middle. THe next was on the bottom. It gave her a unique smile.I think it is one of the things that makes babies so adorable. When she grows up and sees that pic, I am sure she will laugh.

Every child is different. I thought that the front teeth usually come through first that are relatively easy. Then the more challenging ones come through later. The important thing is brushing your children's teeth to keep the teeth as well as the gums healthy. My toddler's teeth began with two in the middle, then the two opposite that. Now he is getting the ones further left and right. Good luck with your children's teeth.
