Over the Thanksgiving break, we discovered that A had her first loose tooth.
So, I kept bugging her to let me take lots of close-up pictures.
I knew it was a race against the clock before this sweet face
turned into this one!
I think she was in a little shock after it actually came out. We had been encouraging her to wiggle it since Thanksgiving, and even more so the last few weeks when we discovered her permanent tooth was already attempting to upstage the baby! At the point I got hold of it last week, it was not hanging on by much. You can tell she is mesmerized by her new look.
Brother was pretty amazed by the whole process too! So much so, he is convinced he also has a loose "toof". And of course, he wanted a gander at the blood!
We are glad to report that we got word to the Tooth Fairy just in time! She is keeping the tooth safe, and in return, left a lovely note of encouragement along with a $1 bill!
As for me, I kept it together. I held her face a lot, told her how proud I was of her, and gave her extra hugs that night.
Ok, so maybe the hugs were for me!
