Hangin' On

When Emily lost her two bottom front teeth, she already had new teeth growing in. I never got to see her with a big gap in her teeth. I love kids with a gap in their teeth. There's just something so adorable about it. Youth, a right of passage, the tooth fairy, it's all great.

Emily's front tooth has been wiggly for about 6 months. For the past week, every time she bumped her mouth on anything it would start bleeding. It was getting looser and looser. Last night she hit it in the bathtub and the water works started. We were trying to pull it out for her, but she was scared.

So, we told her she could go to school today looking like Frankenstein and so be it. It will fall out soon enough. She got up for school this morning, took one bite of banana bread and it fell out.

She looks so cute with a gap! Love it.

This tooth was way more dramatic than the other two. I think the tooth fairy will be extra generous since it was so painful.

Sarah had permanent teeth growing behind her baby teeth too and she literally had to have some of her baby teeth extracted from the dentist because they had super long twisted roots!

Emily looks so cute. :)

I love the new hairdo and toothless look on Emmy's sweet little face. She looked so upset in last night's picture. I'm surprised she held on to it so long, since it seemed like it was ready to be released on Sunday. Thanks for sharing the new look! Too cute♥
