A little less my baby

A few weeks ago Alison went to the dentist for the first time. We received a glowing report which included her lack of cavities and the appearance of her first permanent molar. The dental hygenist also pointed out that Ali's bottom, front right tooth was a bit wiggly. And the new tooth was already coming in behind it.

The dentist took a look and said that as long as the wiggling progressed and food was not getting trapped between the two teeth, we were all set. Alison took to task wiggling that tooth every day and I asked each morning and after each meal if it was still in.

Last night after dinner Wayne asked the "look" at the tooth. I don't know how you were raised, but I remember what went down when my dad wanted to "look" at my loose teeth.

After a bit of screaming (which started way before any tooth touching) our baby is shy one tooth.

It's outta there!

She's so big. I remember when she had no teeth and we excited when the first one broke the gums . . .

Neatnik's lost two teeth so far and each one needed a little "help". But the new ones were right there pushing them out so it was time. Congrats to your little-less-baby.

Aww...I don't want to get there too fast, but how cool is that. Sorry about your rib, OUCH!
