Mind the Gap

Woohoo!!! My daughter Gillian has had a loose tooth for a while now. I would remind her to wiggle it and twist it (which she loved to do two inches from my face since it would make me squirm). Her adult teeth have been pushing her baby ones out for a month or so, so we knew it was inevitable. I didn't want to put pressure on her to yank it too early or to be so scared of it that she didn't help it along. But today, I noticed it was literally hanging off her gum. I encouraged her to twist it some more, and it just slid right out!

Oh heavens! That toothless grin is priceless! She is super excited and feels very grown up. She is proud of herself, and I'm so thrilled that she is doing so well. Now Josh is trying to twist his teeth! She has other loose teeth in her mouth, and after a certain tooth fairy visits her tonight, she may start yanking them out left and right!

Ok, the grin. You've GOT to see this cute grin!
