Snaggle Tooth

After weeks, really months, of having a loose tooth, Georgie finally lost her first tooth this morning! When we went to the dentist in July they told us her bottom two permanent teeth were already coming in....and she had not lost her baby teeth yet. I was shocked. I didn't know this could happen. The good news was that they both were loose, one more than the other. She has been wiggling this one tooth since then. It literally had been hanging on by a thread for over a week. She would NOT let us pull it or even touch it, since her friend Kiley told her it would hurt (by the way, thanks Kiley). This morning as soon as she sat down at the kitchen table for breakfast, it finally gave way and fell out on its own. She was so excited. Her school pictures were yesterday. I had hoped she'd loose it before her pictures because you know how cute first grade pictures are when teeth are missing! We are ready for a visit from the tooth fairy tonight. On that subject, after checking with a few friends I was a little surprised how much the tooth fairy leaves these days!

A few days ago before it fell out

Jack was especially interested in all this tooth talk. He has told everybody he has come in contact with today, that "my teef are getting really big," whatever that means???
