Toothless At Last

Katie has literally been trying to pull the teeth out of her mouth for years. Ever since Emily started loosing teeth. She really stepped it up a notch when her cousin Jessie lost a tooth during our stay in Arizona. With hands constantly in her mouth tugging at perfectly solidly firm teeth she finaly got one out.

She carried that tooth around in a bag all day long. And she wanted to show it to everyone. After all she had fought so hard for it. Years of waiting and asking Dad to check her teeth finally paid off.

At long last it was Kate's turn to shout for the tooth fairy. She had to shout extra loud this year so the poor tooth fairy could locate us. It is always harder after a move.

I can't believe she's old enough to lose a tooth! If Mercedes' is anything like Ile was, we won't be celebrating any lost teeth until the very end of 1st grade!

Is it fun to play with the hole in your mouth where your tooth use to be? You are my little angel.

Yeah! Finally. Hey, even Becca has been asking me to "bonk" out her teeth now- and she used to be scared to death of loosing a tooth. I hope the fairy found her OK.

Sophie is desperate to lose a tooth too, but she is not even close.
I thought we were the only ones that had to yell for the tooth fairy :) I love that tradition!!!!
