Missing Teeth

We had quite a rite of passage at our house this weekend. Ryan has had two loose teeth for several weeks but they just didn't want to come out. Finally on Friday evening, when he couldn't eat his Dilly Bar because it hurt too bad, he decided he wanted it out. So Jim got the pliers out and pulled it out. What a brave boy!!

Then Saturday after basketball, the second tooth was pulled as well. It is amazing how much it changes his little face. It makes him look so much older. Oh, how time flies!

I also need to thank Donna, Jenny, and Carlo and my sisters for the wonderful birthday gifts and cards. Thanks for making my birthday special!

It makes them look instantly so much older doesn't it?
I am reading Cecilia Ahern's new book. I have enjoyed all her novels.
And the Book Thief.

Definitely a big day for Ryan. Hope all goes well with the Tooth Fairy.

That looks like an Upward uniform? Caleb's playing Upward and it's great.

What a brave guy (and it helps that your hubby has skills with tools and body parts).

He looks adorable!

Ah, yes let the awkward years begin. I was so sad that Taylor lost her first when she was 5. My kids would have been FREAKING at those tools.

Wow, Ryan is so brave to let Dad do that! I tried to help my 7 yr old, Austin pull his teeth recently and he wouldn't let me get close to him!
