Owen lost his first tooth! He noticed it was loose, and then got pretty upset about it. He was scared it was going to bleed or that he would swallow it. He wanted it out right away! We jiggled it a little and pulled a bit, but it wasn't quite ready. As we were pulling on it, he started crying for us to stop. And then two minutes later, he said to get it out. It was like being on a roller coaster.
He just had to wait another week or so and it finally came out when he was eating chips. The initial reaction to the loose tooth was pretty traumatic, but he was all smiles when the tooth came out.
Here's the proud face of a smile with one less tooth!
On another note, Owen is looking forward to kindergarten next year. He often asks when he gets to go to school. His kindergarten screening was today - we met a few of the teachers, and he wrote his name and drew a picture. I guess he's good to go! He got the not-so-fun remaining immunizations last week. He didn't cry at all. Owen is such a big boy now! He still has his moments, but for the most part he is a sweet boy. And he melts my heart when he says, "Mama, you're beautiful!" (nearly every day and sometimes multiple times a day). The teacher who gets this handsome little charmer will be lucky!
