. . . a new tooth!
Yup! You heard it here! Today, Thursday, October 8, 2009 my girl lost her very first tooth.
I came home after David & Erin since I had a doctor's appointment. No sooner did I walk in the door than Erin came running up to me "Mama! Look! My tooth came out!"
And thank G-d it did. Erin was told back in May that she had a loose tooth. I told the dentist that I was shocked because I thought her teeth were grounded in cement. He had a good laugh at that. Anyway, her tooth started to become visibly loose in August. She's been waiting for this to happen since many of her friends started to loose teeth last year. Her friend Alyssa lost 2 teeth in as many days!
So what was Erin doing when her tooth came out? Nothing. She was in aftercare doing her homework. She wasn't even eating a snack! It just fell out on the table. Cool!
Her tooth is so tiny! In fact, I got worried thinking that there was a problem because her permanent tooth is already there. David told me that the only way for the baby teeth to come out is for the adult tooth to push it out of the way.
My girl is growing up. I'm not ready for this. But I am so dang happy for her!!!
