Last night she lost her first tooth. She had been working on wiggling that thing out for about a month now, and it was finally hanging by a thread. I told her to get a kleenex, and I would check it.

I pulled it out without her knowing and told her to go check it out in the mirror to see how loose it was.

She hopped onto the bathroom stool all ready to see her tooth hanging there. Her face was priceless. It went from -let me see- smiles to complete shock as her jaw dropped and her eyes opened very wide. Where did it go!?!

She had no idea that I had pulled it out. We all had a good laugh. Oh, to remember these special everyday moments. I hope they last.

 

It has been the talk of today as she playfully pushes her tongue through the space where her tooth once was.

“Look at me smile, Mom.”

“Do I look different?”

“Don’t I look soooo old with my tooth gone?”

“Do I talk different, Mom?”

Yes… my love. You are growing up before my very eyes. I am thankful that we capture these images of you to hold onto and remember you as you are today.

She has a love for cute and cuddly things. Wouldn’t you all agree?

She is supposed to pick her favorite 5 to leave on her bed, and the rest go in the toy chest beside her. Somehow more appear on her bed everyday. http://capturingroots.com/blog/2015/02/06/6-years-old-and-growing/How can she pick only 5 when she has a heart for them all!?! She is beginning to run out of room to sleep.

I spy her. Can you? 😉

It’s only appropriate since we started with a crazy face, to end with a variety of them.
