Summer's first lost tooth!

A new smile for Summer!

Several weeks ago, Paul noticed that behind one of Summer's bottom teeth, a new tooth was coming up!

Her baby teeth were not loose at all, so we called the dentist.  The dentist said she should just start wiggling the baby tooth in front of the new tooth each time she brushed her teeth.  Sure enough, as the bigger tooth grew in farther, the baby tooth got wiggly!  After nightly brushings, a very excited Summer kept asking Daddy if her tooth was wiggly enough to pull out, and Daddy would check it.  Unfortunately, the new tooth behind the baby tooth kept the baby tooth from being able to fully wiggle backwards, and thus harder to get enough "wiggle" to loosen it.

After weeks of wiggling, it was finally VERY ready to come out.  A quick mommy "tooth twist" after breakfast on Friday, April 15th produced Summer's first lost tooth!  She was so excited!

The tooth fairy came!  (and as we explained to Summer, she was new on the job...she forgot to take the tooth...;) )  Of course Summer knows who the tooth fairy REALLY is ;).
