She sells seashells by the seashore

So two days after my last post, the one remaining front tooth #1 had became lose. And it only took a couple of days of intense tooth wiggling to get it out. For a little bit #1 was quite snagletoothed and halfway attached. It was kind of creepy really.

In fact #1 spent most of church on Saturday night in the bathroom and emerged victorious with a bloody paper towel in hand.

And now my baby's appearance has changed once again. In a milestone way for me. He is quite proud of his new look and will join the "top teeth" club at school. I took all of the boys to the dentist yesterday (no catvities!!) and found out that the boys will lose all 20 of the baby teeth (each) that we suffered through many sleepless nights to get. I really don't remember losing my teeth, except for one that I really had to work on it class to get it out. The new molars #1 just got are his 6 yr molars and they are adult teeth as will be the 12 year old molars he will get in just 6 short years. I think there should be a teeth hand book that comes with kids. From the sloppy, screeching mess that is teething, to taking care of them and losing them and then getting them again.

A guide for the rest of us ~ The Tooth Book by Dr. Suess ~ Happy Birthday!

And now the boy with a big hole in his face!
Is it bad that we keep trying to get him to repeat "She sells seashells by the seashore?"

Creative Mem software is what I'm planning to buy - I've heard it's awesome! It will make me feel less guilty about how much "hard copy" I have of it downstairs. :)
