Say cheese!

Well, ladies and gentlemen, we have hit another milestone in our little family. I know I say all the time that they are just growing up TOO DARN FAST (stop it boys, would ya? Please for mommy????!!!). Yesterday, Jacob pointed to this:



and said, "my tooth is jiggly". What? How in the world does my baby already have a loose tooth? I quickly googled "when should my child lose his first tooth?" and found the answer to be anywhere from 4 1/2 - 8 years old. Well, holy moly, I didn't know that, but now I do. Since we are only (gulp) 2 months away from being 5, I guess we're right on track. But seriously? I don't know why this milestone feels so old to me. He's going to have a toothless smile before we know it. Ohmywordiwishicouldfreezetime!!!!!!

So, any wise words we could pass on to the tooth fairy? What's the going rate these days? :-)

I don't have any experience with the tooth fairy yet, but I completely understand how each milestone gets harder and harder. Really, why do our babies have to grow up? And why so fast?!?

Woohoo! Huge milestone at the Stover household. Can't believe it! Kiss that toothy grin for me:).

wow!! What a big kid!!!! We got a dollar for "big teeth" and our first tooth, and just some random change for the others. I'm sure it was whatever the "toothfairy" could dig out of the couch or something :)
