Today we celebrated a couple "first" moments
First day at a playground since the winter weather started...at least 6 months ago!
First time I have seen a robin this Spring! Woot Woot!!
And Caleb's First Baby teeth will be put under his pillow tonight!!!
Caleb will be 5 1/2 in seven days, so it was about time anyway for him to possibly loose a baby tooth; however, we weren't too excited his first baby teeth would have to be removed for him. About two years ago, Caleb took a mouth dive into a wooden toy barn that we have. We thought he might loose his tooth, but luckily he was able to keep it and just had a little grey tooth. A week ago though, Jon and I both noticed that the tooth had suddenly changed color - not good. Tuesday we went in and were told what we had predicted would happen: the tooth needed to be removed, as there was an infection in the root. What we didn't know is that the tooth next to it also needed to be removed to minimize risk of the infection spreading, AND the x-ray he had shows some HUGE teeth are about to come in (sounds like he will have his Dad's looks and his Mama's teeth!!!), so it was best if both front teeth were removed. This Mama, was sad. Caleb's first baby teeth wouldn't be wiggled out, it seems like it is a loss of childhood or something! But I don't think he is any less for wear, that is, as long as the tooth fairy still comes tonight!
Oh goodness! He is Stoked about this tooth fairy thing! He was collecting sticks and rocks at the park so tha he can supposedly turn them into a "trap" for the tooth fairy tonight! lol! Tonight will also be his first time using the monster tooth pillow I made him. The pillow will hold his teeth so that they don't accidentally get lost under his big pillow. I had seen this monster pillow years ago and have been waiting to make it. Hard to believe the time was finally here to get it done!... but of course that meant I left it until the absolute last minute... I just may have stayed up until almost midnight last night in order to get it done. ;)
Happy Friday everyone!
