Some people grow leaps and bounds in the gaps between milestones. Some milestones have gaps. Monkey now has a gap in her smile!! After many, many, many months of waiting Monkey has finally lost a tooth!!
She was so excited as her tooth loosened. She wandered around the whole day exclaiming “I can’t believe I am about to lose a tooth!” Once she lost it she wandered around proclaiming “I can’t believe I lost a tooth!”. That one has continued.
Of course the Tooth Fairy left her a two dollar bill in a very fancy card. Being a fairy she can’t write anything, but her calling card was a lovely small green square with a silhouette of a fairy on it. I thought it was lovely.
Monkey opened it and proclaimed “Mom!! The tooth fairy has the same stationary you do!!”
I told her that fairies don’t have stationary and therefore she must have borrowed some from me. Oops.
I can’t believe how tiny her little tooth is!
It makes me all sniffly to see this little itty bitty tooth. My baby just keeps growing up.
