Guess who lost his first tooth tonight?!!?!

He is so excited and I'm excited for him!!! His two bottom teeth have been loose forever (since before his dentist appointment this last June) but have managed to stay in there. We've checked them just about every day and they have gotten a little looser each time. Well today he told us that one of them felt "really" loose. We've heard this before and told him that it was probably getting closer to coming out. Sure enough, tonight he worked on it and worked on it and out it came. There were some tears at one point, but by the end he was so happy. We are going to wait to put it under his pillow until tomorrow night so he can surprise his Memaw at work tomorrow and show her. He already called Duchess to let her know, because she is out of town.

So what's the going rate on teeth anyway? We told him the Tooth Fairy always pays extra for the first one. He is so sweet that he said he wants to put it towards the Disney Fund for next summer. I told him that he needed to put it in his piggy bank and that I'd match whatever the Tooth Fairy left and put it in the fund. Looks like I'm going to be out $30, but I wouldn't trade it for the world!!! Man I love this kid!!

****I am grateful for
1) new milestones
2) lost teeth
3) adorable missing teeth smiles
4) the excited in my little guy's eyes tonight
5) the Tooth Fairy

The Tooth Fairy brought Cadence $5 for her first tooth (because I didn't want to take her to the dentist to have it pulled!), and it's been $1 for the others.

Congrats Chase!!

Yay, Chase! I'm so excited for you and can't wait to see your new smile in person! I wonder how much money you'll get from the tooth fairy! ;o)

Love,
