one less tooth by you.

“I lost a tooth.”

I am asking myself, didn’t they just come in?

Ian was very brave for this momentous event of losing his first baby tooth.  He just wiggled it until it was ready and then he pulled it out.  Simple as that.  Which shocked me because he usually has a total meltdown when he hurts himself or feels any pain. 

So, this little milestone has proven to me that he is growing up and little by little or tooth by tooth his babyhood is falling away and boyhood is arriving. 

It’s exciting with a little sadness mixed in.
