Of course, THIS is the milestone she is early on.





That little tooth came out all on its own tonight! It has been wiggling something fierce lately, but we've told her to leave it alone. She's so YOUNG, she can't be losing teeth already! Tonight while brushing her teeth Josh said, "Uh oh, it's gone!" I made KayTar spit into my hand and there it was amongst the toothpaste bubbles. Her first baby tooth is out, just like that. Of course, I looked it up (because it seems so early!) and though 5 and 6 are the most common ages to lose baby teeth, as early as 4 or as late as 8 is still considered to be normal. I had no idea!

Now, if we could only get her potty trained, eh?

This is what the Tooth Fairy left her, along with a dollar!

there are a lot of 4 year olds at the preschool where I work that have lost teeth.

MQ is currently wiggling what will be her 5th lost tooth - it's sure to come out this week. I can't believe it!

Wow! By the time I was in kindergarten, I'd lost TWELVE teeth (suffice to say, I had the rest of the class beat hands down), so I probably started at about age four, too.

Congrats, cutie!

That is ridiculously sweet, and if it's ok with you, I am filing that idea for my girls' first lost tooth as wel

(That typo was going to drive me crazy). :)

I think at this age, Adam would lose his mind if one of his teeth came out. I hope KayTar handled it much better than he would!

The note is precious...you are too cute, m'dear.

And speaking of milestones...don't forget she learned to read while she was basically still in your womb! Okay, maybe that's a slight exaggeration, but I think it's a skill you are so used to her having that maybe you forget how amazing it is to the rest of us! :)

So funny! I hope she enjoyed whatever the tooth fairy left for her! I used to LOVE visits from the tooth fairy. There was always something so mysteriously sweet about her.

You are seriously the most effing awesome mom with that tooth fairy note and all. I couldn't comment on this post for the longest time b/c I'm kind of pissed at you for being so amazing.

Wow! Did you read that Bea's Bub just lost his tooth, too? That Kaytar -- she picks when she wants to be ahead of the curve.

Mir just lost her first tooth, today!

That is soooo exciting! And I love the note from the Tooth Fairy. We are on the cusp of tooth loss here too - same one on the bottom! ;)
