the toothfairy visits



Isla's two front bottom teeth have been loose for MONTHS! it was weird to discover...she is, infact, only 3. well, we've been wiggling and wiggling...and we have even checked out books from the library about the toothfairy. she has been so excited, she even wrote the toothfairy a letter (just like the girl in one of her books). but still, those two teeth just stayed attached.

then tonight, after her bath, we were goofing around...i was tickling her all over and missed and hit her tooth. it went all the way back and when she put her finger in her mouth to check for damage, she pulled the tooth out!! that's right, folks, i feel like a real parent tonight. i have a child old enough to LOSE teeth.
she was so excited she called everyone she knew! Booboo was home, grandma was not, and meredith couldn't understand her. very intelligent conversations going on.

Wow! I can't believe Isla has already lost a tooth! She's so cute and looks so pleased with herself.

Way to go Isla!!... and mom for knocking it out, ha! Isla's a tough little cookie for not being freaked out about it at such a young age... probably because her mommy was so good at preparing her with reading those books about it.

Well Isla, I hope the toothfairy was good to you. Congratulations!

I am shocked at how well she handled her tooth falling out! Dylan was the same way. He even wanted me to get some dental floss and wrap it around the tooth to pull it out. Yuck! I was a little freaked and grossed out to do it! I actually told him to wait another day to see if it would fall out on its own, because I didn't want to do it. Anyway...we waited till the next day and I got up the courage to pull it for him. It still gross' me out thinking about it. I'm such a baby! :)

I can't believe she lost a tooth already-what a sweetheart. We are getting ready for Team Raquel here, my flab has never hurt so much!!

Wow! Isla lost a tooth way to go. Jacob would be freaking out. So did she come? Did the tooth fairy leave you some nice cash? ~This is veronique, not Roger.

Hey Anna, super cute blog! Isla and Macrae are adorable. I can't believe she lost a tooth already. That's insane.

That is pretty dang shocking... I've never heard of such a thing but you know, she does have a LOT of teeth in that little mouth!

funny how she got 'em early & lost 'em early:) it looks like she's holding an electrical outlet in her hands too:)

How exciting! I hope that the tooth fairy doesn't ever forget little Isla, I guess if she does, she and Ellie can relate. I haven't even thought to talk to Raegan about losing teeth and the tooth fairy, maybe I should start!
