Drew Lost His First Tooth - 4/4/14

My sweet Drew lost his first tooth on April 4th!  When I took the boys to the dentist in March, they took Xrays of their teeth.  When the hygenist looked at Drew's, she said, "You are going to be able to buy a house in Florida with all of the tooth fairy money that you are about to get!"  Ha!  I went straight into panic mode and went to work on his tooth fairy pillow.  Priorities, People!  ;)

We had gotten everything prepped (i.e. Daddy positioned to pull, "last" picture of his full smile, camera ready, video camera rolling) several times, just sure that little tooth was going to come out with the next tug.  However, it wasn't ready to come out until 4/4.

We took a last picture of his smile with all of its baby teeth...

Daddy tried with string first, but it didn't cut it.
One try with a paper towel, though, and that tiny tooth was a goner.  :(

 Drew's new gap smile with a gap on the bottom.  So cute!
 I love this picture of him seeing his smile for the first time!  He looks like Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone.  Haha!
 Drew picked out the design and fabric for his tooth fairy pillow.  It turned out pretty cute!
 He woke up to a nice, new $20 bill in his pillow.  Whoa - the tooth fairy was very generous!
It was a fun milestone for my Drew!  It just so happens that he lost his other bottom, middle tooth the following day.  He very well might be able to buy a house in Florida before too long.  ;)

Sarah!!! I was starting to get worried about the lack of blogging. Sooo glad to see the updates! Oh, Drew sure does look like Macauley Caulkin! Hilarious! xoxo

How adorable! Your dentist announced the news of his loose tooth in such a friendly way, that Drew was so thrilled the moment he heard it. In any case, with his baby tooth gone, I'm sure a new permanent tooth will settle into place soon. I'd keep an eye out for it, if I were you. Thanks for sharing that! All the best! :)
