Last week, we had another of Jacob’s firsts - he lost his first tooth!! That little tooth had been getting wiggled and tongue bashed for just over two weeks before it decided to pop out. And just how did it finally pop out???
Well, Jacob was playing in the pool with his brothers, jumping in with a noodle. The time he forgets to completely close his mouth, the force of the water must have been just enough to free the tooth (it was hanging by a thread). It was so funny, seeing him pop up out of the water, wiping his eyes and carefully grinning. He popped his fingers in his mouth and pulled out the tooth and said “Woo hoo, the tooth fairy’s going to come!!”
I can assure you, there was absolutely no hassle in getting him organised for bed that night. PJ’s were on, teeth brushed, hugs and kisses given out all with a gappy smile. He got his orange cup of water and placed his tooth on his bedside table, near his lamp - so the tooth fairy could find her way.
When he woke up in the morning and found a shiny gold coin where his tooth once was, he was absolutely thrilled!
And to finish up, another pic of my newly gappy mouthed child - just because I think he’s terribly cute :)
