My Baby's Missing a Tooth!

Molly has had four front teeth loose for a really long time - - going on 5 months. The last time we were at the dentist, the hygenist told us the roots were completely dissolved already. While the Hinderakers were here, Alex lost a tooth, and that made Molly even MORE eager to be like the big girls. So she started wiggling and wiggling and wiggling. Yesterday i took this picture just before she started asking for us to try to pull it - My last picture of my baby girl with a full mouth of baby teeth. . .

It started aching last night from all the tugging, so Molly decided to give it up for the night. But tonight . . . she decided to be very brave and try again. So tonight - May 25, 2009 - Molly let Jeff pull her first wiggly-front baby tooth. She'll never have that baby face again. That is one thing this mommy always sheds tears over. They never look quite the same - innocent, sweet, babyface - as they do before those baby teeth start falling out. Here are the post-loss pictures. Molly was VERY brave, and eager to match what Alex had done last night!

She thought it was really funny that her tongue could kind of poke through the gap where the tooth was supposed to be!

Congratulations, Molly! We hope the tooth fairy is very good to you!
