Nick lost his first baby tooth!

Tonight Nicholas grew up just a little bit. He lost his first baby tooth. It all started with an apple, and the next thing we knew, that tooth was out!

It's been five years since he got his first tooth, and I think that it is that same first tooth that he lost.

I've heard that is the way it happens. Here's a picture of Nick when he got his first tooth. He was around nine months old, I believe.

Since there was a decent amount of blood and Nick's mouth was a bit sore, we had frozen fruit smoothies (with Greek yogurt) for dinner.

The smoothies were a celebration, but the real excitement is the visit the tooth fairy will have to make later tonight. When I lost my last few teeth, I believe it was the mid-1980s and I got a quarter. I'm pretty sure inflation has brought up the price. Wait--I just googled it. Would you believe there's a calculator for this? Looks like the tooth fairy will leave at least $1.

Poor Henry was jealous. I had to stop him from grinding his teeth tonight. He though that would make them come out. He will have to wait a few years for his turn.

  1. Oh, how time flies! I can't believe Nick has already lost his first tooth. I bet you're very proud of him for not being scared at all when he lost his first baby tooth. Anyway, I'm sure a healthy tooth will grow into its place in there soon enough. Thanks for sharing that! All the best to the whole family! :)
