That first tooth is a doozy.

We've had a rough couple of weeks. Kate was sick, and then Andy was sick, and missed an entire week of school. In the middle of it he also lost his first tooth. That was traumatic. I realized it was loose in the morning, and he had it out by about 2:00 that afternoon--just kept wiggling it the whole time. And then once it was out he cried and kept trying to put it back. We try to explain to him what's going on, but I don't think he really understands. Sad! 

It was a couple of days before I could get photos of his gap. You can see the new tooth peeking up already. (His lips are a bit puffy from all the poking and worrying.)

I'm not looking forward to repeating this experience! Maybe future teeth will get easier.
