Tooth Fairy is goin' broke

Let me tell you, it's ALL ABOUT TEETH in our house lately. Hayden has been teething badly for over a week (not fun) and based on what the boy lets me see when I try to pry his mouth open he's got about 4-5 sharp-as-shark-teeth coming in at the same time. Poor boy. Poor mommy and daddy and sisters' ears.

But on to the main event. Amanda has lost 2 teeth in 3 days time. That's become her pattern. She usually loses teeth two at a time. But now - that mouth. YIKES! She kinda looks like a hockey player pre-dentures. It's cute, 'cause she's my kid. But if ever there will be an awkward stage of her life, this is it. Good thing she's got 150% self-esteem and 200% attitude... that ought to get her through it... that and the buck a tooth payout she's getting from the "tooth fairy".

{please excuse the picture - Amanda really didn't want her picture taken
- she claimed that it *hurts to smile* phfftt....whatever.}

Sophie has her first loose tooth. It's been loose about 2+ weeks now. We all want to pull it but are too freaked out. You can see the other tooth coming in totally crooked behind it. It's a cool right of passage.

Maybe we need to start saving NOW for when Addy starts to loose her teeth! It seems like it can get expensive. Good luck!

Oh my goodness! She is growing up so fast. I remember when she was a little baby and cried and cried whenever we went to restaurants. And now look at her...growing and losing teeth!
