I lost a toof!

Posted in Family Outings, Uncategorized | 12 Comments »

Well, Ivy is growing more and more every day. Since she is a high achiever in all arenas of her life, teething included, when she was a baby she started teething at 2 months old. She has continued this advanced teething trend on into her mid-6’s. What I mean by that is that she has already lost 5 of her baby teeth and is moving on to permanent adult teeth.

And most recently, she lost one of her top teeth. Ta daaaa!

This photo was taken in the immediate aftermath of the tooth loss. You can see the apprehensive excitement on her face. I’ve noticed that since she has a huge gap her other front tooth looks really big and clunky. Not at all like the graceful front tooth I had come to know and love in the last few years. Most likely that one will be gone soon as well because it is very loose.

Ivy has a propensity for placing herself in front of moving people and objects. Almost all her teeth have been further loosened by getting hit in the mouth accidentally. I am not sure why this seems to happen to her so frequently, but it does.

Just this morning their friends Simon and Rachel came over to play, and Ivy placed herself squarely in the path of Simon’s whirling self. Blammo! Right in the toof. So no doubt another tooth fairy post is looming in the near future.

Play Time

I have been meaning to post this for a while, but I am just now getting around to it. This is play time at Ivy’s friend Amelia’s house. I love it that Violet is getting old enough to join in the action!
