Hannah’s middle teeth top and bottom started getting loose almost 2 months ago. I’ve been shocked how long it takes these little chompers to fall out from the time they start to move!
This morning when she woke up she asked me to check out her wiggliest tooth…which is something she’s been doing no less than ummm…5 times a day for about….oh yah, 2 months!
Today when I wiggled her bottom tooth on her left it was wiggly…really wiggly. I asked her if she wanted me to try and pull it out, fully expecting to be met with a resounding ‘NO!’ Instead she excitedly said ‘YES!’ I grabbed a tissue but just couldn’t get a good grasp on that little thing so I asked her if she wanted to try. She grabbed hold and ‘pop’….it was out! I think we were both surprised at how easily it came out now that it was ready!!! It bled for a few seconds and then it was done. She looked at me with her little tooth grasped between her fingers and smiled her first gappy grin; well…her first gappy grin in about 6 1/2 years!
Hannah showing off her first tooth that she got at 11 1/2 months old. I was told the later babies get their teeth often the later they lose them and this has proven true for Hannah as she’s now almost 7 1/2 and has just lost her first one.
