Lizzy's first Lost Tooth...or Teeth!!

So Lizzy had been complaining that her lower front teeth hurt. Being a paranoid former dental assistant, I immediately thought that she had cavities! I checked it out and they looked fine. A couple of days later, I see two adult teeth growing in behind them! How did I not even think of that?! They weren't even loose! I had to take her to the dentist to get them pulled because I was worried that they might grow in crooked like they were already doing. She was so brave. She didn't even flinch! The dentist hooked her up to nitrous, turned on the t.v. on the ceiling and popped them both out in two seconds. Look at all the loot she got just for loosing two teeth! A smoothie (eaten with a spoon of course), presents from the dollar store and a pack of Pez refills for her dispenser. And that is BEFORE the tooth fairy! What a cute girl.

So cute! I had to do the same thing with Hailey because she had a stubborn tooth too! Good job Lizzy!

I can't believe how grown up she is looking. Stay young Lizzy!

You'll always be my pretty little princess!

Sam has done the same thing too. But she was petrified of us pulling it out. Her first loose tooth was loose for 4 months! She wouldn't let us go near it, and her Dentist Grandpa said "no big deal it will eventually come out". Two mature teeth started to poke up in behind and I figured they wouldn't move forward much more because they were so huge compared to the space to fit in. And if you look at both Jeff and I, she was bound to need breaces anyway! Well they are both finally out and now her top two are loose!

P.S. I have loved reading your updates
