Lost Tooth!

Monday, May 21st, 2007

At nearly 7.5 years old, zelly has finally lost her first tooth.

And here’s a fabulous close up:

Last week, she showed us that a new tooth was coming in, but her tooth wasn’t loose yet! Thankfully, the next day it loosened up (a lot!) and was out within a few days. Here, you can see the new tooth:

Zelly put her tooth under her pillow for the tooth fairy after the following discussion:
z: Mama, how does the tooth fairy get under my pillow?
me: well, that’s a good question! I don’t know, since I was always asleep when she came.
z: hrm. okay.
The tooth fairy left a gold dollar coin. According to zelly, some kids are getting $10 for a tooth… I guess the fairy that comes to our house is a bit more reasonable!
