The First Tooth

Here's my six-year-old.
Gabe is growing up so fast.
He came home from school today and talked about visiting the first grade classroom, learning all about what they'll be doing in first grade next year.

I can't believe I'm going to have a first grader!
But by the looks of things, that's not the only change that's coming...

Do you see it? Look a little closer...

Yes, Gabe's tongue is pushing that loose tooth right out of there!
His first loose tooth, soon to be his first LOST tooth.
I don't know if it's the pregnancy hormones or just my natural sensitivity, but upon seeing this loose tooth I teared up.
Gabe's response...'Don't worry mom. I have other teeth!'
Ahhh, sweet boy. You just don't get it.
Mom just wants you to stay little a little while longer.
But alas, I fear it's inevitable.
My boy is growing up!

Oh my goodness! You know he is going to look adorable missing that tooth. I bet he is pretty excited. Can you believe Kinzley's top front two are loose now? She barely has her bottom two grown in :)

Shawna ~ Gabe is super excited to be losing his first tooth. He shows EVERYONE! Kinzley is just ahead of her time, both in growing up and in losing teeth :) What a cutie!
