Toothless Wonder

Last school year, Kirsten was convinced that she would never loose any teeth.  By April she was actually the only first grader at her school not on the tooth chart.  Luckily for us, she lost her first tooth on Memorial Day, with only four days to spare and made it on the tooth chart!  

Then the night before starting second grade, she lost her second bottom tooth.  Then two weeks ago she lost her first top tooth.  It was hanging sideways and pushed her other one straight out in front.
Her other top tooth was not loose two days ago.  The permanent tooth was coming in behind it and it was sticking straight out in front, making it hard to eat and it kept cutting her lip.  On Friday, Kirsten had a bloody nose after school and when helping her clean it up, I accidentally hit her tooth and knocked it loose.  After two days of wiggling, last night Jeremy was able to pull it.  So now she is missing all four front teeth! (Or really half of each of her front teeth, because the others are already coming in)
 She looks completely adorable and sounds even cuter!  We took almost an hour worth of videos last night of making her talk for us. My little girl is growing up and getting bigger everyday!  She is my Toothless Wonder!

It certainly does change the way she looks when she smiles--she is still beautiful!!!!
