a brand new hole

After much hesitation, a few tears and a lot of words of encouragement, we now have a reason for the Tooth Fairy to make an appearance in the Marlin household tonight.

Elizabeth has been wiggling her wobbly tooth for a couple weeks now to discover tonight as she was brushing her teeth that she could push it out with her tongue to the point it was hanging (yuck!). We didn't want her to swallow it while she was sleeping so we encouraged her to pull it out. In the end I "helped" it along and it wasn't a big deal.

She is so ecstatic about her new hole in her smile that I think her smile goes from one cheek to the other. What a big girl!

Sweet dreams baby girl! I hope the Tooth Fairy brings you something good!

Oh my gosh, how cute Elizabeth looks with the new "window" in her mouth. She's growing up too fast!! We are so excited for her and know the tooth fairy will just LOVE her tooth. It's a good thing she has taken such good care of her teeth all these years, it will make the tooth fairy very proud.
We love & miss you all!
