It's amazing how long a wiggly tooth can hang around (literally). After almost two months of wiggliness, Neve's tooth finally came out while she was eating ice cream the other day. Ice cream isn't your traditional tooth-jarring food, but there were smarties involved. In fact, she thought the tooth was a smartie, but spit it out just to make sure.
Even though this was the fourth tooth she's lost, she was still pretty excited. It makes me feel kind of sad though - I know they'll grow back (hopefully straighter than the bottom ones are) - it's just another step from the little girl stage to the not-so-little girl with missing teeth stage, followed by the awkward adolescent with braces stage. Oh well, it's still better than the toilet-training stage or awake-in-the-night stage. Right??
