"I lost my tooth, Mom!"

When I picked Aubrey up from school yesterday, she smiled a new toothless smile and said, "I lost my tooth, Mom!" This was her very first tooth to lose, so she was so excited! She had even wanted to lose it at school because if you do, you get to go to the nurse's office and get a necklace that has a tooth-shaped tooth holder. The nurse also gave her a sticker to wear. She was beaming all afternoon and evening. She has been waiting and waiting to lose a tooth and finally, she did!

Look Mom!


Her new smile! If you look closely, the new tooth is actually already growing in!


Carefully placing her tooth in her "Tooth Fairy Pillow" as Ella excitedly watches.


Her pillow and letter to the tooth fairy(she had written this letter a couple of weeks ago when her tooth first became loose-it was so cute!)


This morning-SCORE! The tooth fairy decided to be extra nice to Aubrey and left her $2 since it was her first tooth. Aubrey was shocked! The tooth fairy also left a note stating what the tooth rate was for her(so she knows what to expect from here on out). The note said, "Congratulations Aubrey! $2 for the first tooth, $1 for each additional tooth. Love, The Tooth Fairy." Yea Aubrey! We're so happy you finally lost your tooth. Great job at wiggling it!



This morning, after Aubrey had found her money under her pillow, she took one of her dollars, wrote a note, and stuck it under Ella's pillow.

Could Aubrey be any sweeter? It just melted my heart. I have the sweetest girls ever! Ella was so happy. If you can't read it, it says, "Dear, Ella I just want you to fill good. Love, Aubrey." Its moments like these that make parenthood the best.

Addyson has already lost 6 teeth and she wanted to loose one at school so bad so she could get the tooth holder and necklace and it just never happened the way she wanted it to- Aubrey is lucky! What a great sister too, don't you just love it when they are so considerate of each other, those are moments that just make your heart melt.

Aubrey is the sweetest little girl! I can only hope Savy is as thoughtful and nice to her younger siblings as Aubrey is.
Way to go on losing your first tooth!

Aubrey you are so cute! Loosing your first tooth is so exciting and at school wow, you got your wish. I especially love that you were thinking of others when you got your treasure under your pillow. Ella I'm sure will also always remember when her big sister lost her first tooth. We are very proud of you, sad that you are growing up way too fast but know it's life.:( We love you very much and I'm sure the tooth fairy is smiling even bigger now and I bet the tooth she got from you is sparkling brighter than any of the other teeth she got that night. love nana & tata

Congrats Aubrey!! I am not looking forward to my kids losing their teeth. When they get all hangy and are constantly being wiggled by fingers and tongues....it totally grosses me out.
