Belle lost her first tooth. It actually happened last Wednesday, but I am just now getting around to posting about it. Sorry about that! It was pretty big news at our house! We had been wiggling it for quite a while and anticipating the big day, and then at lunch on Wednesday it finally came out! Daddy had to pull it just a bit, but it really was barely hanging on. Hard to believe our girl is so big! Look how cute she is with her gap! She has been so excited to show it off to everyone!
Showing off the tiny tooth
The tooth fairy came and gave her a whole dollar covered in pixie dust. She was SO excited about it.
We weren’t sure if we were going to do the tooth fairy or not, but decided that day to go for it. Belle loves fairies and we knew it would be so fun for her. Daddy explained to her that she would put her tooth under her pillow and then the tooth fairy would take her tooth a leave a surprise. That night as the girls were going to bed they were arguing about whether it was real or pretend and whether or not Daddy was telling the truth. Whoops. Maybe not exactly what we wanted! Confusing reality and fantasy and doubting the word of Daddy! And then Belle prayed asking God to please let the tooth fairy come and take her tooth and leave her a surprise. Hopefully she won’t be too messed up! It sure was amazing to see how excited she was and how much she loved that glittery dollar!
