Alex loses her 1st tooth!

March 12, 2012 - Alex turned 7 last month and we were beginning to wonder if she was the only 7 year old on the planet that hasn't lost a tooth! All I can say is that she must be a late bloomer like her Mama :)

Tonight after dinner Alex and I were talking and I asked her if she thought it was time to pull the tooth.  She anxiously said, "Oh yeah baby, it's ready to go!"  So like any good Mom, I pull out the iPad and start researching "how to pull a baby tooth" - ha!  The idea of dental floss and slamming doors just didn't sit well with me and Daddy doesn't "do blood" so I knew I was on my own.  After reading one article, I laughed and said, "Come here, I am just gonna pull this sucker out on my own."  And I did.  I reached in with a napkin and yanked that bad boy out.  She was sooo excited and proud and shocked.  She never complained of pain, thought the blood was "actually awesome" and she immediately started "FaceBlogging" (ha - what she calls FaceTime) her fam & friends to show off.  A few favorite quotes I overheard on the phone:
* I can't believe I have a huge ole hole in my head
* Daddy was a total scardey-cat. He went into the other room and played a game on his phone so he wouldn't freak out
* My mommy did it all by herself.  I am proud of Mama. (awww!)
* I think you guys should stop talking about yourselves and start talking about the really big thing that just happened in MY life.  (I am not even kidding - word for word!)

Love my girl!  She is such a trip. to fetch the Tooth Fairy.  Good times.  The best times, really.

Our proud girl

She took this picture so we could always remember what the little fella looks like

The "hole in her head" she was bragging about
