Tooth Number 7

2016 04 22 07.24.01 Seventh Tooth, April 22, 2016, 7:24 p.m.

The Seventh Tooth extracted this morning, April 22, 2016, 7:24 p.m.

From Daddy: Last night, he pointed out a very wiggly tooth (just to the right of his bottom front teeth, from his perspective). It was quite wiggly, but I didn’t think that I could extract it without too much pain. We tried a few times–he even got out of bed after the lights were out because he claimed that he couldn’t stand the wiggliness anymore. In the end, we waited until morning.

This morning, the tooth was only marginally more wiggly, but he was willing to endure a bit of pain. I twisted on the tooth–a bit of pain–but then it wasn’t too difficult to remove the tooth afterward.

He was happy with the extraction. He had a great story to tell (including to Yeah-Yeah and Ngen-Ngen tonight at dinner). I was proud of him!

Currently, he is in bed and the tooth is in an envelope under his pillow.

We were all very happy!

Distracted Basketball

From Daddy: He was distracted yesterday on the basketball court (click above or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vddw3Xs9p_c on your mobile device). We have next week off for Easter, so maybe he can regroup.

Last Night

After he washed up, I asked if he was ready for bed. He said, no, but he was “ready to snuggle with Mommy, and you’re very welcome to join us.” Awwwww.
