The Tooth, The Whole Tooth, & Nothing but the Tooth...erh, I MeanTeeth :)

After decorating our tree, Hope wanted me to wiggle her was sooo loose! So, we pulled that little sucker out in no time. No tears, just she is showing off her newest "empty hole". She already has two "empty holes" on the bottom. So, now there are three, how is she ever going to eat?

Yesterday, while we were walking home from school, she said nonchalantly, "Will you pull my other loose tooth?" So, I said sure if it was ready. Which I already knew it was. And in a minute or so after being home...the other tooth was outta there! Here she is with her new NO front teeth smile :)
I guess she can really sing that song, "All I want for Christmas is my two front teeth" and she would be telling the tooth...I mean, truth :) As much as I would like to say this molting, if you will, is over, I can't. She has a very loose tooth on the bottom and it will be any day and that baby will be out too. I am not pushing her on that will not be replaced until around age 9 or 2 or 3 Years!! I think the reasoning behind all the tooth loss is her permanent teeth are going to be some big ole doosies! They get in the way of the roots of their baby neighbors and the babies get confused and their roots begin shrinking from the pressure. Which makes them loose and fall out. Does that make a lick of sense? At least that is my hypothesis. And being a registered dental hygienist, I think I might know what I am talking about. But, I could be wrong, so don't quote me, ok? :)

She is such beautiful girl, teeth or no teeth. I love that she is so adventurous and courageous, she'll probably end up being a foreign missionary or something. Miss you guys oh and I love Love's glasses so cute.
