Toothy


I honestly wasn't expecting this to happen so soon. MY little boy, my baby boy is losing teeth?? He kept asking me when he would start losing his baby teeth and I remember shrugging and saying,"I dunno, when your like 7 or something." I obviously need to read more child development books because a week before his 6th birthday little toothy started to wiggle free.
Then another toothy started to wiggle. Then another. Then one by one, four teeth were completely out by 3 weeks time!
I quickly sewed together a felt tooth fairy pillow so he'd have somewhere to put his first tooth.
I told him the Tooth Fairy would come and exchange it for a prize. (wink, wink)
He didn't believe me, of course, but loved to play along anyways.

My little guy looks all grown up with his missing baby teeth, and big, awkward adult teeth growing in. But he'll always be my little Budgie. He still loves to hold onto his Mama and cuddle tight. He loves to be with me day and night.
He's really funny and makes lots of jokes. He likes to tell me that we're both 6 because when you add 3+3 it makes the same age number (I'm 33). He laughs hysterically and tells me I'll be 6 1/2 soon, so not to worry. I think I'm the one who's worrying.

Don't grow up too fast, my little boy.
