This seems like such a huge milestone. It first hit me when we noticed the bottom left front tooth was loose the week before Christmas. Then the bottom right. Then the two adult teeth started growing in behind. Pretty soon it was like, just fall out already! But secretly, I knew the event would be a little bittersweet for me. I love to enjoy these milestones with Valerie and celebrate how big she's getting, but at the same time I just want "put a brick on her head" as my grandma used to tell my sister and I, to keep us from growing up. I totally get it now.
Off to pick up a brick. Make that two bricks.
