Sweet Shot Tuesday

Sweet Shot Day

Happy Tuesday!  Only 4 days until Christmas!  Are you ready?  I can honestly say that I’m 95% ready (just a couple of gifts to do).  Our Christmas cards did come in yesterday evening, so it’ll be a race to see if we can get them out in time for Christmas.  Thankfully I  have most of the out-of-town ones addressed, so it’s a matter of lugging the three kiddos to the post office to get stamps.

Anyway, here’s a sweet shot for today… my oldest son lost one of his top front teeth!  Let me tell you, this thing was hanging on for dear life for about 1 1/2 weeks.  He’d wiggle it and would be afraid to finally pull it out.  It finally came out yesterday.  Now he can sing the old song “All I Want for Christmas is My Two Front Teeth.”  I’ll have to post that song if I can figure out how to do it.

I must tell you, I do get kind of teary-eyed when he loses a tooth (this is his third).  I remember anxiously waiting for those little baby teeth to appear on that gummy smile only about 6.5 years ago.  I remember the sleepless nights that he (and we) had when they were coming in and I remember the trouble it was when he decided to use other people as his teething toy.  Now this little baby tooth will be replaced by an adult tooth that he won’t quite grow into for another few years.  I know his whole look will change once his top two front teeth both come in.

Anyway, let’s see if I can do this video link… NOTE: It posted, but you have to click it twice to play it (it takes you directly to YouTube)

    Aww. This made me get a little lump in my throat– the part about how you stayed up nights when those baby teeth were growing in. I know I’ll be the same way. Blessings to you and yours this season and always. ❤

    This is so cute – reminds of that song “all I want for Christmas is my 2 front teeth.”

    Hello, dear Robin! : ) Love this shot of your little man! It is sad when they start giving us these undeniable signs that they are growing up right before our eyes. Most days you can ignore it because being with them day in and day out you simply aren’t able to see it. But then something like this happens and it hits you like a ton of bricks, doesn’t it? Just love every moment and savor them all. : ) And snap those photos!

    Hope that you and your family have a blessed and merry Christmas! Be safe in your travels and enjoy visiting your family. : )

    Oh gosh… I know this is coming soon for Keegan and I’m so not ready. Our babies are getting big way too fast. This is precious!

    Awwww! I will feel the same I’m sure when our last two go through this stage. Right now we have four losing teeth all at the same time. I’m a bit over the gross factor of it all.

    Merry Christmas!
