toothless smile

jaden lost his very first tooth last week and i can't help but feel that with that one tooth he's lost all traces of babyhood.  something about that toothless smile makes him look like such a big kid.  not a baby, not a toddler, not a preschooler...but a big kid.  i didn't expect this to happen until at least first or second grade!  i was so unprepared that when his tooth first started wiggling, he mistook my surprise as fear and he got worried.  luckily, that was immediately replaced with pride and excitement when i told him all about the tooth fairy.  now he won't stop asking when his next baby tooth will come out!  i guess we'll be having many visits from the tooth fairy here on out...

hope everyone is enjoying the last few days of 2014!
