Josie Loses A Tooth

Josie has officially lost her first tooth.  Well, actually it's the second tooth that she lost, but she does not count the tooth that was yanked out of her mouth by her brother and a blanket when she was two. 

The tooth has been loose for weeks.

In attempt to pry get it out of her mouth, Josie had been wiggling it for days.

She wiggled.

She moved it from side to side.

She wiggled that tooth before she ate.  

And she wiggled that tooth after she ate... 

And all her hard work paid off.  Especially once I reached into her mouth and yanked the tooth out myself.

Look at that smile:

The missing two teeth are on the bottom.  The tooth that looks like it's missing from the top, is actually half-way pushed into the roof of her mouth.  The same thing happened to Georgia but in Georgia's case, it could be traced back to an accident that we had all witnessed.  No one knows what happened to Josie to cause her tooth to retreat back into her gums.  I guess we'll never know.

Josie was so proud of her tooth-losing skills...

She immediately marched into Georgia's room to show her the tooth and the gaping hole it left in her mouth.

Georgia was not very impressed.

Josie went into the bathroom to admire her new smile:

And finally, she put the tooth under her pillow for the tooth fairy to find.

It's so fun to get older!
