The First One!

!!!Tap, Tap, Tap on my back is all I can remember feeling at 3 a.m. this morning. I made a poor attempt to ignore it for a moment, but then it started to worry me. I prayed it was one of my kids and not some crazy-insane burglar trying to wake me. Because, you know.... burglars usually try to be polite and wake you from a sleep in the most polite way possible. Moving on.... it was Andrew. I barely parted my eyelids, squinted at him in the dark and said, "WHAT?" in a whisper-yell type voice. Turns out, he had good reason to wake me. He explained. "Mommy, I was moving my tooth back and forth, and up and down, and I got it out!" I've never seen a child.....wait....... ANYONE so happy at 3 a.m. He had promised me he'd pull his tooth out today. His dad and I had been pestering him to take care of it the evening before because at this point it's been loose for almost 3 months and just hanging by a thread. I sent him off with a "Good Job Buddy. Put it on your desk and don't lose it. Now go back to sleep." Ha! I'm so nice at 3 a.m. I never quite got back to a deep slumber. I'm beyond exhausted... but at least I get to start my day with a big smile from a little less toothy son. Another milestone to add to the list!

And I KNOW you all are jumping out of your recliner just waiting to see what it looks like -

There's the tooth! Did you think I meant the smile??? No. I haven't grabbed a snapshot of his new grin. He's tired... still in bed sleeping. I wonder why??? Maybe it was all that pushing, pulling, turning, yanking and excitement at 3 a.m. this morning.

It's 6:30 p.m. and I'm editing my blog post to add one of the cutest pictures I've ever caught of Andrew. I love his new silly grin!
