The Tooth Fairy

Well, Leah had her first visit from the Tooth Fairy. We gently tucked her first tooth into her Tooth Fairy pillow and anticipated the arrival of the T.F.. BTW, the first tooth she lost was her very first baby tooth. Let's pause while I dry my eyes. It's too fast I tell you, too fast! Okay, back to the tale of the Tooth Fairy. The T.F. pillow came with a sweet story about how the T.F. came to be and how she takes each child's tooth and turns it into a star while leaving a coin in place of the tooth because she was taking something that wasn't hers and wanted to leave something in its place. Sweet, right? When Leah awoke this morning, the T.F. left her five gold coins (the $1 coins). Now she wants to stay up super late tonight to find her tooth-star in the sky. She says it's going to be the littlest one. Let's hope for a star-filled night tonight!

4:11am July 15, 2009

This is the exact time Leah lost her first tooth! She woke up due to a bad dream about a fox. When she wakes up from a bad dream, she likes to tell you, in detail, about it. While she was telling me about her fox dream, she stopped and asked, "Want to feel how wiggly my tooth is?" As I went to see that wiggly tooth, she pushed it with her tongue and out it came. Total excitement because now the tooth fairy would come.

I Lub You

Carly is becoming quite the little talker. Almost everything she says is a phrase or sentence. Some of my favorite words right now are "Tinkebell" and "elephant". Something about those three syllable words sound so cute. But yesterday I heard the words that were the sweetest of all. She kept saying, "I lub you. I lub you Papa. I lub you Mama. I lub you Weah."

Our precious Carly-girl, we lub you! Oh you make my heart melt.
