A Big Day

Yesterday turned out to be a pretty eventful day for Little Miss Abby Kate! First, she got glasses! She absolutely LOVES her glasses and is still proudly showing them off to everyone. I get a little tickled at her because she is fascinated with her case and cleaning cloth. Even this morning she was asking me if when she turns 6 she can clean her own glasses. She is so eager to grow up and she is growing up right before our eyes.

Abby Kate has had a wiggly tooth for a few weeks now. I have to admit, the two things that gross me out more than anything else are the newborn umbilical cords and wiggly teeth. Joshua lost his umbilical cord while in the NICU and I had only hoped that Abby Kate would have lost hers while she was there too, but she didn't. I don't know what it is, but there is something about a loose tooth that turns my stomach.

On the way to church last night Abby Kate kept telling me about how much her tooth was moving. I was a little surprised to hear that my baby girl had pulled her own tooth in Bible class last night. She was beaming with pride and was so excited!!! Joshua was right there beside her just cheering her own and sharing the news about his twin with any and all who would listen.

Then the tooth fairy talk began...

Before I was able to tuck Abby Kate into bed she insisted upon writing a note to the tooth fairy. She wanted to make sure that the tooth fairy would be able to find her, so she wrote down the place where she lost her tooth. She was pleased with her note and tuck it under her pillow for the tooth fairy to find.

Jason and I had been trying to figure out what we wanted to do for our little family tradition. We had talked about money, books, toys, or candy. Well our tooth fairy came last night and left Abby Kate a new shiny quarter! She came bouncing out of her room this morning saying that the tooth fairy had brought her a PENNY!!! She was ecstatic!!! Jason took a good look at it and told her that it was a quarter and she was just as happy! She bagged up her treasure from the tooth fairy and brought it to school to share with her class. I'm glad that our tooth fairy settled on a reasonable amount. We do have 3 little babies who all have to lose a lot of baby teeth. :)

It seems like only yesterday that my sweet little baby girl was getting her first tooth. Jason and I had headed out for the evening for a Christmas party and my sister-in-law had come down to keep the twins for us. I remember driving back home and Tara calling to tell us that Abby Kate had a little tooth poking through her gums. We had no idea! She was only 5 months old (and she was born 7 weeks early) and hadn't acted like anything was bothering her. She definitely let us know about every other tooth that she had coming in after that first one.

So sweet! I love how proud she was of her glasses & that little lost tooth. I see that Joshua was wrong about the Tooth Fairy leaving $10...ha :)

The quarter is a great idea! We should've done that. Camden has not left his tooth under the pillow the last 2 times because he is scared of the tooth fairy. It's awful now when Carter loses a tooth because all thought the night Camden is calling us in there. He wont say that's what he scared of but its pretty obvious.

I know this is random, but I'm so glad to hear you as a mom say that umbillical cords gross you out. People act like I'm awful when I say that I'm 100% freaked out by them. : )


P.S. I really can't believe how fast she's growing up!
