Tooth Number 3

In our house, you can't put your tooth under your pillow until we've had a photo shoot. I have to point out that I am not the one that drives that behaviour. Jade insists and picks where she wants to take the pictures. She gets so excited showing her cute little tooth. We've been wiggling it for months. The past week its been really loose. We have a rule that only Mommy can pull it out. It freaks Daddy out- I guess it's gross. (The one with the gag reflex has no problem with it- go figure). Unfortunately, Mommy didn't get to pull this one out. Jade was heading into gymnastics on Monday and had spent the whole day wiggling it. She was worried about it falling out during gymnastics, so Miss Kim pulled it out for her. It's amazing that she isn't even 6 and has lost 3 teeth. Although, our friend Bella has lost more teeth and they are the same age. It just means we have to take extra good care of her new teeth for a longer period of time.

I love this toothless grin- and the toothless lisp it is creating.

That's the cutest little toothless grin I've ever seen! The photo shoot tradition is a great idea. Really fun photos!

I love that every event is worthy of a studio-quality photo shoot for her. I like the first shot the best. Great DOF (you can just make out the gap in her grin) and beautiful red.

So now you are a photographer?? Is there anything you can't do? Thankfully, Bella has slowed down of losing teeth. She stopped at EIGHT! They are finally started to grow back so she can eat again. I am so impressed with all of your talents!
