Tooth #8 and how it happened...

Just before Christmas, while Jade was rehearsing for the 1st grade Christmas program, her cute friend challenged her to pull out her somewhat loose tooth. Jade tugged and tugged. It finally came out. It bled and bled but she got on the school tooth board and got a cute little pink box to put her tooth in.
Why am I telling you this now? Well, as you know, we have a tradition of taking pictures of Jade with her tooth or at least the gap. We kept meaning to take the picture, but then we'd be running late and she'd come home looking exhausted and so it went. For months. Finally, in January, I set up my new lights and just played around a little with her. She wasn't dressed cute, her hair wasn't done and I'm not sure she had even brushed her teeth yet. But she wanted to finally document her tooth.

Why did I wait another month to finally post the pictures? Well, I meant to have Jade tell me the story and put it in her words. After so much time had passed, the story- according to Jade- was just about what was written in the first paragraph. So much for her being a gifted story teller. :)
