A couple of firsts4 May , 2015
I finally got to hold the little man…awe…isn’t he cute?
And Nicola lost her first tooth!
The permanent tooth underneath was definitely ready to show up. The very next morning the little white points could already be seen poking through the gums.
Nicola accidentally pulled her tooth opening up a water bottle. There was a bit more blood than she was anticipating I gather, because the tears were huge. After she calmed down a bit and we rinsed her mouth with some cold water, she perked right up and proudly displayed the scene of the crime to anyone who wanted to see.
Shame, it does look a bit sore, doesn’t it?
The little culprit I’ve been keeping a cash float for, for aaaaages!
I printed out some stationery with the toothe fairy in the one corner and the tooth mouse in the other (cover all your bases) and my parents kindly left it out with the money I sent (Nicola arranged a sleep over for herself at Ouma and Oupa’s house just before this happened).
You cannot believe the levels of excitement! My mom said she hardly slept at all, waiting up for the tooth collectors.
This picture above is what she decided to buy with her tooth money. A fishy for the tank. Apparently his name is Sunshine…coming from a little mouth with a missing tooth it’s more like Shunshine though – so cute!
I’d like to say this photo was taken just before Nicola bothered to pick up her own Lego for the first time, but sadly i am still waiting for that particular first to happen. 😉
I do like the photo though…and the lego is safely back in toy jail after i had to pick it up for the third time that day.
