As expected, front tooth #2 has fallen. Again, I mean that literally. It. Just. Fell. Out. Alex was playing in the living room with Adam and it dropped from his mouth. We had to do a little scavenging on the floor to find it.

Alex's Tooth

He has a couple of loose teeth on the bottom that he is treating as gingerly as these two on the top. I suppose they’ll be much easier to keep tabs on since gravity won’t be working against us. The teeth will likely just tip over in his mouth.


Alex’s front tooth has been loose f-o-r-e-v-e-r! No one could touch it, except for him, of course, and even then, he would only wiggle it with his tongue. Anyway, today, the tooth fell out. Literally. It simply dropped from his mouth.

Now, the tooth right next door has been loose, as well. I’m expecting it to drop in the next day or two…in just the same way.


Congratulations, Cindy Lou! You look beautiful!

Now he real fun begins. We’re meeting with the dentist soon to layout the road-map for the final phase of “Project Mouth Overhaul” 😉

Yesterday, Adam lost his first tooth with a little assistance from his brother who popped him in the mouth! The lower central incisor had been loose for a couple of weeks and we could see his adult tooth coming in behind it, so the mechanism of loss wasn’t THAT big of a deal.

Adam's Tooth

Anyway, I put the tooth in a little baggie and told Adam to put it under his pillow when he went to sleep and the Tooth Fairy would take it and leave him some money. So, at bedtime, we placed the baggie under his pillow and he drifted-off to dreamland. Just before the “Tooth Fairy” went to bed, he pulled the ol’ “Indiana Jones” switcheroo, leaving behind a dollar bill in a baggie. All was right with the world until about 4:00 a.m. when Adam came into mommy and daddy’s bedroom with tears in his eyes. He was all upset because evidently, the Tooth Fairy took his tooth and left nothing in return!

Mommy comforted Adam and let him climb into bed with her (daddy missed this exchange because he was asleep). In the morning, Mommy took Adam to his bedroom and they found the a dollar in a baggie that had fallen behind his headboard. The Tooth Fairy had come through after all!

Although relieved that he hadn’t been shafted, Adam was still disappointed, as he “was going to need a lot more to buy some toys.”

Alex is cutting three teeth. He doesn’t really like teething rings, instead, he prefers the wooden front rail of his crib…

Evidently, this is a common occurrence because Cindy and I were able to order some teething pads made especially for crib rails.

Go figure!
