Shark teeth


Nico is finally on the verge of losing one of his baby teeth.

Even though he is 7 now and all of his peers have moved on to "big teeth", Nico is still holding on to all of his little ones. His jaw has grown a lot in the past year, but his little baby teeth have remained the same size, which makes his smile look a little jack-o-lanterny with all the space between each tooth.

Nico has had one wiggly front bottom tooth for a month now; the permanent tooth has already backed up behind it and poked out like a tiny iceberg. Now he looks like a shark!

Jake lost his first tooth yesterday. I would not reccommend the use of pixie dust under the pillow. Our tooth fairy thought it would be more magical...it was for him. However, it was more of a mess for me.
