Lost her first tooth

April 26th, 2013 Mark

Sophia has finally lost her first tooth. I picked her up from school today and the second thing I noticed (the first thing I noticed was the pink Yankee hat) that her tooth finally fell out. It has been dangling there for a couple of days and finally her classmates talked her into pulling it out herself.  She was so proud, smiled that whole evening. We came home and placed it in her “tooth pillow” awaiting for the Tooth Fairy to arrive.
