Pops lost her first baby tooth today! I am feeling a little sad as I remember when I first saw the tip of that tooth poke through her angry red gums at 5 months old. I can’t believe we have reached another milestone already. Boo hoo!
Pops is not normally so good in the pain/blood/loose teeth kind of a scenario (neither am I!) and I have to say I was pretty worried how this was going to turn out. She has been known to pass out at tiny knee grazes in the past.
The last couple of days the wobbly tooth seemed to be annoying her a fair amount particularly when she was trying to eat so I was fearful that the next couple of days would result in a fair amount of upset. However, my big, brave girl came running into the kitchen this morning with her hands clamped over her mouth whilst smiling and nodding violently waiting for me to guess her big news. It was out and because she wasn’t looking in the mirror she didn’t see the tiny bit of blood there was. Thank goodness her first experience went so well. It will hopefully keep her calm when the next one starts to wobble!
