All We Want for Eas-ther...

Can I just be a gushing Mama for a minute?

P lost his two front teeth last month in Guatemala. R joined the ranks of the proudly snaggle-toothed tonight. Call me crazy, but I have been waiting with bated breath for this to happen. I cannot adequately express (or explain) the giddiness this incites in me.
Everything about this photo (snapped on my hubby's phone right before bed tonight) makes me happy...except that K's two front teeth are merely loose and not yet out.

I see a whole lot of little-girl-front-teeth-wiggling in my future. (And a lot of the newly-invented game, "vampire tag.")

I adore my almost-eight year olds and their little snaggle tooth selves!

I was absolutely thrilled when my four lost their front teeth as well and was equally excited when a couple of those toothless grins were able to be captured by a professional portrait. There is just something about missing front teeth that perfectly captures the transformation from little to big kids, imho.
