Last night we sat down to dinner, and we were about halfway through eating, when Ava spit something out of her mouth into her hand. She was eating a salad, and what she spit out was something tiny and white. I asked her what it was and she said she didn’t know.
Around the same time, she, Zach and I all realized that it was her tooth! It had fallen out while she was eating!!!! She is incredibly lucky she didn’t swallow it!!!!!
She was sooooooooooooooooooo excited. Then she picked up the tooth and somehow dropped it so a moment of panic set in. We knew she doesn’t like blood, so when her tooth first came loose, we warned her that it would bleed. She held a napkin to her mouth and wouldn’t move it. We thought maybe the tooth was stuck to the napkin and when I tried to take it from her mouth to check it, she flipped out a little.
She is growing so fast lately. These milestones are so bittersweet. I love seeing her excitement and watching her grow, but I just cannot believe how fast it has gone!!!! She’ll be graduating before I know it! ha! :)
