Can't wait for the Tooth Fairy

Gavin lost his first tooth today. He has been so excited ever since the Dentist said he would loose it in a few months after looking at his xrays- 4 months ago. Ever since then he has been fixated on when he would loose a tooth. Well, about two weeks ago, one became loose and every day he has us wiggle it to prove it is a little looser. Today we were eating lunch and it was wiggly....but not enough for me to pull it out. My parents came to meet us and when my Dad walked in Gavin said, "Pepa...feel my tooth it finally started to bleed today." So my dad put his hand in his mouth and instead of wiggling it, he just yanked it. Gavin was thrilled. He had the biggest smile on his face. He was so proud as blood was filling up in his mouth. It was kind of funny how ecstatic he was. I didn't have my camera with me but luckily for the good ol' iphone I was able to take a few pictures. All day he's been telling us he's extra tired and is going to go to bed early tonight. At dinner he asked if it was almost bed time. Let me remind you that this is the kid who begs to stay up late every night. Anyway, tonight he is excited, hoping the tooth fairy will come. We have his little tooth fairy pillow that his Grandma gave him when he was one. I remember getting the pillow and thinking, "It will be years before we'll ever use this." But here we are and that thought seems like yesterday. Tonight the tooth fairy will come and leave him something special. We told him for your first tooth sometimes she brings a toy and after that money. If I were a betting woman, I'd say the tooth fairy will arrive with a new DS game tonight. ;0)
