Evan lost his first tooth! I didn't notice it until he was reading to me, and I saw it was G O N E! I looked in the gum he had been chewing but it wasn't there. So, I have no idea where his tooth is. I didn't notice it was gone this morning when he brushed his teeth, but we were rushed and I didn't pay real close attention. Maybe he lost it during lunch at school. Whenever he lost it must have been during the night last night or early this morning because his mouth was not bleeding at all. I'm so excited for him that he lost his first tooth, but so sad I didn't get to see it. Oh well, I'm sure we are just starting and there will be plenty more to follow. I told him I didn't think the Tooth Fairy had a rule about the tooth actually being present. She'll stop by anyway!
I started this post yesterday. After dinner, we started looking for the tooth. I didn't think we would find it though because I had just vacuumed the entire house. Evan always likes to crawl into our bed in the mornings, so that's were we started looking first. We carefully unmade the bed, and WE FOUND IT! It was on the very edge of my mattress. Yeah!
I asked Derek to take Evan's picture to commemorate this big event, and this is what I got. Um, ok?! Couldn't they at least given me a smile or something?! Both of them were more concerned with wrestling with each other. Boys!
On another note, I have decided Ella Grace's 2nd birthday party theme will be kitty cats and puppy dogs because that is what she loves more than anything right now. If we see a dog or cat anywhere, she immediately exclaims, "Mama, dog! Awwww!" and makes a little pouty face. Last week we were at a red light and the lady beside us had her window down and her dog was hanging out of it. Ella Grace was just talking to it saying, "Hi, dog!" When the light turned green and the dog drove away, it was bad times. She was crying so hard calling, "Dooog." It was pitiful.
Derek mentioned getting her a dog for her birthday (we are not cat people), but I told him I really couldn't take care of one more thing right now, so she will have to settle for all kinds of decorations with pictures of cats and dogs. She will love it. I had already ordered this dress for her because I knew she would love it since it has the puppy on it. I just got it in the mail yesterday and it will be perfect for her to wear at her party. I showed it to her last night and she cried because she wanted to put it on right them. She spent the next ten minutes looking for it! I wanted to get it monogrammed, but Kelly's Kids has a cap of the number of letters and "Ella Grace" is over the limit, so Faith is going to make a hair bow for her with her monogram and some paw prints. It will be precious.
October is so busy. We are having dinner at our house Friday night to celebrate my mother-in-law's birthday. Then, there are three additional family birthdays through the rest of the month. We'll be busy!
