Carter Gets a Visit from the Tooth Fairy

Carter lost his first baby tooth yesterday. It had been loose for about three weeks and we were wondering which would happen first:  Carter losing his tooth or baby Lauren’s arrival.  Lauren beat out the tooth by 10 days.  I can’t believe how long that tooth held on!

Carter’s tooth came out during snack time at camp. He was so excited when he came home and flashed me his smile.  He had his tooth wrapped up in a napkin and immediately ran upstairs to put it under his pillow.  He couldn’t wait for the Tooth Fairy to visit.


The Tooth Fairy did indeed visit, took the tooth, and left a $10 Target gift card in it’s place! The poor Tooth Fairy.  The price of teeth has far surpassed inflation in the last 30 years.  From what I hear, the first tooth is worth much more than subsequent teeth.

I can’t believe how much older Carter looks now with a gap in this teeth.  My little boy is really growing up.  *sniff sniff*

YAY CARTER!! It is SO FUNNY/neat that you are going through the same things as us - Avery's tooth beat our Lauren's arrival by 6 days. ;) I wonder if Carter's next tooth will quickly follow?!! Avery lost her second tooth on Easter so about a month after her first. And DANG, Carter got a more generous tooth fairy than Avery - she got $5 for each tooth! I won't tell Avery. :) Miss you guys, so, so much!
