We've hit another milestone in our house. Judah lost his first tooth!
I made him make that face because you couldn't see the hole without it. It's the bottom middle.
He hasn't stopped showing us the hole his bottom tooth left or telling us how excited he is to put it under his pillow.
I'm excited, too. But, it's also another bittersweet milestone. I've said it once, I've said it a million times, and I'll say it again- it really is bittersweet.
It's so much fun seeing my sweet six year old (and all the kids) grow, change, and learn new things, but why does the time have to go so fast when you become a parent? I'm really not ready for him to start driving, or move out, or get married. My heart breaks a little thinking of them not being completely dependent on me. Will I ever be able to let them go?
I told him as I was helping him get into bed that it makes me a little sad that he's getting so big so fast. And, he declared, "I LOVE getting big! I LOVE doing new things!" What an amazing boy I have!
I posted this on my facebook, but it was pretty funny, so I'll post it here, too. For the past few weeks Judah has been saying that he wants a "ballerina" for Christmas. We've never talked about ballerinas and he's never show any interest in them, so I was a little confused. I didn't say anything to him and didn't think a whole lot about it, because I assumed he'd change his mind before Christmas anyway.
Well, a few days ago when we were at Target he pointed out the "ballerina" he wanted. I looked over at read "Battle Arena" on the box. That made more sense.
I'm thankful for my firstborn. The joy of my heart.
