My sweet Clara Rose lost her first tooth today! It's been dangling precariously for days now, but she wouldn't let me pull it for her. She thought she'd like me to pull it like I did with Ben's tooth, but she lost the nerve at the very end.

And then she came home today with exciting news - she'd lost her tooth on the bus to school (thank you, Lord, that she didn't lose it)! I have a sneaking suspicion that she wanted to lose it at school so she could get the special "tooth necklace" and sticker. The necklace "tooth" opens, and they put the tooth in there and tape it up.

Gums, gross. But just look at those pretty green eyes! Man, I love this little girl.

She was excited to tell me all about it :)

AND - my baby boy is walking! Walking, I say, walking!! He took some first steps before we left for our vacation, but I think walking has finally become his preferred method of travel. So cute!

(A much as I'd love to say that "no children were harmed during the making of this film", you'll be able to see for yourself that it's not true. He was mostly ticked off though...not even a bruise to show for it. Promise. Please don't call CPS on me.)

Times, they are a changin'. First steps? Never again (sniff).

Jacob still hasn't lost a tooth yet and he's pushin' 7!! Way to go Clara!

I'm sorry to tell you this but I had to laugh at Thomas walking. I remember all to well the days of the beginner walker. I can't count the bruises that we had on our 4 kids.

Congratulations on the milestones!
