Exciting Day

Sorry for the lack of updates, but we have been busy lately. Nicholas has had a loose tooth, his first, since November. Finally, over the past week, it has been loose enough to come out. Actually, he has been nagging his Daddy to pull it for over 2 weeks, but today Bryant decided it was loose enough to pull without causing any drama. For those of you familiar with Nicholas, you know that this is no small chore. We deal with major hysteria over a small splinter. I was having a hard time believing that he would actually allow his Daddy to pull a tooth. I figured it would go something like this "Daddy, I want this tooth to come out, but I don't want you to touch it or me or get within 3 feet of it or even look at it or I will totally freak and run around the house screaming that you are going to kill me and that I will never forgive you for this". But that is not how it went at all. We were at the restaurant after closing and Nicholas was once again nagging for him to pull it, so he sat down with him, worked on it for about 3 minutes and out it came. No drama, no tears, not even an "I am mad at the both of you" like we got the last time he had a splinter and we tried to get it out. Just a tiny bit of blood and it didn't phase him. Again, unusual because the last time he had a nose bleed, he screamed bloody (no pun intended) murder for a full 10 minutes after it stopped.

So my big boy is getting bigger and while I will miss those perfect little baby teeth, I couldn't be happier for him. Congrats sweet Nicholas, Mommy and Daddy are as proud as you are. Love you to the moon and back and back again.
