Tooth Number...4

The other day while eating a snack Leilani let out a blood curdling scream. I turned around and saw her with a mouth full of blood and she was crying: I don't want it to come out!

To be honest, I chuckled a bit. See, Leilani has had a loose tooth for sometime now. Then I had to remind her that this was going to be tooth number 4 which meant that we have already been through this three times.
Needless to say she didn't find comfort in these words and kept crying.

Finally, after several minutes she finally calmed down. I sat her on the toilet got some saline, a clean napkin and went to work. She was still crying and telling me no but unlike the first time this time went a lot smoother. In between the tears and trying to say no, while I had my had in her mouth, I slipped the tooth out no problem!

This tooth makes number 4!!! I must say that it gets relatively easier but still a bitter sweet reminder that my baby girl is growing up so FAST!
