7 in October, and finally lost a tooth
Well, today Joshua finally lost his first tooth. I didn't even know he had a loose tooth until yesterday--when I saw him smile and thought "boy, his bottom teeth are getting REALLY crooked." I felt the crooked one and it was REALLY loose. So today, while we were bowling, Joshua was extra grumpy. I went up for my turn to bowl, turned around and said, "Steve, check Joshua's tooth, I think it's bugging him." Then Steve said, "Joshua, can I see your loose tooth?" And low and behold, Joshua took him literally and pulled it right out, and gave it to Steve. And that was that. We officially have caught up to all of his other friends! He's really excited to show his teachers when he heads back to school. I must say, he's pretty proud of himself.
