All I Want for Christmas...Wait, It's Mid-January Already?

Caleb lost his second front tooth this evening.

He got in the van after school with it rotated 90 degrees. It had to come out tonight.

Why does this have to be an hour long ordeal?  Oh, right.  I'm dealing with a 7 year old.  I forgot.

So, he bit the loose tooth at dinner and it bled.  He went to twist and pull in in front of the bathroom mirror.  20 minutes later, we still had made little progress and I wasn't allowed to touch the tooth.

He finished his dinner then tried in front of the mirror in the girls' room.  20 minutes later, he had it rotated a bit farther, but it was holding on strong.

He sat on my lap on the couch and tried for another 20 minutes, the air filled with the sounds of whining.
I finally convinced his to let me apply teething gel and give it a few tugs myself.  Three pulls and zero cries of pain later...and we have a little boy who needs TWO front teeth!

What a funny little face!

Bright-eyed and Bushy-tailed

A little fever this morning :-(

Budding Artist

Sarah has drawn her first rendition of our family!  
From left to right: Norah, Sarah, Mommy, Caleb, and Daddy is lying down at the top.

I'm so thankful that I thought to take a picture before it was erased.

Soups On

Just a normal day, but full of blessings nonetheless!

The kids are learning to eat more veggies...I added plenty of carrots, celery, and onions to tonight's Chicken Noodle Soup!
