It seemed like it was never going to happen, but finally at 7½ Lucas lost his first tooth.
And that first lost tooth was quickly followed by his second.
Now, he has a significant gap in the front on the bottom and he talks a bit funny at times because of it, but it sure is cute.
He was motivated to lose his teeth for many reasons. I think he realized that he was getting pretty old compared to his friends for having all of his baby teeth. Many of his buddies have lost four teeth by now.
The permanent teeth also are starting to come up behind the ones that just fell out, too, and I told him that the baby teeth might have to get pulled by the dentist if they didn’t fall out soon enough on their own.
And, best of all, he wanted to tell everyone that “all I want for Christmas is my two front teeth.”
And now he can.
Merry Christmas everyone!
