Firsts and Lasts

My baby girl lost her first tooth today.

I left for work and she looked one way and that is the last time I'll ever see her that way.

For some reason I feel terrible for not being there. It wasn't even wiggling.

The only thing that kept my tears in check when I found out was smiling at her excitement.

But as I write this, they are coming.

My big girl.

Precious, precious pictures. Yes, there will be lots of firsts and lasts with sweet baby girls. I married mine off this year and began another chapter in my life. Tears are good and healing. Hugs to you and your sweet one.

Kay, I thank you for your kind words. So much.

Oh, these milestones. They seem insignificant in some ways, but to a parent they are not. You're allowed a tear or two.

I can identify with that heart wrenching feeling.

I cried when I cut her locks the first time. And the first hour she spent away from me, (tho she came back quite happy.) :)

Mystic Rose, thanks for stopping by! There are so many heart wrenching moments aren't there? I'm already anxious about kindergarden starting in months.

She is utterly adorable. I loved those holes in the mouth, and wished the second teeth hadn't come in so soon with my kiddoes. I cried and cried when each of my kids went to kindergarten. I cried when I first went grocery shopping without them riding in the cart. I cried lots and lots of times, and still do. :<)

Thank you Nan, we are fast approaching kindergarden and I am trying hard to hold my feelings back!
