Finn's First Lost Tooth

On Tuesday, December 29th, 2015, Finn, at the age of 6 years and 3 months lost his first baby tooth.  The permanent tooth has already surfaced and taken up much of the blank space left by the baby tooth.  Unfortunately for Finn, that tooth is way, way to far back.  But that is a discussion for another day.

While at my OB appointment I received a phone call from Finn.  He was driving in the car with Grandad, Gigi, Sam, Cooper and Hank on the way to the aquarium when he noticed his tooth fell out.  I'm not sure exactly how he lost it.

The next day, Finn excitedly put his tooth under his pillow. 

He was so psyched!

Sam was pretty excited for Finn too!

 The next morning, Finn was overjoyed to find six dollars under his pillow. His two upper front teeth are loosening up too.


  1. Wow what a great post you have a beautiful family you are a very lucky person. We have a similar situation in our house currently. My wife and I have a son together and he is also going through the teething phase. He has lost 2 teeth already and has been really proud of them. The tooth fairy visit's frequently.

Finn and Sam give Will absolutely NO personal space whatsoever.  They are always in face yelling and grabbing on him.  For a few minutes he will tolerate it.

Then he gets mad and starts swinging those arms.  I have warned both boys that they deserve whatever Will dishes out. 

Last Thursday was Finn's field day.  He wasn't too excited about it because he didn't get to participate at all.  He was even more upset by the fact that he only came home with a "participants" ribbon.  I guess Finn expected to get a ribbon for "Best Score Keeper."

Mexico Beach

Today I embarked on my first ever “girls’ trip.”  I have always had friends that went with their other girl friends on beach vacations, but I have never been on one myself. 
The trip started at 6:30 a.m.  I kissed the boys goodbye (Finn woke up to make sure that he got a hug) and hopped in my newly cleaned van to head to Robyn’s house. I had originally intended to meet Samantha and Karen in Hendersonville, but I spent a little too much time with the boys and got behind.  Instead, we met at Robyn’s house a little after 7:00.
Once we all arrived, we packed up the van and set out for 109.  The van has really come in handy.  We were able to get all of our suitcases, bag, pillow, etc. packed neatly into the van with room to spare.

We officially hit the road at 7:30 – the destination – Mexico Beach Florida.  Samantha’s mom has a condo that she graciously let us rent at a ridiculously low price.  The crew consisted of Samantha, Robyn, Karen and myself.  Samantha sat up front with me; Robyn an…

Gatlinburg 2.0

In mid-June Finn and Sam accompanied Grandad and Gigi to Gatlinburg.  This is their second annual trip so will refer to it as Gatlinburg 2.0. Michael, Will and I were at home, so outside of some awesome pictures and few sweet phone calls, we don't have a great deal of knowledge about the trip. What I do know is that the trip started with hot Kristy Kremes.  Upon arriving in Gatlinburg, Finn asked if the "hot sign" was on.  Seeing that it was, they stopped in for donuts.

They also went back to Clingman's Dome.  They went last year, but I didn't pack long pants and jackets so they were pretty chilly.  It was also really foggy last year.  This year went as planned; the air was clear and the boys were warm.

One of my favorites!

Another favorite.

And . . . another favorite.

They went to Dollywood later than evening and then again the next day.

It amazes me how pop culture "savy" kids are at 5.  I was never that "in the loop."
