Braden lost his third tooth!

I have been asked by a fellow pregster (Nessa!) to increase my blog posts so as to give some meaning to her mornings...hehehe. I don't know how long this will last, but I'm going to attempt it. Barring anymore attitudes towards getting on the computer and as long as my hips will hold out while I sit that long, I may actually be able to pull it off...for a bit.... Yeah.... Okay! Onward!

Last night around 10:30 Braden was at it again with his third loose tooth. He wanted me to be on hand to pull it if need be, so he got it to the point that it was bleeding a bit and then turned it over to me. I must say that I'm starting to get the hang of it. Since I pulled his second tooth and that went well, I hoped this one would, too. I looked at it before I got a hold of it and saw that his permanent tooth was already through the gum and slightly behind the loose one. (That was kinda weird to see.) I got a tissue, grabbed hold and gently, but firmly pulled up. That tearing sound is still not pleasant, but a mom's gotta do what a mom's gotta do! So, I did.

Here are some pics of Braden in all his toothless wonder. The first permanent tooth is almost all the way in now:
