Toothless Wonder

Actually, my REALLY toothless wonder is four months old-- but we'll get to him in a minute!

Cheyenne has had an extremely loose tooth for about a week, and it finally came out in school today. She's now lacking both her front teeth. Evan has been worried that it's been about three months since she lost the other one, and it still hasn't grown in. Thanks to the wonders of Google, though, I now know that isn't totally crazy. Anyway, guess I'll be cutting her apples up for her for quite a while still.

How cool is it that she got to lose it in school, so she got fussed over at school AND at home?

When I was downloading these pictures, I remembered that I was the tooth fairy tonight! Evan has taken care of it with her other three teeth. I was kind of nervous on my inaugural foray , but it went off without a hitch. :-) And since she was at Aunt Sally's house last time and was spoiled, I had to spring $2!

Here's the truly toothless wonder. He grins like crazy now, but not for this picture, of course. He was very busy trying to grab his hands and examine them.

Rilla likes being in the picture.

She does smile, though, so she is helpful.

Then, she pops in from the other side.

Finally gave in my conscience about Lincoln not having any stimulating play, and set up this playmat. He loved it, especially this noisy little cow that was Elliott's when Elliott was a baby.

Rilla thinks the playmat is great-- and she also like getting in the picture. Notice a pattern here? One picture of Lincoln, followed by twelve pictures of LincolnMarilla.

Proud of her new boots. I promise you, I had already done this girl's hair several times today. I don't know if it's just coinciding with a rebellious hair stage, but her cold seems to have infected her hair. Actually, that's not too far off-- but the effect should be more like a hair gel keeping it in place! :-)

Close up of Rilla's new boots. The old ones were thoroughly worn out. Rilla is a confirmed rubber boots girl. I made sure these had handles on top-- I think half the allure is the ease she can pull them on. I bypassed the Hello, Kitty models, so Lincoln can wear these later.

Miss Grown-Up Girl after school today.

Cheyenne's new shoes. I took her shoe shopping Wednesday-- oh, my word. I can't even fathom how I will go shopping with her when she's a teenager. Every shoe was "ugly" or "ridiculous"-- except for the ones with heels or that were totally inappropriate for little girls. So our deal was that she would get these silvery ballet flats if she picked out a pair of boring, practical, go-with-lots-of-outfits brown shoes. She's quite entranced with these.

Almost done my week of being without Elliott and Evan. We will sure look forward to seeing them tomorrow! I'm not sure if Evan will be able to sleep a bit before he comes out here, I just hope they get home safely. Towing his massive trailer while sleepy seems like a bad combination!

Cuties :)

Don't worry. Silvery shoes will go with more than you initially think (at least I found mine too ~ lol!)

I am both looking forward to and not looking forward to shopping with two girls.
