And so it begins...







It's a bittersweet moment when your littlest baby loses his first tooth.  A significant milestone on that path to growing up.  A giant step away from infancy and towards big kidness.  Sob.

Yesterday, that first wobbly tooth fell out, while Hugo was munching on our first loaf of bread baked in the new oven, not an insignificant event either.   In anticipation of a special visit from the magic folk,  last week I helped Hugo sew a little pillow with a pocket on the front   Before bed he carefully tucked his tooth in the pocket and placed the pillow next to his head.   In the darkness this morning, I was woken by a boy showing a me a coin in one hand and a gem in the other, with a look on his face so beautiful it made this growing up caper a little sweeter for one mama to bear.

  2. Beautiful. My oldest boy's first tooth is threatening to come loose as he races towards seven. It is bittersweet. But memorable that it embedded in your first loaf of bread!

  8. Way to go, Hugo! Yes, it's a milestone in our stint as parents when our kids lose their first baby tooth. That's a cute pillow you guys made. I'm sure the tooth fairy loves it.
