My babies are getting big!

My babies aren't babies anymore.  We no longer have diapers.  When I leave the house, I don't have to bring sippy cups or bibs.
And then a few weeks ago, my little girl tells me that her tooth is loose.  I don't believe her at first because she is way to young to be losing teeth.  It took her 10 months to even get one.  And I wasn't quite ready.  Even though she has been ready for over a year now since her big cousin started losing teeth and she found this cute little tooth fairy pillow.  So for these reasons I thought there is no way.  But I confirmed that not only was one loose.  But two.  And I cried.
A few weeks later while brushing her teeth I realized that it was barely hanging on.  After a whole let of drama, she allowed her daddy to help her pull it.  And she was so excited.  So excited that she had her Daddy pull the second one.  At the dinner table.  Only 3 days later.
I mentioned that I was in denial of this losing teeth business.  And that I wasn't quite ready.  Literally.  The tooth fairy had to leave a ten dollar bill because that was the smallest denomination that 4 adults had in the house.  We told Rhiannon that the tooth fairy brings more money for the first tooth.  We were more prepared for the second.

First picture of those sweet little teeth.

That night as Russ and I examined that tiny little tooth, we remember when she first got it.  It seemed like yesterday.  And while we we talking about how time goes by too fast, we realize that her younger brother got out of bed, used the potty, washed his hands, and then ran and jumped in bed with his sister so that SHE could finish reading him a story.

February 2010, Rhiannon meets Henry for the first time
I don't know where my babies have gone.  Because I still think they are this big.
