Gummy to Gappy

The Last Gummy Smile

The Last Gummy Smile

Ahhhh, that gummy smile… I remember it all too well. That picture was indeed the last one we got, within days of the picture being taken his first tooth emerged! Before we knew it he had a mouth full of teeth and he was a grown lad telling me ‘Mummy, ive got a wobbly tooth!’ Β *Nooooooo*

Eight and a half weeks after that first wobble, he lost his first tooth. My baby really was growing up.

Id only just got my head round the fact that Wriggler had lost his first tooth and then another fell out only 2 weeks later! This was happening too quick!

It wasnt all bad though, his new sparkling teeth grew in their place and all was good again. It was like they’d never fallen out.

Fast forward 9 months… ‘Mummy ive got a wobbly tooth’ *Here we go again* ‘Mummy ive got two wobbly teeth’ *Gulp, what? at the same time? this could get expensive!*

Loosing the top teeth was probably worse than the bottom ones. They were on show, a constant reminder of the lack of control I had over him growing up. When those top teeth were loose we nick named him ‘tow mater’ because he’d got that look about him. His teeth were pointing all different directions.

… and then they were both gone 😦

My baby loosing his teeth hasn’t been all bad, I mean I got to play ‘Toothfairy’ πŸ™‚Β Creeping into his room in the middle of the night and sneaking that tooth out from under his pillow and leaving a gold coin in return covered in fairy dust. I remember the magic from when I was a little girl, doing it for Wriggler it’s all the more magical!

Wriggler loosing his first few teeth has been the end of one era and the start of a new one. He’s well and truly leaving his baby years behind him now and growing up. Whilst for me, I found these moments tearful and ever so slightly heart wrenching, they were truly #magicmoments to have shared with him.

      It didnt occur to me either until his friends started loosing their teeth. Its amazing how much their little faces change shape too while this is happening. Thankfully for now we dont have ANY wobbly ones at the moment. πŸ™‚

    Lovely! I love watching my kids’ mouths change and did a similar post a few weeks ago, but I have three kids who’ve lost about 30 teeth between them!

      Its a bitter sweet time isnt it. All mixture of emotions going off at the same time. Thankfully we each have a while before our 2nd ones go through this. That said, that’ll be gone in the blink of an eye too 😦
