Jacob lost his LAST baby tooth last night 😦 Granted, that sucker held on FOREVER and it was a hard-won battle to get the sucker out, but it is gone.
I’m both happy and sad. I’ve loved every stage he’s gone thru (even the terrible two’s when I wanted to sell him to the “gypee sypees” – gypsies for those of you not in my family and hip to our lingo).
He’s now growing like a freakin weed. He’s nearly as tall as me (I’m somewhere between 5’5″ and 5’7″, depending on what doctor); wears a size 11 MENS shoe; his voice is changing (which I find HIGHLY amusing); and his physique is changing (I think the shoulders, arms and chest are due to nearly 6 months months of crutch use).
Goodbye childhood. On to “greener” pastures in “teen-hood” Greener because I think I’m gonna be sick… :-&
Who would have thought my little peanut of a baby (he was a preemie, people!) would grow so big and so fast???
