Big Changes for Aaron

Above is Aaron before glasses, and below...with his new glasses. He is so thrilled. Especially because they change to sunglasses outside.  SO DARN CUTE!!

One last look at Aaron's childhood smile.

While Aaron was so excited to have his tooth extracted, mom was mourning the loss of his childhood smile!! (Aaron hit his tooth one year ago, and while the bruised root recovered, apparently he recently reinjured it. He developed an abcess, noticed at his cleaning and his wonderful dentist pulled it out.)

5 minutes after getting home. A tooth chest for his tooth and a mouth full of gauze.

And...TA DA...Aaron's new smile. (This was taken 10 minutes after getting home.) This is going to be a  smile we see for quite a few years, as his permanent tooth is not going to be arriving anytime soon!

Aaron was thrilled to find that the Tooth Fairy left $5 in his purple velvet tooth bag. (We heard the "going rate" for a child's first tooth is often equal to how old they are. We plan on silver dollars for the subsequent teeth.) Aaron proudly deposited his money in his bank account, after telling the bank tellers all about losing his tooth and the visit form the Tooth Fairy.

And now, Aaron joins the "lost a tooth club."

Storyland June 2012

This past weekend (June 9 and 10) we went to Glen, NH to Storyland, for our first time. We had a blast! The boys LOVED the ride Bamboo Chutes (log ride) and we must have ridden it over 30 times. Sunday the park was not crowded at all and we just had the best time.
