Oh the joys of having a 6 year old :)

His teeth...
...keep falling out.
Or should I say I have to keep pulling them out? :)  If I remember correctly I wouldn't let my parents go near my teeth-I always pulled them myself.  I would imagine that has something to do with my dad literally thinking he was going to use pliers to get one of them out and also an episode of tying string from my tooth to a door to slam shut...
Kobe will NOT pull his teeth.  He doesn't want anyone to do it but me, I was SO hoping Ben would end up pulling this one because he would actually be able to get to it (Ben's fingers tend to be a little too big for these tiny little teeth) BUT, as luck would have it, Ben was taking the garbage out as Kobe ran in the kitchen with a mouth full of blood and a very dangly tooth after eating some pizza.  So I yanked it right away and cleaned him up.  
All just in time for his baptism of Sunday :)

vicki, i was worried that I would be weirded out by the "ugly duckling stage" but I have been happily surprised that he still is as cute as ever to me. I thought I might have to hind him in the closet for a few years, but I guess not! :) oh, and the tooth fair isn't going TOO broke. After the first $20 tooth he is lucky to get anything :)



Shelly, I am so not ready at all for monday, this birthday has really snuck up on me!!!!



Faith, it will be your turn very soon!!!

Too cute! I think the snaggle tooth look is quite becoming on your little man. Thanks so much for the words of encouragement. E is amazing. He has had some horrible things done to his little 6 month old body, but his spirit is fully in tact. He smiles and giggles constantly. Were loving every minute so far!

I think Kobe looks cute. Kobe seems proud of having his teeth gone. When I took a picture of him with his Bible he smiled so I could show Great great grandma Ghent his teeth were out.
