8 years 2 months 8 days

Our second grader lost his first baby tooth.  It had been officially "wiggly" for one day.  He bit into an apple and his tooth lodged right into the fruit.  He was a little startled and then delighted.  Just the day before we were at the dentist for his regular cleaning.  The hygienist predicted that once the first tooth fell out, the rest would follow like dominoes.  
All of his pals at school and church have been losing teeth for years.  He finally joined the club.  He has been wanting his name to be on the tooth chart in his classroom since kindergarten.  It finally got there.
He couldn't be happier about it.

Wow, that is kind of late! Miller just lost his first tooth and he is 7!

I don't know if this is true, but I've heard the older they are when they lose teeth, the healthier their adult teeth will be?!??
He has the CUTEST face!

Hope the tooth fairy was good to him! He looks very happy, too.
