Since We're on the Topic

Carson lost his 6th tooth this weekend! As I said, he is a pro! :) However, this one was big. It happened to be his 2nd top front tooth. I just had to post a picture and give recognition to our toothless boy! It's a good thing someone told me once, not to worry too much about your child's smile during this phase of their lives. Had I not been given that advice I would have FREAKED OUT by now and been calling the dentist/orthodontist/whoever to get him immediate help!!! Instead, I just close my eyes and pray that all his teeth will come in just fine and he'll end up with a beautiful smile! :)

The Tooth Fairy Came

for my sweet little Avery's first lost tooth! Even though this excitement happened over a week ago, I couldn't miss sharing her good news. Luckily, her big brother (who is a pro at losing teeth) showed her the ropes. She was gifted with a nice shiny new gold $1 coin. Apparently the Tooth Fairy is handing them out these days.
I'm not sure why this loss took me so much by surprise. She is 5 afterall. But, I just couldn't believe we were at that point with her! Sometimes I wish I could hold my kids so tight that the days will slow down....

...and it was THIS big!!

Tom is grooming Carson up to be a fine fisherman! This past Saturday was the annual Kid Fish here in San Marcos. So, while the girls and I went down to San Antonio to get Cambria's 9 month pictures, Tom and Carson went fishing. And, boy, was it quite the trip. My little man caught 12 (count 'em), 12 Rainbow Trout! He (and Daddy) were so proud! And by the time the girls and I got home that afternoon, the fish were all cleaned up and ready to cook. We had a perfect dinner of fresh trout, thanks to our little fisherman!
