Sink Your Teeth Into

Zuki hasn't gone anywhere but I've been missing him. Actually, I miss his teeth. Nobody needed to tell me this would happen because I felt the same way when he started to walk, talk and crap on his own. My little baby's growing up. Thank God for iPhoto to keep my sentimentality in check.

Once the fabulous four front teeth fall out, this is what you get.

I'll admit it was fun listening to him have trouble saying words that start with "th" or "d". Donuts suddenly become "nonuts" and don't even get me started with food. I've settled down with that although, recently I bought his favorite: Granny Smith apples (yes, I'll totally take pictures of him attempting to eat one).

This morning, I noticed his adult bottom teeth were way past the half-way point. Just like that.

So I spent forty-minutes bawling over his baby pictures trying to remember what his old smile used to look like.

If I'm this bad over his baby teeth, can you imagine what I'll do when he starts to grow facial hair?

Maybe I should start looking for full time work - like at the liquor store.

  2. May I borrow the mustache? ;) How time flies. Great smile, with and without the four front teeth. It would be nice if somehow someday, I get to meet you and your family friend. ;)

  4. You think that's bad? That's nothing Momma. Wait til he's closing in on 13 and he starts sportin' hair. And it's not under his arms or above his lips. I will NOT be providing pictures.

    1. Ugh. I didn't even think of that - even though both my guys are exhibitionists. Come to think of it, their dad is, too.

  5. What a sweet post, Nami! I hadn't thought of that- Baby teeth are so perfect and cute- I will miss them, too! :) He looks adorable in all his pics, though- even the ones without teeth. :)
