The First Lost Tooth!

Derrick pulled Lucas's loose front tooth out last night. We were sitting on the couch for our pre-bedtime snuggles, and he was wiggling it. Before we knew it, it was out. Lucas was excited, and of course much tooth fairy talk was floating around last night. He went to the bathroom to check out the gap. It's so cute how they go from all gums, to that exciting time of cutting teeth, back to being gums and loosing teeth. He had a plan to set up a trap camera in the doorway to their bedroom to catch the tooth fairy in action. He had it all rigged up in his mind...set up the camera, hook a rope to it, and when she flies in, it will push the button and take her picture. Too funny! We put it in a ziploc bag, left her a "note" that his mommy wanted to keep it for scrapbooking/memory purposes, and off to bed they went. This morning, he came straight to our room to ask if we could go to the store today and buy a toy with the two dollars she left. We convinced him to start saving his tooth fairy money and soon enough he'll be able to buy a toy. Matthew was excited for him and proclaimed to my mom today that he was "Proud of Lucas for losing his tooth." Such a good big brother!
