Turning over... Sitting Up, Standing, his first tooth, Walking... his first words... his first day at pre-school, his first day at school, his first concert, Kindergarten graduation.
Life is an accumulations of so many memories, so many feelings...
Alec woke up on his sixth birthday disappointed that he did not lose his first tooth. I guess he has seen some of his friends start to lose their baby teeth, and apparently an older and wiser friend at school told him he would lose his first baby teeth when he was six.
He has been anxiously waiting for this event to happen, and about two weeks ago, he showed his mummy and daddy that his front tooth was loose. We cautioned him not to play with it and that it would fall out when it was ready (to no avail).
Yesterday, while eating an apple at lunch, it finally happened,
Alec lost his first tooth. He was so happy, can you tell? He put his tooth under his pillow last night before he went to bed, and one can only wonder what he dreamed of...
And then this morning, he got up and ran into our bedroom telling us that the tooth fairy came and announcing that he was now "rich"! ...doing his version of the happy dance
Helen has taken Alec to Zellers where Alec is going to buy a Bakugan with his gift from the tooth fairy and with money from his piggy bank. This will be his first purchase with his own money, another milestone...
My son is growing up, leaving me both =) and ='(
