Lost Tooth - Chicago Childrens Photographer

My baby came home from first grade on Friday with a big smile on her face, and a hole in her smile. She lost her third tooth, but this was the one that drastically changed her smile. It was the top one. She was so proud and so excited, and eagerly ran to my studio so I could take some photos of her new look.

I don't know if any other moms feel this way, but I was kind of thankful that she started losing her teeth on the later side. Not because it grossed me out, which surprisingly, it doesn't. But, because it's another milestone reached that means that my baby is growing up. Thankfully, her excitement and pride washed away any kind of sadness that I felt about her never looking the same again with those perfect little baby teeth. Seems like yesterday that I thought how huge it was when it cut it's way through her gums for the first time - changing her smile forever. Now, here we are. Time flies.

My baby is losing her's too early. She's only 5 1/2 and she's already lost two. She's not even in kindergarten yet! :(
