Farewell, Toothless Grins

Our other big news from the weekend? Mikayla now has her first tooth. We knew it was coming, as it's impending arrival has been very evident for about 3 weeks now. I was doing daily checks to see if that sharp little thing had cut through yet, but nothing was happening except for a lot of drool and chewing. Yesterday I fed her a bite of mashed potatoes and sure enough, that razor-sharp tooth scraped against my finger. It's a bitter sweet moment for sure. Mikayla is growing up and becoming such a big girl. But she's our baby and our last one at that. This new tooth means an end to all those sweet, toothless grins that I love so much. So here's her last gummy smile, just taken on Saturday.
