Ellie lost tooth number six at the beginning of last month.  I think this is where a parent starts loosing count. She still has 14 more to go. The first ones are significant, especially for Ellie since she had all four front and center teeth missing at the same time. It made for a darn cute first grade picture last fall. Missing all four teeth at the same time made it hard to eat sweet corn. That is something that Ellie is looking forward to this summer.

She has learned to cover her bases just in case Daddy is really the tooth fairy, by making her requests for payments to him. Since she is a Daddy’s girl, she usually gets what she wants.
