I finally got it!!!

Well, I finally yanked out Sierra's tooth! I swear it was only holding on by one tiny little stubborn root.

Tonight, after teeth brushing, I grabbed it and pulled. Sierra, of course, said "Ow!" and pulled away. But I grabbed her head, grabbed the tooth, and yanked! And out it popped. She bled, of course. But she was fine with it. Rinsed her mouth and grabbed a tissue.

We had to run over to GG's house to show her. I think the running while grinning helped dry up the rest of the bleeding, because by the time we got down the driveway, it was fine.

So, the Tooth Fairy comes tonight. But Sierra is very sad to say goodbye to her first lost tooth. So, I'm to have a conversation with said Fairy and see if we can work out some kind of deal. You know, a something-for-nothing kind of deal. As in, you leave a quarter (although Sierra has only requested a penny), and we keep the tooth. We'll see how that goes...

Anyway, here are some pictures:

Here is the bloody hole, shortly after we pulled the tooth.

And here is the hole, after all the blood went away. You can see the big tooth right behind it. It should be up in it's place very soon.

I just can't believe that my baby (well, my VERY FIRST baby, anyway) has lost her first tooth. Damn! Now I feel old!

Oh yay! My best friend pulled out my first tooth... I think I was 6? The Tooth Fairy not only left me some moula, but my friend got some under her pillow that night, too, just for being the "puller." ;)

About the bluegrass... I'm pretty sure they haven't been quite THAT far north, although they have taken some long trips to get to festivals... I'll ask though. They sure love going to them, tho!
