Missing Tooth

Mason has had some problems with his front two teeth. We took the bottle away when he turned one, but then we started letting him go to bed with apple juice in a sippy cup, BIG MISTAKE! The other day he was complaining about his tooth hurting and I noticed it was loose and his gum above it didn't look so good. I took him to the dentist and they put him on antibiotics and said to try and wiggle it out, well we couldn't get it out and the infection looked worse, so Ryan took him in this morning and he came home like this:

Well several dollars later and some laughing gas, no tooth! Apparently the new tooth won't grow in for FOUR YEARS! Oh well,a year or so ago this would have been a big deal, but when your other child has gone through what Teagan has gone through, this is just a walk in the park!

I always think that toothless kids are really cute. He just gets to be that much cuter for that much longer!

It looks great!! The ladies will just think he is older then he really is. You're right, it could have been worse.

Oh, please. All the other kids will be jealous! It is cool to get rid of your baby teeth.

Also, Mason already looks like he's 6, the missing tooth will just seal the deal. Ha!
