Swine flu and first lost tooth!

I know that is a weird title but that is what is happening in our house lately. I have to say that this flu really kicked our butts around here. I am soooooo not one for jumping at a vaccine but I have to say that this time I wish I could have gotten it. It's hard enough to take care of your kids when they get sick but then when the care giver gets it, forget it!! I was hit so hard by this and I am slowly trying to crawl my way back to health. I just can't get over how much energy it took from me. I am praying for a MUCH better week and looking forward to spending some time with family. Despite feeling so crappy and weak we have a lot to be thankful for and I have to keep that in mind!

Onto a happier note, Evan lost his first tooth. He was so brave and let me pull it right out. Then he asked where he was going to put it? Now to back up a few years, when Trevor lost his first tooth I was on bedrest. I wanted to make him a pillow to put it in because that was what my mom had done for me but I couldn't get to my sewing machine. I am sure I probably could have thrown something together but it wouldn't have looked very good! My step-mother surprised him with one that she made for him. I thought that was very sweet of her and much appreciated. So now for Evan I felt I had to make him his own. I found this cute tooth design somewhere a long time ago and had it in my head. This is what mine came out looking like.

He was very happy to see that the toothfairy had come over night and brought him his own gold coin. Oh and on a sappy mother's note, when I was holding Evan's tiny little tooth in my hand I turned around to see the picture from his 1st birthday party. There he was covered in cake with the biggest smile on his face and there was that little tooth that I was so proud of. Sniff sniff, it goes by WAY too fast!


  1. first tooth in was the first one out?? interesting!
    I am glad you are all on the mend, wishing we could have spent more time together this trip, but I'll get you around Christmas!!! :)

  2. It does mark the passage of time, hang on mama, it gets better even though you want to hold onto the way they were :) I'll get some snowflake pics up for you as soon as I can! Where's my camera...
