another tooth bites the dust

Lyd lost her second tooth this morning, almost three weeks after the first one came out.  It’s her front lower right tooth.  It had been mildly loose ever since its mate fell out, but in the last 24 hours it suddenly became super loose.  And then this morning, even before Lyd had her first bite of french toast, it came out!

Speaking of teeth, Curious J is working on cutting two molars on top on each side.  I don’t think they’re bothering her that much, however.  She’s already got all of her 8 front teeth, 4 on top and 4 on the bottom.

Is it a bad thing that Lyd’s first tooth is lost?  I mean, really lost — I have no idea where it is!  I put it in a baggie for her to take to school on the day it came out, and I haven’t seen it since.  Actually, it’s okay.  I’ve decided that I’m not going to be one of those moms who keeps all her kids’ teeth forever and ever.  I’ve thought about doing it, and I think that — it’s gross.

However, I do have a lock of Lyd’s hair in a baggie from the first time I cut her bangs back when she was two years old.  I like having that.  🙂
