losin' it.


It is amazing that while years can change an appearance so little, simply losing a top tooth can change an appearance drastically! My little guy is going to be 7 (!!!!) in about a week, and with the loss of his first top tooth over the weekend he just seems so, well, big.

He has been changing a lot this winter. He is deep into his make believe stories and scenes, and is excited by tales of magic, wizards, knights and mythical creatures (they used to just scare him). His karate is moving along and he is now in a class with mostly bigger kids, which has charged his focus. He is reading super fast, drawing comics, and loves games of logic and strategy. He is building and programming his Mindstorms, amazing us all with how quickly he picks it all up. He has so many fun interests and we all love exploring them with him.

He is such a funny, warm, quirky, interesting kid - and while I can't believe that almost 7 years have now passed, I'm excited to see what the future brings. He is quite a force!

7 is magical! And the toothless grins are priceless. We have a fun tradition we do during birthday week. You can find the project on craftzine.com it's called an anticipation banner. Basically it's a way of looking back and looking ahead in the week leading up to a birthday. For 7 days asking what have I learned? What do I wish for in the coming year?

enjoy!

Seven is a great age! My son, Dylan, will be 11 this June. And, you're right, time is flying by!! So glad that we spend our days together soaking it all up!

How they grow up. My son is also 7, he's lost two lower teeth which he was so excited about.

Oh, how I love a gap-toothed grin! Seven sounds like it's going to be a great year!

So cute! My oldest (7) just lost his two front teeth this past month as well. I think his toothless smile is so adorable. :)
