Well, we really celebrate it everyday so who cares? We ran out of daylight yesterday so today we planted our tree. It was actually a branch from the Gumbo Limbo tree that John planted in the front yard. It has been growing in a pot for a couple of years and now it finally has a permanent home in our back yard. Eric noticed that it was exactly as tall as he is. I hope it grows quickly enough for Eric to be able to climb. He really loves climbing trees and if he is anything like me, he will still enjoy it for many more years.
Yesterday Eric's tooth that has literally been hanging for weeks finally fell out. This is his first tooth for the tooth fairy so he was very excited. It really took a long time to come out in spite of many, many apples he has bitten into to try and "help it". The new tooth was already growing right behind it and is almost full size so he doesn't really look like he just lost a tooth! He was running outside playing while holding on to this tooth and I was worried he would lose it. I knew how upsetting this would be to him so I offered to hold it for him for safekeeping. The only problem is that within minutes I had LOST THE TOOTH! We looked all over for it but had no luck finding it. I got up early this morning and started the search again and found it. It was outside in the grass. Luckily it was in a small baggie or it would have been lost forever. Tonight Eric will put it under his pillow.
Just a little while ago Isaac had a baby molar fall out. At least the tooth fairy can take care of both with one trip!
I thought it would be a good idea to set up a family blog so I chose a name and much to my surprise it already was being used. I thought the name Wurm was unusual enough so I was curious to see who else was out there blogging as the Wurm family. Oops, I found it was me, from 2005. So much for keeping up with it. I had good intentions to continue been I didn't.... I'm hoping this time I will be able to keep it up. At least there will be pictures since our lives are always filled with those.
