Finally! That tooth gave up!

On Wednesday, Makenzie's months long endeavor of one of her front teeth hanging on for dear life has come to an end. :-) She lost her two bottom teeth last year, but this is one of the front teeth. The cutest when they are out! This tooth was STUBBORN. Makenzie wiggled & wiggled this tooth for MONTHS! We pulled & wiggled, too. She is a great sport about it & wanted us to try to pull it out, too...but it was really stuck by one stubborn thread for about a month. Nothing would give! And it was goofy looking! It would point out, back & every which way when she talked. You never knew which direction it was going to be in when she opened her mouth. :-) I was ready to take her to the dentist thinking it may just need to get pulled...but Tim said to wait. So, we did & the other day she said...her tooth is really, really loose. Looser than ever(in her exact words!). :-) She agreed to let me give it a few pulls & out it came on the first pull. Ta-da! She was so excited! And kept laughing about how silly that hole in her mouth felt. So funny. :-) Here's Makenzie's new smile!
