Regan got braces this weekend. Well, sort of. It's actually more like a retainer. She has them on the top and bottom to help fix her bite and her top two teeth that stick out a bit. She is really excited about them. This was taken actually at the doctors office, so they were still very new to her. She looks much more relaxed and comfortable in them now.
We got a care package this week! Each of the kids got a little beanie baby. They were perfect for their personalities, too. Regan-giraffe, Benjamin-puppy, Katherine-bunny, Lauren-kitten
The other really exciting news....Benjamin FINALLY got his baby tooth out!! YEAH! It is literally the biggest baby tooth I have seen. No wonder it took forever to get it out. His adult tooth had already come in and he still could not get it out. Benjamin heard me ask Jonathan to remind me to make the appointment to have it pulled and it scared him to death...he had it out by bedtime! :) The tooth fairy did bring him money, but let him keep the tooth for show and tell the next day.
Benjamin was begging to wear a suit coat. We had forgotten that we actually brought one for him when we moved (it was huge at the time, but it fits perfectly now).
Regan's class at school has been raising money for a local charity that helps "unadoptable" kids get adopted. So her class went to the home and played with the babies, held them, and Regan and another girl sang a song for them. She had a really good time and wants to go back again.
I hope we can soon!
