Emerson’s teeth journey

Tooth #1 – 5/26/2019

This one came out right before our Disney Trip. She was supposed to be napping but must have just been wiggling her tooth because she came running out of her room with tooth in hand. There was no nap this day 🙂

Tooth #2 – 10/3/2019

This one came out right before school. We were all excited to see it!

Tooth #3 – 4/14/20 

This one came out while she was brushing her teeth before bed.

Tooth #4 – 5/10/20 

E wiggled this one out. It had been dangling for a while. She watched herself in the mirror.

Tooth #5 – 7/20/20

This one came out during our trip to Soundwaves. We were in the hotel and the tooth fairy came to the hotel.

Tooth #6 – 8/30/20

This one Becky pulled out. It had been hanging around for a bit and nature wasn’t doing its thing. This is the first time she’s had two out at the same time (the gaps are filling in fast though!)


Tooth 7 – 9/9/2021

She lost this tooth at school! First time happening there! She was eating some Vanilla Wafers for a snack and out it came.

Tooth 8 – 10/6/2021

Emerson lost this one at dinner. We didn’t even know she had one that was this loose. And it was quite the day so I’m sure this was a great way to end it!



Tooth 9 – 7/14/2023

Emerson lost it after performance day at YAY Camp. It was hanging on at the end but a piece of popcorn did the trick 🙂


Tooth 10 – 9/7/2023

Lost at school. This one was a fast one to come out! Her teacher gave her a little pocket to put it in but we lost it in the car! Darnit!

Lincoln Williams – Teeth Journey

Tooth #1 – December 25th, 2022 (Christmas Day)

This tooth hung on FOREVER, helped by the fact that Lincoln eats mostly soft foods. The tooth behind it was growing in and just pushed it out. Becky went in to look at it and maybe pull it and it just fell out. He was pumped!


Tooth #2 – March 20th, 2023.

It was REALLY loose in the morning before school but it came out at lunch. He was super proud to show the case he got at school from his teacher (Ms. Kilgore)

New Sport – Basketball!

The kids started basketball for the first time this winter (indoor sports for the win). I misread the league information – or maybe it changed after we signed up?) but instead of being the older kids in their group, they are both the youngest.

Linc is in a 6-7 year old group and Emerson is in a 8-10. They are both such good teammates and such good champs for trying new stuff. I am coaching Emerson’s team out of necessity so I’m not sure who was nervous the first meeting – the players or me. It was a new site, new people, new sport.

Linc is playing on a team with his BFF, one of our family friends and a soccer teammate so his level of familiarity is strong. He works so hard at it and I’m so so so proud of his progress. He’s still a tad small for his size but he has found a way to get that ball into the basket. He’s made both a free throw and a basket so far – halftime is what’s called a free throw frenzy where the players shoot to add points to their total. PS. What a great idea. Some players may be afraid to shoot when getting guarded or just anxious in a game but just about anyone can shoot a free throw.


Walker Danger Williams (1 & 2)

I think I reached a Dad rite of passage today. Running to the pet store while the kids were in school to replace a fish. We had an incident with Walker 1 while cleaning his tank where he got injured (probably – fish can’t talk but his attitude changed greatly). So introducing Walker 2. Kids haven’t noticed yet -and hopefully they won’t.

PS. You’ve gotta love the name, right?

Walker #2


What a fantastic trip. The kids all found something they loved and we got to spend quality time together. Win, win, win, win, WIN!
