Big day in the Self house today. Dalton lost his first tooth. It kind of makes me sad. It's just another sign that my little boy is growing up before my eyes. His little tooth was practically able to be pushed horizontally so we knew it was time for it to come out. He was very nervous about us pulling it, and when I was finally able to pull it out, he seemed a bit shocked at first. I also think he was a bit surprised that there was blood coming from the hole in his mouth, although it was very little. I'm a little sad that he won't have those sweet little boy teeth anymore. Sigh.
3 To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the Lord has planted for his own glory.
