Another First. And Last.

Cropping up without warning, somebody's first tooth poked out through tiny gums. No fanfare, no obvious discomfort, just a sharp little nub and some mixed feelings on the part of the parents.

The next couple of years will be filled with events like this, and since The Lovely Wife and I have all but inked a contract indicating that this little guy will always be our youngest kid, I can't help but be a little sad.

Of course, the alternative is to go through all those sleepless nights again with more kids.

I think I'll look back fondly on memories of this last first tooth. (And look forward to the first haircut!)
