Mommy Amy the Brave!

Dayton and Ellie have a step Mother that they have always affectionately referred to as 'Mommy Amy'. Today Mommy Amy took Dayton to get his blood drawn. This was a task that I was not looking forward to myself. She didn't have to do it but she did and she toughed it out while four adults held him down. Ugh...

While the blood work was a necessary evil I wouldn't have faired well thus making it even harder on our little dude. She braved the heart breaking moments well and on top of it all she was able to masterfully pull his very first loose tooth out tonight! This is also something I would not have been able to accomplish! Here is a short clip that she and Spencer recorded of the big event!

Needless to say Dayton was super, super excited! He swelled with innocent pride and carefully tucked his tooth under his pillow before quickly drifting off to sleep!

On the B Side: We are all grateful for Mommy Amy! Not only is she brave but she is kind and loving. She nurtures the children in the most natural manner and cares for them as her own. She is a shining example of hope in a world riddled with unexpected circumstances and she removes the 'step' from 'step parent'. Thank you Amy for being you (and thanks for the cash you let me borrow tonight...mission accomplished!!)

The first toothe! I'm so excited for Dayton and his
half cry/triumphant victory over tooth got me choked up. So precious.
Mommy Amy IS a rock star and I'm also glad she makes Spencer and the kiddos so happy! XO to her!

That was the cutest squeaky little "It didn't hurt a BIT(squeak)!"

Loosing teeth is fun stuff!
