A Difficult Day

I'm feeling all out-of-sorts today. Anna kept us up most of the night fussing, so Tony and I were pretty tired today. She had a sad accident yesterday in which she fell down and hit her mouth and knocked one of her front two teeth loose. We took her to the dentist, but there isn't anything he can do. We'll have to wait and watch to see if it will re-attach or come out completely. I'm really sad at the thought of her losing her tooth.

Here is her beautiful smile before:


and after:




Tomorrow is Ellie's birthday and I have grocery shopping and baking to do which I haven't had time to do because the baby chicks came unexpectedly one day early!



They are so amazingly cute I'll have to post a video of their cheeping when I get a chance. So far we have nicknames for them based on their markings, and we plan to watch them and discern their personalities a bit before naming them.

We will be praying for Anna's tooth and hope that it reattaches!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ELLIE!!!

Ken, Chris, Garett, and Alden

P.S. Also, we vote for the flower names for the chicks. Keep us posted on this endeavor!

Abby and Gilbert both knocked teeth loose and they reattached, but were grey and bruised. Trixie broke her two front teeth off and got crowns.

I was so surprised that she knocked the tooth loose, she just slipped and fell in the hallway.
Did the grey teeth stay in? The dentist told us if it greys up it might be infected and have to come out anyway.

The tooth looks pretty crooked and I'm afraid to push on it to test if it's still loose, I'm thinking the odds are pretty slim that she's going to keep it.
