We bought a new camera charger so we can take pictures once again. We were certain we would find the first charger just after the new one came in the mail (via Murphy’s law) but it does still remain missing.

Anyhow, the pictures from the Monster truck jam would not have been possible without the new camera charger. So hurray for the internet!

Now you may say, well why aren’t there more pictures of the house and the family other than just at the monster jam? Well, I guess it boils down to me being too lazy to clean up my house enough to take pictures. You see, I am ok if you stop by and see the bit of mess that is here, but to document it on the Internet for the whole world to see forever after is too much for me. Not gonna do it. Nope.

And some rather anticipated news to add to this blog post… As a baby, 6 teeth came in rapid succession and tortured us with tears and discomfort. As a 5 year old, 6 teeth fell out in rapid succession also and have provided a different source or agony- an embarassing lack of certain mastication skills. Micah has been a toothless wonder for 6 months or more. It has gotten to the point where he gets mad if I give him an apple because he can’t eat it without front teeth. I have to cut everything for him now. How does he even do pizza? It is a miracle that he can bite into anything at all! He is an example of superb adaptation. So the excitement is that his front two teeth on top have finally started to pop out- wahoo! We keep marveling at the new teeth and are so glad he will soon be able to eat apples once again. I’ll post a picture soon! His cute toothless grin is about to be a thing of the past!

Oh, poor kid!! That must be SO hard! I'm glad his problems appear to be almost over, though. I can't believe he lost so many so quick. I think he's only 5 months older than Ethan, but Ethan has yet to have a LOOSE tooth!! Good luck, Micah!
