This past week he finally learned to tie his shoes!!!!!! Wahoo!!!! He was supposed to learn while he was in kindergarten but being the bad mama that I am I never got around to teaching him how to do it. All of the sudden it hit me last week that they weren't going to tie his shoes for him in 1st grade so he had to learn. I sat down for what I thought was going to be a long grueling task of teaching him and I showed him twice and the little sucker did it! Reminded me of the first time he got on his bike and just started riding without training wheels like he'd been on there forever. One thing I have learned about Jacob is that he picks up on things very quickly!!! Smart little guy.
He also reminds me of an alien right now :) He finally has a loose tooth and he is soooooooo excited! He can't stop showing me how much looser his tooth is from the previous day. All of his friends had loose teeth last year and his never were. He had to have his top one pulled but he wanted the whole experience of losing his first tooth. So this bottom one is finally loose and he already has the adult one coming in behind it. I can't help it but when there are two teeth in there at the same time it reminds me of an alien or something - it's so weird looking. These pictures are weird but it was a hard angle and I had to document :)
I believe he's ready for the toothfairy. He might even let me pull it today - Yippee - or not so much. I'm not a big fan of that part of it. I'd rather it just fall out on its own rather than me have to pull it out.
