You know the one that kept us up.
The one that made each of us cranky: You from the pain; Us from being bone tired trying to ease your pain.
The one we waited for. The one that signaled you were developing before our very eyes.
The one we celebrated with those melt in your mouth rice crackers.
Yes, that tooth. That first tooth, now lost, is still signaling to us that you are growing and developing right before our eyes.
But this time it is different. You are aware and excited for the possibilities ahead. You know that you are growing. You know that you are developing. You know that the void is a sign of hope...
