About one year ago, I took the photo on the left because Chase had the beginnings of a wiggly tooth and I knew I needed a really good picture of his perfect little kid smile. Today, he lost the last of his eight front teeth and boys does he look different. I love the age he’s at—he’s so smart and witty and fun to be around—but I do miss that sweet innocent smile. It’s not just his smile, he’s much different than he was a year ago, too. That’s good in so many ways, but also a little sad.
It’s a good thing I took the picture. :)
