Sacred in the Ordinary - First Tooth

I am tempted to search for the extraordinary. I catch myself longing for the incredible. I fight the urge to notice the spectacular. In doing so, I risk missing the most extraordinary, incredible and spectacular of all... the sacred in the ordinary.

My Moment

My little guy turned 8 months today and two days ago he finally cut his first tooth. I was very excited as it has been something we have been waiting for for awhile (lots of miserable days). Something so simple, so painful and yet so profound. Another check in his chart; another moment to remember; and another step away from me.

We are given these gifts from God to prepare them for the world, but we just want to hold onto them and keep them little. Yet, they continue to grow and we continue to be amazed by their achievements no matter how large or little, like a first tooth.

Thank you for participating!

Our moments were very similar this week. Moments that remind us of how quickly these times really are moving.

Congrats to your little guy on his first tooth! A date to log for sure.

Sigh - I miss my babies being babies!

Sounds like what we just went through with Scout. I swear he was teething starting at 2 months with all his gnawing and fussyness and drooling. He got his first tooth Oct. 30, 2009- 8.5 months. Last week was horrific and I just saw he has tooth #2 popping out up top. My goodness. They need lots of loving at this time.

Ps...Have to tell you that I had the best laugh tonight at the comment you left on my post today about your hair dye experiment with your girlfriends. That's awesome!
