My baby is growing up!

Bittersweet is all that comes to mind. Wednesday night my 5 year old pulled ( really I pulled) his first tooth. I do not know why my babies have to lose their teeth so early. Kayla lost her first tooth right before she turned 5. We even took her to the dentist because we thougth there was no way she should be loosing a tooth so fast. The dentist showed us her x-rays and said they were ready. She is now 8 and has pulled 9 theeth.

So now Brody has lost a tooth. He is so cute. But being "all boy", he has carried his tooth around all day. I was so afraid he was going to lose it so I asked him if we could make something to put it in! This is what we came up with:

I will admit that teeth, that are not in the persons mouth, is gross. This gives him a way to carry it around and not gross me out. I do plan on putting it up for good right along Kayla's first tooth. Right now he wants to show everyone.

How I made his tooth necklace. Well, a few weeks ago I was browsing Archiver's when I spotted these Memory Capsules.

They are incredible. There are so many things I want to use these for. I used scrap paper for the backing and glued (thank you Mod Podge Amy) the paper on to a Tim Holtz fragment. Then I inserted the fragment, tooth and capsule into the memory frame.

Then I took a charm and stamped a B for Brody on it. I plan on putting it on a chain for now so he can show all of his aunts, uncles and cousins. Cute but gross, I know.

Disney Family Fun Magazine

I have to be a proud mommy and boast about my baby! I was so super-excited to find the ad he shot for Dixie Products back in March in the Disney magazine I got in the mail. This is the only magazine I have seen him in so far. I am so proud of him. I spent about 2 hours under that table tickling him to get him to laugh.

Also, don't forget to set your DVR to Lifetime T.V. on Sunday June 13, when my Mr. Hollywood makes his premiere on Drop Dead Diva as lawyer Doug Resnick. He will be in 3 episodes this season (s0 far!). You can also check out a PSA (public service announcement) Mr. Hollywood did on lung cancer awareness. Did you know that 1 out 0f 17 women who do not smoke will be diagnosed with lung cancer.

Again, Mr. Hollywood playing a lawyer.


Stamped Charms

I really think it is a Southern "thing" to wear monograms. I remember as far back as elementary school wearing sweaters that were monogrammed. I even have a matching silver ring, bracelet, and pendant set my mother bought me with my initials engraved in it.

This weekend my SIL Jennifer found out that we had a Harbor Freight Tool store that was not even 20 min. from our house and that they sell metal stamps. We rushed over and I think we were drooling as we walked in and bought 2 size stamps.

We left there and of course went to Hobby Lobby, Joann's, and Michael's with coupons in hand and bought pendants to experiment with.

I bought a charm bracelet for my daughter and stamped a K on it.

I don't know if you can see it really well, but Kayla loved it. She refused to take it off last night. It made a momma happy.
