Toothless boy

Jacob has been a busy boy lately, busy losing teeth. He has lost seven total and has one more that is getting close. At his last dentist appointment, the dentist told us that after kids lose the first eight (top and bottom front four) they typically don't lose anymore until after they get their twelve year molars. Who knew?? Not me. Seriously with all the teeth! I'm telling you, teething never ends! Jacob talks about age twelve a lot...he remembers me saying it's when he will get his extra tooth pulled and his next round of vaccines. He's already dreading both, poor guy!

Look at that grin!
Recently when Jacob lost his sixth tooth he decided to write the tooth fairy a note and ask her what her name was.   Apparently "The Tooth Fairy" wasn't enough and he needed to know more. Some classmates had done this and were very proud of their tooth fairy names. Apparently our Tooth Fairy's name is Flossy and she wrote her name on the line he left for her on his note. :-)

He ended up losing his seventh tooth at school. He pulled it right out and of course he had blood all over the place, his desk, hands and his shirt. Ms. Lewis makes it special for them by letting them take home a baggie of books about the tooth fairy and a little tooth shaped pillow. So cute. They also get to make a trip to the nurse's office to get a little treasure chest to put the tooth in. He was so excited! 
Just when I thought his curiosity of the tooth fairy was gone, he decided that after losing his seventh tooth he needed to write another note and ask if her name was the same. Apparently some of his classmates have several different ones that visit??  Looks like the Webbs just have one because Flossy responded "It's me, Flossy!". :-) He seemed happy with that!

He also told me that some classmates also said if you leave a cup of water out for the tooth fairy, she will sprinkle her fairy dust into the water and the water will turn the color that she is??  Sooo, we left a cup of water and apparently Flossy is red. He was so so excited the next morning to see all of this. I'm wondering what he is going to ask when he loses that eighth tooth. I think Flossy is going to enjoy the break after this eighth tooth is gone and we have a nice break. :-)

Random picture update

I realized I had several random pictures to post from the past two months. So here goes...

Lunch with Jacob on his 100th day of first grade. 

Love the double shopping carts at Costco. And so do they!

Last weekend the boys asked to sleep together. This is how I found them when I checked on them before I went to bed. Sweetness!

Sarah playing kitchen with her little friend, Charlotte. 

Coloring fun in the office with Charlotte.

All in costume!
Sarah and Charlotte at story time at the library. Sarah cracked me up with her sunglasses on. Oh I love her!
Jacob's best buddy, JT over for a play date. 

When I looked back at Sarah in the car one day, I just had to giggle. Miss Hollywood with a tea cup in hand. 

She sipped on her pretend tea the entire ride. 

Sweet Luke coloring in his shark coloring book. This boy loves sharks and loves to color!
This could be me on any given day. I am SOOOO over dinner. The planning, shopping, preparing day after day is wearing me out. I would be happy with a sandwich or a bowl of cereal or even a simple salad. Oh if it were just that easy. And I think the thought of how many more years I have to cook dinner also wears me down. Feeding these boys will be no easy task when they are teenagers!

The newest addition

Kyla and Michael welcomed little Andrew Thomas Zajicek into the world on February 14, 2013. He weighed 8lbs 1oz and is perfectly healthy. He is such a sweet baby and loves to cuddle. Sarah and I made the drive to Houston the day after he was born. We spent a few days with them and Sarah and Joseph got to have lots of good play time. We are so excited to have another baby in the family and are so happy for Kyla, Michael and Joseph.

Baby meets mommy.

Baby meets Aunt Katherine. Just look at his sweet face. 

Love those cheeks!

Baby meets Sarah.

Loved those sweet baby cuddles!

Grandma had a fun time taking care of big brother Joseph while they were in the hospital. 


After nap time snuggles with Grandma.

Ready to go home!
Welcome home Zajicek family!
