Sorry we're such slackers over here.   Had an amazing trip to NYC for a week (will try to get pics up soon) and then fell right back into crazy, typical life.  Been meaning to post for weeks, but...

We do have one noteworthy thing to post about. We hit a huge landmark on January 29th.  Simon lost his first tooth!  I was inordinately excited about Simon's wiggly tooth and couldn't figure out exactly why I was so invested, until Laura astutely remarked that this is one of the only developmental markers that doesn't involve some kind of skill.

The tooth-losing process doesn't really have benchmarks and standards, assessments or evaluations.  There's no real way to lose your teeth "wrong" or "off" or "slow" in the way you can with so many other developmental stages.  It's just pure, unadulterated growth.

Not the best pic, but you get the idea.  The tooth just next to his new gap is also wiggly, so we might have a bonafide snaggletooth soon!
