Flashback Friday—A Terrible Loss

One year ago today.  Here are some never-before-seen (some graphic) photos.

Before & AfterlipThen & Nowteeth

A couple of weeks later.  The white on top is not teeth, of course, it is just his gums healing. teeth 2

…And today.  I asked him to show me his teeth.  He heard ‘cheeks’. teeth 3

Oh my goodness cutie Fred! I can only hope you aren't doing a similar post in a few years about his permanent teeth! Teeth aside, he has a smile that melts your heart.

I concur with all the other comments: Fred is cute!
How funny that you laid his teeth out on some blue paper for a post mortem, how CSI of you.

fred is so unbelievably adorable. he is so terribly tough.. we always comment when sid hurts himself and winges or cries that fred would not have even noticed that. He is made tough through his experiences..his pain tolerance is at a whole different level.. hehe. I miss him!!! i want to see him so much.. he is getting to be such a big boy..his smile is amazing.... to me he suits his missing teeth...
sid had to get his hips xrayed today because the doc is worried about a click (prob nothing) and he was so traumatized.. he was huffing and sniffling for 15 minutes after the fact. he needs to be around fred.

isn't it great kids are no worse for the wear- He wont even really care - well, maybe by the time he does he will start to have teeth again, like ella with her rash, she never minded, it was just me that worried about going in public with her! the smile smoothes it all over

He IS dang cute! I'm paranoid about Ava's teeth now. She's never done anything to hurt them, but I check everytime she gets hurt. :/

I SO remember that day (post)! It's like it happened to my child. I also can't believe it has been a year. A couple more and he'll have NEW teeth to replace the ones who took the hit. TELL HIM TO REALLY BE CAREFUL ONCE THOSE COME IN!!!!!
