Like Mother Like Daughter

When I was little I was terrified of pulling my teeth out. When one got loose, I would let it hang there until it almost slid right off. My permanent teeth would grow under the loose teeth every time. I get the creeps just thinking about it. I can't blame the girls if they turn out to be the same way. Natalya's top front tooth has been loose for a long time. If she wanted to, she could probably pull it out today. But she won't. We'll see how long it hangs on.

You can see there's a gap there. That's because the tooth is so loose that it is now sitting a little crooked.

This is My Best Shot for today. Ain't she pretty? Tracy has more at Picture This.


And, I finished Halloween costumes today! What a load off. And sewing fur ain't fun. I just need to gather the accessories this week. Here is just a peek at one of them. You don't get to see the whole thing until I get a pic of the girls wearing them. Just think "Groovy Ghouls". And if anyone knows where I can buy striped tights, please let me know. It's too late to order them online.

Shes beauitful! I hated loose teeth too, I'd scream when my mom use to pull them out. If it were up to me I think I'd just wait til they came out on their own.

Julie said...

Yes, I too hated that. I forgot. Great job on the costume, I love the colors, and the colors in your photos.

she really is so gorgeous!! And I love the light and processing in that second photo. You rock, girl!!
My Dad had a thing for pulling out teeth...after the first time, I never let him know when I had a lose one. ;o)
Can't wait to see the completed costumes!!

Anna said...

So beautiful. And can't wait to see their costumes!

Stacy said...

She is just beautiful, you are right! Hmmm...maybe give her an apple, that would be a sure way to lose it. ;)

Oooh, I can't wait to see the whole costumes! I bet it was a pain to sew...velvet sucks, too. Hmmm, I wonder if Hanna Anderson has any tights, if they have a store near you. They have fun tights there.

Melissa said...

She is just beautiful!

I too hated losing teeth. I still have dreams that they all fall out...I think it's my worst fear. :)

megan said...

we have the same problem here, too. teeth hang on by threads until my husband insists on pulling them...it's not pretty. but i *love* the gap-toothed smile my older one has been sporting this year! can't wait to see a "space" in natalya's mouth!

Colleen said...

Such beautiful shots. She's gorgeous.

I just bought some striped tights at Target.

emily said...

The lighting is beautiful in your picture - as is the subject of course.

I can't wait to see the Halloween costumes - what a tease. ;)

Kellan said...

She is simply darling and so is the costume - way to go. See ya.

chaoticfamily said...

EWW - I'm getting the chills just thinking about her loose tooth. LOL. Excellent photos.

Can't wait to see the costumes they look very fun. I got some stripped tights for my girl at Wal Mart - but she is only 2 so may not have the same sizes and patterns, also The Children's Place.

Maya said...

I used to do the same thing!!! Love the pictures of her!

And everytime I see one of your creations I want to learn how to sew! Gotta find the time!

sarah jane rhee said...

She's beautiful, as always, and as are your photos! And I can't believe you made those costumes!

Stacie said...

How very cute she is!

Golightly said...

I agree with every one! She is simply gorgeous and the lighting in awesome in your favorite photo (it's my favorite, too.)
Lucky for me, I can't remember losing any of my teeth anymore!!

carrie said...

The light is a-a-amazing in the 2nd photo, and she is gorgeous in both of them. Great shots!

Mommy's Cherish said...

Girls are as cute as can be! I can't wait to see the Halloween costumes, I will keep a look out for the tights.

Arizaphale said...

Wow..that second shot is a taste of things to come isn't it? She is a STUNNER!!! And oooo you tease with the costumes :-D. HipGhouls no less! Can sympathise on the sewing fake fur thing....fluff everywhere....

Cari said...

Wow! Very nice shots! I love the first one. And can't wait to see the full costume. :)
