Grant's Daddy here again.

Before I begin on the "Grant news", I would like start with some exciting “Claire news!!!”

Claire lost her 1st tooth today!!! To say she was excited is an understatement. This morning, at clinic, it became very clear that her tooth was coming out, and she wanted me to pull it out right then and there. Well, I chickened out. So, nurse Kelly came to my rescue.
