Nicole finally has some loose teeth. I realize each kid is an
individual, but Rachel was missing 4 teeth by the time she started
kindergarten at age 5 years and 9 months. Nicole is halfway through
kindergarten at age 5 years 11 months. Last weekend one of her bottom,
middle teeth began to wiggle. Yesterday, she noticed both bottom
middle teeth are slightly wiggly. Yeah!


Nicole was invited to her first birthday party sans Rachel. It was HER
friend, not a mutual friend. This seems like a big deal to us, because
Rachel has several friends she's known since birth and once Nicole was
born she has kind of been invited along. She hasn't had the same kind
of group cuz we don't have friends with girls her age. So, it has
taken 5 years for her to aquire some friends of her own. We were
curious to see how she would do in an autnomous situation without her
big sister. She did fine of course.
