Jay starts Rec Basketball and Andy's broken tooth

Jay plays Basketball: Jay has been very excited to play basketball once he heard I signed him up for rec league. I pointed him out in the first picture so you know what to look for in the rest. They play on a little hoop and don't really dribble or pass, but Jay thinks it is great to "run so fast" from one end of the court to another. He also falls down a lot (it got better this week- less falling) which totally reminded me of my brother when he was little playing sports. The first game he scored 3 baskets, today he scored 1 and shot a bunch of 3 pointers, but didn't get them in. They don't keep score.
Jay is hidden behind other kids a lot of the videos, but they are still cute. Andy's tooth.

We were in between school and going to a hockey game on Friday night, and Jay was so excited. He picked up a hanger in my bedroom while I was changing and swung it (while still holding on to it) Andy started crying and I knew he hit him somewhere. After examining Andy and not finding any blood I looked in his mouth and found a little white fleck. I took it out and concluded it was tooth. When he stopped crying a few min. later and let me look in his mouth, I saw the chipped tooth. I haven't gone to a dentist or anything, but he isn't irritated and the tooth still looks normal (except with a chip).

This first picture is how it was on Wednesday:

And why I was taking a picture (teething!)

Here is his smile Friday after it happened:

And...just for fun...his first tree climbing experience:

I look over at the boys today and they dumped out the "toy box" all over the floor. That usually buys me at least 10 min. of computer time while they rifle through the toys and play with them. 30 seconds later I glanced over and saw this!!
They were both having a blast. I stopped to take some pictures before I broke it up:)

That is a lot of fun. Jay looks like a mini basketball player. Also, Andy's new half-tooth looks sharp.
Have a great day. Looking forward to seeing everyone in a few weeks.

So Nick and Matt had both fallen and hit their teeth.....and as they got older they turned yellow (Damaged root:) They called them their 'gold tooth'.....and just to let you know....the tooth fairy pays extra for those:) Never a dull moment with boys!!
