Helen playing a few weeks ago. Her smile looks completely different now.

This is an image of Helen, my eldest daughter, flashing a marvellous smile while messing around at a play park. I took it a few weeks ago when I first got my new camera and wasn’t too sure what to make of it until I flipped it to black and white.

When I told Helen I was going to take a picture, she insisted on striking a pose and maneuvered the digger’s bucket into this position. She was having great fun and when the time came to move on, she didn’t want to leave the park. The promise of hot chocolate, however, did eventually entice her away!

In the picture Helen still has all the teeth in the top row of her mouth. Shortly afterwards she lost two of them and so the smile is quite significant. It was one of the last pictures taken before her adult incisors started coming through.

  1. That’s lovely to have captured that smile for the last time. It’s amazing how different they look when their two top teeth are gone! My younger son knocked his out, so was without them for over two years. I love to see the way their smiles keep changing when they lose those first few teeth.

    Beautiful shot and I agree this is a very significant moment. My son has lost 1 front tooth and the other is almost out. I love his cute gappy smile now but wonder what he will look like with his new adult teeth too. Our little ones are growing up! #photalife

    1. They grow up with terrifying speed! Helen’s lost the four teeth now, all in the space of about a month. Never thought it would happen at this speed.

    1. Oh yes, the adult teeth have started growing already. I have to keep lecturing her about going down slides head first because of the risk she knocks out an adult tooth.

    1. I tell you Darren, e have one or two pics of Helen in which she would be in her twenties. Frightening how they grow up so quick!

    1. Ha ha! Wait until the teeth are so loose they can turn 180 degrees in the mouth. It looks….interesting to say the least!

    1. It’s a pound a go….although Helen came homw fom School yesterday and informed me one of her friends gets two pounds. That was awkward to explain.
