Five month photoshoot, with a special treat

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

We are a week shy of Ayla’s SIX month birthday and, indeed, just getting around to posting her five month photoshoot. However, good things come to those who wait and—for the first time ever—Ayla’s Photoshoot album features a SPECIAL GUEST! Cousin #charleymorgan (whose legal name may actually include the hashtag, as far as we can tell!) visited us from Seattle. We’re pleased to feature her in our Five Month Photoshoot, now in the Photo Gallery.

Thrilled to share pixels with special guest star, #charleymorgan!

Does the Tooth Fairy still visit, even if you swallow your tooth?

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

This question riddled the best minds at GFW all day afternoon Wednesday as Avi lost his first tooth, midday, while he was eating an apple (for the express purpose of facilitating the expulsion of his loose tooth). All we found was a spot of blood on the apple–the tooth was never seen again! (you can click on the pictures to get a bigger version)

After mommy assured Avi that no harm would come from accidentally swallowing his tooth (“it will just come out when you go to the bathroom”, mommy offered. “I sure hope it doesn’t come out of my penis!” Avi responded), the discussion began about whether the Tooth Fairy would still come. Avi decided to write the Tooth Fairy a letter (complete with illustration), explaining the predicament:

Avi’s note to the Tooth Fairy

Sure enough, it worked! The Tooth Fairy came! She wrote notes to BOTH Avi and Ezra (in tiny writing, because tooth fairies are tiny), grabbed something to drink, went to the bathroom before her long flight back, and sprinkled fairy dust in various places (including in the envelopes–she sort of made a mess). She also left Avi a toothbrush, some floss, and a $2 bill. Her notes:

We posted a video of Avi taking you on a tour of what he found, now in the Photo Gallery.

Congrats, Avi! One down, 19 to go!
