Daniel cut his first tooth on Saturday. I was feeding him his morning bottle when I noticed it. I screamed so loud with joy that I scared little man! He has a beautiful pearly white tooth on the front bottom right.
Then . . . pain for little man. He was hurting yesterday. That's the bad part of this thing. So awesome for him to be a big man, but it hurts!
I guess that's life, though. The things that have helped me grow, and maybe have marked points where I've grown up have hurt. God doesn't promise us a happy life, or a pain free life. He does promise that He will put us through fire to remove the things that He does not like from us. It's a hard thing to remember. It's a hard thing to live.
