Curse of the Second Born

Poor Second-Borns.  They never seem to be able to garner as much of the fanfare and gusto as their older sibling when accomplishing a major milestone, do they?

For no matter what it is, it still has the feel of "been there, done that".

Such is their lot in life.

So yeah, Middle lost a(nother) tooth this weekend.

Oh, the mommyblogging shame!  For I didn't even document the momentous loss of his very first tooth (and now honestly can't remember when it occurred.  A few weeks ago?)

Of course Eldest's tooth loss was documented in great detail on this blog.  First tooth, second tooth...
...and now, Toothless

So Mommy is sorry, Middle.  I'll help pay for the therapy, I promise. 

But honestly, Middle?  I think it went without much fanfare because you didn't CRY LIKE A BABY like your older brother did each time.  You were soooo brave and just laughed excitedly when Daddy pulled your first one and Momma pulled your second one.
Makes a nice straw hole!

After the oldest child does things, its like old news when the next kids do it. This happens all the time in my house.

Yep! Sad, but true. Mine is going to end up with the Jan Brady "Middle Child Syndrome." I think it's a combination of having been there, done that with the oldest, and of simply having too little time for much fanfare now that there are THREE boys.

Poor middles. They're always so sweet though. :)

So true. I have way more photos of my oldest vs my second. I have 6 older brothers and sisters so there are literally only about 5 pictures of me as a kid...
