Coming up on two years since Ethan lost his first tooth, the replacement is just now coming in. That's what happens when you knock them out - they don't come in until they would have naturally. I was looking forward to my son having a full mouth of teeth again (although the other top one is still missing, has been for 18 months) but last night at dinner he held out his hand with a tooth in it and grinned a bloody grin. Now it will be a contest to see if that top tooth can get all the way in before this new bottom one does.

Abby chipped her tooth about a month and a half ago - one of the front ones and they said that it would possibly turn dark grey or a deep yellow color and be like that until she loses it between 7-9 years old. I thought of you guys because I remember when Ethan knocked it out. I can't believe that his is coming in already!!! WOW! Time flies by! Her tooth has not turned colors yet - just a chip so far. :)
Ethan knocked his first one on the ground when he was about 3 1/2. It took about 2 months to turn gray. It got an abcess above it and he had to have a root canal. The dentist said that would save the tooth for 6-12 months. It got knocked out completely about 10 months later.
