Cara's Back to School Fashion Show

I usually start my back to school shopping for Cara a the Nordstrom sale.  I was really surprised this year!  All I found for her at the sale this year was a winter coat.  I've started shopping other stores the last week or two and found some really cute stuff.
Cara is 46 3/8" tall and weighs 46 lbs.  She turned 7 the beginning of June.
This outfit is from Justice.  All size 7.  Black skater skirt, black cami, and a sequined tank.

This obviously isn't for back to school.  It's a black sequined swim suit from Old Navy, size 6/7.  Cute!

This sweatshirt is from Next Direct, size 7.  She already had the Gap red skimmer jeans.

Selfie shirt from Next Direct, size 7.

Funny story about this Old Navy dress (size 6/7).  Cara said, "It looks short."  I said, "It's a beachy dress."  She said, "Did you just call it a bitchy dress?"  Lol.

Shirt from Next Direct, size 7.

Cara has been wanting to wear scarves like her big sister.  I saw this outfit on a back to school thread.  Justice size 7 sweater.  She already had the pink cami.  She loves it!

Gymnast shirt, size 8.  They didn't have a 7.  It's going back and I'm going to keep looking for a 7.  It's just too big.

She loves this sequin sweatshirt from Justice.  It fits a little weird, though.  Short in the waist and long in the sleeves.

Last one is Gap, size small.  So cute!

If you make it this far, thanks for looking.  She has a Gap "Good as gold" shirt waiting for leopard sequined and black boots to come from zulily.  Then she should be set. :)

Cara lost her first tooth!

Cara is so excited and I'm sad!  She lost her first tooth tonight, which was exciting for her, but for me, its the last "first lost tooth" in the family. :(
This one has been wiggly for a while.  I kept telling her to leave it alone, because I didn't want her to grow up.  This weekend a couple of the cousins spent the night for a little slumber party and the tooth got REALLY wiggly with some encouragement from the cousins.
Tomorrow Cara is planning to go to the water park with one of her friends and she was worried that she might lose her tooth (and lose it for real) while she played in the water.  So she decided that tonight was the night.
She had me take a "before" shot:

Then she had me rub a little Orajel on her gums to numb it.  She laid her head on a pillow on my lap and I gave a little tug.  She bolted right up and said, "Did you almost get it?"  I said, "It's in my hand."  And showed her the tooth.

She got a Kleenex to stop the blood and then excitedly posed for the "after" pic.

She wants to write a note to the tooth fairy and ask if she can keep her first tooth, and she's expecting $5.00. :)
