At 5 1/2 Years Old

This sweet girl has just blossomed the past 6 months.  Mostly she's gotten taller!

*Ladybug loves school and is so excited about learning to read.

*She gets in trouble at school for talking too much!

*She wears us out at home, talking so much!

*Current favorites are Doc McStuffins and Jake & The Neverland Pirates.

*She wants a dog very badly…but we got her a fish tank instead.

*Still has the occasional tantrum when she doesn't get her way, but this has improved so much.

*Ladybug plays well with others…also much improved.

*Her drawing skills are crazy awesome and extremely imaginative.

*She weighs 36 pounds, 40" tall, size 9 shoe and size 4-5 clothing.

First Day of School

I can't believe this sweet girl is headed to her first day of Kindergarten.  She's so excited to be going back to school.  I'm excited for her to be going back to school.  We thrive being on a routine around here, so this is good for us.

Fun at the Carnival

This chiclet had seen the carnival from the road several days ago and all she could talk about was how she wanted to go ride the rides.  We surprised her and stopped by tonight and I'm pretty sure she tried every single ride they had!  She whined to stay longer but we know she was exhausted.  We barely pulled out of the parking lot and she was already fast asleep.

Four Eyes

When Ladybug went for her 5 year old checkup, she didn't do very well on the eye exam so we made her an appointment with the eye doctor. I'm so glad we did this before school started as she is definitely near sighted. Apparently, she'll be wearing glasses the rest of her life. The transition has gone quite well so far and she's been wearing them without complaints or problems. Although, there was that one day when I dropped her off at Nanny's in her pajamas and forgot the glasses. Gasp! I was in a lot of trouble over that one and won't make that mistake again.

She barely has the nose bridge to hold up glasses. Hehe. The pretty pink ones fit her the best!
