My Baby is 5!

My baby girl is 5 years old today! How can that be? I just came home from the hospital with her. I just heard Layton say, "myyyy babyyyyy, myyyy babyyyy!" I just saw Logan hold her and smile so sweetly at her.
I was just nursing her and dressing her up in such gorgeous baby clothes. She just sat there and didn't want to take a step.
Where did the time go between then and now? She is a little mother to Plampia and so fancy and loves to put little "touches" when decorating. She loves attention and craves a loving touch by all of us.
To my sweetest baby girl, Happy Birthday and I can't imagine loving you more. I am so looking forward to the next 5 years to see the young woman that you become.

Okay, this is my motto! Is this a good trait or a bad trait to have? I can't decide.

Pinterest and my Sister

Okay, we all love Pinterest so I'm not going to try to convince you of how wonderful it is! My favorite section to look in is the "sayings" or "humor". Here are a few that make me think about my sister.

Now isn't this the truth? This is actually factual. I was about 2 feet from her when she fell and broke her foot back in July. I didn't laugh (at least out loud) but yelled for her to get up. People were watching and running to help her. I knew she would hate this as much as falling!

Well if you know Allie at all you know how much she loves anything from the famous poet, Pooh!

Ain't that the truth?

Is that your opinion or mine? Sometimes I can't tell the difference.

Yes you will, and I'm kinda strong for a girl.

Well that's just a sweet sister quote.

Allie, I hope you know how much I love you and thank you for being a great sister and an even better Sis.

Is this sacrilegious?

I just saw Landry's Bible and noticed Woody peaking at me from it. Is this sacrilegious? Well it made me giggle either way.

Last First...

This is Landry's, I mean my last first day of preschool! I'm not trying to make this about me but this is the last time I will ever take a child of mine to the first day of preschool.


Some would find this a joyous occasion but not me. I love every stage of my kid's lives (so far) but this new stage means:

1. I don't have any more babies.

2. I am old!

3. I am one year closer to having my kids leave for college.

4. She is one year closer to not wearing hairbows.

Landry slept in sponge rollers last night. Looking at that precious little head asleep on her princess pillow in sponge rollers is the cutest thing ever! First day of school breakfast. She got to choose it. She chose a gourmet meal of strawberry toaster pastries.

All ready!

Usual front door pictureposing,
and more posing. If you know Landry you know this is not staged by me, it's just natural for this girl.
My sweetie girl is happy and that's what matters. I'm SO looking forward to getting her this afternoon. She will tell me everything about the day, even if we don't ask!

While at the pool today...

While at the pool today,
SIDEBAR: it's perfect for our little home schooled families because we were the only ones at the pool during the day!
We looked over to see the kids all hovered around looking in the bushes.

Ducks and second day

At the pool yesterday the ducks kept coming over and getting in the pool with us. It made us laugh so hard to swim with a duck!

First sponge rollers

Landry asked her daddy to buy her sponge rollers. I had been telling her about how is used to sleep on them when I was a little girl. We got them and she of course slept in them that very night. She was so excited.

Tissue paper window

I saw this idea on another blog. I decided that it would be great on our homeschool room window. It makes it pretty to look at and also keeps the bright sun out. It was fun!
