1st Day of Preschool!!!!!

I'm not one of those moms who freaks out at each new milestone their child hits. I love-double-love watching Sawyer grow up & into an amazingly cool little person. I so enjoy seeing the world all new through her eyes. So please don't judge me that I didn't shed a tear when I ushered her into the public education system at the tender age of 3. I was freaking excited. For one, there's back to school clothes shopping. Hello. We both enjoyed that immensely. It doesn't hurt that Mrs. Cynthia at Cuddlebugs Preschool is a complete doll. There are only 8 kids total & one of them is Taylee, Sawyer's bestest friend.
The first day was exciting in more ways than one though. For some reason, (probably over-excitement) Sawyer came into our bed at about 4:30 am. She was snuggled all close to me & I realized that it was... um... a bit uncomfortable & tender to have her nestled in my bosoms all tight like that. That got me thinking at 4:30 am that I might be overdue for a visit from Aunt Flo. huh. Back to sleep. In the morning, once I had got her started in her bath, I did a little bathroom break of my own... and what do you know? We're pregnant! Please, please, please pray that this one sticks, because, like I said I don't think I can handle another miscarriage now that Charlie isn't here for me. I'm due at the beginning of May. I cannot think of a better time to have a baby. You're not fat during the summer, you don't have to worry about RSV, you've got a great motivation to lose the baby weight, you can actually get out of the house. Delightful! (and yes, Becky, by all accounts this baby was conceived in your bed. Sorry. Maybe we'll name it after one of you.)
Anyway, back to preschool.
Here is the outfit she picked out.
Next order of business.Then the obligatory first day of school photo-op.Dollar Tree backpack. (hey, I'm not paying $15 for an unnecessary preschool backpack for goodness sake.) Check out those calves. It pays to walk around on your tiptoes all day.With Taylee waiting to go home.
