Birthday Week

Stella and I attended a birthday gathering to kick off Auntie Suzy's "Birthday Week". Well, since Suzy and Stella share a birthday, then Stella should have a birthday week too. Let the fun begin!

Independence Day babies!

Stella's first day of school!

From June, 2010

My baby started school today. What??? Though Mommy has anticipated this day for some time, it is still so crazy that she is old enough to go to school! She is attending a Summer program at the Montessori School that she will attend in the Fall.

The picture below illustrates how we left her. She immediately went into the classroom and got busy. I tried to kiss her good-bye and she shrugged me away. The report form the teacher was that she at some point realized that I was gone and asked for me with a worried expression. Kate (teacher) distracted her with a puzzle and she was fine. I checked out the remains in her lunchbox and she ate pretty well - some days she hardly eats and I don't know how she keeps her energy. Today was also her first time to sleep on a mat. I packed her blanket and pacifier just in case and she did ask for it. We hope to phase that out, but hey, it's her first day away from home.

I have to tell you that I really missed her. I have been waiting for this day for so long, but I found myself very anxious to pick her up. I just couldn't wait to see her. But, I also got so many things accomplished having the time to myself. :)
