Sydney's new do

Sydney starts preschool on Monday! Real live actual preschool through the Litchfield School District. My mom got a job as a school nurse there and because of that Sydney got a spot even though it is not the district we live in. It is all day 5 days a week (yes a little tear for mom, don't know if I am ready for this). I think she is ready, I am a little concerned about it being 5 days a week, so I will see how she does. So in preperation for school I took Sydney to the salon where I get my hair cut and paid way to much for a kid cut. It was worth the extra $20 for my piece of mind though. I haven't had her hair cut in over a year because I was scared it was going to get screwed up (bad experience in the past). I love her beautiful red curls! After her hair cut Kristi and Carter met us at the mall for some serious spending. I did get everything I bought on sale (huge going out of business sale at Pumpkin Patch that I hit up today as well, can you say ouch!) Anyway here are pictures of my girl and her new do.

Out of the mouths of babe's - part 2

So I got out of the shower today and Sydney said " momma, your bum is getting bigger too!" in a tone of voice that meant it was something to be excited about. Well I was not so excited to hear that, but it was pretty funny. Oh, the honesty of a child. I just had to share.

My Fashion Girl

I have been so bad about blogging! Sorry. I will try to be better. So the last post left off with the less than excited response to Sydney becoming a big sister. Well the very next day I think it sunk in. She is so excited about baby sister (she's ok if she turns into a baby brother too) She talks to the baby all of the time, hugs and kisses my belly. Even when I am at work and call her she talks to baby sister. I am so happy she is so excited. Though the reality of an actual baby will be interesting to watch. She loves kids and babies so I think she will adjust pretty well.
We went to a couple of daycare centers yesterday to try to find preschool for her. There are pretty slim pickings in that area around here so we have no choice but go the daycare route. Sydney was so exciting (her words) about preschool and can't wait to start. One of the schools we toured had all the kids in a classroom and Sydney just joined right in. She sat down at the table like she belonged. When I told her it was time to go she was so sad that she started crying. She didn't want to leave! I think she is past ready for preschool and will do wonderful in that environment. Anyway here are some recent pictures of her!

Pirate day and birthday party at summer camp.

Tea time at Jake's birthday party.

So Sydney had decided that she is a "fashion girl". Those are her words. She is still obsessed with dressing up and wearing her high heals all day long. This little jewel she picked out for us last night. Those are my socks from back when toe socks were cool.
