Cole's 1st day

Cole started Pre-school this week. We went to his open house last week and it was so cute to see Noah take him in and show him around. He didn't miss a spot in the school. He even showed him both potties and said "and you don't even have to ask" to use them. On Tuesday, he had his backpack on all day and as we were driving to school, I kept hearing him say under his breath, "I am so sited to go to school". It makes it way easier to send him off when he is excited about it. I was really worried that he would be bored on the days that he doesn't have school, without Noah around, but he has been an angel and I have really enjoyed having him home by himself.

So big....

Emery started sitting up last week. I Can't believe she is already 5 months old . If only she would let me put her down to get stuff done. Now that will be a milestone. And that face....Ohhh how I love her!!!

Noah's first day of school.....














So Noah started kindergarten this week. I have had such mixed emotions about it but when it came down to it, he was soooo excited so it made me very excited also. On Wednesday (his first day) he came down at 7:00am with his kitar (guitar) shirt. He said "Mom, I picked out my clothes that I want to wear to school and I want to put them on and get my backpack and go wait for the bus." He is in afternoon school so I told him that he would be waiting for a very long time for the bus. When the bus came, I told him I would meet him at the school to show him where to go. He told me that I didn't need to go and he KNEW where his class was. So much for being my little boy anymore.



Wednesday was a big day for him. He went to school and that evening we went to get his stitches taken out of his chin. It was our first experience with stitches. The week before he and Cole were in the bath. I was putting Emery's p.j.'s on so of course I wasn't in there to see what actually happened. Noah started to cry and said that he fell. I went in and looked at his chin and knew we needed to go to instacare. He got 5 stitches under his chin. I felt so bad for him at instacare because he was really scared and nervous. He wasn't cooperating at all. So much so that the Dr. said she might have to send us to Primary's so he could be sedated. Finally, after much bribing, he settled down and was very brave. When we went to get them taken out, he was very aprehensive but as you can see from the picture, he did great.
