It's been a while since I have updated on my girl!
She is getting so big, so fast!
A few days ago she ask me " How did that man build that hospital?" She constantly asks me how things work, and why things are the way they are (or aren't). She is certainly taking after her father with his engineer like skills.
Her favorite things to do these days are puzzles, taking extreme care of her babies, doing yoga with Mommy, painting, play dough and cooking.
We have been scorched in by the summer heat. So we have to get creative around here.
I had my first "proud, lets brag" Mommy moment. I was recently informed by Anisten's teacher and directors of the school that she will be moving in to the 3 year old preschool class. She has started transitioning over there, and the first week of September she will be a full time preschooler. ---Hold the phone. Did anyone catch that? My daughter will be in the preschool class!!!!!!!!
Her teachers are constantly raving about how much she talks and interacts with them. She told one of the teachers at lunch the other day " Miss Amy, this is disgusting" I haven't heard the end of it yet! Miss Amy went on about how well she talks and communicates with the teachers, and how it's even better than kids double her age. Miss Jordan who is/was her 2 year old class, The Honeybears, teacher says she has never seen any of her kids potty train as easily, and as early as Anisten. So I assume, that this all lines up with what most kids in the preschool class are doing.
It still makes me sad, that she is growing so fast! In that same breath, it makes me feel like all my efforts are paying off. Scott and I spend so much time doing things with her, and keeping her stimulated-instead of just plopping her in front of the TV. In fact, our TV is off a lot of time during the day. Just like we have "designated painting time" we have designated TV time. I attribute a lot of her imagination and creativity to this. Is it harder? You bet. Sometimes I'm so tired (especially now!) that I just want to let the tv baby sit her. But in 20 years I will wish for these times I spent on the floor with her playing and piecing together puzzles. Cleaning up paint messes, and crayon papers.
Anyways, I'm done bragging! :-) I am not trying to be all "Toddlers and Tiara" here, but we have all worked hard to get here!!!! So we have the right to be proud of our girl.
