we have a preschooler!


**sweep sweep sweep**

Oh HI!!! Just dusting off the ole' blog here. It will be fun to see if anyone is still checking in! If so, hello! :-)

I think you all know me well enough to know that I don't do pictures on the first day of school as I prefer not to toy with my sanity. Livia went to school for 2 days, came down with an 8-day cold and finally made it back to school yesterday. She had been doing a preschool countdown since 50-some odd days, and I didn't even get a goodbye when I dropped her off on the first day. Here are a few snaps from her third day of preschool. And in the interest of full disclosure, these were taken in the evening as we don't have time to dilly dally taking pictures at 8:00 in the morning. Screeching into the parking lot at the last second is more like it.






















No room for the 'a' apparently. (a-L-i-v-i) ;-)









Jet pack??



Thanks so much for looking & have a wonderful weekend! xo

Well, you know I'm still watching your blog. (I hope that isn't creepy and stalker-like. lol) Love these pictures and love her dress. So cute!

Brooke said...

A-DOR-ABLE!!!! Love the outfit... those socks are killing me!!! The jumping shot - OMG! Those curls.... geez. I can't believe she is in preschool now ;D I hope she is loving it!

Amarie said...

Hey there, stranger! You are in my Reader, so I will never miss you. :)

I must say she is getting so tall, and is as cute as ever! I agree with you on the snapping photos in the morning business. I was lucky enough, for pre-k and now kindergarten, to snap a photo with my camera phone lol.

I have a new blog design, name, and url, so you may not recognize me. But it's still me!

She's so pretty, and her hair is getting long! I always love your commentary :)

Amy Johnson said...

My, she is getting so big! I love her dress! I think your photos are great -- rushed, or planned. :D

Great to see the blog "dusted off". I was just about to email you and see if you were still alive! hehe

Kristal said...

Where did you find that adorable outfit???

I don't do first day of school pictures... just fall ones. I could never remember that {or maybe it is the stress of I'm the teacher who has time for a picture??}.

She is adorable!

Jenn said...

She is just too cute!!! I love her curls and I really, really love the socks. Precious!!! And I am assuming she is in a private school that teaches Abeka because I've done that giraffe paper four times now in my homeschooling years. Ha!

Sarah Halstead said...

Oh my gosh!!! I love these!!! Amazing. The jumping one is the best. Of course I am still checking in. :)

Liza said...

Oh my stinkin' cuteness...I can die over those socks!!!

Jess said...

Oh, my Clara would be soooo jealous! We can't start preschool until she's four. And yes, Hello Kitty all.the.way. :)

Tiffany said...

She looks so grown and her hair is gorgeous! I can't believe shes already in Pre-k! Addy won't go until next year probably. The pictures are great and so is that outfit :-)!

Pieni Lintu said...

She looks so cute! Love her outfit and look at that hair, so so pretty! I wish I had a girl too - don't get me wrong, I love my two sons so very much. ;)

Happy third day baby girl : )
I love that she was counting as early as fifty some days before hand. Aren't kids great?

Frida said...

Oh to leave the first-born child to pre-school was the hardest thing I have done :-) She is so cute!

Mindy McGrew said...

She is such a doll! Good to "see you" back in action <3

stacey said...

What? An actual BLOG POST? With PHOTOS? Wow. With the exception of a comment or two on my blog I thought you might have fallen off of the edge of the earth. So happy to see you are still alive over there on the East Coast. ;-)

These are adorable. Of-course, I wouldn't have expected anything different. :) Adore the jet pack one.

I don't think your preschooler could get any more beautiful. Her outfit is just the most adorable little thing. Love this series, especially the jumping shot with that most awesome Hello Kitty backback.

alicia said...

Great pics! Love the jumping one. Trust me, I get it. I did pics the day before school started, ha. My daughter's bus comes at 6:05 AM. It's still dark then. ;) Hope your blogging means that things are settling down with your house stuff.

Skye said...

Welcome back my friend! I love these pictures of Livia! So great and they all capture her personality so much. She seems so happy to be going to school for sure! I love her first day outfit and her hair!! I can't wait (or maybe I can!!) for Julianna going to school. It's exciting!

How is this possible????? It seems like just yesterday when I first happened upon this beautiful spot in bloggy land & she was still in the crib. Love these Karli!!!!
