Itty Bitty

So, Allison had her 12 month well child check today.  She's 28 1/2 inches long, which puts her at the 50th percentile (or right at average), but she's only 17lbs8oz, which is at the 5th percentile.  Dr. M. isn't concerned at all, since she's active and social and exactly where she should be at developmentally.  I'm just not USED to a small child!

And some adorableness...

We had some friends get together today to celebrate Allison's birthday on Monday.  It was fun!

Allison loved her cupcake
She wasn't too thrilled with the idea of opening presents though
She played for a bit
And then she totally crashed and is completely passed out right now.  Here's hoping for a good nap!

First day of school!

Erin has been SO excited.  I swear she's been talking about going to school for the last year.  And today was finally the day!
I'll admit I cried.  Part of it was that she was so excited when the door opened for her to go in, she didn't really say bye to me, and my feelings were a little hurt. (yeah, not the most logical thing in the world, but...oh well)

After Allison and Patrick and I went walking around the lake, we came home and while Allison slept, Patrick and I water colored.  He missed Erin, and kept telling me we should go get her, but I managed to keep him entertained.
And then it was time to go get Erin. (the boy stepped in front of her right as I took the pic)
And she skipped to the car.  She had a great first day, and is excited to go back tomorrow (especially since tomorrow is library day and she gets to check out a book!)
So we both survived the first day!  I think I missed her more than she missed me, but that's the way it's supposed to be, right?
