School for Maddie

The Cinderella party will have to wait, again, so I can post about my little bug's first day of school this year! She has been itchin' to go ever since Avery started almost 3 weeks ago. 
She leaped out of bed this morning, so excited to get ready and wear her new yellow "apple" dress we got months ago just for this occasion.

 When we got ready to take this photo she told me that she needed her back pack in the pic as well. Well of course, how could mommy not think of that? This girl always keeps me on my toes.

And to compare with last year, of course.

Just growing like crazy!

I really wanted to get a pic of her with her new teachers, or going into her classroom! But like last year, she basically ran in before I could do anything. I barely got a kiss. It was an air kiss, actually, and then she was gone. She ran right over and started doing a puzzle.

When I picked her up today, I was happily surprised to hear her talk nonstop about what she did in school. Last year it was like pulling teeth to get anything about her day! I just loved listening to her tell me little stories and who she played with and how funny something was. Almost brings tears to a happy mommy's eyes. All I can hope is that she keeps loving school and stays as bright and thoughtful as she is right now at this age that I can't help but love.

Breaking News

I mean, if you consider "breaking" to be last Sunday, since this post has sat unfinished since then. Sigh. 

I am so traumatized. She's totally fine. 
So hard to get a good pic! Sorry this is a little graphic.

We noticed it was loose on Saturday after an epic meltdown. Bub the hub wanted to pull it but I just couldn't let him. I've so been dreading this milestone because I am truly worried she might choke on a tooth, like in the middle of the night or some other time we are not with her. After she calmed down, she seemed to think it was pretty funny. Couldn't keep her tongue off of it, of course.

I was watching it like a hawk, as you can imagine. It came out at lunch on Sunday and it was hubby who noticed first. Just disappeared! Tooth fairy a little disappointed. Avery gave no signs of noticing at all, very giggly actually. Glad the first one is done, but still nervous about the rest! Love her little toothless grin though :)

Birthday Girl

Sorry to leave y'all hangin! Maddie's birthday and party were wonderful! So much to share, it will probably take me about 4 posts. My newly three year old got her traditional wake-up balloons and happy birthday singing. We had a fun playground visit in the morning and went to the pool in the afternoon. Spoiled with presents all day, blew out her three pink candles after dinner, and went to bed very late! You know, just a perfect day for Maddie Brynn.

Happy morning birthday girl

visiting an awesome new playground that daddy helped design!

While Friday was pretty magical, it's hard to beat the moment when Cinderella showed up at her birthday party the next day.

She's spotted!


And then totally attached at the hip from there!

Doesn't it just make your heart smile??
More soon!

Gettin' Ready

Things are a little crazy this week as we get ready to celebrate the THIRD birthday of this little lovely.

And what a wonderful and amazing three years it has been, Maddie Brynn. 

A couple of months ago, I started asking her what kind of birthday party she wanted to have. The answer every time was Cinderella! Not surprising considering she plays dress-up in her Cinderella dress pretty much every day, but I gave her lots of other choices too. She never wavered! So Cinderella it is. And it would be a huge understatement to say this girl is READY for her party. She talks about it all of the time. Almost every night for the last couple of months, while getting ready for bed, she starts sentences with, "Tomorrow, at my birthday/Cinderella party...". We corrected her for awhile and then just finally gave up! The concept of time is a hard thing to explain to a two year old, and patience is nonexistent. 

Her actual birthday is Friday and the party is Saturday, so count on lots and lots of pics! She's not even going to believe it when she wakes up Friday and it actually IS her birthday, lol. We can't wait to celebrate this kind, loving, smart, beautiful princess.
