Barrett's First Trip to the ZOO

We ventured to the zoo this morning. It was Barrett's first time and he was so excited that he slept through the entire thing! He didn't wake up until it was time for our picnic lunch after the zoo. I'm sure he had a great time though!! The rest of us sure did...we got to see the the trainer with the Jaguars and with the Elephants too. And then we had a fun picnic by the pond. The pigeons tried to horn in on our lunch but the girls enjoyed chasing them away, over and over again!!

..::A Big BIG Day::..

A new chapter has begun....the school years!! Alexa turns 5 in November, which means she missed the cutoff for Kindergarten by only a couple of we opted for preschool this year. Three mornings a week, Monday-Wednesday-Friday, from 9am-noon at Lord of Grace Preschool, just under 10 minutes from our house. It's fabulous! Alexa was soooooooooo excited for her first day! She had no problem walking right into her classroom and getting settled. No tears here...for her OR for me! We were both soooooo READY for today!! After I picked her up and asked how her day went, she asked "mommy, can I go every day??"! I'd say it's safe to say that she likes it! I know she's technically ready for kindergarten...but this will be a good transition year for her to get ready for all day-every day kindergarten next year!
Good luck, Alexa...mommy and daddy are so proud of you!!

Are They Related??

I'm pretty sure people can tell these 3 cute kiddos are siblings!! These are all my babies right around 2 1/2 months old. Of course, the headband/bow gives it away who the girls are...but Barrett fits right in too, even if he does have his own "look". However, can you believe how much BIGGER Barrett is than the girls were at his age...I mean, just the length of his legs, wow!! I don't think it'll be long before he towers over his BIG sisters!!

Look who is...

Our little man is growing up WAY too fast!! He's only 3 1/2 months old and already sitting up. Albeit a bit wobbly but sitting nonetheless!!
