Kindergarten???!?!?!?!!?!

Our oldest C started Kindergarten this week. I feel like I've been preparing for it for about a year, but it still came so fast! She is in a dual language program in our district which adds fuel to the fire for me because I'm so nervous for her! She has no idea that it's not normal though so nothing has phased her yet!

Dropping her off Monday was bittersweet, and I think we handled it better than I expected! She's so big and after only five days seems to have things figured out?! She knows where to go in the mornings and they've given her back to me every afternoon.....so.....I guess we're ok?

This first week flew by as well and I know the school year will too. It's going to be such a joy to watch her grow in her academics and see how far she's come at the end of the year.

Now for the thing no one tells you about when you're sending your first off for kindergarten....
You have a SCHEDULE now?! Like, no planning impromptu trips to visit family? No random ice cream dates for lunch? No spontaneous play dates?! The ringing of the school bell has me in a headlock! But I'm so excited to see her at the end of the day and hear all about her new class and friends!

Copeland Grey (Little Woman #3)

Alright, I gave myself some time before being disappointed that I hadn't posted again sooner than now. I mean we did just have a baby. The third baby. There are children everywhere. 

Copeland Grey came to us on the last day of July (which was good, since I made myself a promise that I'd never be pregnant in August in Texas).

This lil' lady wasn't little! By my standards anyway. My first two girls were 6 and 7 lbs. 
Copeland was NINE. A full, even, NINE pounds. Needless to say the delivery was interesting. I won't bore you (unless you ask of course). My little large nugget is beautiful. Of course she is! 

I already miss the hospital...



And now for a photo dump...my apologies...








We are adjusting to life with 3 and trucking along just fine! I had evidently forgotten everything I love and loathe about newborns. She's delicious and I want to hold her all the time and let her sleep in my arms all the time...until about 10pm. Which is when SHE wants to be with me all the time. Sleeping is more difficult than I remember with the others. I guess I need to stop comparing. They are all so different. Things that worked for my big girls have been thrown out the window. She has definitely made it apparent that she's an individual even though she's the third girl.

Her nursery is pretty much complete! Even though I haven't taken many pictures of it. My MILove made us the most beautiful garland for above her crib!





I'll be trying to keep up with this blog and Copeland's world as much as possible!
