How cute is my little girl?? All this girly stuff is so different and fun for me. I'm so used to Hot Wheels, Power Rangers, Bakugan and dirt....I have forgotten what it's like to be a little girl and play dress up and hold baby dolls....I love it. Gaga bought this outfit last year, but it was too big. I was so afraid she would be too big this year. Fortunately it fits just right!! She even seemed to pose like a real cheerleader...adorable!!

Well, it finally came....It was time for Finley to go to preschool at the wonderful Grace Place (the preschool at our old church Grace Baptist). We were all fighting sickness all weekend and I was so afraid it would carry over into the week, luckily we all just had snot and coughs and sneezes left. As excited as Finn HAD been, he was SO not into going to school this morning. The only way i got him to go was to remind him he had a new shirt and new shoes to wear.....and of course his new camouflage backpack. BTW- it is not a "camo" backpack....Finn will fight you on this subject!!! Anyways, we made our way to school unscathed and he seemed more than ready to go in. We went in and put his things away and right to his seat he went. I stood there expecting him to turn to me crying and grab hold of my leg...a big scene to follow...but nothing. He was perfectly fine. I told him goodbye and I stood outside his door watching my big boy...so brave, excited and comfortable. I barely made it back to my car and got in before the tears started flowing. Now don't get me wrong.....I've been waiting for this day to come. Finn and I have reached the point in our relationship where separation is needed!! ;) But as a mom, I felt I had left part of my heart behind. I cried all the way home. He had a great day and even slept during nap time!! I really am proud of how mature he is. I love you Finley. Big kisses from momma! (FOR SOME REASON i CANNOT GET ALL THE IMAGES TO UPLOAD..SORRY)
