Well, I am super late in posting this but figured I would still post anyway. Emily has been sick the last two weeks - more high fevers so they sent us to the lab for some blood work and a urine test. She was not happy about the whole experience but it gave us a diagnosis and she is now finishing up her antibiotics and doing much better!! Today is her first day back at preschool after 2 weeks off. She was pretty shy and nervous to go but after multiple hugs and kisses she finally went in.
Anyway, part 2 is a recap of Emily's first Valentine's experience at school. It is always such a big and memorable event the first year they get to make cards and pass them out at school! She was talking about it for weeks before and heard the boys talking about their "lists" so she kept asking when she would get her list. When it finally came home in her backpack she was super excited. She was jumping for joy and yelling "I got my list! I got my list!". My mom, otherwise known as "Nannie" was here at our house the same day and she very patiently helped Emily fill out each and every single card, including one for herself! She insisted she had to make one for "Emily" too! So cute!
Emily's party was the day after Valentine's day because she didn't have school that day.... which meant she got her own little photo shoot of opening up her cards after school. She insisted on sitting up on the piano and each and every time she would look in her box to get out another one, she would say to me "take a picture!" Then she would hold it out to me so I could read it and tell her who it was from. At that point she would reply with things like "for cute!" or "that is darling!" or "I love it!"
Then I also took her out back for a few quick photos in her skirt and heart tights. She's definitely soooo different from my boys in that she LOVES having her picture taken on occasions like this, while the boys literally run away from me! Haha! It's like pulling teeth for them, so I have to save up and wait for the bigger holidays like Christmas and Easter!
Be back soon to share my Studio Calico layouts for the month!!
