Laney's first day of school

Laney started school yesterday so we took her for her first day...and wow...that was really hard! Alot harder than what I thought it would be. I was fine up until we walked out of her classroom and I saw her standing there watching us leave and tears were filling her eyes. She sat down at her desk and put her face in her hands so no one would see her cry. Mike walked back in and talked to her for a few seconds, telling her about how much fun she would have and that it was just like going to Sunday school and we'd be there to get her later and stuff. I'm so thankful he was there, because I would've started bawling with her. I cried really bad on the way home (I like to blame it on pregnancy hormones :P). I knew that she'd do okay and that she would have alot of fun (which she did...she had a great day!), but it was just hard leaving her. I've never been apart from her since she was born...I've always stayed home with her and she's never gone to preschool. I had a dr. appt. yesterday afternoon, so that kinda took my mind off of how much I missed her. Chloe's really gonna miss her playmate. When we were in the hallway and Mike was talking to Laney, Chloe said, "I'm sure gonna miss Laney" :( Today was her first day to ride the bus, and she did great! She got on and didn't look back :) The little girl across the street from us rides the same bus, so at least she knows someone.

Here are the pictures from yesterday.

Happy 6th Birthday Laney!

My baby girl is 6!!! How did that happen? She seems so much bigger now...she's not into babyish things anymore. She's starting to like bigger kid things like High School Musical and shows like The Suite Life, Hannah Montana, Drake and Josh, etc. I remember when she was only a few months old and I would think, I can't believe I'm gonna have a 2 year old here she is turning 6!!! It's amazing!! Here's how she's grown...

She's such a sweetheart and I love her so much! Happy Birthday Laneybug!

Elijah's first haircut

Elijah got his first haircut this past weekend when we were in Oklahoma. He really needed one. I kinda wanted to grow it out, but it was at that in between stage where I couldn't do anything with it and it was driving me crazy.

We had a good time in Oklahoma. I have a bunch of pictures, but I haven't put them all on the computer yet. I'll probably do it tomorrow. Saturday night there were 23 people staying the night in a 3 bedroom house. Luckily we got there Friday night when there weren't that many people and got a bedroom for our family. Elijah slept in a pack n play...thank goodness they had one because we forgot ours. They have a trailer that they hooked electricity and water up to and one family stayed in there, but the house was very packed! It was fun though seeing everyone. We came home Monday and Mike had to leave about an hour after we got home to go back to Omaha. He won't come home till Friday since he went Monday night, so 1 more night by myself...that's the worst part...sleeping alone is no fun. The girls sleep on the floor in my room because they kick me constantly if they're in the bed, so it makes it a little better when they're in there, but I just want my hubby!

I had to take my glucose tolerance test! They gave me the worst flavor of that drink...cola! It was horrible!! I seriously gagged the whole time I was drinking it. I asked for fruit punch, but they were out, so they just gave me what was there, I guess. I never thought the other times I've taken this that the drink was that bad, oh my gosh...don't ever ask for the cola flavor! Yuck!

Elijah's saying a few more words. He's been saying ball, car, I did it, mama and dada (which he doesn't really say to us...he just mumbles it) and oh cool. Now he's saying eat (which comes out eaty) when he's hungry, drink, bye bye, key, dog, and a new word he learned today...poo poo! He learned that when I was changing his disgusting diaper. :P

Laney starts school two weeks from today. We went school shopping Friday before we left for Oklahoma and got a bunch of clothes and her school supplies that were on the list...that was really fun! We go to meet her teacher next Thursday...Mike won't be able to go...he'll be coming home that night, but he won't make it in time to go with us. If he's still in Omaha the week she starts, he's gonna take a vacation day and come home Wednesday night to be here for her first day. She's gonna be riding the bus after the first day (we're gonna take her the first day, of course) and it's at times like these when I'm so happy we live right across the street from her school. I can seriously see the school from my front window. I looked at her bus schedule and she'll be the last one picked up before school and the first one dropped off after school...and the stop is right in front of our she'll be on the bus for maybe 5 minutes total. Which works out great for both of us...she really wanted to ride the bus after she found out that her cousin Bailey does, and I don't have to worry about her being on there for a long time and them dropping her off far from our house. She asks me all the time how many days she has till she starts. She's so excited about starting. School starts at 9:25 and gets out at like 4:10...doesn't that seem late? I dunno, maybe it's just me. I remember starting school around 8 and getting out at 3. Whatever though...

This baby kicks like crazy! I swear, I think he/she has a sleeping disorder. There are nights when I just lay there and try to rock it to sleep so I can fall asleep. Geez...settle down it there, would ya?
