Baby Girl

Sammy started preschool this morning - she'll be going in the mornings on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  It'll be time for just some Mommy-Thomas time.  I almost can't even think of what it's like to have one kiddo around the house!  ONE.  O.N.E.

Ahh, my baby girl.  My soft, squishy, sensitive, snuggly one.  I'm having a really hard time letting this one go {sigh}.  

It's a good thing, I know it is.  She's bored silly at home, and she's chompin' at the bit for adventure and friends and craft projects.  It's good for her...and I suppose...good for me.  I've always said that we choose to do preschool for our kids to help them prepare and transition into kindergarten.  And it's been successful - we have yet to be the family with a terrified and crying child on the first day of kindergarten.  I'm starting to think that this easing into the transition thing is more for me than it is for them though :-)

Here she is this morning, all spiffed up in her new clothes, tote bag packed with class supplies:

I love her sweet profile:

I was having a tough time getting a genuine smile from her - she kept posing instead.  But then...her older brother came to my aid.  He jumped behind me and started making silly faces.

Then he pretended that he was a bird coming in for a landing on my head...

And THEN he was a bird POOPING on my head! (hey, whatever it takes!)

I think I'm going to offer him $10 to be my assistant for my next shoot!

This is Sammy's favorite hairstyle lately - she kept insisting (and INSISTING) that we take a picture of it:

Ahh, the feet.  I feel like there's always something so genuine about what's on a person's feet.  Here's my baby girl in her fancy school clothes, ribbons in her hair....and pink little girl flowers and hearts on her shoes.  Whew...still my baby for a little longer.

Sammy and her "Best Daddy":

Me and my little one:

This was Sammy's first day last year - look how much she's changed!

I love you, my sweet Samantha Ruth.  Thanks for picking shoes with hearts and flowers...did your Mama's heart good this morning.
