We've had another fun, busy month! Titi, Uncle Ryan, Blake and Ellie came to visit for a week and a half, and we had Blake's birthday party while they were here. They had a bouncy for the party that you and your cousin had hours and hours of fun on!
Gigi was also here to visit for 3 weeks! You had lots of fun singing and dancing with her, and she sure was sad to leave you when she had to go home. Mommy really enjoyed watching the two of you together, singing songs that she used to sing to Mommy and Titi when we were as small as you are.
New loves for you this month include: the movie Alice in Wonderland, looking out your bedroom window, the new exhibit at the museum, and your Uncle Jesse's pigs!
Mommy finally took the plunge and the Binky Fairy came and took your binkies away! For four days, you screamed and cried for it every time it was time to go to sleep. But since that day, you haven't asked for it once. Hooray! You're such a big girl!
Back in May, we went to the zoo while we were visiting down at Titi's house. You and Blake loved the Giant Pandas, so Mimi bought you each a little stuffed panda. You named your panda Tinky, and fell asleep cuddling him in your carseat before we were even out of the parking lot that day. Since then, you sleep with him every night and love him so so so much! Sometimes, you'll even stuff him in the front of your shirt like you have him in a baby carrier. I think he has really helped you with the binky transition, and Mommy may have to get a back up Tinky just in case he ever needs to be washed!
You love to color and Mommy got out her old easel for you to use. You helped me wash it and it's as good as new now! I'm so glad Mimi saved so many of Mommy and Titi's things. It's fun to watch you enjoy them as much as we did. Your coloring is really improving too! You may not stay in the lines, but you definitely color with purpose now, as apposed to just scribbling all over the page.
You're a tech savvy little girl too! Mimi gave you her old Nook Tablet that she doesn't use anymore, and Mommy loaded some books and games on it for you. You would sit on it all day if I let you and you figured out all the games on your own!
You will start pre-school two days a week on the 10th, so we've been spending a lot of time trying to finish up our Spring/Summer To-Do List! We did pretty good and have had loads of fun, and only have a few left to go.
Speaking of pre-school, I can't believe you start so soon. You are so excited and Mommy is excited for you, but I'm also a little sad. You're getting so tall and growing up so quickly, and even though I know you're ready, I'm not sure Mommy is ready for you to be so independent yet! I am so incredibly proud of the smart, funny, caring, adventurous little girl you are becoming though. Always remember Mommy is proud of you and loves you, baby girl! I hope you learn, grow, make new friends, and have tons of fun at school!
