It's been 8weeks since I was recovering in the hospital and getting to know this little one. I haven't had her 2month appointment yet, so I have no current stats to share. By my guess, she's probably 10lbs 8oz. She is a pro at holding up her little head and smiling back to melt any heart (especially mine:).

I'm trying to cherish every little moment with her, since this time goes by so quickly. I've heard so many people say, 'I can't remember my baby ever being this small.' I'm loving every moment. (thanks to Jamie for this oh-so-cute hat!)

Not to be over-shadowed or forgotten, this little guy has been such a trooper through all these changes in our household. He no longer takes naps (otherwise will not go to bed at a decent hour). But today, he climbed up on the couch and fell right to sleep. The best part of it all is that he went to bed at a decent hour! Now-a-days the only time he falls asleep is in the car. I can't remember the last time he has fallen asleep like this, so I couldn't resist the photo op.

I think one of Clark's favorite part of the day is picking up Grace from school. He insists on wearing his backpack when we get her. He really looks up to his older sister (btw, Grace is loving school:)

And baseball is one of his new favorite past-times. Can ya tell?

Big K

We survived our first week of all-day kindergarten (yep, that's right, 8:45am til 3:15pm, I'll get to that in a minute). We walked, well, I walked while Grace rode her scooter to her school. It took me an hour round trip, so we haven't walked again, but it was fun for the first day and perhaps every once in a while. On that first day's drop-off, I was totally expecting to cry at least a bit...but nothing (am I a heartless mom?). I was just so excited and happy for her to be in school, to start this new adventure.

And Clark has been such a trooper with this new transition. He's happy for Grace and loves to take her to and from school.

I thought I would love this all-day kindergarten (just for selfish reasons), but I decided that it's too much too early. I only get to see my little girl a few hours during the day, and she only has a few hours to play and be a kid. So much for a slow, ease into it transition. But luckily she likes school and her teacher. So far, so good.
