First Day of School

My little baby girl started Preschool yesterday. I did better than I expected, I didn't cry:) I just choked up as the teacher was walking Lucy through the morning routine. I think it is just knowing that somebody else will be seeing my baby grow and progress and I just get to hear about it later (hopefully).
Lucy will be going to school Tuesdays and Thursdays for 3 hours a day. She was so excited to start and now can't wait to go back to play with her friends tomorrow. I hesitated to send Lucy to two years of preschool, but she is so social I knew she would love the chance to interact with new friends. I think that after weighing the pros and cons, Lucy is one child that will benefit from the social and structured environment her preschool will provide for her. I will get over being away from her I am sure.
Below is Lucy sporting one of her new outfits (I can't believe I had to go school clothes shopping this year) and her new backpack. Doesn't she just look so old?!!!
And at home with mommy...Little buddy who is almost 15-months-old. He is my happy little guy who often sports my favorite outfit for any little baby, a white onesie!!! I took pictures of him this morning in his new favorite place, the bin his cars live in.
I can't get enough of his cheesy smile. He sees a camera and gives this face...sometimes I think it is a face only a mother could love, but oh how I LOVE IT!
