Madison's 19 mo. check up

We took Madison for a 19 mo. check up and she is doing good. About 20% on weight at 21 lbs and 80% on height. So she is tall and lean. She is so sweet but stubborn at the same time. Just like her daddy.

Here are some funny things she is saying that only daddy and I understand...
"kiky" Kitty
"choo choo" Train
"kyer" Skyler
"ou si" Outside
"tatoo" Tractor or a really loud truck that sounds like a tractor
"cu" Cup
"meemee" Binky
"tt" TV
There are a lot of others but we pretty much know what she wants when she points and says "uh uh" I would say that the funniest things she does is when she toots and turns around like "who did that or where did that come from" It is so funny because she looks completely confused.

1st day of Kindergarten

Well, today was the big day! My baby, Skyler started kindergarten. I can't believe she is so big. It seems like yesterday she was starting to talk. She sure has changed in the past 5 years. Here are some pictures of the last 5 years. Just for the record, I have only cried 4 times in the past couple of days!

Kindergarten and New House

Skyler will be starting Kindergarten next week and I am a nervous wreck. I never thought I would be one of these parents but here I am, stressing over it. I know she will be fine and do wonderful but I worry about how safe and secure schools are, if she will make new friends easy, if her class mates are going to be nice to her, if they are going to be good or bad influences on her, and most of all I want her to enjoy school while learning.

As for the house, it is coming a long. We have been in for about 3 weeks and this past weekend we got to stay home and get a lot done on the house. We missed the retirement party for Schuyler's Uncle because we had to wait on the Internet and satellite guys but we were able to get a lot accomplished. There still is so much to do and buy but it is coming along well. I will post some pics soon and we plan on having a get together once we get everything unpacked and put in its place.

Skyler's 5th birthday

Skyler's 5th birthday went great. We had it at Yogi Bear's Jelly Stone Park. It was a little hot but it made for a great time at the park park portion. Skyler is so happy to be 5, becuase she now gets to go to the "big kid school". She got clothes, toys and a back pack for school. She loves her "big kid" back pack so much that she wears it almost everynight.
