She's pretty stinkin' cute. 6 months is a pretty big milestone!

Some pictures

Here we are on Mother's Day. These were taken on the church lawn after the meetings. I thought we looked kind of matchy-matchy and wanted some pictures. I was pretty excited that we got 4 out of 5 looking at the camera (minus my hair issues:).
Hannah ate solid foods for the first time a week or so ago. She did really well and likes it. The next picture is of our 2-high-chair-1-posing kiddos.
The other day I put this outfit on Hannah and remembered distinctly that this was the outfit Abby was wearing in some of her first "I can sit up by myself pictures". I imagined that picture in my mind thinking about how much they look alike. Hannah is not a completely independent sitter, but she is doing pretty well so I thought I'd take a picture of her on my bed (like the other had been) and post the "twin" pictures on the blog. Here is Hannah:
Then I went and looked for the picture of Abby. I found it and they don't look nearly as much alike as I thought. Other pictures do, I swear.
In these pictures Hannah is about exactly one month younger than Abby. You can tell by the way the shirt fits how much bigger she is than Abby was. They are sitting on the same blanket. I planned it that way:)

Mother's Day at Preschool

When I taught Kindergarten, the Mother's Day program was one of the biggest days of the year. Highly anticipated. Loved it. Today I got to be the mom. Loved it even more. Abby has really enjoyed her preschool class (as have we).

When I arrived Abby was waiting for me by her locker with a gift - a hand print pot holder. She then escorted me into one of the classrooms and served me a bowl of sherbet with animal crackers. We drew pictures for a few minutes and then joined together for songs and stories.

It has been a good school year. Playgroups, preschool, story times, speech help, etc. We're grateful for fun friends to associate with and nice teachers and other adults who are excellent influences on our kids.
