One step closer....

She wasn't quite ready for me to drop her off in the car line today. We still parked the car....took Joseph out, and walked toward the building together....but today....she decided.... she was READY.....she hugged and kissed me OUTSIDE the school doors, and walked in all by herself without one look back!!!!!!!! I wasn't anticipating this unfortunately I didn't have my camera to capture the moment! Tomorrow she says she will be ready for me to drop her off from the car line......we will see. I will be excited for her to be so proud of herself if she accomplishes this....but a little sad that she won't need me to walk her in anymore.

Little J will surely miss our trips inside the school as he loves to greet every student and teacher with a friendly "hi!" He is definitely growing up too! He was finally able to fit into the outfit Thea bought him a mere six months ago....and it is still big! Isn't he handsome?

He is really into the Calliou tv show these days...but I'm thinking Curious George might be more up his alley! So curious about everything! Today we were reading a book that showed a picture of a I showed him a little pumpkin I had just bought last week....and he just couldn't get enough of it, studied it forever!

Next came his fascination with the trash and recycle cans! He just couldn't figure out how to get them to move. He saw the wheels and just couldn't understand why they wouldn't budge....obviously they were still full!!

"And hmmm... I've never noticed this window before..."

And could there possibly be anything more to be curious about in the backyard....of course!!! He fell in love with these red berries when he spotted them on the bushes! "Abble...Abble" he kept saying! Oh my...he thinks these berries are apples. Now not only do I have to worry about him falling off of the rock ledge, or trying to climb the ladder on the swing set when I'm not looking, or falling off the ladder to the I have to worry about him trying to put these "abbles" in his mouth! Who knew the backyard could be full of such adventures!!!! Just leave it to Joe!

AWWWWWWWWWWWWH! This little guy steals my heart. It's hard not to want to squeeze him all the time---luckily he still loves to cuddle!!! I know we're supposed to say 'HANDSOME'--but like Celine---he's our 'Beautiful Boy'!!! <3

I love the shot of little J inspecting the abble berry tree. He's very serious . . . and of course, he's looking dapper in that cute outfit . . . glad it finally fits . . . even if it is 6 mos later! xxoo
