Big Girl Bed...

Last weekend Alyssa went to nana and papa's while Matt and I got Alyssa's room ready for the big girl bed! It was a busy weekend to say the least. First we painted her bed, and then we got all the bedding put on the new bed so that when she came home from Church on Sunday she would have a big surprise. We also, moved some furniture out and got rid of many clothes that did not fit anymore! (...Tear) She ended up with 3 of the 5 drawers in her chest empty and ready for fall clothes!

We brought her home and she was so excited! She took her Sunday afternoon nap in her bed and did great! So far she has not come out of her room and I am praying she never figures out how to. I still have to get her up in the mornings!! YAY!!

We have a few pictures of her and her big girl bed and she looks so tiny!!!

Next project is getting the nursery ready for baby sister!!
This is how we often find her sleeping...sideways! She doesn't know what to do with all the extra room!
Please excuse the blue pillow! She made that at VBS and has to sleep with it!!!
Sound asleep....
She was SOOO excited! She loved her new bed!

New Pictures...

Here are a few new pictures of Alyssa. I know she does not have much of any clothing on, but this is the best we could get. Clothes or no clothes, we still think she's pretty stinkin cute! She was in our room singing "Father Abraham" and was mommy really tearing up! It was too sweet and almost more than I could handle! But, I was able to snap a few shots before she got the camera!!

My spelling...

Please excuse my spelling and lack of proofreading on my previous post. I just realized I put FRIST day of school. What a goober!

Frist Day of School...

Well Alyssa started her first day of preschool today. She woke up not thrilled with the fact that she was going to school, but she ended up having a great time and a wonderful day. She is the only girl with 6 little boys so that should be interesting! I am praying she does not come home talking about any boyfriends anytime soon! Or really, EVER!! She informed me today that she did not want to go and play with her friends at school, but that obviously changed once she noticed there were no little girls in there! She was the QUEEN!!
I will have some pictures to post soon!!

Laughing till it hurts...

Oh my goodness. The things your children do! I think this tops them all! Alyssa cames in tonight and said she wanted to go swimming, and I told her it was raining so we would have to wait. Next thing I know she comes in with her swimsuit on...Well, somewhat! Get ready for some laughter! I was laughing so hard i could not breathe and tears were coming down my face!! I managed to get the camera and capture these shots!!!!

By the way, Please excuse my child's hair! We really do clean her up and put clothes on her!! I promise!

It's Official...

I can now say it is official..Alyssa is potty trained. She has done great and now goes everywhere in panties!! It is just soo cute and makes her seem sooo big! I am so proud of her! She has been in panties for a while with no accidents but I wanted to give it a few more weeks before I made it official! YAY for Alyssa and YAY for no more pull-ups! This is a huge praise with another one on the way! I am so grateful!
