Class Photo

These are just too cute not to share.... well maybe not Nyah's blank stare expression in the class photo but definitely the collage of the kiddos... lol!

 I'm so glad that this year when asked what she wanted to be when she grew up she said Astronaut... looks like she has moved on from last year's answer... Chicken!! Thank goodness!

Preschool Graduation

Someone please help this momma's heart... this past week has been emotional!

Nyah graduated preschool!

Jay and I are both so incredibly proud of our girl. Our journey at Sunshine Hills Preschool has been nothing short of amazing and we are so sad to be ending this chapter. We've made some incredible friendships and we will miss seeing all our friends every week.



They did a little ceremony on the last day and all the kids proudly walked in wearing their graduation caps. They sang some songs and then Teacher Cathy presented each one of them with a graduation certificate and their scrapbooks. I could barely hold it together. My heart was literally swelling with so much love and pride for my girl that I thought it was going to burst.












It's hard to believe that this little girl is off to Kindergarten in September. I wish I could keep her home with me forever. It's so sad that soon she will spend more time at school than with us (awake). Being a stay at home mom with her has been my greatest joy. I hope it takes a really REALLY long time for September to come around!

Cake pop

Today, we ran errands. Not Nyah's favorite kind of day but I did try and break the day up in 2 parts and squeeze in some crafts in the middle. 


On our 2nd to last stop we ran into our bbf's at Chapters and both girl's fell in love with way overpriced jellycat bunnies! Thankfully we managed to move them along without any bunnies... Although Im pretty sure Em took me up on my suggestion and went straight home to write a letter to the Easter bunny asking for the bunny stuffie! Sorry T! 

On our way out Nyah decided she wanted a cake pop from the adjoining starbucks. We had just gone grocery shopping so I told her we'd grab something at home. You would have thought from the crying that insued that I had told her I was never going to feed her ever again!!! And when she said "Momma, your breaking my heart" I almost died and bought cake pops for us both!

Belly kisses

After dinner tonight, Nyah came up to me in the kitchen and wanted to kiss my belly! She was insistent, trying to pull my shirt up. I really didnt want to lift my shirt so she could see my jiggly belly hang out but I did... because I don't want to put my body issues on her. 

After she gave my belly a kiss... She looked me straight in the eyes and said "there is a baby in there!!" I told her no there isn't and she gave me a sassy look and said "yes there is!"

Still trying to figure out how to explain to her that mommy ate 3/4 of a small pizza for dinner and that it was just a "food baby"! Lol!

Try! Try!

Today, we talked about when you were a baby. You love to hear about how you grew in my tummy and how small you were when you were born. We talked about how you loved to cuddle momma, have "milkies" and sleep in my arms. You poked my boobs and said "you had milk in there?... They are so squishy!" Thanks a lot kid! Your the reason they are so squishy! I replied and told you yes and that one day when you have a baby you will have milk in there too... You then stood up on the bed, lifted your shirt and said "here momma, try! try!" while poking me in the cheek! Haha!

Guilt

I feel guilty... Guilty for not posting in this space for months... Guilty that Nyah will be missing a chunk of her 4th year documented... I keep telling myself Ill catch up... Ill do a big post of halloween, her birthday, Christmas but then I never get to it. I feel this enormous amount of pressure to remember every little moment and I worry that as time passes Ill forget the little stuff. So today, Im letting go of the big stuff I havent posted but wanted too and am moving forward with the little stuff. The stuff that is short and sweet.

Like today, when I asked her to bring me her plate and she just slumped onto the couch and said " no momma, you do it... I need to just relax"... Are you kidding me?? Relax? Do you even know what that means? Lord knows you have never seen me or your father do this relax thing you speak of since you were born! Lol! 

Maybe after your done relaxing sweetheart you can explain to me why you must always eat your breakfast naked! Don't you ever get cold? 

 
It feels good to write a little in this space! No pressure... But I hope I do it again soon!

Disneyland 2015

No matter how many times you go, it NEVER loses it's magic!

This post probably includes an excessive amount of photos... but in my defense... I deleted all our photos off our camera card before saving them so these are the photos from the Disney photo pass... and if you knew how much I had to pay to get them... you would post them all too!

I'm pretty sure it was almost exactly 12 months since our last visit to Disneyland. This time we hijacked our friends Brandy and Paul trip. They were going with Brandy's mom and sister and well we pretty much invited ourselves! lol! We had a great trip and enjoyed all of Nyah's favorites... the Ariel ride... over and over again... I'm pretty sure on our last day I rode it 5 times with her! This trip we also made sure to get in everything we missed the last trip. All in all, I'd say we had an amazing time... minus the shuttle home... which almost made us miss our flight! I hate ending a holiday that way but it makes for a fun story.
