Milestones!

Tuesday was a big day! Adi lost her little umbilical cord. The Doc said around day 10 she should lose it so Dayton has been counting down and sure enough the Doc nailed it on the nose! Day 10 hit and off came the cord! Thank goodness for Dayton's sake and no, we're not saving it! :)

Tuesday was an even bigger day for Dayton as he had his frist day of first grade! He woke up at 7 am, got showered, dressed, ate breakfast and took pics. We hopped in the car by 7:55 and arrived at school by 8:15 AM. On the way he asked me not to get out of the car with him; however, once we arrived it was sheer chaos and he changed his mind! There were a bazillion kids with the tearful Moms accompanying them and no, I was not one of them but I was the only Mom in her pajamas!

D was brave and was filled with excitement. It was a little strange for me simple because he it was first grade but I am proud of him and so pleased that he handled it all so well! He's such a good kid (most of the time!) and it's crazy to see my baby grow up so fast!
Ellie was a little distraught but made sure she wished him "gratulations, Dayton" and told him she loved him before he left! Now she's home with me and Adi Cakes until I go back to work.

On the B Side: I absolutely love being a Mom! There are some crazy proud moments as well as those heart aching cry my guts out ones. Somehow things always work out and we all move forward together and I can't help but feel so blessed!

Oh, scary! Madison starts kindergarten on Monday and I am sure I will be one of the tearful moms. You're a brave mommy. (Oh, and I love the jammies thing. I bet there were more moms in jammies, they just weren't brave enough to get out of the car). :0)
