Tomorrow Mommy leaves for an overnight trip to an Apraxia conference in Denver. That means Daddy is responsible for me. He'll get to do many firsts...first time to get me up, dressed and fed, first time to pack my lunch, first time to take me to school...Mommy's laid out clothes, bought prepared foods, drew diagrams of my lunchbox/foods to be added, so it SHOULD BE... WILL BE just fine. Mommy says if you want to stop by or call and check on us, though, that would be just fine.

Daddy told me when I was just a tiny baby that I could have a dog when I turned four because my turning four seemed like it was light years away. As of today, I am nine months away from my fourth birthday, or what I like to refer to as "PUPPY TIME"! The above photo is me riding my cousin dog Jake like a horse. He's old and just wants to sleep, but I just want to play with him. He spends a great deal of his day moving from one spot to another to get away from my pestering, in the hopes of getting some shut-eye. After a while, he realizes it is a losing battle. I am sure after I leave he is both happy (for obvious reasons) and sad (I am the one most likely to drop food from the table) to see me go.

We just got back from a fun trip to San Antonio with our friends Max and Lori. We spent the night at the Riverwalk, despite Daddy's best efforts to convince us otherwise. He was certain that I would fall in the river. Sound silly? overprotective? worry-wartish? Well, my big sister Amy DID fall in the river when she was younger, so he isn't so far off-base. I managed to stay dry and we had a nice dinner dinner before heading back to the room to get in our jammies. We spent a fair amount of time jumping on the bed before settling in to watch a video. The next morning we headed to the San Antonio Zoo, where my favorite exhibit was the butterfly tent. There were 100's of butterflies flying around - one even landed right on Mommy's shirt! What a great time we had...even if I did slip in the lily-pond at the zoo...shhh! Don't tell Daddy!

It's no secret that I am a big fan of tutus. I wear them daily and even nightly. Imagine my sheer joy when I saw this one! My friend Richard picked it out for me, and I will be eternally grateful. I met him and his little brother Christopher at the park this morning for a play date...and I wore my beautiful skirt, of course!

Mommy and I went to the new house this morning to pick up the mail and do a few things. When we stepped outside, we saw the most beautiful sight...several rose bushes blooming big, beautiful pink roses. Mommy says the house is hurt we haven't moved there yet and is doing a good job to lure us with those pretty flowers.

Well, the decision was made, the enrollment forms filled out, the lunch kit and backpack packed...the only thing left was for me to head off to my new school. The Capitol School will hopefully be the perfect fit for me and help me with my speech and language development. For the rest of the spring I'll attend M/W/F mornings. Wish me luck!

As always, I love playing with others' toys.
What a good, calm kitty!
No, you may not have an egg, Scout.
I love being outside!
After packing our annual Easter Bunny cake and some egg-shaped cake balls (a possible new annual item), Mommy and I headed to Bryan early this morning to celebrate Easter with family. My first order of business was changing into one of my cousin Anna's old dance recital outfits. It was perfect for the day since I was as bright as an Easter egg! Later, I accessorized it with some black rubber boots, which added a nice touch. At Uncle Randy's house there is lots of room to roam and play...and also lots of pets (a couple of really big dogs, three cats, a bunny, a hamster...). I was more interested in them than the Easter egg hunt, but I managed to get a few eggs. Besides, how much more candy could a girl need? Daddy didn't get to spend the day with us, but don't feel too sorry for him. He's headed to The Masters in Augusta.
