The Graduate

Gannon graduated!  From Pre-K, that is.  I can't believe that this is his last summer as a "pre-schooler".  My baby boy is going to kindergarten!  Holy wow!  Where has the time gone?!  Just look at how handsome he is all dressed up for his ceremony!  He's pretty silly, too!

My "bigs" all dressed up and ready to go!

And I thought it was hard to get two to look at me and smile ;)

Gannon led everyone in The Lord's Prayer.  He did such a good job!  Bryan and I were so proud of him!  If you know Gannon, you know how shy he can be, and you know how huge this is for him!

This is what Austyn did during the ceremony.

...and Mia slept!
Daddy and his girls ;)

Here is a photo of Gannon receiving his diploma!

 My little graduate!

We couldn't video because they had a videographer there, but I did get a little snippet of one of the acts.  Here is Gannon singing about "Wonderful Words"


If anyone has the secret that slows these munchkins down, please share!

Mia is 2 Months!

Sweet girl, slow down!  Really!  I can't believe you are already two months old. 

Things haven't changed much with you this month.  You are still such a laid back baby.  You only cry when you are tired or hungry (which is All. The. Time!).  Sometimes Daddy and I just look at each other and laugh when you start eating your hand again after just eating. 

You don't fight your sleep as much, but then again, we don't push it as much.  When we see you getting tired, we put you in your swing and you just drift off to dreaming.  You are over swaddle blankets.  You hate them, actually.  You love the security of being wrapped up, but your arms have to be free.

You are still sleeping well.  All day and night, actually.  You have moved your bedtime from 1am to 11pm (thank you!!).  You wake around 3 to nurse, then it's right back to sleep.  You wake again between 6-7 and then sleep until about ten. 

You LOVE bath time!  Although you aren't playing yet, it always puts you in a happy mood.

 You are starting to enjoy your swing more when you are awake.  You like to watch the animals on the mobile and you love the music.

You don't really like pacifiers.  We try them sometimes, but you usually just push them out of your mouth.

 You make us work for smiles!  When we get them, they are just so beautiful!

You had your first hospital stay this month, too.  You can read about that here.  You gave us a god scare, but everything turned out just fine.

Gannon and Austyn just adore you.  Every time you cry (even if they caused it) they come running to help.  They love to play with you, especially now that you are smiling and cooing more.  Gannon is especially impressed that you can roll over.

And for the geek in me, here are some comparisons:

Here is a picture of all Mimi's girls in one of her old dresses.

I can't believe how fast 2012 is flying!  Are we really already halfway through May??  Sheesh! 

That being said, Gannon will get to participate in Pre-K graduation this year!  (He couldn't last year because, technically, he wasn't old enough to be in the class.  They just bumped him up because he was doing the same things they were doing.)  They have asked for 5-10 photos for a graduation slide show.  Now if you know me, you know I have about 5,000 photos!!  so choosing only 5-10 is slightly difficult.

I thought you might like to see the ones I chose.

I can't believe my baby boy is already approaching kinderarten!
