1st Day of Preschool


Bella started her 1st day of preschool today at Stringfellow Preschool. Her teacher is Ms. Monica. She has been excited to start preschool for over 6 months now so it has been a long time coming for her. She didn't even shed a tear or even look up to say goodbye (which was a little hard on mom). Her preschool lasts from 9 am to 2 pm. This seemed a little long for me, but now that it is almost over for the day it has gone really fast. It was such a rainy day today when we dropped her off and of course our umbrellas have been lost somewhere in the move. I am now watching the news and it looks like there is some severe flooding going on her in Dallas which I can understand because there was some torrential rain going on. Bella was sad because she knew with the rain that she could not play on the outside preschool playground.

Lola is such a happy baby. She always greets you with a smile and likes to babble a lot. She is such a good baby. Bella was such a serious baby and so it is definitely different to have a baby that always has a smiley face for you. She had her 4 month check up yesterday. We were expecting her to be off the charts in height because she felt so long to us, but she was not as tall as we were thinking. Her are her stats:
Weight: 14 lbs 3.4 oz Percentile: 60%
Height: 25 1/4 inches Percentile: 80%
Head: 42 cm Percentile: 75%
Dr. Steve put up Lola's statistics next to Bella's at that age and Bella definitely trumped her. It is amazing what a $40 a can formula will do for weight growth. Lola's weight growth is definitely slow, but she is starting to eat better.
Hope everyone is well!
