A new year....

Checking the doctor's tools out.

Maren had her 1 year well baby appointment today.  She's doing wonderfully.  The doctor was enamored with Maren's calm, easy and trusting temperament as well as her cutie looks.  Maren weighed in at 19 lbs and is now 29 inches tall.  She just started cruising around furniture today.  She's ready to go as soon as she gets the whole balance thing down.  She got 3 shots today and was not happy about it one bit.  She cried.  I was really close to crying.  She's sound asleep now though.  She'll get 3 more, plus the flu shot in December when we go back for her next well baby visit.

Reading up on toddler care while waiting.

Maisy had her first day of her preschool year today.  She did great with no tears this morning at drop off.  She was very happy to see that her friend from last year, Juna, was there to play as well!  I can't believe I have a real one year old and a real preschooler.  Where do the years go?

Maisy and me just before we got in the car for school today.

Hope your school year is off to a great start!
