5 years

5 years ago today-this happened.

First time holding my baby girl.  Hanoi, Vietnam  5/2/07

I have been horrible with the blog this year.  Facebook is just so easy and quick--but certainly not as good for preserving memories.  Or maybe it will be.  Time will tell.  This has been a wonderful year for Josie.  She started Kindergarten.

First day of school!

She dressed up as Jasmine for Halloween.

Seriously, how cute it she?
The glowing pumpkins kinda look like they're growing out of her head.

She had a fantastic Christmas.  Or as I like to call it-the Christmas that My Little Pony exploded all over my home.

Lots of new things this year:  She learned to read.  She learned to add and subtract.  She learned to rollerskate . . .

Pink and poofy is the only way to skate.

She cut her hair.

Totally her idea!

She perfected her sassy pose:

5 going on 16 . . .

Of course, some things never change.  She still thinks "underwear" is the funniest word ever.  She loves pop songs by Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, and Kelly Clarkson.  She thinks Party Rock Anthem is actually, "Polly Pockets In The House, Tonight . . . ."  She LOVES to sing-but the words are ALWAYS wrong.

She did have a fancy, poofy, pink dress on earlier--but changed by the time I got there . . . .

Remember this photo?  This was last year at this time when we went to Kindergarten Round Up.  Her new outfit was a little big on her then . . .

Look Ma!  No hands!

May 1, 2012    What a difference a year makes!  

Let's not talk about the awkwardly placed flower in her hair.  I lost that battle.

Happy Family Day, Josie-Bean!  I am one proud and lucky Mama!
