Rylie decided since we just did a "birthday party" celebration for David, that Mimi needed one too since her birthday's right after David and they're about to leave out of town. So Saturday Mimi and Gaga came over to celebrate! (Today's her actual birthday!)
Some girls were excited to see Gaga!
And Mimi! They're both wearing their Mimi's Girl shirts! Dont think I can part with them when they outgrow them.
Mimi brought cute purses from Aunt Lana in Lubbock that the girls LOVE! Thanks Aunt Lana!
Mimi's birthday goodies
Rylie made her a card of course
This is blurry, but from Remy-lobster printed napkins and a tablecloth and red/white/blue glow sticks. We use the tablecloth and napkins when we go to the lobster pound and sit on the picnic tables in Maine and the glow sticks are for when we're at the fireworks show in Maine.
And some cute picture frames with pics of the girls while in Maine for their cottage up there. (Adirondack chairs are everywhere in Maine so this frame was perfect!)
She's also wearing a necklace that was from Rylie, along with the frames.
And some lobster serving dishes for Maine from David and I.
Are you noticing a theme? Hehe! We cant wait to get back up there in just one more week!
Aside from Remy starting MDO, here's what else we've been up to the past week or so.
Friday, June 7 the girls just looked so cute dolled up
Stealing sister's bracelet
Rylie spent the night at Mimi's and finally lost her 5th tooth! It'd been hanging forever! So toothfairy stopped by Mimi's house that night!
Remy looked so cute Sat June 8
Sun June 9 I had a FUN lunch with some neighbor ladies to celebrate 2 of them having birthdays. It stormed outside the whole time I think and we seriously sat and talked after lunch for 4 hours!! Loved it!
Tues June 11-while Remy was at her 1st day in MDO, Rylie and I watched "Judy Moody" (again) and I finally sorted through Rylie's artwork box! Every single craft/picture/drawing she's done since she started doing them (age 2)!!
Sorted out ones that were trash, keeping ones with hand/foot prints, and took pictures of the other cute ones we love to make her an artwork book.
Then I took her to the library before picking up Remy. She's doing this reading program and finished level 1 (reading 10 books) and got a certificate and picked a new book to keep for free! We love Amelia Bedelia!
She was reading a book in the library and suddenly she said "Mommy, my tooth came out!" Tooth #6 on the bottom left!
This is video of Remy when she gets excited everytime Full House theme song comes on. Watch her at the end-hilarious!
Wed June 12
Last Thur (June 13) I started a bible study with my MOPS ladies. I was trying to get a picture of the girls in their dresses.
Best I could get. (Remy's eyes reflected my cell phone flash) I tell ya, it's WORK getting a picture these days!
That night Remy sat trying to dismantle the stairs gate while I cooked dinner. She kept saying "uh-oh-is-ok" real fast lol
And this face is why she gets away with things. Cutest lil stinker!
Here's video of Remy that night. She's started holding her hand to her face like it's a phone and she also tried climbing the stair gate!
Last Fri (June 14) we finally ventured to the Kingwood library! Remy checked out some computer games
She thought she was such big stuff =)
We came home with a load of books to keep us occupied awhile!
It wasnt easy getting pictures before we left, but I got a few cute ones.
Sneaked a picture of her eating breakfast
Her lunch I packed-half of a turkey/cheese sandwich, goldfish crackers, apple slices and cantaloupe.
Rylie was my big helper!
Walking her baby sister into her school....the same school Rylie just graduated from last month.
Ok, so we get to the hallway outside Remy's class and Remy suddenly realizes what's going on, quickly rips her backpack off her back, turns around and bolts down the hall in huge, dramatic sobs.
It. Was. Hysterical.
She was making a break for it!
So I carried her into her class crying, she takes a look around, then stops crying. She got down and just walked around checking things out and was perfectly fine!
Thinking of the trouble she could get into, I'm sure!
She loved the rocking chairs!
(picture through viewing window)
Then Rylie and I hid in the back of chapel. See Remy in the middle??!!
Sneaking over to see her better
Why yes, I was stalker mom with my extra zoom camera lens :)
Oops, I think she saw me! hehe
She did great! She sat so still the whole time and just listened to it all.
Her teachers posted these pictures later-Remy's on the left trying to hand the kid beside her the lid to her lunch
They said she even napped for about 25 min but she did great! She didnt want to leave when I picked her up!!
I gotta say, it was sooo surreal dropping Remy off and Rylie leaving with me. I just had an emotional "goodbye" at this school last month when Rylie graduated, now I'm starting over. But it's completely different because it's the "baby" building--with napmats and no carline. Feels like another life! I almost forgot to pack diapers because I wasnt used to having to with school! But so far Remy loves it and I feel so much better now that her first day went so well!
