Cristina Lei's first day of preschool

Cristina handled the first week like a champ...there were several tears at drop-off up until about halfway through week two, but in the end, she's thriving. She's getting so big and people often think she's 3 or 4 but she's almost 2-1/2. her vocabulary has come along very well. We are starting to learn "gentle hands" and "friendly fingers"...after a few episodes of being a bit too aggressive with other classmates. Her appetite could be better but she's "grazing"...not fully eating a complete meal but trying her best. But all-in-all she's really getting along well and we couldn't be happier.

(yes, there are terrible twos...her increasing vocabulary includes such wonderful words such as "NO" or "STOP IT" or "MINE" or whatever it may be...but hopefully she's moving through this stage and on to of more challenges but so, so much fun).

Here are some photos over the past month or so.



A visit from Papa at Preschool...happy day...
