Emma starts school!

How nerve wrecking is this!

I know I am all late for your school pictures.....but better late then never!

The day came and I was so busy that I even forgot how emotional this could be for me.

Emma you were so excited about your first day! I was both excited and sad at the same time. We all went together to drop you off.

It was a very emotional day not only for our little family but for all the parents who's kids where there for the first time.

We all gathered in the lobby with one screaming crying little girl! When I saw Erika our neighbor's eyes build up with tears she reminded me that I was going to leave you today for the 1st time.

I felt it!

That little ball that hurts in your throat when you wanna fight the tears.

We kissed you like nothing said "bye mami" as we walked away!

On our way to the car Seylah began to cry out your name and my eyes welled up with tears..... we sat in the car and I could not hold them back any longer.

The day went by quickly...however I was very sad at home and it felt quiet and empty, although not hearing Seylah crying or fighting or screaming was welcoming!

And before you know it, it was time to get you!

You were all smiles! All you kept saying was "I had so much fun"

As for Seylah this is definitely an adjustment for you. First and 2nd day we walked away with you crying her name and today it was just an "I want Emma" and  "I want to go to school like Emma."
But that quickly faded when Emma was back home.

I know I should have been ready for you Seylah, however next week I will start "God's little explorers" with you.  We'll take pictures of you then.

Here are your 1st day of School pics Emma!

I bet you haven't seen a second day of school pic ha!

With you sister!

Tea Party for Three!

Three years ago titi Sonia gave me a care bears tea set and is all glass so I waited for the moment that we can share tea together in your very own set....

And today was that day!

Although I kinda didn't want to just yet because Seylah.....let's face it you are clumsy....however I couldn't resist my Emma's plead!

So I pulled it out of the closet and we played.

I told you girls you needed to dress up.....and Emma of course you went and got a skirt from your dress up box and your fedora hat. You even added the necklace you made at the neighborhood summer club.

Fancy that!

Seylah, well you just put on your fedora hat and a sweater....and that was the extent of dressing for you.

And we had some real tea!

I made vanilla chamomile tea and a while back I made some heart shape sugar cubes and I just thought this was perfect for the occasion. Cut up some cheese then later an apple and there you go.

Your very own first glass wear tea party!

You girls enjoyed it so much that Emma you asked me to do it again tomorrow but this time with papi.

And so we shall!

I enjoyed your tea talk and attempting to put your pinkie up!

These are the moments I cherish for ever!

A start of a new chapter for Emma

In four days my little Emma, you will be in school and all kinds of nerves are running trough me!

As I sign paper after paper for your VPK class I sit and ask myself (Am I really gonna do this?) (Should I let her go?)

Of course I know I'm not the only parent out there who has asked these questions!

But I know I have to let you grow and become a bit independent! But let's face it Emma your only 4 going on 5 in three months.

I never thought about this moment.....scratch that I have but I thought about it in the distant future......and is NOW!!!!!

Is 3 hours a day for a week and is only for a year (because I did decide to homeschool you and Seylah after this) Regardless that fact I am still a nervous wreck!

I know Seylah and I will adjust perhaps me more quickly then her. But I believe that Seylah needs this time away from you and more attention on her. And I also believe that you need time to experience time without us.

So I pray.....and that's all I can do pray!

I know that God will give me the strenght and peace that I need to let you go.

And as I get ready this week with making your short and skirt because apparently there are no stores that carries a 4T black skirt or short right now.

Don't judge me this is new to me okay!

I know it was a bit late but to my defense I didn't know until last week that I needed all these things.

Anyways I can't wait to take pictures of your first day of VPK! I may even do a little photo shoot!:D

I found this prayer on pinterent, she actually has a 5 day prayer and I just want to add a bit to it.

Heavenly Father,
Thank you, Lord, that you are near to all who call on you in truth. You fulfill the desires of those who fear you; you hear their cries and save them. Thank you God for watching over all who love you (Psalm 145:18-20) Now I pray that Emma would not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, that she would present her requests to you, God. And I pray that your peace, which transcends all understanding, will guard her heart and mind in Christ Jesus. (Phil. 4:6-7) For you, o Lord, are righteous in all your ways and faithful in all you do. May our mouths speak in praise of you, and may every creature praise your holy name for ever and ever. (Psalm 145:17, 21) Lord guard her mind and her heart! Protect her from harm and may she learn and have a great time. In Jesus name...

Emma's new hair cut

Your first hair cut!

Yeah I have cut the ends before but this was your first time getting 3 in cut and style!

You were so the words of Seylah (exciteck....heeee)

We walked to the salon because it was so close by and you did so well, you were a bit nervous but you stood still through the whole thing.
Things that you say after your hair cut...
"is my hair still cut" LOL

And here is the result!

What Seylah says at the end of the video is....You girls are stuck with this word.I hope that sooner rather then later you girls get over this word.
