First Day of School

Today was Harper's first day at her new school.  We will miss Mrs. Kristen, but look forward to the new adventure too.  She was all ready for her big debut.  As you can see, Harper has graduated to a backpack instead of the diaper bag, and she loves it!

She is a little unsteady with it on her back, but she'll get the hang of it!

Here is a face that we have come to know over the past few weeks / month.  We are starting a tantrum phase for sure.  Apparently once we started watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, all the school talk was for the birds and she let us know she did not want to leave the house this morning, she wanted Mickey and his hot dog dance time!

We were definitely worried this attitude might spell trouble for her new teachers on her first day.

Lucky for us (and them), she recovered and seemed to adjust pretty well.  They gave us a good daily report, and the first thing the teacher said to Emily when she picked Harper up was "She sure likes to eat!".  We are proud of her great appetite and love of most any food.  We hope it continues and she doesn't become a picky eater.

Anyway, in addition to the little report which tells us how much she ate and when she had a wet diaper or a "BM", we got this little gift showing her day today in photos.

 Apparently, she did pretty well, and at least today didn't seem to be the kid that cries constantly.  Somehow, they even got her to nap on the cot, which is astounding considering we can't get her to sit still for 2 seconds on the floor, let alone try to lay down in anything other than her crib.  Although we did notice someone in the photo is sitting beside her so maybe they had to hold her down at first!!!  HA HA.

She must have played hard because she was one tired monkey when Emily picked her up and she took a power nap on the way home.

Here's hoping day 2 goes as smoothly!!
