Phoebe is growing....

I know that I've become absolutely terrible with this blog...I try, I really do, but I have a gazillion things going on and the blog gets neglected.
Phoebe is now 18 weeks old and I'm estimating that she must be up to 45 pounds. She has been growing five pounds a week and she was 36 pounds at 16 weeks. She's a great puppy aside from eating every Barbie Doll's hand, foot, and hair....oh, and shoes....yeah, right, and toilet paper..... but she's doing very well with housetraining and learns very quickly. She started school last week, so I'm looking forward to working with her a lot. It sucks because not only to I miss Amelia's birthday (she's 3 on Tuesday) for a work trip this week, which is horrible, but because I'm going to miss her class...she's going to be much heavier than me and I need to be able to control her :)
Libby is still loving Kindergarten and Amelia thinks it's way awesome that she's the big girl at daycare :)

First day of kindergarten!!!!

I can't believe it happened, but Libby started school yesterday. Kindergarten already!!!!

As predicted I cried a bit when I dropped her off... but she ran right in and joined her class. When I went back to pick her up, however, she cried. She didn't want to leave. Great sign that she loves it but a little heartbreaking for me, too :) She's such a big girl!!

A few photos of her with her daycare providers (who we consider to be family now) on her last day there Tuesday and some of her before we left for school yesterday morning.

Note that Amelia wanted to get into one with her big sister (it's a big deal for her, too, since now she's the 'big girl' at daycare)...just like Libby she is her own stylist and I love it. The Cookie Monster shirt with green floral skirt and tall brown suede boots on the wrong feet... that's a look that not many can pull off. I think she can totally work it, though :)

OH and still no sign of Mr BAG (Big Ass Gnome) which has us all pretty down.
