We finally took Josie camping somewhere other than our own backyard. She had an absolute ball and it was pretty great!

Finally a 97%

Josie had her 5 year check up today and was 46 3/4″ tall and 56 lbs. 97 percentile for both. She is such a big girl and I am so proud to call her my daughter!

She should have started on Wednesday but because she was an early enrollment, they supposedly had to wait for the count to come in before she would be allowed to go. This was all fine and dandy… Read more »

The Big Day!

So today is the big number 5! She woke up so happy and ready to start her day. We let her open her presents before we left the house and then we took her to breakfast wherever she wanted to go. We were thinking she would want “The Red Barn” (Bob Evans) but NO, she… Read more »
