Random Kid Updates

I've really not blogged much in the last few weeks and since K's birth it's been mostly about her, which is understandable. I do want to update on all the kids though because you know mommy guilt is eating away at me:)

I'll start with Jessica.  She's finishing up 4th grade, and has 2 more days to go and is done for the year.  Last week they had their award ceremony and she got several awards.  3 certificates for being on the A honor roll (3 of the 9 weeks) and 1 for A/B honor roll plus a good citizen award and math Olympiads.  I can't believe she's going into 5th grade next year! She also got asked to participate in the schools safety patrol next year.  Basically she helps with the car line in the morning and afternoons, opening doors etc.  We'll see how long she actually likes doing this ;) A couple of her friends are doing it to, so she'll prob do it as long as they do.

Hailey finished up with preschool last week and I think is already missing it, so am I.  She really enjoyed going and seeing her friends and loved her teacher. She has come along way in learning things this year and her attitude has improved as well.  Though some days you can't tell, but she's a typical 5 yr old! Hailey also starts Kindergarten this fall.  How did this happen? I swear it feels like she was just born but now I have another little one at home. She is very excited though to go to her big sisters school and start Kindergarten.

We have only 12 more days until K's UAB appointment and I am feeling anxious already.  I will probably be a nervous wreck the morning of the appointment, so it's probably a good thing we're going down the night before instead of trying to drive at the butt crack of dawn for an 8:30 appointment. I need to find a hotel and contact my SIL about keeping the big girls overnight for us that Sunday night before the appt. This will make it much easier on us to talk to the doctor, find out info and ask any questions we have.

Overall Kaitlyn is doing well at home, she seems pretty laid back and seems to only cry when hungry or needs changing. I am sure that will change in time but for now we're enjoying it. I just wish she would sleep a little better at night, she does fairly well during the day, so I hope in time she'll start the night time sleep better too.

It seems right now the big girls are OK with Kaitlyn being here, no major jealousy issues have come out...yet.  I think Jess will be fine most likely as she's done this before, but Hailey on the other hand I am not so sure about. Fingers crossed that since she has someone to play with it'll help with that and not want/need my constant attention this summer.

I can't believe our 5 yr olds are going to kindergarten, either!

Glad to hear that K is doing well!!

Oh I think August will arrive in no time, esp if our summer is busy with dr appts.

Tracy, I am in denial LOL it's hard enough to believe they are 5!
