Essie's new Glasses!

Essie had her checkup at Children's to check her eyesight, etc for her Duane's syndrome today. I didn't get to go since it's still early to leave my little ones so Trav got to tackle it on my own. Trav said they said everything looked great and she definitely has Duane's syndrom (duh). Travis did send me a few pics of her today...

Here she is wearing 3D goggles...there were 3D pictures on the book of flies and she kept trying to grab at them.

And here she is in her new fancy schmancy sunglasses since they dilated her eyes. She was so proud of them and even wore them into school this afternoon!

The whole ordeal wore her plum out...

Essie's big day

Thursday night the tummy bug that was floating around Essie's school hit her hard. She was really not feeling well.
So sadly we cancelled our trip to Jonesboro for sweet Adalyn's birthday party. My parents were missing Essie badly so they came down to see her. They ended up taking her to my aunt Janet's house to visit so Travis and I could do some consigment shopping. E got to to jump on the trampoline for the first time! She was amazing!

We found some really cute finds at consignment too! I was tickled at our small loot!

Then tonight our little stinker found nailpolish, opened it and painted her own nails. Then asked me to paint her toes blue. I did then she proceeded to crawl across the toilet lid and leave blue streaks! Ahhh! Such a mess.

And we've had some exciting news in our house...Essie has started pee-peeing on the potty! We are so proud of her!

The Great Sassy Fairy Failure

Essie hasn't been taking her "sassy" at school all week and she's not shown much interest in it at home (except bedtime) so we thought yesterday we would do the "sassy fairy".  Last night we had Essie put all her sassies into a bag...

and take them outside to leave for the fairy.

She  did okay...fussed some but fell asleep decently. At 1 am she awoke in what looked like night terrors. She was flailing, kicking, screaming, flopping, hitting us. She was uncosolable. She wasn't letting us hold her or soothe her. I thought maybe letting her see her "big girl gift" the fairy left her would do the trick. So at one am we walked into the living room and onto the porch to find this...princess carriage and Belle doll. Her face was precious she was so excited. She played for a little bit and we allowed her to go back to bed with Belle.

She was MISERABLE. She flopped, flipped, moaned, cried, fussed. She complained about her tag in her gown, her bootie hurt, her hand hurt, her ear hurt, her hair hurt. She was just plain miserable.  She didn't ask for her sassy but it was evident she was having a very hard time coping without it. She was unable to rest and settle down. Around 2 am I gave in and gave it to her. Immediately she was still and fell right asleep.

I cannot watch my baby girl suffer and she is not ready to give up her comfort item yet. That's okay...we tried. She tried really hard too. She does pretty much only get it at night and only keeps it in her mouth until she falls asleep so we are okay with letting her have it for now.

Holy smokes? I've not updated in almost TWO WEEKS? Life has been CRAZY at best. First of all...here are some pics of Essie's luau. She is loving "school" and never cries.

And here are some random pics from my cell phone:

Essie and her daddy eating sushi.

And some pics of my classroom on "Meet and Greet" night.

Today is my 2nd day of school...I am EXHAUSTED. Worn plum out. Kindergarten is a blast but it is very challenging. The first day was an eye opener.

We've also been looking at houses...we got word from our realtor that we could possibly expect an offer this week so we really need to decide on a house. We looked at 6 houses tonight (after my full day of kindergarten...yes I'm crazy) and have probably looked at nearly 40 all together. It's so hard. One of the houses we looked at today had a round turret (tower looking) front and Essie was convinced it was "Tangled home". She kept yelling "Rapunzel let down your haaaaair!". She was also afraid "Ever" (mother gothel) was inside and she wasn't so sure she wanted to go in! :)

Life in Conway so far

My camera is broken so I've not taken pictues in so long. Here are some from my phone (hence the terrible quality).
Life in Conway has been busy so far. We are constantly running/doing/working. I'm trying to get my classroom ready and learn the town! Essie is adjusting extremely well to daycare and is really enjoying it. She has a luau there Friday afternoon that I am just so excited about! I am making cupcakes and a veggie tray to take!

Essie loves our "Big House". She calls the living room her "bedroom" since her toys are in there. She plays all night long. We've tried having her wear her Abby slippers to soften her jumps for the sanity of our downstairs neighbors.

 Monday was my last day off sinceI'm in training everyday until school starts. My classroom is coming along..I'm not quite done. School starts in a week and a half! Yikes!

It's been so terribly HOT here...miserable!

I had a meeting today and I got my nametag, signed up for insurance, etc. So I'm officially a Conway teacher!
