The Newest Ladybug.

On June 3rd, Ellie started a new daycare.  The Ladybug room at the Lexington Hearing and Speech Center.  It's so close to our house that we walk!!  Here she is all ready to meet new people and make new friends.  She was also pretty pumped to see her neighborhood friend Annie Noble, and says her name - first AND last - all the time now :-)

 (yes, that's a horse sticker on her leg, sometimes ya just gotta go with it)

Ellie was equally excited about her new lunch box.  It has a horse and her name on it, and each morning (MWF), she specifically requests to hold her "new pink lunch box." Side note:  she has had a hair trim since these pictures were taken, so her mane is a little more under control.

Ellie's transition has been smooth as silk.  No tears, eating and napping every day, and coming home talking about the slides on the playground, playing in the gym, and her new favorite toy: purple baby.

And lest we forget all the fun she had in Jr. Tots, here is her class picture, with the beloved Miss Julia.

Yay for a smooth transition! So... is it bad that I'm playing "spot the biter" in my head when I look at her class picture? My money is on green dress in the front row with the schmutz on her nose.

Jen, you're totally right!! That's the girl who bit her the most, though toward the end of Ellie's time there, that girl had stopped biting and Ellie had gotten bitten by another child (or two).

Ellie is getting so BIG! I'm so jealous that you can walk to day care, although next year the girls will be going to a day care that's a five minute drive from our house - hooray! The sticker cracks me up, too. Not a day goes by that I don't step on one, and I hate the feeling of a sticker on the bottom of my foot, even when I'm wearing SOCKS....but someday I'll be sad that they aren't strewn all over the house. Hope you're feeling well!
