Fancy Shoes, Multiple Uses

Hannah calls these her "fancy shoes." Which obviously, they are. She clomps around the house in them constantly. The other day I found her wearing them outside stomping on the sidewalk. She explained to me that not only were they her fancy shoes, but they were also her worm killer shoes. It's where fashion and function meet.

Let's Pretend

It seems that nearly every sentence Hannah says starts with these two words. She's very specific about how we pretend. I must do and say certain things, most of which I forget immediately. Usually I'm not needed much at all, except to agree, as in this video. I'm not really sure what is happening here, she is a cheerleader/dancer/jumproper (I think.)

Circus Day at Preschool

She was the most festive clown at preschool. Unfortunately later that day she had a meltdown at Barnes & Noble and I had to carry her out while everyone witnessed the tears of a clown. I used lipstick on her face, 18 hour long lasting lipstick that lasted a lot longer than 18 hours. I believe it was 3 days before it was completely gone!

Happy 4th Birthday, Hannah!

Born 2 months early, Hannah Marie's diaper was almost as big as she was!
Still bald as a cue ball, we celebrated her 1st birthday with friends and family!
By the time her 2nd birthday came around, Hannah was potty trained and talking nonstop!
Hannah started preschool when she was 3 and loved every minute of Ms. Laura's class!

And now, my sweet girl is 4 years old! Everyone says that it flies by, but it truly is amazing how quickly she has grown up! Once so tiny, in the NICU at Vanderbilt Hospital for 6 weeks, now in the 96th percentile for height! I have so much fun with her every day!
Do you see that look? That is me that she is looking at like that! Because I am her Mama, I know that at that exact moment she was feeling unsure of what to do, uncomfortable with all the attention and excited about blowing out the candles!
