I love looking back at the "first day" pictures from past years. Our girl just keeps getting more and more amazing every single day. Each year brings more magic, and I know this year is going to bring more than I can possibly imagine.
I cannot wait to tell you how amazing these two weeks have been. And it's only been two weeks!
|December 2010 - Sam's first day of her Early Intervention Center-Based program at UCLA (oh how we miss that place!); she'd just turned 2|
|October 2011 - Sam's first day of preschool - She'd just turned three (and little did we know when I took this picture that just hours later, I'd be in labor with Mia!)|
|August 2012 - Sam's second year of preschool - Not quite four. And the biggest smile yet! (She was mostly excited about her snazzy new dress -- this is EXACTLY around the time that Sammie started having some real opinions on fashion!)|
|September 9, 2013 - Sam's first day at her brand new school, in a pre-k class for 4 and 5 year olds. So very proud of her new princess lunch box from Gigi.|
That evening, we celebrated just as we have every year (and just as my mom did for me each first day of school for my academic career) -- with a small present and a mini-party (cupcakes this year!).
It is a tradition that I LOVE and one that I am so thankful that my mom did for me.
Here's to an amazing new year for my big girl.
I can't wait to watch your year unfold, Sammie B.
