They seem harmless enough now... But the "Gap-Toothed Daddy Crushers" have a reputation of ganging up on their opponents.
Well, several days have past and all is well. Alice absolutely loves school (2.5 hours a day, 2 days a week). It gives her a chance to play with more kids her own age learn some new skills (drawing cutting, listening, waiting etc.) and learn some Quebecois culture.
School bus is here!! Not so serious looking anymore. Alice tends to put on a very serious face when in a new situation (carnival rides, new friends, new adventures etc.).
Estelle really likes daycare. We have learnt that she gets bored easily and daycare is full of new kids, toys foods. She is adapting very well and spending alot of time cruising along the walls to get around.
How was your day????

Estelle recently posed for her 10 month photo-shoot. Usually we like to save these and post a bunch together, but this one we had to share. We gave her the precious nighttime bunny for a few moments (outta my way Butternut Bear) and she instinctively assumed her bedtime position. That is - right hand holding bunny pressed to her face, and left hand tucked behind her lower back. She does this for every nap and bedtime. It is a gorgeous sight, and almost makes me want to pick her up again, but then she would be really, really MAD!
We have always said that we think Alice is brilliant. But now it seems her little sister wants intellectual recognition as well. We pulled out an old friend this week, the barn animal fridge magnets, and Estelle is already trying to put the animals in. And getting close to it.
Just don't expect us to be modest when it comes to our girls!

Our baby girl turned 3 today. Mum and Dad did not spend too much time reminiscing about that difficult (yet wonderful) day in 2006, but instead we marvelled at how grown up Alice is, how kind, thoughtful, inquisitive, clever, funny, and how very pre-school she is.
We love you very much Alice. You bring joy into our lives and love into our hearts.
You also bring ambition into Estelle's life! (cause she wants what you have, wants to be where you are, and wants to eat what you eat!)
p.s. not shown here, thanks to Gran and Grandad for driving all the way back from Stratford to be with us for Alice's birthday supper. Her menu selection: hot dogs with mashed potatoes and cauliflower!
