Update: Olivia’s new milestone

Olivia, who informed me this morning that she was NOT A BABY, started preschool today. She is joining Ava at the new Montessori school, and she seems pretty darn excited about it. She did ask if we were going to Diane’s later today, but when I said no, she didn’t protest. I packed up a spare lovie and her little pink teddy bear with her nap-time bedding, just in case she wasn’t feeling quite so grown up come afternoon.

Ava is such a fabulous big sister, and it’s a relief knowing she’ll be keeping an eye on the little one during the day.

Ava even came with us to drop Olivia off in her new classroom.

Olivia is wearing a jumper my mom made—I thought it was perfect for the first day of school. I’ll post an update tonight!

UPDATE: When I picked up Olivia tonight, she came running at me yelling, “Mama, Mama, Mama!” Then she said, “I am so glad you picked me up.” Apparently, she’s not aware of the center’s rather strict policies in that regard.

Her teacher reported that Olivia had a great day, never once asking for me. (My response: “Um…thanks—that’s good, right?”) She didn’t nap, but otherwise, she seemed to do quite well. Here’s hoping tomorrow goes as smoothly.

    What a big girl! She looks so proud and grown up. And Ava looks proud, too! I hope she is having a great day.

    Yes, Olivia does look very grown up! I can’t wait to hear all about her first day! Ava is such a good sister!

    I’m so proud of you, Olivia! Keep up the great work!
    The jumper is adorable.

    I’m glad her preschool is going well, too! Colin is still excited about it today (he’s only 2x per week), and will probably not want to leave again. Olivia does look very grown-up 🙂
