Meet My Little Miss

Hi - my name is Paloma. I am a very sweet, silly, sassy little 4 year old. There are some days that my momma thinks I'm going on 14 - but rest assured, I'm only 4. I am very excited to be turning 5 though. When I turn 5, my whole life will be different. Did you know I'm a New Years Baby? I am. I make sure to tell everybody who doesn't know. People sometimes ask me when my birthday is. I just simply say that I'm a New Years baby. It is much easier to remember than saying Dec. 31.
I am in my second year at preschool and learning so much these days. I'm lucky enough to once again be in the same class as my best friend Jessie. I have a wonderful teacher who is very patient with me. I can write my name, count to 100 (although sometimes I tell my mom I don't know how because it takes a lot longer to count to 100 than it does to count to 10.) I am starting to read and really working on improving my coloring. In fact, just the other day I told my sister that I color much better than her. She told me that was the truth and I wasn't lying.
I just finished another round of swimming lessons where I was the only girl and swam so much better than those other boys. I even passed into the next group. Today I can say that I'm an official 'Ray.' I'd like to stop swimming now and take up ballet. I'm dying to dance like a princess but my mommy just can't seem to get her act together and get me started. Speaking of princesses - did you know that I'm going to visit Princess Cate someday. I keep asking if we can go to the castle and my mommy keeps telling me 'someday when I get a job.' I take that to mean that it might be awhile yet. I really like Princess Cate, I dress like her and try to do my hair like her. I even wore high heels to the gym the other day so I could practice walking like a princess. I can't wait until I can be a princess.
These days I spend my time between school and home. I miss my sister dearly - who went off to 1st grade this year. But it isn't all bad - in fact, I told my friend the other day that 'it isn't all bad having sissy in school.' I get to spend all day with mommy. We have hung out and had donut day (a lot), spend some time together at Roaring Springs, worked out together, taken several bike rides, did crafts, and colored a whole lot of pictures. I have to admit that I kind of like having mommy to myself. I like it so much that I get very moody and naughty when we pick up Mattea. Only being honest!
So I hope I have given you a glimpse into my life. I am a fun little girl - sometimes a little bossy - but fun, nonetheless. I love to snuggle and get hugs so if you want to be my friend then "text me." Cause I'm getting pretty good at texting. Yep, even learned to call my daddy's business associates the other day. Pretty stunning for a 4 year old huh?

And the baby is launched....

The day finally came. After waiting 3 weeks after her sister started school, Paloma's big day finally came.
She was so excited to be starting preschool this year. She missed her friends, she missed learning, and most of all she missed not being like her big sister. After watching Mattea head off to school each morning, Paloma wanted the very same thing.

Paloma picked out her entire outfit and even did her own hair that morning. My sweet baby is growing up - snuffle. But the independence is kind of nice (I will admit.)
Daddy was there for the big even on Sept 7th (which happened to also be our 9th wedding anniversary - Love you babe~)

She practically ran into her classroom to sit down begin her big day. She was gracious enough to pose for a couple of pictures and then it was time for me to leave - because she was obviously done with her dad and I. She has an amazing teacher and a godly staff who will watch over her and teach her God's word. We are grateful and look forward to another amazing year at the Children's Academy.
Love you Honey!!!
