Friday we took Selena to her Pediatrician for her 3 year old check up. Everything went just fine, as was expected. She again said that Selena is developing just fine and is doing things that a 5 year old would be doing. Her skills are far beyond what they would require to start Kindergarten here. I never really gave it any thought as to what she needs to know for Kindergarten and what she already knows until her Pediatrician brought it up.

Here are some pictures of Selena as we were getting ready to leave to go to the Dr. She was trying to put Papa’s coat and cap on.

Today we finished her Birthday celebration with some of our adult friends, there was Nana Jean, her granddaughter Kelly, a good friend of ours Kelly and us.

We had actually snuck this cake in the house without Selena even knowing it. So we had one surprised little girl when I brought the cake out of the kitchen. She had absolutely no idea we were going to have another cake. I think she has been way over spoiled now, and we still have Christmas to get through.

Then this evening our town had their annual Festival of Lights Parade. The Parade route goes right by our house, so Selena could watch it out the front window. She was just all ooh and ahh over all the Christmas lights, floats, Santa, and the bands.

It was a busy weekend and especially a busy day here for us. It was so much fun though watching all the excitement in Selena. I am so looking forward to Christmas now to see her eyes and hear her Shrieks on Christmas Morning.

  1. What a precious little girl!! I love her in Papa's coat - too cute!!

  2. It's awesome that Selena is doing so great and doctor acknowledged it. It sounds like Selena has fantastic December.

  3. Can't wait to see pictures from the Festival of Lights Parade. I'm a sucker for parades.

  4. That is wonderful that the paediatrician gave Selena such a glowing report.

    A surprise birthday cake is such a lovely idea. That would have made Selena's day. You have certainly made Selena's birthday so very special and made her day a memorable one where she would have felt so special.

    How lucky are you and your family to have the Festival of Lights pass by right outside your house.

    Our "formal" learning will be on hold too now until the New year.

    Savvy would have loved the clown decorations you bought for the cupcakes. How fun to have a craft activity at the party.

    I really enjoyed reading through your informative review of your first Tot School materials. I recently got out our Tupperware shape sorter for Blakie. That toddler tote looks fantastic.

  5. It is fun watching all their excitement isn't it? It's one of my favorite things as a parent.

    I like Selena's cake.

    I'm happy for you that you had such a fun weekend too.
