Caroline is really enjoying getting to pick out her oufits. I would say that I let her do that about 75% of the time now. Some of them go together really well, but I may add a little something or take off a little something. Some are quite crazy!!! These are some of my favorites!!
I love this dress on her!!
It had been over 100 degrees for so long, then we finally had a day in the 90's. I guess she was worried her legs may get cold.
This may have to be my favorite!! Headed to the grocery store here.
I originally meant to post this in March, but here it is months later. It was a LONG season for a 4 year old. It lasted March - June. At first she wasn't too thrilled about playing, but she ended up liking it. Just look at some of her practice outfits. Caroline was quite the character during games. Some of the mothers said that they loved the games because they couldn't wait to see what she would do next. She loved playing in the dirt when she was in the outfield. She was excellent at chasing the ball. In fact, several times, she would be playing 3rd base and end up in right field after chasing a ball that was hit nowhere near her. She got tackled once by a giant of a girl. (We all wanted to see her birth certificate!!) Here is a recap of her season.
HER GLOVE. I THINK SHE'S QUITE PROUD OF IT!!
PRACTICING AT HOME *(Notice: the practice outfits)
She told me she was actually going outside to practice like this.
At least she changed shoes!!
Right after this picture was taken, I told her to run to home harder than she ever had before. She ran really fast and then it seemed that her upper body got ahead of her feet as she came close to home plate. The poor thing crashed. I was afraid she would be done and after just the first scrimmage. Like I said, she wasn't too crazy about playing at first.
UNIFORMS ARE IN!!!
Can you get any cuter????
First time to say good game. So cute!!!! I'm pretty sure I was tearing up at this.
Pretty darn precious!!
Aunt Kaci got to watch her play!!
The closer in she played, the better she payed attention. In fact, she would run for the ball before it was even hit. Watch below. She walked off mad when she didn't catch it.
When she played short stop, she was right in between the two fastest girls on the team who were a couple of years older. She discovered that her only chance to catch a ball would be to run toward the ball before it was ever hit. It worked a couple of times.
Our little Carter is no longer a baby. He is now without Nuk. Close to a week ago, I couldn't find it at bedtime. Rather than look for it, I took him to bed and patted him on the back until he fell asleep. (it didn't take long) That occurred for a couple of nights. Then a couple of nights ago, he fell asleep on his own without it. I guess it's officially gone. I'm just glad I'm not a mess over this like I was with Caroline's ordeal. I WAS A MESS HERE GOODBYE TO THE NUK CEREMONY HERE
He hasn't asked for it once. What a big boy he is. Ok. Now I'm about to cry.
I GUESS YOU COULD SAY THAT NUKS HAVE BEEN A LARGE PART OF OUR LIVES THE PAST 4 1/2 YEARS.
I attended the Junior Service League Provisional Tea last night. We had to get up and introduce ourselves. I mentioned Caroline and Carter's names during my introduction. After probably 40 introductions, one of the members came up to me and asked if I was Caroline's mom. She said that she feels like she knows Caroline because her niece talks about Caroline all of the time. This is a little girl that is very sweet and is a year older than Caroline. I can't believe I'm known now because of my 4 year old daughter. That Caroline sure makes an impact!!!
