Another First!
Here is Sera's first official school picture. Actually, it's her first professional photographer picture, too. Jim gets such great shots that we've never actually taken her to a professional. We tried to schedule one once, but it never worked out. I love how they've gotten her to cross her arms like that.

I should scan in her class photo. It's hilarious. Only one little boy is smiling. The rest are just looking towards the camera. I forget how small she is because when she's running around with the other children, it isn't as obvious. It is in this picture though. Sera's sitting in the middle of the bench. The other children dwarf her, and her feet dangle much further from the floor.

We also had our first parent-teacher conference yesterday with Jim and I on the parent side of the table. Overall, the report is glowing. She's doing very well. The teacher gave us one paper that she had saved from the other day. She was just amazed and suggested we frame it. She had asked Sera to draw a circle in the middle of the paper. She said that Sera held the marker over the paper and made the motion as if she was picturing the circle. She then put the marker down and drew an almost perfect circle. The teacher then drew a horizontal and vertical line and Sera did an excellent job copying those as well. I credit this to all the hours she spends drawing with daddy. Jim is always drawing figures for her, and he always begins with a circle. She's been able to identify circles for a long time, but this is the best one she's ever drawn

We do have some things to work on, too. She's not very good at picking up her toys. I think I've spoiled her too much by picking up after she goes to bed. And she is very verbal, but there are still some times when she needs to use her words more. If someone is poking or annoying her, she whines. They're trying to get her to say stop instead. She'll also do that when she wants something sometimes. We've actually been working on those two things at home, too. It's good to see that we're all on the same page.

Love the picture! I'm with your sis (um, I am remembering right, right?) I don't think even one of my school pictures ever looked good. Sera's first one is amazing. But then, of course it is! :)

So, the whine continues? The whine is alive and well in our household, but then we have zero words yet. But still, some days ...

Cheers, thanks for sharing her photo with us. Oh, am I am SO impressed you are doing NaBloPoMo. I was tempted, then smacked myself in the head and quickly got over that idea, lol!
