End of school year fun!

Preschool moving up ceremony

     Lyla had her moving up ceremony from the 3 year old program at her preschool. She had a fabulous year in Pre-K. She made lots of friends and she learned a lot of great things. Here are pics from her moving up ceremony.

Petting Zoo

     After the moving up ceremony we went to the Long Island Game Farm with Lyla's Bestie "Jo Jo".
The kids had a ball and were not afraid of feeding the animals. Here are some pics from the petting zoo.

Dance Recitals

    The BEST part of the end of the year are the dance recitals. This year Emma and Lyla both were involved in dance. Emma took Hip Hop and Lyla took Ballet and Tap. The girls did a great job dancing their hearts out on stage. eddie and I were so proud of them! Here are pics from their recital.

Lyla's Bestie Joseph came over before her recital to wish her luck and give her yellow roses!

Our Visit to Dupont and other family happenings!

DuPont Children's Hospital

     We had Lyla's doctor appointments in February. She visited Dr. Bober (geneticist), Dr. Mackenzie (orthopedic surgeon) and Dr. Schmidt (ENT).  All three doctors said that Lyla looked great and was doing well. We were thrilled to hear the news.

Lyla's Stats:

Height: 2 feet 6 inches (just under the mean)
Weight: 25 lbs. (just below the mean)
Head Circumference: 21 1/2 inches (at the mean)

Here are pics from our visit to Dupont Children's Hospital in Delaware:
