First day of school: Alla.

Hard to believe my little girl is in second grade. She woke at six a.m. (I remember most school days last year where I was waking her at 8:45.) I didn't even see her in jammies, because when I got up at seven, she already had her first day of school outfit on.

I love this smile, I love her excitedness. I hope she finds nothing can dampen her spirit.

She looks way too big in those pictures. I love her nail polish and the whole outfit. Have fun in second grade, Alla!

Wow, SO grown up! I am suddenly having a flashback to the first time I saw a picture of Alla, on Elizabeth's refrigerator... "who is the cute baby in the baby announcement?"

Beautiful smile, and wow do I love her taste in footwear. :)

She looks adorable & so big.

Gracie was up the same way on her first day of second grade last week! And, because you probably don't want to hear this over and over I'll whisper it: she looks SO GROWN UP, mama!!!

She is so beautiful!!! I can't get over how big she's getting. I still remember attending her 3rd birthday party...Dane was in his bucket. Oh, it's bittersweet :-)
