It honestly feels like just yesterday I was writing this post, detailing how Davis's first day of preschool went. I had just found out about the miscarriage only 1 week before he started school, so I was certainly not "into" the first day of school like I normally would have been. I remember telling myself that morning that I really needed to get pictures of him before I dropped him off, despite my burning desire to do nothing but hide in bed, and the picture taking process proved to be a huge disaster in the end. I remember lots of yelling and crying (from both of us), and then cursing myself for getting his first day started off on such a horrible note.
So yesterday, on his last day of the school year, I had a game plan to make the morning go a lot more smoothly. And it worked! I strategically had Wade get him dressed as soon as he woke up, and then after he had given Davis breakfast but before he left for work, he was on "make Davis smile or at least stand still" duty while I snapped a few pics. Are any of them frame-worthy? Nope. But Davis didn't cry and I didn't yell, so, VICTORY!
For the sake of comparison, here's a picture from the first day versus a picture from the last day:
Such a big guy now, right? (And let's ignore his swollen Dumbo ear in the bottom picture... Mama forgot the bug spray when we played outside on Wednesday afternoon and a mosquito must have attacked his ear.) Anyway, it was a great school year for him, and those Thursday morning breaks have been a HUGE help to me. Now, if we can just figure out how to survive for the next 3 months...
