First Piano Recital Ever

Sweetie, this was when you were 5 and your first recital ever. We love our piano teacher! First time ever of everything is just so precious. Even though now you can play so much more proficiently, for me, this first recital piece is to be treasured forever.



Summer Fun T-Shirts


I’ll drop a quick note tonight and go to bed, as we are all going to get up early for school/work tomorrow.  I was categorizing all our photos and came across three precious ones! They were pictures of summer fun T-shirts that you drew with fabric markers. One from when you were 4 years old, the other, more recent that you drew as a 6 year old. I am amazed how much you’ve grown in terms of fine motor skills and artistic expression.

You did this first one when you were 4.

Love, love, love all your work! So proud of you!



Little Artist in the Making

Sweets — As you are sleeping so tight and it’s already deep into the night, I’m still gathering all pictures of your doodles and drawings. I love all your drawings and see how you progress throughout the years. It’s so much fun and such a privilege being able to witness your growth and look forward to more to come. I love the fact that you just plunge in and did it and that you’ve kept drawing, everything that you see, feel, think of and imagine. Here’s only some of them, from when you were one year old up to now. I am so proud of you, not just of your drawings, but of the passion and joy that you put into each and every picture. Keep drawing, keep the sketches going and the color flying, my ever-growing little artist! Love, mommy 💗

Lego Fan

Sweetie, you are a big fan of Lego!  Your first set was a birthday mega block from a friend when you were 2. Seeing that you liked it, I bought you more. Since then you were hooked. From very early on, you learned to read the picture instructions. You could do it all by yourself after a few guided practices! You also like to create your own free-style. What you have made always amazes me with such great imagination. I love watching you make these. I love playing with you.  — Love, Mommy

Recap: Preschool Graduation

Dear Daughter,

I have finally found the time to start (for real start) posting on this blog, OUR blog. It feels like I have years of the amazing you to recap before I could get to the present YOU. So, bear with me, sweetie. I’ll get there, maybe sooner than I thought. And let me start with last year, your Preschool Graduation.

It was an amazing 3 years at your preschool. You’ve grown so much and been enjoying your life at preschool. It was and still is such a proud moment for you and for all of us, hearing your name announced, watching you march on stage in full attire, and listening to you and your friends sing. It was such a sweet moment when you and your teachers hugged as you present them the flowers. We took a lot of pictures. And here are some of them. We were excited about your new adventure, too.

Remember these? And from here on, after a fun summer, you started your kindergarten year! Love you, proud of you, always!
