This is week 2 out of 15 in recording your history over at Mommy's Piggy TALES. This week we are recording our preschool/kindergarten years.
Today I want to share with you some pictures and memories when I was little so one day you'll know about my growing up years.
I got a new puppy and she sure is cute! I was afraid of the puppy at first so I used to run and jump on my mom and dad when she was coming. Now I am getting used to the dog and I can run with her and play together. My puppy's name is Nuggett and I can even say it.
Christmas has always been my favorite holiday growing up. Not because of all of the presents, but because we were always together as a family. I remember Grandma decorating the house and Grandpa Merritt going out to get a huge Christmas tree and bringing it inside the house. I remember all of the Christmas cards going up on the fireplace or on the refrigerator for us to look at. I'm guessing this was the year E.T. came out! :)
On August 4, 1981, I became a big sister and your Aunt Kelli was born. Below was written in my baby book
I got a new sister on August 4th. I can't wait until my mom and dad bring her home. Mom tells me she looks alot like me! I talk to my mom every night on the phone and tell her I love her and miss her. I know it's going to be different when mom gets home especially because I was getting used to her big belly! My little sister is SO small. I love to go up to her and kiss her on the cheek. Mom tells me that I am not jealous at all and that she is really proud of me. I like to change my babies diapers just like mom changes my sister's diapers.
Pyloric Stenosis and threw up everywhere! She had the operation and was all better, which I know Grandpa and Grandma were relieved!
On May 14th 1984, your Uncle Brad was born and I finally had a younger brother! Before he was born, we moved from the Holly Hills neighborhood to Fenton, which is where Grandpa and Grandma still live. We moved so I could start school in a good school district and it was right before Brad was born. It was fun having a brother and a sister to play with all the time, even though we sometimes argued and didn't get along, I wouldn't change it for anything.
Below is a picture of my first day of school. I remember loving my backpack! It was red with a stoplight on the front. I thought I was so cool heading off to school while your Aunt Kelli and Uncle Brad had to stay at home with Great Grandma. My kindergarten teacher was Mrs. Loyal.
