So the end of Labor Day is drawing near and I am feeling bittersweet about this week. I am anxious and stoked for Liv’s first day of school but I also feel sad my little girl is growing up. It’s really unfair how you start off on a 24/7 relationship with your new baby, then gradually they grow and gain their independence. You actually miss doing everything for them. I am so blown away by how much personality Liv has. I am aghast with pride when I hear her make complete sentences, sing the A-B-C song or go to the bathroom unassisted. She can also operate an ipad like a pro! It’s a huge step for me and I can’t believe it’s here but I’m excited for her first day of school. Every morning she says to us, “Mommy, I go to school today!” It will be difficult for me to not cry.

Our friend Keith had his annual pool party on Saturday and we had an excellent time. I love his pool, it’s saltwater and heated so we spend hours in there. Going to their house makes me want a pool BAD!
So we had to do some back to school shopping on Sunday. I really wanted to get Olivia this lunch bag.
Of course it’s sold out so I thought we should try Little Tokyo village since that’s where I bought her Totoro plush. Turned out that place is out of business so we ended up at the Hello Kitty store. I am a major HK fan but I didn’t want to go the typically pink and girlie route with Liv. I was super tempted to get her Little Twin Stars but the light color would get filthy and I wanted a matching lunch bag and backpack. Here’s our winner:
|Keroppi is classic and *hopefully* noone else will have it at her school.|
I bought some super cute earrings for me and for Liv *although she isn’t getting her ears pierced until her 3rd birthday* but I couldn’t resist these adorable guys. I got Hello Kitty red bows and she got apples.
I made a donation and added my wish to this wishing tree. I hope it comes true!!
We had lunch at Tenno sushi, and someone chose to not use chopsticks. We shopped for some new clothes and I am ordering these shoes
|adidas ‘Gazelle 2’ Sneaker, they are on backorder until October, Boo!|
|She’s already outgrown her low top converse so this time I wanted something other than black, love teal!|
|If I could, I’d buy her saltwater sandals in every color but Nordstrom is sold out of her size in beige, so we’re getting red.|
