First of all, thank you to my sister-in-law for helping me out with this. I know that it is basic, but I am learning daily and will add more stuff as the days go by. Please email me with suggestions on how I can make this cool.

So, for her birthday I decided to have a polka-dot party for her. A few of her friends were invited and it was small and fun. The girls painted their nails with polka-dots on them and played BINGO. From the looks of the pics, they had a good time. I recommend polka-dot parties for your girls. It's easy to do, and doesn't require a lot.

This is Lucia's first newspaper that she drew today. She explained every detail to me but I forgot. She did walk around with her pen and a pad of paper looking for stories around the house today. It was the cutest thing. Sometime she plays "Buhtective" (detective).
I had an interview last week and the girls were at the babysitter, who has a boy that is Lucia's age. They were in preschool last year so Lucia and the boy (Ryan) knew each other.
I come back from my interview and see the kids at the table drawing pictures (as per usual my kids draw all the time whenever they have paper and some utensil for marking). As I am rounding up the kids to leave, Lucia has this drawing in her hand and is following Ryan around the house. Finally, she gets his attention and gives him the picture. Here is the exchange:
Lucia: "I drew this picture for you" in a soft, sweet voice.
Ryan: (looks at the picture and looks at Lucia) "Thanks", in a monotone voice.
Ryan then turns around holding the photo like it's nothing and as he is walking away, Lucia clasping her hands towards her chest, leans into Ryan as he is walking away and voices softly, "I love you". Ryan of course did not hear what she said or did and is ignoring her.
I am in SHOCK! 5 years old and she is saying the 3 words that I waited to say until I was probably 10 or 11! Needless to say it was very cute and I had to write it down.
