Leeza and I saw another "live" show today....this time is was Curious George Live. We have a few Curious George books and Leeza seems to love (or maybe it's her mommy who REALLY loves it) all the live shows with singing and dancing. I used to take Sean to all these shows, and I am so happy to have someone else to take. I really enjoy them and Leeza really seems to like them too. She just HAPPENED to have a Curious George outfit with matching bows, so, we kinda HAD to go because you can't waste an outfit like that!! She looked really cute, if you ask me. She of course got tons of compliments and lots of "ooh look at that lil girls outfit". :) Yes, I have a sickness but dressing Leeza is SO MUCH FUN! :)
I sprung for VIP tickets....we sat 3 rows from the stage. We also got a photo opp with the monkey himself. It was TOTALLY WORTH IT! We were so close we could see the dancers sweat beads. :) My favorite costume was the dancing spaghetti and meatballs...TOTALLY CUTE!!! Curious George was mad talented, he even danced on top of a big beach ball. The dancers did aeriel cartwheels too. It was so entertaining!!
Despite Leeza being a PITA before we left for the show (a fight over which shoes to wear), once we arrived she had a blast. She sat on my lap for much of the show, clapping and enthralled with the music. She stood up and got her dance on for a bit too. :)
Since I sprung for the pricey seats, we avoided buying any food or any CG paraphenilia. We brought our own popcorn and juice!
Leeza was sad when it was over and wanted to "watch it again". We were going to go to Chic Fil A for lunch, but she fell asleep on the way home, and is still taking a nap. YAY!

I took Leeza to the doc today because she woke up yesterday from her nap with a fever. She still has a fever of 102, but no ear infection or anything (which was my concern due to all her swimming) so she probably just has a summer virus.
They weighed and measured her though and she has grown grown grown!
My lil peanut is now 30 1/4 pounds and 37 1/8 inches tall! She has moved up to the 55% percentile in weight and stayed at 60th in height. She is lookin good!! :)
She is in her second week at camp (but she had to miss water day today cuz of her fever...boo) and she LOVES IT! She is having a blast! It's just 4 kids from her preschool class and they get all kinds of attention and time to play. She really has a great time.
She is doing GREAT at swimming....and I love how Emilie really works with her to have correct form. We are doing well, enjoying our very hot and humid summer. :)
We had a blast at crazy, chaotic Kazapoolza in Milwaukee this year. I still know we did not meet everyone there, but we did meet a lot of new friends and caught up with a lot of old ones. Leeza had a TOTAL BLAST playing with her "friends from Kazakhstan". Sean had a great time too, and of course, everyone loved him. He defintely has a gift with the kiddo's!!
I am so grateful to be part of this Kaz community. I always get a renewed sense of "Kaz pride" being around all these gorgeous children and their parents. I got teary eyed watching the room full of kids..knowing what each of us went thru to get them home. I know Leeza doesn't get it now, but I hope when she's older she will understand that she is part of a very special thing.
