Mommy went to a hat party for one of Grandma’s friends who is having chemo. This is me, modeling the hat that I gave. It’s very shiny.
Daddy was gone most of the day working on someone’s driveway. I missed him. Mommy is okay, but she doesn’t play as much. All she seemed to want to do today was bake bread and wash dishes. She also tried to read to me, but I wasn’t interested in books today.
I go to the doctor tomorrow. Daddy says I’m going to get more shots. I don’t like shots. They hurt. But at least after tomorrow Mommy and Daddy will be able to answer questions about how big I am. They never seem to know.
Mommy keeps taking me outside and trying to show me flowers in the yard. But I don’t really get what all the excitement is about. I just think it is too bright and I try to keep my eyes shut. It’s better when she takes me out in my stroller, because then the sun doesn’t get in my eyes as much.
I’m going to go to bed now. Goodnight.
The first of the daffodils.
…even if I don’t.
We just received a package from the dc area. An anonymous package. A package with lots of gift cards in it.
It really made our day. 🙂 It’s awesome to know there are people out there who care that much.
It is very, very, very much appreciated! Thank you so much!!!
While I was taking pictures of Autumn, she interupted and untied her shoes.
Autumn’s not actually eating any solid foods yet, but occasionally I’ll let her taste something. I’ve been trying to avoid the sweet foods…but the ones that she has decided she likes are kinda weird. She didn’t like sweet potatoes, but mashed potatoes were okay…as long as she just licked them and didn’t get them in her mouth. If they got in her mouth she spit them out and made nasty faces.
I can be a mean mom–I decided to see how Autumn would react to dill pickles, assuming she would be in shock and make funny faces…
She tasted it…made a funny face…and then grabbed my hand and stuck the pickle back in her mouth. And she wouldn’t let me take it away after that. She sat there and slurped on it until we had to leave the restaurant. She had the same reaction to green olives.
So she likes formula and pickled vegetables…hmmm….
This is Autumn’s usual “people” smile. It’s hard to catch it on camera, though, because she always realizes that the camera is out and plays shy and only gives me little grins instead. This is the one that everyone who looks at her or talks to her in person gets all the time now.
Autumn thinks her toes are completely fascinating. She pulls them up to her chin, but can’t quite get them into her mouth where she wants them. 🙂
