So today after church G fell asleep in the car then woke up when we got home. This means I don't get a nap and I am a big napper. So instead we have attempted to watch "Cinnarello" and other videos. I attempted to pick up and clean some since I am hosting a play date on Sat.
I am a little sleepy and this will set the tone for the rest of the week. I will be very tired.
G is sipping on her sippy cup and holding her blanket. She calls it a "bantie". She loves her blanket and if it gets lost or torn up we will be in so much trouble.
This weekend she discovered a purple Carebear that she actually received at Christmas from a cousin. She even called it a carebear. Apparently a child in her daycare has one. Well we had a doctor visit yesterday morning due to a rash on her bum and a possible hernia. She packed a "bag" with her purple Carebear and a blue one I had since college/highschool and her monkey to go to the doctor.
On the way though she started telling me she didn't want to go to the doctor. So we stopped by the coffee shop first and then went anyway. Even her bears and monkey couldn't keep her calm in the office. She didn't get a shot or anything. Her dr. gave us samples of a stronger cortisone cream and said he didn't think the spot was a hernia. He didn't know what it was but didn't think it was a hernia. G cried/screamed the whole examination. She was only calm to say bye-bye to the dr.
She is so afraid that they will stick her finger that she can't even go in the exam room without falling apart. Poor baby, I felt terrible for her and the dr.
On other news since her first dr appt to this summer she has gained a whole whopping 7 lbs and grew about 3-4 ins. Cool huh? She is about 27 lbs and 34 inches tall. Her hair is getting a little crazy but still not thick enough nor long enough to keep in a bow out of her face.
Here are some photos of the visit to the zoo last weekend. She loves going to the zoo and so do I. She likes the pandas and actually calls pandas - "zooas" because we would go to the zoo when we first came home and I would say, "lets go to the zoo" and then see the pandas first.
It is really nice to have a very up dated zoo with very realistic exhibits of natural (or as natural as you can get in a zoo) habitat.
