I have the worst cold I’ve had in a long time, certainly the worst since I became pregnant. My nose is running like a faucet and I feel like a giant, inflamed nose. Before that, I’d just gotten over food poisoning from (presumably) bad sashimi Saturday night. My MIL is visiting, which is fine, but it’s just a little hard to be sick and entertain visitors, and I feel it’s inevitable she’ll become sick, which really sucks for her. (I’m hoping that I’ve caught the cold I and B already had and that we’re not heading for more sleep deprivation.) Then, I left my purse at Safeway today. I just got finished cancelling my five credit and debit cards (including one for work), and then got a call that it had been found. It would have been a lot worse if it hadn’t been found, of course, but *sigh* I wish they’d had it when I drove back to Safeway.
I is still cute. I love it when I put her down on her back when she’s wearing tights and she waves her fat little legs in the air. It’s just so adorable.
I absolutely loves books these days. They are without a doubt her favorite toys. A couple of months ago, she was obsessed with Pat the Bunny, and she kind of went through a “touch and feel” book phase. Then, while we were on vacation, we picked up O is for Orca on a whim, and she has been obsessed with that ever since. Sometimes she has spent literally and hour just looking through the pages. I can’t really understand why. It seems like a normal book to me, though it’s illustrated with bright photos rather than drawings, so perhaps that’s why she likes it. She also has been quite fond of Where Giants Hide lately. It’s a big picture book with brightly colored pages.
The above picture amuses me. General chaos! Family pictures become a lot harder when you have a baby and a dog!
Isla has begun to understand many words. She’s yet to say any words clearly and repeatedly, but it’s been amazing me lately how much she understands. The first one we noticed that she clearly understood was “sockadock” – B’s baby version of “sock.” Since then I’ve noticed her understanding lots of things, from dog to O is for Orca. I really need to make a list for posterity.
