Our little swashbuckler has had a very busy last few days, which resulted in a few cross moments today.
After the making the rounds of the grandparents, and the neighborhood, we decorated the cupcakes that Mommy baked during her naptime.
Kerry is still a little under the weather. She's hanging on to a little runny nose and she gets a little "out of sorts" more easily than normal. I took her back to the pediatrician and he said her ears still had a little fluid in them she she's on another round of antibiotics, a different one this time. I blame the changing weather. And we've had several fires nearby due the to recent drought so it's been smoky the last 2 days...not helping, I'm sure.
"Dat's a WHOPPER!"...she says this when she sees something she perceives as big.
"(insert name here)'s so funny!"
"Whatcha doin'? Lookin 'a' somefin?" (looking for something)...she said this to me from the top of the stairs after I ran down to the basement doing laundry. In Kerry speak, 'a' (pronounced like uh) can be used in place of the words to, for, at, and the.
"I see moon. I see CRESCENT moon!" She said this last night while in the car, and the moon was, in fact, a crescent shape.
And she's taken to calling me her "best friend" this week. I love it! But she also said the same thing to her soup (yeah, this girl loves herself some soup), so I'm not sure how much I should read into it. Then again, she only said it to her soup once, and has said it to me, like, 4 times so....I win! =)
See the fingers in the mouth? That was the only clue at all that anything was amiss. She never once even touched her ears or complained about them at all. I took her to the doctor because for several days she'd been saying her legs hurt . Nothing wrong with her legs at all, but we were surprised to find out that her sinuses looked "raw" and her left ear was infected. Poor baby = (. She'd had her fingers in her mouth alot recently so we thought maybe she was getting the last of the two year molars. Apparently we thought wrong...sorry sweetie. Thankfully, she loves the Am*xil she's on and asks for her "meh-sinn" several times a day so giving it to her is easy. This is really only the second time she's been "sick" in the 15 months she's been home. Wow, has it really been that long?!
Kerry has been singing up a storm lately. She sings at home all of the time, she'll happily perform a song or to for friends and relatives, and earlier this week, she decided to sing...very loudly...for all of our fellow shoppers at Kr*gers. Thankfully most were amused and just smiled or even applauded. Have I mentioned that I'm the kind of person who would rather just "blend in to the woodwork" in a crowd. Yeah, that's impossible with Kerry in tow, ha ha. She just attracts attention, even when she's not trying to. Anyway, her repertoire of songs now includes:
And we often get a medley of some or all of them at once. =)
She's wearing her "cuh-pake jammies" in keeping with one of her current obsessions. I think I mentioned them in a previous post. I just wish the clip didn't cut of the end of her song.
