I have attempted to challenge myself (and my fellow mommy friends) to try and do something new with their toddler everyday. It doesn't take much to get bored and tired of the same old same old day in and day out. Yesterday I introduced her to a new set of cars. She loved them. We played with some balloons today and I got out some pots and pans and they occupied Caroline for about 45 minutes! We rolled cars on cookie sheets, banged the pots as loud as we could, and then she started a very serious endeavour of putting the cars in the pot, taking them out, putting them in, taking them out- over and over. She loves doing this and I love watching her. After we did this for awhile, she decided she needed to be in the pot as well. She knew it was silly and laughed most of the time but was dead set on sitting in it....and then decided the cars needed to join her....and the stuffed animals around needed in the pot too. It was fun. I'm sure that as soon as she is up from her nap this afternoon we will play with it some more. Thank heavens for easily entertained toddlers!Other random news...
If you notice her precious little face has red spots on it it is because she has a little infection going on around her mouth- I thought it was just cold weather + drool...but after a doctors visit yesterday we came home with an antibiotic. Poor thing. It doesn't bother her, but it looks awful!
Her hair may look a little greased up...she is now styling it with her fingers during mealtime- pizza sauce, chicken grease, a little of this, a little of that. Love it. She always smells nice and appetizing. :)
She is in love with her blankie now. It must accompany her out of the crib and all throughout the house...even at bath time. She wanted it to take a bath with her, but she finally settled for having it sit on the toilet. :)
Caroline has blossomed into a full fledged tantrum thrower! :) I knew it would come...and the day is here. Pray for me!!! I am not going to give in and pacify her every whim, so I pick my battles wisely. She likes to get her way, and does not like to be told no...kind of like everyone else on the planet I guess. She is learning, but I must say I think her red hair gives her fits a little bit of flare!
She loves snack...and wants a snack all day long. No surprise to anyone that has known her very long! :)Apple juice is her favorite and she will drink her whole cup in one gulp practically...turning it all the way upside down and getting every ounce out. Hilarious...but makes for a lot more diaper changes.
No surprise here...but she has huge feet!! Wonder where that comes from? She is wearing a size 5 now...some 4's, but I am afraid they are squeezing her little toes.
She weighed 24 lb. 10n oz yesterday at the doctor. I guess she doesn't go back until about 15 or 18 months...not sure which one.
I go to the doctor tomorrow for my 35 week appointment. I will not be reporting how much I weigh afterwards. :) I will let you know if anything fun comes out of it though.
Brad is finishing up his plastics rotation and will start general surgery on Monday. Only 3 weeks of it though bc he is taking the last week of Feb. for vacation and the 1st week of March will be paternity leave!! We can't wait!
It's supposed to snow tomorrow. We'll see.
She likes to feed her animals and baby dolls her own snack- especially giving them juice and milk from her cup. It's precious.
Now if this blog wasn't interesting, I'm just not sure what would entertain you! :) Just kidding.
