Easter Egg Hunt!

Posted by Heather at Friday, April 18, 2014 0 comments
 "My friends, Jackson and Macy had their annual Easter Egg Hunt, today!"

 "We searched for plastic eggs! The pink ones are my favorite!"

"I got to show off my pretty Party Dress by the Cottage Mama, that Mommy sewed for me. 
Tres chic!"

"Best part? I got to hang out with my friends (like Connor ;) and have fun!
Hoppy Easter!"

One Katy-sized Bubble, Coming Right Up!

I have had a day..... a long day (and night).....

I have already been to Urgent Care, this morning, and called Katy's pediatrician more times than I care to admit. We've been through a pulled elbow (or, as the Urgent Care doctor called it, "nursemaids elbow") and a cartwheel-like-trapeze-swinging tumble from our friends' sky-high clubhouse landing. If I hadn't just been through the whole elbow/Urgent Care thing, this morning, I don't think I would have reacted so hysterically when Katy fell off the clubhouse ladder.

Suffice it to say that I screamed.... Loudly....!

This all occurred before two pm, mind you....

Katy's okay, though. Tough little kid. My nerves, on the other hand....

Sterile, plastic bubble, please! No more falls, breaks, sprains or dislocations. No more scary moments when your heart literally stops and jumps out of your chest.

No ma'am. I am done for the day.

The Muppet Effect

Posted by Heather at Thursday, April 17, 2014 0 comments
Katy and I were recently jamming out to tunes on the radio when the 80's classic, "We Built This City" started playing. Immediately, Katy exclaimed, "The Muppets!" ("We Built This City" was featured when the whole Muppet gang is cleaning up the old studio in "The Muppets Movie"). She then proceeds to sing right along (knowing more words than I do, to the song). Like her father, pop culture references somehow always relate  back to the Muppets (and not the ACTUAL, true point of reference).

So her Daddy's daughter.... (and fellow Muppet lover, too!)!!

Sentence of the Day- "Up There..."

Yesterday was Katy's last day of Preschool before Easter/Spring break. Katy was talking to her teacher from last year, Ms. Amber. Ms. Amber asked Katy what she was doing for Easter. Pointing her finger upwards, she replied, "We're going up there- not heaven- just New Jersey, to visit my Nanny and Poppy."

Dentist Visit

Posted by Heather at Thursday, April 10, 2014 0 comments

"My future's so bright that I need shades....!"

"Open Wide!"

Having a peek inside her mouth and operating some of the dental tools.

Katy had her first "big girl" visit to the dentist today!!

She's come along with us to our appointments, up until this point. Sometimes, she would observe our exams. Sometimes, she would even let the hygienist "count" her teeth and brush them. However, this time, she actually had all the dental tools used on her (i.e. our insurance was billed, specifically for her! ;-).

I've got to admit, I was really worried about this one. In the past, she's been less than thrilled to even attempt to sit in the exam chair by herself. There have been times where she's been afraid of whatever tools the hygienist was using. I was afraid that a) Katy would refuse to sit in the chair and throw a tantrum, b) Katy would clamp her mouth shut and not let the dentist look inside, c) All of the above (and then some!).

You know what, though? Katy was AWESOME!!! She did SOOOOOO well this afternoon! Katy hopped right into the chair when it was her turn. She obligingly put on the "sunglasses" to protect her eyes from the exam light and opened her mouth willingly. She was pleasant and funny and interested in what was going on. She cracked a joke with the dentist! She even tattled on me by telling the hygienist that I had brushed my teeth right before our appointment.

After everything was done, Katy got to pick the color of her new toothbrush (pink, of course!) and pick a prize from the treasure box (a costume ring, of course!). She chatted her way out of the office and kept telling us how the dental tools "tickled." She liked "helping" the hygienist (Katy was allowed to operate the sucking machine thingy) when it was my turn for my exam.

No fights, no fussing, no complaining! Best of all, no cavities!
