Time // 12:27 p.m.
Place // In her high chair. It’s lunch time!
Eating // Right now it’s “gourmet” Kraft Dinner. I’ve chopped up a fresh tomato and tossed it in for extra flavour. Her favourite foods right now are blueberries, goldfish, and lasagne.
Drinking // She absolutely loves smoothies but doesn’t have them very often. It’s milk 95% of the time!
Watching // Sesame Street is her absolute favourite. She will bring me the remotes for the TV and ask, “Elmo?” And when I ask her if she wants to watch, she’ll happily yell, “ELMO!” and run to the couch. It’s adorable.
Reading // Our favourite is “Mr. Brown Can Moo, Can You?” Isla loves reading along and making the sounds Mr. Brown can do. (“Pop pop pop” is her favourite and is what she says when she wants to read that book.)
Learning // Animal sounds. Her favourite is to meow like a cat, but she’s getting pretty good at recognizing an animal and then making the noise it makes. We’re slowly working on our counting too. I’m still at a loss on how to teach her to properly go down the stairs though; she just wants to walk down them like we do, but needs a handrail to hold onto. (Ours isn’t low enough for her to grab.) We’ll get there.
Wanting // Everything within her reach on the countertops, which means we really have to make sure everything is pushed back from the edge of the counter at least 3″ if we don’t want Isla to touch it. She has already swiped scissors, squished raw meat, and grabbed my cellphone off the counter. Oops. Luckily, I catch her quickly enough so no damage was caused.
Enjoying // The recent sunny weather. Yesterday we took the wagon she got for Christmas out for its maiden voyage around the neighbourhood and she had a blast. She really loved going up and down the curbs and laughed over every bump.
Needing // Extra cuddles the past few days. She’s been running a fever on and off and I think her eye teeth that are coming in are to blame. Tylenol helps, but I just feel bad for her.
Anticipating // Summer! We can’t wait to play out in the sun this year.
