Stomach Flu - 1, Mom and Dad - 0

So I've been on Peas for awhile now and things are going pretty well.  Mom and dad however didn't think the peas sat so well with their tummies.  Okay so I'm not really blaming the peas, but on Sunday night mom and dad went into the ring with the stomach flu bug and the flu beat them up pretty good.  They were mostly recovered by Monday, so mom managed to drag me into day care and then head home to sleep all day.  Thank goodness for school or I'm pretty sure I'd have been bored to tears playing by myself all day.  Monday night I got to spend a couple hours with Miss Michele who was sweet enough to come over and give mom and dad the last of the R&R they needed.  Mom was too lazy to remember to take pics, but here's a good old one of me and Michele (photo at right).

Tuesday was back to normal with mom and dad working full days.  We were all supposed to head up to Liberty to visit the Long cousins who are in town from DC, but Mimi and Max came down with the same bug and were laid up for the day.  I'd like to put in a shout out for them to get well soon!  I can't wait to see you Thursday.

Great Grandma Dard's hair is like cotton candy!
 Wednesday (12/28) was pretty good since I had a 1/2 day of school.  Mom picked me up early and took me out to spend the afternoon with BobBob since he'll be leaving for Thailand on Thursday.  He'll be gone a whole month to go see Grandma Ta (mom shows me pics so I remember what she looks like since she's been gone for awhile) and her family.  Mom promised to take me over there next year so I too can enjoy the 85 degree weather, swimming pool bigger than our house, all the yummy food (although what can be yummier than peas?) and lots of kisses and hugs from my relatives.
Wednesday night I went over to Gpa Dido's house to see my cousins and Aunt Jen and to finally meet my Uncle Chris for the first time.  Good times were had by all and I was showered with gifts of more clothes, which mom and dad greatly appreciated.  Audrey and Ingid played with me a little, but they quickly tired of my lack of ability to walk and the vast amount of drool dripping down my chin and turned their attentions to their new Christmas toys.  At 7pm I was ready to head home.  I quickly said my goodbyes to Grandpa BobBob who made an appearance before his morning flight.  I got home in time to have a bath and warm milk and hit the hay.  Mom and Dad omitted cereal for the night which was a dumb move.  I awoke promptly at 4:30am wanting something to fill my growing belly.  Dad gave me a 2 oz bottle, turned on my mobile, and I lulled myself back to sleep until 7am. 

Note to self- remind mom and dad to feed me cereal and peas before I go to bed.










My SPÖKA

On Thursday I had another Christmas with Mimi again!!!  At this rate I'll be spoiled by the age of 3.  We opened presents and I got to play with the Cousins again.  Jen and Chris even got me this awesome musical table.  I'll have pics as soon as mom and dad get motivated to put batteries in it.  I got some more snazzy clothes and a Spoka (an awesome night light from Ikea).  Well really it's for mom, but I've already claimed it for myself by drooling all over it.
















Friday was New Year's Eve and I went back up to Mimi's for the celebration.  It kind of seemed like a non event, but maybe that's because I slept through it.  I got to fly solo with dad because Mom went to a different party at Brett and Shelly's house.  I was sad to miss the usual crew (the Roue's, Davenport's, Steffen's, and Nass') but was excited to hear the news from mom that soon I'll have another play friend since Shelly is expecting #2.  Anyway, dad brought me home in time for mom to give me a NYE kiss. 

I started 1/1/11 with a taste of green beens and some agua.  I'm loving this new food stuff and am fully embracing my veggies.  I'll be keeping you updated with new foods I'm trying.  Today I got to have a little sip of water as well.


Goodbye 2010, hello new year!  For all those I didn't see, best wishes for a fun and prosperous 2011.
