Midweek exhaustion

21 Jul

It has been a really busy over in our house- and it is only Wednesday!It started with a busy Sunday afternoon. We went to a first birthday party at our friends Shadi and Adam’s house whose son Cyrus turned one. I failed to take picutres but it was about 60 people, a ton of Persian food and Miss H enjoying every minute and everybody. She made quick friends with a boy named Eli and they proceeded to chase each other around, shreiking and giggling at each other (this must be toddler flirting). Also, she was passed around among Shadi’s moms friends and did not seem to mind the grandmom’s playing with her hair and squeezing her cheeks. A little to our shock she ate almost any food put in front of her- she ate curry chicken, eggplant, a pea mixture that was baked, rice with berries, lamb, onion tartes and many other exotic foods and cheeses. I should have taken pictures.

Besides the party- our week stayed busy with work- and Kerry had a MRI on Monday to see what is going on with his back. New bulging disk is the culprit. On the plus side- old bulging disk is better. More to come on that when we have more info.

Miss H just runs in busy mode. We are going to stop buying toys and just buy new kitchenware.

We have blocked off our kitchen with a gate (because it was easier than putting all those latch things on the doors) but it is super upsetting for Miss H when we are in the kitchen or the fact that the gate keeps her out of the kitchen. She has made several attempts to climb the gate and has tried to break us down with  whining but we are trying to stay strong. Trying being the key word. It is amazing how all the whining stops when we lift her over the gate.

She even managed to keep the colander on her head as she tried to hijack the camera from me.

In other skills this week- while she has mastered getting on the furniture, the dismount was not always graceful. She has learned the sliding technique and there are fewer crash landings.

I really enjoyed my class last Saturday but realized I have homework! I need to find several possible pictures for the photo screen printing we will start on Saturday and seperate the colors out. I need to somehow squeeze that into this busy week.

And, Miss H is 16 month tomorrow!

    So sorry to hear about Kerry’s new bulging disc. That does not sound fun at all. Love the colander hat!
