Trick or Treating fun!!

Fun, yet not. We trick or treated in Princeton last night and Lauren dressed as the World's Cutest Ballerina. She refused to walk through piles of leaves, but wasn't overly shy when "strangers" gave her candy. She seemed to enjoy the walk at night when we usually only walk during the day and it was warm enough, no coat was needed.
Today was a different story. This morning, she dropped a cup on her toe and broke her toe nail and skinned her toe. This afternoon, all was well, until she tripped and fell and caught herself with her face. Her nose, lip and forehead are scraped and she was mad and really hurt. Daddy to the rescue when she fell, and then momma had to Neosporin her face and sing You Are My Sunshine over and over and over. Whatever it takes. Poor little face.

My little ladybug

For Halloween last year, Lauren was a cell phone. Cute! Mother made the costume down to the glow-in-the-dark paint around the numbers and the hat complete with antennae! This year, it's ladybug. Last year, candy meant nothing. This year, candy means everything. She knows what a Snickers is. She sees chocolate at 100 yards and comes a runnin'! Hope she isn't afraid of all of the strangers at the door when we shout trick or treat!
I'll keep you posted!!

More than words

My sweet little girl has started to say, "Good girl". She repeats it. She says it when she does what she is asked. And she is a good girl.
Rolling the ball is also a new past time for us. She sits on the floor and yells until one of us sits with her. Then the ball rolling starts. That is, until the ball rolls down the hallway and then we have to go with her to retrieve it. The hall can be a dark, scary place.
What a good girl!

Now with more head banging

Well, our sickness is over. We are officially eating and drinking again. Wet diapers abound. Good news for all involved I say.
We are starting rapidly to head for the Terrible Two's. Mood swings. Screaming fits. Loving and hugging and hitting and head banging. And all within the span of 5 minutes.
From what I understand, the fun has just begun...

Sick-O still

We have a dr.'s appointment tomorrow. Lots of sleeping today. BUT, when she's awake, she's great! Running and playing and laughing. Beating the dog. Lying on the cat. Normal stuff. But lots of sleep. Maybe ears? Maybe teeth? Maybe nothing?
I'll keep you posted!

Last night Lauren had her first fever. Red cheeks and all. Sad.
She was lathargic this morning, took an early nap and then seemed better. Tonight though, she started looking sick around her eyes. So sad.
Get better soon sweet beautiful! Momma loves you!!
