For the past week and a half, my family has been ill. Not all at once, but one at a time. First Bella, then Danny, then Declan, then Bella again… and just when I thought I was going to bypass the flu, it hit me. Thankfully, I have a super duper husband who stayed home and helped me all but one day. He washed dishes, cooked, changed diapers, cleaned, did laundry… He did everything that I would do in a day and then some!
Even when feeling unwell, Bella is funny.
“Do you like to eat yellow envelopes?” she asked at supper one evening.
“Yellow envelopes?” Danny and I queried.
“Yes, yellow envelopes.”
After a few go-arounds, she clarified: “They’re kinda like watermelons.”
“Ooooh! Yellow cantaloupes!”
“Yes. Yellow cantaloupes!” She acted like she didn’t say it wrong for the past ten times. 🙂
We also have new artwork showing up. Her fine motor skills have improved drastically, and she’s constantly drawing chicken houses, spiders, and monkeys.
