Cooking, Father's Day and Long Chats with BSG...June 18-24, 2011

I was a busy girl this week, what with continuing to try to grow my tooth and entertaining my parents :)  I'm becoming a regular frequenter of my Mommy's kitchen and trying to help "cook".  No one tells you how fun all these bowls and spoons and pots and pans are, but man...I can make some music on them!

I had a really nice weekend and got to spend time with friends and family.  My friend, Madison, turned 2 on Sunday and we got to go back to the park and play on the swingset.  I do love the park!

Sunday was also Father's Day and we went to my Uncle Allan's house to celebrate with our whole Spivey family out here.  We had a lot of fun and I got to play with all my cousins and their kids and spend the evening learning all about how to cook large volumes of meat from my Uncle Allan (he made 1lb. hamburgers...I couldn't eat a whole one! :))  My Mommy forgot the camera, however, so we didn't get any really good pictures.

I also met with Ms. Gay Lloyd and Ms. Colleen at my therapy center this week.  Ms. Gay Lloyd said I was doing really well with keeping my tongue in my mouth when eating.  Unfortunately, when I'm tired, and playing, I don't do such a good job with it.  So, we'll continue exercises to get my tongue to be a little less lax.  As you can see below, one of the good things I do now is try to feel my newfound tooth with my tongue.  I'm constantly playing with it...it feels very strange. Mommy says it's a "razor sharp fang".  I'm starting to use it to try to mash my food...it feels good to grind food on it.  BUT...mostly I just feel it with my tongue...ALLLLL the time!  (Good exercise though!)

Note the tongue action on my right front tooth-in-progress...
We actually had SUNSHINE this week on several days and Mommy took advantage of that sun to get to dress me in some summer clothes that I've been unable to wear up until now.  I mean, I like the sun and all, but probably not as much as my Mom.  It gets in my eyes, then my eyes water...but Mommy swears that someday I'm going to love it as much as her, especially after one of our VERY long Seattle water-filled-winters!
This is apparently called "playing in the sun"...I do love my Jesse dog's ball!
In other news, I will soon be transitioning out of Ms. Audrey's class into Mrs. Linda's class.  Mommy and Daddy met with Mrs. Linda for the first time to talk all about me and what I can do and what I can't eat (dairy, mandarin oranges, and recently applesauce ... all big-urp foods!)  They had a nice time and think Mrs. Linda is very nice, but they sure are going to miss Ms. Audrey.  After they met with Mrs. Linda, I got to go over to her classroom and go outside with the "big toddlers" and play a couple of times and that was fun. The big toddlers have a nifty little playground that I can climb on and, well, I do love to climb, so that part of it is ok with me.  I hope Ms. Audrey will come visit me once I move!!

As I'm a big girl now, I've been having some heart-to-heart talks with my Baby Sister, who we'll call "BSG" for now.  I do like to stand on her head while Mommy rocks me at night, but I also like to pat on her when she kicks me when I'm climbing on Mommy.  Mommy calls this "abuse from both sides", but I think it's great fun!

Discussing the future with BSG...
I'm excited for BSG to come visit.  Daddy keeps telling me it's not just a visit, but we'll see!!!!
Kissing BSG...
Well, that's all the news that's fit to print.  Next week, lots going on, including A PLANE RIDE to New York to visit family and see Mommy's cousin get married.  I can't wait! :)  Have a good week!
