Having been admittedly impressed by Jacob and his alphabet sounds yesterday, as well as a little embarrassed that we haven’t worked with Milly on that, I bribed Milly into doing her alphabet sounds and singing the ABC song this morning. She ended up hanging out in the office all morning, which was kind of nice. I prefer working in here to working in the kitchen, which is what I usually do while she’s awake.
Amanda was going to take Milly out to pick out a birthday present for Cousin Addie today (which we would just give to her on Thanksgiving). Milly decided on her own that she was going to get her a “yellow” Barbie. Unfortunately, Amanda and Milly hadn’t gotten too far when Milly threw up, so they turned around and came back. Amanda and I tag teamed cleaning Milly and stripping and cleaning the car seat. It was pretty smelly. Milly seemed fine though; not sick or anything.
Later in the day Milly was drawing next to me. I went upstairs for something, maybe to trim my face, and Milly followed me up (Amanda hadn’t latched the baby gate; I’d stepped over it thinking it was secure), sat down next to me in the bathroom and continued drawing. I just thought it was sweet.
Cyra watched Milly again tonight, this time for a small group leaders meeting. After we got home we watched out Thursday night shows.
