One Tough Cookie

Alexis woke up this morning with her eyes all crusty and puffy. We sent her to school anyway, in hopes that it was allergies (she had the same symptoms while we were in Florida and it was definately allergies). It wasn't. We got the call at 10:30 to pick her up. She was as happy as a lark when I got there and stayed all perky the rest of the afternoon. We're talking REAL happy go lucky. As in she was babbling to herself nonstop and laughing at everything in sight. To be honest, I was almost wondering why daycare sent her home. So imagine my surprise when I take her to the peditrician and he says she has an ear infection, eye infection (pink eye), and nasal infection. He prescribed her some stong antibiotics to fight the battle. Meanwhile, if her eyes weren't all watery, I would have had no indication that she even needed to go to the peditricians. Clearly the girl has got some kick butt tolerance for pain.

Our tough girl learned a new sign this weekend and won't quit with it. She has mastered "cookie" and thinks it should work like her other food signs. When she signs cheese, she gets cheese. When she signs grapes, the girl gets grapes. Cookie, on the other hand, just can't always be fulfilled. She's getting frustrated because she knows we understand and she knows the cookies are in the cabinet. So now she just stands in the kitchen, pointing at the cabinet and signing cookie like a mad woman. When we don't listen, she busts out the fit. So either we're going to have to start feeding her way more cookies than she needs, or she's going to learn that signing cookie gets you a whole lot of nothing.

Lastly, somebody got a new house this weekend. It needed to be Mommy and Daddy, but our new house would cost a lot more than the Kinnley Bear's. The purpose of the house was to give her somewhere to go play out on the deck, and the mission was a smashing success. See for yourself (Note: this is sick Alexis playing with a toy house that she's had for a few days already. Obviously, she's a real big fan).

P.S. She's drooling like a toothless fool because she has two more teeth popping through. I do believe she will have all her teeth before she's 18 months old.
