If you know me in real life you know that I hate seafood of any kind. I can eat the occassional fish stick (because lets face it, those don't taste like fish. I question whether there is even real fish in them lol) and I can eat some fast food fish like from mcdonalds or whatever (because once again...it's tastes like greasy batter, not fish. I like greasy batter ;-) But any sort of *real* fish, or god forbid something really gross like s hrimp or lobster or crab (well, except crag ragoons....but once again, how much crab are in those things lol) ....anything else makes me gag and is just plain yucky! Salmon? Puke. Cod? Barf.
.....and fish that Lee caught himself, fresh out of the water? Double yuck.
But guess what? Lee was in seventh heaven last night because apparently Daddy's girls LOVE fish. Good for them. I'll take pictures while I eat a hot dog! hehe
|Daddy's Girls--they got his looks *and* his taste buds apparently :-)|
Today we hung out with Grandma and Sawyer and Harper for a little bit. Every time Sawyer leaves my mom's he "packs a bag" to take with him. Usually fruit chews and a juice box. Well Raya has caught on and decided that she needs to do this too. However the girl hates juice. SHe only drinks water and white milk. But she wants to like juice like Sawyer so bad. Today was the 3rd time she's insisted on taking a juice box. I always tell her "but Raya, you don't like juice" and she says "I just try Mama" lol. So today, once again, she tried her little heart out ...she wanted to like it so bad. She drank about half and then said "Mama, I not like juice anymore. I want water please." haha. You get an A for effort Raya!
And guess what? Poor Brielle had her ear recheck today (she had an ear infection 2 weeks ago and I asked them to recheck to make sure the meds worked)....well today she *still* has a double ear infection! They said it's not as bad now, but she needs another round of meds...a different kind to try this time. I had a hunch that the infection wasn't gone because she finished the meds on Monday and immediately after started sleeping horrible again. Hopefully this next round works!
She felt better though when her new shoes from Grandma arrived today. My mom offered to buy Brielle some "real" shoes now that she's kinda walking (she'll go across a whole room now! But still likes to crawl too). Brielle is wearing size 3, almost 4 right now, and all of Raya's size 4 shoes were summer sandals! Go figure. So all of our winter shoes were size 5 or bigger, which are huge on Brielle. So now thanks to Grandma she is the proud new owner of some cute pink and white Pumas!
Thanks Grandma! She tested them out this afternoon....they stay on her feet really well! (Seriously, does anyone else have a hard time finding good baby shoes? My mom had been looking forever, we tried a bunch on, I bought a pair of Sketchers that wouldn't stay on her feet so I have to take them back, then my mom ordered some Stride Rites that are supposed to be really good for new walkers, but they fit so weird they wouldn't even go on Brielle's feet! Finally we have a winner with these Pumas :-)
That's all I got for today! Oh, I guess I'll share a funny story that I posted on Facebook yesterday. So Raya's new thing is she needs to go to the bathroom in "privacy". She got that from Sawyer haha. So anyways, she always tells me "Big girls need privacy"....but yet *I* continue to pee with an audience every single day. So I asked her "Why doesn't Mama get privacy?" and she said "Only big girls get privacy Mama. You're not a big girl....you're just tall."
Good to know. LOL.
