I thought that I would be writing to you about Lily's new food group today. She spent three days mainly eating Cheerios. I was starting to get a little worried. But, this morning, she ate her Baba's scrambled eggs and part of a biscuit. So, all is well in our little picky eater's world as far as the food goes.
She kept us up for three hours again last night. So, this morning, Baba left the two of us in bed, and he went to church by himself. I told him when he got home that I would rather have extra sleep as a present than flowers any day. We have had to put some steriod cream on Lily's excema that she got while we were on vacation. We have only used it three times, and that is probably the extent of our usage. Bless her heart- it really messed up her little system of sleeping the past two nights. However, her face is almost cleared up and back to normal. We battled excema a little in China, but this was the worst time yet.
On one last note, does anyone know how long it is supposed to take a toddler to use a sippy cup? All Lily wants to do is play with it. She knows how to get water out of it, which she will show us with total exasperation. It is like she is saying, "Okay- watch. Now, can I play with this cool toy?" Then, she wants to turn it upside down. I also think it is funny that every sippy cup says it doesn't leak. Apparently, Lily is a genius. She has figured out how to make every one of them leak- whether it is by pushing the spout down on her highchair or turning it up and shaking it until the water leaks out of the cup itself, which is never really attached quite right to the lid.
Oh, well. I really love all of these stages and watching as she changes every day. Here is a cute picture of her playing in her playhouse. She loves her playroom. I am afraid she might get tired of it, but she squeals with delight every time she sees it again as though it is a long-lost friend.
