We made potato soup yesterday (Nani did most of the work, although I can take credit for adding the milk and stirring until it was smooth) and tonight when we were having the left over’s Sadie realized that she loves potato soup! She doesn’t like it as much when it’s plain, but she relishes taking a little pinch of cheddar cheese and carefully placing it on top of each and every spoonful of soup. It doesn’t count if the cheese is sprinkled over all of the soup in her bowl in advance. She inspects each and every bite that she takes and then carefully adds a few more pieces of cheese, even if it’s already coated.
Tomorrow we have to go to Redding for Sadie’s 15 month round of shots. It’s not something I am looking forward to! Sadie associates the doctor’s office with shots and ear infections (more specifically with the doctor looking in her ear to see if she has an ear infection, which Sadie thinks is the scariest thing in the entire world). Odds are, even with her little music player, she’s going to be a basket case as soon as we get into the exam room.
After spending almost half a year as a 2T, Sadie is starting to outgrow some of her 2T outfits and has been wearing some of her 3T dresses. She’s also a size 7 in shoes now and seems to be going through a growth spurt. She’s been gobbling down everything in sight. Her current favorite food is cottage cheese and her favorite drink (which trumps her favorite food) is milk. Right now she’s watching her Your Baby Can Read DVD to settle in for the night and in a few minutes it’ll be time for bed. Goodnight!
