Time for week 2!
This was our last week of winter break from school and things should get much busier and more interesting after this. I feel like all we did this week was hang around the house in our pj's!
Here's the shots from the week:
8/365: Bubble Bath
She loves taking bubble baths. What 6 year old doesn't? This is her happy place. On really tough emotional or over-stimulated days, she will ask for a bath to calm down and (most of the time), we accommodate.
9/365: Snuggle Puppy
Lollipop has begun sleeping in Aly's bed more and more. It hasn't been every night, but definitely more often and with less begging and bribery. The tiny human could not be happier and these two seem to be bonding even more.
10/365: "5 Little Mushrooms"
She loves raspberries. Mostly because she can stick them on her fingers, call them little mushrooms, and count them down as she eats them. "5 little mushrooms. 4 little mushrooms. 3 little mushrooms. 2 little mushrooms. 1 little mushroom. 0 little mushrooms."
11/365: Sea World with a Friend
One of Aly's school/Girl Scout friends also has a Sea World pass and we visited the park together on this day. Aly had a BLAST and did very well practicing flexibility, taking turns, and making conversation; all important social skills that she has been working on in therapy.
12/365: A Study in Orange
It was an orange treat kind of a day. One kind in the morning from mommy. Another kind after dinner from daddy. She enjoyed both.
13/365: Laser Toy
Lollipop isn't really into toys. She doesn't chase balls. Chew toys get ignored. But, she LOVES chasing bubbles out side with Aly. For Christmas, we wanted to get something for her that she could play with inside, preferably with Aly. When we had a cat, we had a laser pointer that she LOVED chasing, and we never would have thought to get one for our dog. However, my sister's dog goes nuts for a good laser chase so we thought we would give it a go. Jackpot.
14/365: Rainy Day Blanket Play
It was a rainy day in San Diego, and the last day of winter break before she went back to Kindergarten. I decided to have a little fun playing in the only pocket of light coming into the house, by the big sliding glass doors. I grabbed my Mee-Maw's old, hand-crocheted yellow blanket, threw it over our heads, and started snapping. Lollipop came over to investigate (and lick our toes!) and the giggles ensued!
