the bean is back to normal! yay! and to celebrate, she got to play with her very first set of crayons. they're in cute little holders designed for toddlers to get a good grasp on 'em.
she's actually played with some before - restaurants always give her a set when we go out to eat, and she's come home with green and blue teeth in the past. heh. anyway, it's wonderful to have my happy, shiny baby back.
i made jessica's favorite recipe for chocolate chip cookies again. i think this is my very favorite too - it's been my go-to recipe for the last several batches. i pretty much have it memorized. the wans' cookie jar is rarely empty.
the bean and i watched the laker game together. she was highly amused at my antics, shouting and cheering and gesturing towards the tv. i'd chant "kobe! kobe! kobe!" and she would mimic me, chanting in her own babble and doing a little hop. it was pretty funny.
and during halftime, i got her ready for bed and then busted out her brand new toofbrush.
she's pretty familiar with a toothbrush, although she's used to her daddy's electric one. so she checked it out for a bit before shoving it in her mouth.
then she decided it would be best to stand in the sink while she did her bidness.
"how YOU doin'?"
"this thing doesn't taste like anything."
"ah, screw it. i'll make mom happy and just do it."
she liked it so much, she decided to keep on brushin'. in the living room.
and then figured she'd check if the other end was any more fun.
i tried to get her to show me her clean pearly whites when she was done, but she was pretty coy about it.
before the third quarter was over, she was out like a light. and i had to cheer silently for the rest of the game.
