Sticker Fun & Letter Spitting

The Wonder of Stickers: A (short) Poem

The wonder of stickers is how well they stick.
When baby needs soothing, stickers do the trick.
They stick to all kinds of stuff in all kinds of places!
They stick to paper, carpet, dogs, and faces!

The end.

What you can't see in these marvelously happy photos are the stickers all over her legs.

Bridgette noticed a plane. I have stickers. I made this hat. I like it.

And now, the point of this post, "Letter Spitting." Perhaps the laughing-est video you have ever seen of her.

Also, in case you're wondering, after 1 1/2 weeks, Bridgette is finally feeling better today. It's been a long haul.

The "new normal" is a beyond blowout around midnight, followed by a load of emergency laundry, a midnight bath for Bridgette, the removal of her mattress to wash both sides and her entire crib.

But this is ok! Because... she is urinating again (as of today), eating small morsels (yesterday), and we're not having to irrigate. She is laughing for the first time in weeks, so I think her pain has subsided to "normal" levels. She is still on three prescription meds, but I didn't have to give her Tylenol.

I laughed out loud with you! Did you notice how close Bri came to standing while trying to shove the letter into your mouth? And she did it without effort or thinking. Hooray, hooray! And I am so glad she is feeling better and laughing again.

Love you.

What a cute video! I love seeing and hearing Baby B laugh! She is adorable! And smart too! What a cute way to play with letters! I'm so glad she's feeling better today.

I also love seeing you in the video and pics too, Kel! You look fantastic! (and not only because you dropped a jean size... though yeah for you!) You are such a wonderful mom! Thanks for your example!

So fun! I'm glad to hear that she is feeling back to "normal," although I'm glad I don't have to be around your house at midnight. So sorry you have to deal with all the clean-up. We'll work on inventing some kind of auto-clean room where you shut the door and bubbles and water spray all over. You open the door and everything is completely dry and just as it should be.
