Well, today, I get home to a big envelope from CVS/pharmacy that includes, the exact sort of dop kit I wanted. It's a gift from Garnier Fructis for buying some shampoo back in November. If only their promotional calendar had been a week earlier ... sigh.
Celeste!I never got a post-nap entry in yesterday, but Celeste did great. We had a nice afternoon together, playing with her balloon and folding laundry. She is doing a lot of vocalizing ... loud vocalizing. It doesn't seem like she's upset, she's just shouting while playing. I try telling her to use her inside voice and she looks at me like I'm crazy. Other than that, there were lots of giggles and smiles.
The other thing is that she has a little bit of a rash. Evelin noticed it while I was away, and thinks it might be food-related (she'd just introduced butternut squash that day or the day before), so Celeste is off solids for a week to see if that'll clear things up. I guess we could have fallen back to the applesauce and cereal, knocking out only the acorn and butternut squashes, but we didn't.
The biggest effect this seems to have had is that she watches us like a hawk if she happens to be up when we're having dinner. Not that we're trying to encourage begging for table scraps, but her furry cousin M--- (a Labrador retriever) would be impressed ...
