Thus Begin the Temper Tantrums
Today, for the first time, Adrianna had a temper tantrum. A few actually. If she got frustrated about something, she would throw herself down on the floor and cry. It was quite cute since they didn’t last long. I am sure I will change my tune as time goes by.
Another thing that Adrianna started for the first time today was talking on the telephone. Well, actually it was a tv remove, but she held it up to her ear, walked around the living room, and talked into it for about 10 minutes. Saying things that sounded similar to “Hello” and “Um-hmm.”
On Saturday, I bought Adrianna a farm set of “Little People” that includes a farmer and several animals. I will take the cow and say, “The cow says ‘Moooo'” and she will imitate a humming noise back of “Hooom.” I was also taking the animal pieces and “walking” them around the barnyard. Today, I noticed that she has now started to walk the animals too, except that they don’t always walk on their feet. They sometimes walk on their backs or their heads. Pretty talented, these animals are.
So last night, I started feeling queasy. Sure enough, I have caught what Adrianna had. I was up most of the night, getting way too familiar with our toilet and our trashcan. I was hoping I would be as resilient as Adrianna was at recovering, but unfortunately the fever and aches are still with me tonight, more than 24 hours later. At least the rest of the unpleasantness ended this morning.
