Chloe Belle is having a sick day. She's wearing a pesky fever which comes and goes with dosages of Tylenol. She's clinging to daddy and resting her droopy eyelids at home today...but she's still playing with her Bitty Baby. Hubs sent me this cell phone photo this morning:
Last night, Chloe opened a belated birthday gift from her Aunt & Uncle in Washington (state). She received this gift set (minus the doll which she already had):
Even with her fever her eyes lit up when she opened the box last night. She sat on my kitchen counter and we immediately redressed baby in her brand new dress and bib. She proceeded to cover her with her blanket and feed her with her new bottle while I got dinner ready.
She played with baby until her eyes could no longer focus. After one failed attempt to lay her down in her crib, which resulted in crying, gagging, and throwing up chunks of watermelon in my hands (Ewwww), she finally succumbed to sleep in my arms in front of the TV...then, I laid her down in her crib - right next to baby.
Hopefully Friday will bring restored health and sunny skies (seriously, enough of the rain and gloom already).
