The Spatula

Abigail had been sick for several weeks in February and March. She was starting to get better and then spiked a fever the next day. I took her to the doctor to make sure nothing was seriously wrong to find out that she had double ear infections again. Poor girl, I had no idea. She behaved well for the doctor and held very still. We then headed to grocery store to fill her prescription. While we waited for them to fill it, I decided to buy her a small treat for being so brave. We went to the Easter aisle and looked at the fun toys and treats. I told her that she could pick anything that she wanted. I guided her away from the large stuffed animals towards the smaller toys and treats. There were lots of fun things and she carefully picked them all up, held them, and then put them all back. In the end, she chose a green kitchen spatula. She was very particular about the color. This has been the favorite toy for the last few weeks. She carries it around with her and even sleeps with it in her arms. She is so creative as she pretends to use it to make cakes. So cute and so unexpected. We even took it with us to DC.

This beautiful self portrait captures her eyes and is a good example of why we always have smudges in all of our pictures.
