Adelaide likes to put on my shirts and wear them as dresses. She wears them so well, I often find myself wishing I could do the same. Maybe a less see-through version.
“Two princesses! Two princesses, Mommy!”
Adelaide’s so proud of herself.
And Bristow’s thinking, I better get a treat out of this.
FYI – Adelaide is not sick anymore. Let’s celebrate with some cute tooth-brushing photos!
Adelaide is sick, which explains last night’s turbulent events. Runny nose, diarrhea and fever.
On the positive(?) side, I got to try out the new thermometer we received for August. I was a little skeptical about using a forehead thermometer, but it seems to work great. It read me at 98.8 and Adelaide at 101.8.
Oh, Laidey. You had a rough night last night.
You started crying at 2 am in a night terror–something you inherited from Mommy, unfortunately. You cried and cried with no consolation. Neither Daddy nor I could comfort you. And though you seemed awake, you were trapped in some sort of turbid alternate reality.
Even after you settled down, you rolled around in bed for hours with a pained expression on your face. It didn’t help that the neighbor’s dog was left outside to yip and yap and the parrots chatted loudly in the trees as the sun rose.
Finally, at 7 am, I took you to the bathroom, read you the story of Princess Adelaide, and you sunk under the covers in peaceful sleep at last.
Thankfully, you’ve only had a couple night terrors, and you should grow out of them soon. They say you won’t remember a thing about it today. (I wish I could say the same!) We will help you by making extra sure you go potty and get to bed before you get too tired.
And if I’m lucky, maybe you’ll take a nap with me this afternoon…

Mommy: Adelaide, get on your clothes.
Mommy: Get on your clothes, we’re going in the car.
Adelaide: No! I a doggy!
Mommy: Doggy, get on your clothes, we’re going in the car.
Adelaide: (Runing to the closet) Ruh-ruh!
Hanging out with Adelaide and Swift Heart in Pasadena.
Adelaide was singing a cute song while I was cleaning the kitchen…until I turned on the camera. Then she started singing her own version of the ABCs, including lyrics like “fly in my house” and “this is an apple.” Plus, a recorder solo!
Adelaide diving at her cousins’ pool last week. Daddy is the funnest : )
Happy Labor Day!
