I'm Feeling a Little Better...

... Can I have a little candy?

Eila has been really sick this week with a sore throat, cough, and high fever. She has pretty much slept for three days and been all around not well. She moaned, but didn't talk for several days, so the house has been eerily quiet. When I explained to Eila that she should try to eat some food to help her get better, she suggested candy. I tried to persuade her that some other foods might be better for a sick little girl and that sugar could make it harder for her body to get better. Being sick at Halloween is hard. Showing that while her body wasn't running at it's best, her mind is as good as ever, she replied that she was feeling a little better, so she should have a little candy.

The Shirt off Her Back

We went shopping this week for a birthday present for Eila's Grandma Kathy, and Eila wanted something for herself as well. Nothing new there. But, when I suggested that she could give her grandma something of her own choosing as well, she asked, "Does Grandma want this shirt?" pulling on the shirt she was wearing. I said that Grandma would probably want a slightly larger and cleaner shirt, and she seemed relieved. Eila is a generous little one, willing to give the shirt right off her back.

I'm the Mama.

You're the little girl. Eila is loving pretend play now, and loves to "be the Mama." She will take care of me when I'm hurt, which always happens when I'm the little girl and she takes me potty and gives me special treats. I also get to have a snack or dinner, because I'm a little bit hungry. Eila, as the Mama, has to drive and is sometimes too busy to help me, but she will in a minute.

Listen to Her Talk

Eila talks all the time, even when she has laryngitis (like today) and most of the time her speech is very clear, but there are a few words and phrases that she doesn't get just right, yet.

So, here are some cute ways that Eila says things:
pacifier = cette
lemonade = memolnade
spaghetti = spegalli
apple pie = apple poi
swimsuit = swimsoup
mine = mines
finger = feender
you're welcome = I welcome

This weekend also started the recognition that people on the radio are talking to us and actually saying things that we might understand and be interested in! Eila has chimed up happily from her car seat, "He said ___!" So far the things that interest her seem to be related to food, buses, or weather.
