talk about it more

a virtual baby book

When she was two, Fiona regularly said "Talk about it more!" to express her desire to know more about whatever we were discussing.

Painting practice

Yesterday we repainted our basement stairway together. Fiona learned that there is almost more prepping than there is painting in such a small space. She was almost disinterested by the time we got to the actual painting! Now instead of deep red sponge painting on ceiling and walls, with pinecone stenciling that Fiona continually refers to as 'pineapple stencils', we have creamy yellow walls and a white ceiling. It looks just like the kitchen will look if we ever finish it! We finished off two old cans of paint on this job, even though it looks relatively small.

We worked so hard we missed a call to go outside and play with friends in the freshly fallen snow, but that turned out to be a good thing since Fiona has since spiked a temp of 103 with no other symptoms. This morning she's much cheerier, but still over 101. We'll see what today holds...

LOVE the pic!! Ok, so love the t-shirt Fiona has on more! Hope she is feeling better today. Fevers can be scary. No infection anywhere?

I knew you'd like seeing your shirt, Jennifer. She loves that thing!

Fever is better now, but if her throat still looks like it does today by this time tomorrow, we need to go get a strep test. : (
