Today I went outside...

Ha Ha!! Yes, it is true, I don't get out much these days and lately it has been roughly once a week. But today, Mei Lin woke up with a smile on her face (after a full night sleep) and things were going good, so I jumped at the chance and actually got to have a shower, yes a shower!...called up my sister and made some plans for Mei Lin to interact with some other kids!! We spent 2.5hrs at my sisters and Mei Lin and Rory played and hugged and shared snacks and giggles!...We then went home and scooped up daddy to go out for supper (yeah, supper too!)...the waitresses were singing "happy birthday" to everyone in the restaurant it seemed, so they offered to sing to Mei Lin as well (it is her birthday next Wednesday)...well, they came out singing happy birthday with a piece of cake with a candle in it! At first she looked at them like they were crazy, but gave them big applause when they were finished. She then blew out her candle in one big drooly blow! By the way, this kid LOVES chocolate!! When I went to take the plate away, as there were only crumbs left, she screamed! And when I went to wipe her fingers off, she quickly snapped them away as she still had finger licking to do!!

We then scooted off to Walmart to buy the big birthday present! (yes, she was there...but she doesn't know!!)...we got her a potty that makes the flushing noise and we also got her a pair of sunglasses...when we got home she put the sunglasses on and she ran and danced and had so much fun, she loves to act "cool"!! I love seeing her so happy!

Here's to getting outside! (again, no pics!)

I'm smiling at the thought of her with her sunglasses. Sounds like a great day.
