"I need to hold the blanket!"

This was Sophie's reponse tonight when I asked if she was "all better" after I kissed her knee that she hurt by falling down. My comfort isn't good enough, though - she needs her blanket:

Understandable, I guess - but I was more concerned with counting the words in that sentence while smiling and shaking my head. This is something that I tend to do a lot of lately, as Sophie's language is blossoming and she is mostly speaking in four word sentences (or more!). And I know I have mentioned it before, but I will say it again - I wish I could have had a glimpse of our life today to ease my mind when Sophie was a baby. No words can possibly describe the pride and appreciation I have for her and her "ears".

Bound to happen?

Tonight, one of my biggest fears came true - I dropped a CI in the bathtub. :(

I usually let Sophie wear them for the first few minutes of her bath so she can hear the water running and have fun splashing. She always does a pretty good job at keeping her head dry - this one was totally my fault. As I was slipping her headband and CIs off tonight, I dropped one straight into the water. Kerplunnnkkkk. Nice.

I dried it off and literally sprinted to put it in the dry-store container, so I'm sure it will be fine. The N5s are water-resistant, at least. Here's to hoping for a functional ear tomorrow!

Snow Day!

A fun-filled day at my parents' house earlier this week when the St. Louis area was graced with a dusting of snow:

Got to love days like this where you can slow down, forget about everything that needs to get done, and just have some fun. :)

I hope everyone out there is having a great February!
