Daisypath Happy Birthday tickers

This blog captures my thoughts and observations of Amelia since there are so many wonderful things I want to just bottle and enjoy. Time doesn't stop and while I will have memories, it will be nice for both her and me to have these in-the-moment snapshots of her life.

We take our date nights when we can, however we can. Last night, after spending all day cleaning out wet boxes from the basement (thanks to a leaking heat pump), we decided to rent a movie (Pink Panther 2 with Steve Martin) and made some microwave popcorn after Amelia went to bed. About 2 minutes into it we hear her door open and she comes out and looks at us sitting on the couch, big eyes on our bowls and says, "I need some of your snack." She hasn't had popcorn yet (it was on the list of choking hazards and we don't have it often enough to justify going out of our way to introduce it to her since it's not as nutritionally sound as other choking hazards such as raisins). I thought, why not, and let her have some and she loved it. Off she scooted to bed and we watched our movie.

This morning she saw the leftover popcorn on the kitchen table and climbed up in the chair, sitting properly for a few moments and saying she "needed a taste" of my popcorn. She then got down, played for a few minutes and repeated the climbing up, sitting on her bottom and declaring she needed another taste. Meanwhile, I'm making our usual Sunday morning waffles and beginning to wonder if she will have any appetite for them once they are ready! I thought it was funny that she would get up in the chair when she could have just pulled the bowl down.

So now she has a new treat. Must add microwave popcorn to the shopping list - last night was our last bag!
