I could not get Kelsey to drink anything 2 weeks ago when she was sick. We tried to sneak pedialyte into her sippy cup, so she even stopped drinking water. I even tried (get ready to GASP) giving her juice. No go..she wanted none of it and I was getting concerned. On advice from a friend I remembered I had frozen pedialyte pops...she screamed when I came near her with them. She was having very few wet diapers and between that and her fever I needed to do something so as not to end up in the ER with a dehydrated child. When Lou got home from work I ran out to Walmart (alone!!) I bought a $.97 water bottle..and it was a success.

We found this reclining kids chair yesterday for an unbelievable deal, so we bought it for Kelsey. We set it up last night next to Lou's chair and this morning we brought her down to see her surprise. By the smile on her face...I think she liked it!

Pizza!! It definitely will not be an every week thing, but we were at a friend's birthday party (Happy Birthday Maddie!) and everyone else was eating it and I forgot to pack anything else for her to have. She enjoyed it...However I did give her blueberries and the quinoa salad when we got home.

In an attempt to keep our family room from looking like Kelsey's playroom, we purchased a new shelving organizer. After Christmas we decided to keep the couches as they are in the picture above, which creates an area for Kelsey's stuff to be stored. It works perfectly....all of her little toys and smaller books are in the "drawers" so they are out of sight. It still allows for a place to keep the computer, a lamp and a family picture.
You'll also notice there is room in the corner to store Lou's new toys as well!!

Aunt Kellie and her boyfriend James came over last night to hang out with Kelsey, eat dinner and rock out on some Guitar Hero World Tour. Prior to bath time the group played 2 songs for Kelsey. Before she let them play though, she took control of the drums and "Rocked out". If you listen on the video, she repeats rock out!

a little background. My dad (Gpa McDonald) had 3 grandsons first, and now continues to call all of his grandchildren buddy as a term of endearment.
This morning while we were hanging in bed with Kelsey she said "hi buddy" so clearly. Lou said what did she just say and she repeated exactly what I knew she had said "hi buddy!" So funny the things (words) they remember and pick up!
