Raven's been sick with a nasty mucus-filled cough for days now, and for most kids, that would mean more naps (or maybe longer naps), but for Raven, that means that she sleeps less, and more fitfully at that. As of now, during her one "nap time" of the day, she is proceeding to name every object in her room and make a sound that closely resembles a duck trying to sing.
It's amazing that I'm getting this out on time, is what I'm saying.
Here's some of what we've been up to over the past month of picture-taking:
7// We used some of Raven's Christmas money from her grandparents in Missouri to buy her some new board books from the only local bookstore left in Logan. The entire car ride home from the store, she chanted, "NEW BOOKS! NEW BOOKS!" in the back, with never-wavering enthusiasm.
She is definitely our kid.
10// Since Mom has taken up doing her hip hop aerobics routines at home during the week for extra exercise (since there's no way she's going outside to run in the -20 degree weather we've been having), Raven has officially became the Dance Queen of the Year.
(But we managed to get some pretty cute pics, anyway)
And, for more Raven goodness, here's a video of me trying to get her to say "Cookie" really loud (like she'll sometimes yell out in the middle of the night):
Aaaaand....I'd better go get her out of her crib since there's obviously no napping going on today...
