Hey, ya'll! It's me, Sara Kate! I haven't had a chance to get on this computer and write lately...I've been so super busy doing stuff like playing outside and playing puzzles and reading books and getting in trouble for not listening...but we won't dwell on that. I had a fun day today with my mommy. She didn't make me go to school today because she had a holiday for Veterans Day (thank you veterans who served and still serve our country). And what made my day extra fun was that I got to spend it with my cousins, including my cousin Hannah who is my most favorite person in the whole world!! I got to play with them last night too and I was VERY upset when I had to go home. But mommy assured me that I could spend the whole day with them. And she was right!!
I woke up this morning and I REALLY wanted to wear my owl dress. Mommy kept suggesting other things, like a pink dress or my dress with cats or one with flowers. But I yelled 'no no no, owl dress!!' So she caved. I have a special knack for getting my way sometimes...but I try not to exploit that TOO much.
Before we could go to Meme's house, she had to take me to the eye doctor. She said it was for a check up and the doctor would look at my eyes. The last time I went I was 6 months old but I don't really remember that. I behaved really good and did what the doctor wanted me to do. I wore an eye patch like a pirate and looked at pictures on a wall and followed a light and wore some glasses and looked at a book. Mommy also talked to her about my 'wandering eye,' as she calls it.
It's very mild and looks like this if anybody wants to see...
But after my exam the doctor said my eye health is perfect and it's just something called 'a breakdown in binocularity,' which means it's just the way my eyes relax out when I'm tired. They also dilated my eyes. I looked funny but I could see fine. I heard the doctor tell mommy that dilation affects kids differently than it affects adults.
I was so excited to leave the eye doctor and go to Meme's house and see Hannah!!
Shortly after we got to Meme's house we left to go shopping. I got to ride in Meme's car with Hannah while Hayden rode in my car seat with mommy and AJ (that's Aunt Jenny). That made me so happy!
Mommy said she didn't even have to adjust the straps of my car seat so my giant man baby cousin Hayden could fit into it!
At Target me and Hannah rode in the cart. It was super fun and we were SOOOO silly! AJ called mommy to see where we were in the store and mommy said she was surprised they couldn't hear us!
After a couple more stops we went to Chick-Fil-A for lunch and I was so excited! I love that place! I ate all my chicken like a big girl!
After lunch we went back to Meme's house to take a nap. Hannah and I said we would lay down together and nap but mommy and Meme didn't buy it!
Actually, I kind of got in trouble and mommy almost made me leave and go home because I wouldn't calm down and go to sleep. But Meme saved the day and I fell asleep on her shoulder very quickly. I sure love my Meme!!
Hayden woke up from his nap first and mommy said she finally got a picture of the 'most serious child on the planet' smiling. That boy is silly.
After our naps we got to play some more before Hannah and Hayden had to go back home.
I was sad to see them go but mommy said I would see them next week for something called Thanksgiving. That sounds really cool!
Mommy brought me home and I saw daddy and we played all night long! We played puzzles and books and ball and the jumping game and the pretend game. I love playing!! I took a bath and got ready for bed. Mommy is saying I should go to bed now so I better get off here. I just wanted to tell ya'll about the fun day I had with my cousins and I can't wait to see them again soon!
