She’s really a character. I just love her to bits, and her personality is so darn funny.
One of her quirky things to do lately is to mimic the face and body position of people on pictures or posters. She does this everywhere. If there’s a package in the commissary of a kid with an excited face and throwing his arms in the air, she has to do the same. She stops and works on her face and body until she feels she’s gotten it just right.
Then, of course, there’s the blue thing. She made a piece of art yesterday morning that was nothing but sparkly blue stickers on blue paper. No other color.
I’ve also found with her craft projects she really has a less-is-more mentality. (Meg is definitely a more-is-more kind of gal.)
Cate has to wear her sunglasses everywhere. She didn’t even want to take them off for soccer last Saturday, so she wore them while she played. Before we leave the house, she ensures she hasn’t forgotten them, and if she has, there’s hell to pay. She even will wear sunglasses inside sometimes. Above is a picture of her from this afternoon wearing mine.
Another thing with Cate lately is that she only wants to drink ice water. Perhaps she’ll drink a little juice at breakfast, but even that’s getting more and more rare. On the surface this sounds great, and for the most part, it is. Good news is that it’s even rubbing off on Meg a little, and she’s been asking for ice water more often. Problem comes when Cate refuses to drink any milk at all. I don’t want to discourage the water drinking, but she also needs to drink at least some milk. The first couple of days I just thought it was a “thing” and it would be over before it started, but now that it’s seeming to last, I’m going to have to really work to make sure she’s got enough calcium.
She’s such a laugh, and there’s never been a dull moment with her. Sometimes I curse it, but mostly I just thank God that he made sure I was never bored!
