My Girl

Chloe decided she didn't like her hat and gloves that she had from last year. Luckily we end up at the store quite often so I let her pick out new ones. Chloe is very opinionated and often times it just isn't worth the struggle with her to hash this kind of thing out. She will wear clothes-that is what is important. They usually match too. Sometimes she even has to have coordinating underwear! LOL! She doesn't care when I explain that no one will see them except her and I. She let me take a few photos of her in her new hat, gloves, and boots. I think she looks pretty darn cute. The new pants are a little big. Oh well.... :)

Funny Chloeism

I am so silly....

Chloe and her gingerbread house

Today Princess Chloe was in rare form. Sometimes in the morning she likes to play on I will let her for a little bit while I clean and get ready for the
day. Today I hopped in the shower really quick. As I was getting out I heard something fall to the floor. I knew it wasn't Chloe per say because it wasn't that loud. I called down to her and she said everything was fine (which I just knew wasn't). Quickly I put on my robe and went to check out the commotion. Princess had gotten down my gourmet M&Ms and eaten all of them, painted her right fingernails with a red marker, put about $3 in change in the printer, and eaten a Toblerone bar. This is all in the span of about 10 minutes. I said to her, "Chloe! I can't trust you down here for even a minute by yourself!" She looked up at me so casually and said, "Well.....I just didn't know any better."

Princess has snored since we came home from China. It is so loud. Finally we took her to the ENT and he referred us to the allergist. Her tonsils are fine but her adenoids are enlarged. We went Monday and they did some allergy testing. They used the scratch tests and we had to wait in the office for about 20 minutes for the results. I was so glad Matt was with me. Trying to keep her occupied for 20 minutes (with her shirt off-which she did NOT like) would have been difficult. We played with rubber bands, lip gloss, and colored on paper. She did pretty good. We could see she was reacting to something because one of the marks was getting red and raised. Chloe started complaining that it itched and suddenly broke out into song. How fitting when she belted out, "Oh....what you do to me...." from the Plain White T's. LOL! Turns out she is allergic to mold-the kind that grows in dirt. Can't do much about that! The allergist didn't think that was causing her snoring so we're back to the ENT next week.
