April 2015

April has been a busy month and there have been a couple of not so great things that happened but it’s been ok overall. First, Eliza had an oral food challenge with egg since last month her allergy test showed that she was no longer allergic to eggs or bananas. The next step after that is to have her eat an egg or banana in a doctor’s office and see if she has a reaction. We started off with egg. They gave her a tiny 1/8 piece of the egg and and she immediately felt bad, turned red, threw up, got hives. It was scary to watch her anaphylactic reaction. So no eggs and I am not even going to attempt to try bananas. They said maybe wait until she is 6 and try again.

Then the weekend after that happened we were driving on the freeway and got rear ended by someone. Traffic on the freeway all of a sudden came to a complete stop and I guess they weren’t paying attention and hit us. And of course it turns out that they were uninsured. I had whiplash but Andy and Eliza were fine. Thank goodness she has a good car seat! When you have an accident you are also supposed to replace your car seat so insurance sent us money to buy a new one so we have already replaced that. And the people who hit us graciously agreed to buy us a new stroller since her stroller was in the back of the car when they hit us.

And now on to some fun things for the month, Eliza did a couple of trial ballet classes and loved the class at Dance Connection PAC because they do ballet AND tap so we signed her up for that. She is so excited and really loves it. She is obsessed with wearing her tap shoes and wants to wear them all the time but she can’t.

Andy and Eliza were on Spring Break this month so we spent some time together, went to San Francisco one day, went to the pool another day and just had a nice time staying local and relaxing.

This good sleeper has not been very good at going to bed lately. Even if we put her in bed she will stay up until 9 or 9:30 playing her room. Then around 11:30 she wakes up and comes downstairs to see me or ends up in our bed. I don’t mind that so much but she always puts her head near me and ends up kicking poor Andy so I know that drives them crazy. I don’t want her to sleep in our bed forever but I really don’t mind a few cuddles now and then. But then again, she’s not kicking me. ­čÖé

On April 29 we flew to Texas for 10 days with family and friends and also to attend my friend Glenn’s wedding on May 2. Eliza was so great on the plane. She got her own seat and loved sitting by the window. Once we got to Houston she loved picking vegetables from my mom’s garden and had fun swimming in my dad and stepmom’s pool. More on the trip in next month’s blog post.

Eliza has been especially funny this month for some reason. Grandmas- you won’t like some of these but I am documenting them for posterity. Here are some of her sayings that have had us in stitches (or in complete shock):

Asked me: Where is God? Does God have a cat?

I helped her put her headband on and then she exclaimed “I’m so stylish!” Once I stopped laughing she told me “You need to write that one down.”

Deep thoughts from Eliza while cruising the Safeway aisles: I don’t want you to get a baby new. I’m your baby. I’m your sweetie pie.

I have a really unbreakable head

Can I get a pedicure mommy? Because my feet aren’t pedicured.

Dr. Blair’s my name and finding out is my game.

Passing the chocolate ice cream at Safeway: that looks like a piece of poop!

Walking around the house playing saying: bitch bitch biggity bitch I said bitch bitch biggity bitch.

Then asking me to join her in a new rendition: bang bang bangity bitch, bang bang bangity bitch.

While watching The Little Mermaid one evening:
Me: That Ursula isn’t very nice is she?
Eliza: She’s a fuckin bitch.

Threw an epic tantrum because I wouldn’t turn off the music so her fake horse could sleep.
