There haven't been very many "Amelie" posts recently, pretty much because this is what it's looked like at our house for the past week. Amelie caught yet another virus/cold this winter and has been moping about on the couch (wearing snowman PJs from our friend Karie). At least James is in a good mood.
Anyway, since there aren't any recent cute photos, I thought I could at least post some stories.
The first night she was sick when her temperature was so high I let her sleep in the bed with me with James on the other side in his co-sleeper. James woke up crying around 3am and Amelie said (with her eyes still closed), "Tell James to be quiet. I'm trying to sleep."
She's said a few times, "I'm a little bit sick." This morning her nose was stuffy and she informed me: "I can't smell."
We had quesadillas last night for supper. Today when she wanted to eat a plain tortilla for her snack, she asked for a "quesadilla with no food."
This morning in her bath she was pretending to make a strawberry cake. The ingredients she named off were water, flour, and vanilla -- which is not too far off :) When Sam asked if she wanted to make a strawberry cake later, she said "No," which I thought was odd, then she added, "I want to make it now."
