Thankful, Thankful, Thankful

Today was such a great day!! I had energy unlike I have probably had since October. Can I tell you how great that is!! I am thankful, thankful, thankful for this wonderful unexpected blessing. We just went on a crazy buy Wal*Mart out of groceries spree. Good thing is I shouldn't have to go back for at least two weeks!! College was super long. I have so much homework I don't even want to think about. Tomorrow I have a drs. appt. in Mena. Hopefully, we will be able to come right back to Hot Springs after that because I have way too much to do this weekend. Makes me crazy thinking about it.

Kili decided to tell me "no" today. She has been saying a couple words for a while- dada, daddy, done, and something else that I can't recall right this second. Well then she has a couple things she says that are close to words or things she mumbles, but we don't think she really knows what she is saying yet because they don't make sense in what is going on. Anyway, you get me I'm sure. So she has been on this crazy spitting spree ever since my brother reinforced the skill a couple of weeks ago. It is very frustrating to get her to eat because no matter how hungry she is, she may or may not spit. It comes with no warning. Well, after not eating pretty much anything than milk for a couple days, we decided spitting or not she has to eat. So she hates having her mouth wiped and every time she spits we say,"No, no spitting." Then wipe her mouth extra good, which is necessary anyway at that point. We are hoping this will deter the behavior. Anyway I told her this today as I have many, many times in the last week. She looked at my very discerningly and in a direct baby voice said, "no". It was all I could do not to laugh. I know this will probably be the only time I will find this cute, so I am secretly enjoying it.
