Grandma and Grandpa week

It's been a big week for me. Lots going on and some of it not so fun. I'm feeling better now, so I'll tell you about it.

Sunday night Mommy and I came to Grandma and Grandpa's house to stay so that we could get my glasses fixed and stuff. Monday morning Grandma C gave me a bath, and we played and splashed. Then she got me all lotioned up by the fire where it was toasty warm.

Then I played some with my toys, but it was hard because my glasses kept falling off. There's a picture to show you how they're broken. And there's one to show you how Mommy tried to make the broken part soft so I could use them a little. But they just felt funny on my nose because they didn't fit right.

We did go out for a little bit and shopped for some stuff for me. Grandma C got me some new socks that I needed and some sleeping outfits. It was fun to go shopping. When we got home, me and Grandma C went for a walk too, because it wasn't too cold outside.

Tuesday morning we went to the doctor's office since they didn't call Mommy back on Monday. Dr. S checked me out and said I could just get my glasses fixed because they were still the right kind. (Here's Mommy's stories about Monday and Tuesday if you want big people details.)

After we saw Dr. S, we went over to the place where I got my glasses. Mr. Terry helped us again--he helped us two weeks ago when we were there because I had bent my glasses--and he is really nice. I tried to watch him do some work, but it was too high for me to see.

Then we went in the other room where the kids glasses are. There was someone sitting in my chair with me, but I didn't want to look at her.

Mr. Terry was able to fix my glasses so they would stay on while he orders new pieces for them.

Then Mommy decided maybe we should get another pair for me in case something happens again. (But she sure told me I better be a good girl!) We looked at some that were kind of cute but not very comfortable because they touched my face in alot of places. I just kept pulling them off.

So we decided to get another pair that is more like my regular ones. That way I will maybe leave them alone better, Mommy says. While Mommy and Mr. Terry were finishing up, I found someone to play with.

When we got home and had dinner, Grandma C took me to play in the bath again. She fixed my hair afterward, but I didn't let her play with it too much. I don't like my hair played with, but someday Mommy says it will be fun.

I went to bed after my bath, but I woke up in a little bit because I didn't feel good. I didn't feel good all night, so I wanted Mommy to hold me and not put me down. I got very hot and it was not fun at all. It was a very long night, Mommy said, and we didn't get much sleep. Grandma C got up and held me for a while so that Mommy could snooze a little, and I slept good on Grandma. In the morning, Mommy sneaked me into a big blanket that was cooshy and I slept for a little bit there.

When I woke up later in the day, I was all smiles and Mommy was so happy!

She kept giving me the medicine to help me feel better, and I played a little bit. Grandma and Grandpa came home from work, and Grandma C took me on another walk because it was warm outside. Mommy and I went to bed early last night so we could make up for some sleep we didn't get the night before.

The good news is that I slept all night, and so did Mommy! Yay for us! I have been playing this morning, but I did have a little uh-oh. I fell over when I was by the fireplace, and I scratched my head on the corner. That didn't make me happy at all, but Mommy kissed it and made it all better. We're feeling pretty good today and we're going to get ready to go see Dr. R so he can look at my button. Then if we can pick up the new pieces to my glasses, we can maybe go home today! That would be really good!


  1. You look so cute in your glasses and looking in the mirror. I'm glad Grandma and Mommy took such good care of you while you weren't feeling well.

  2. It's always fun when you come to visit. For me anyway.

  3. Glad she is feeling better! She is such a sweetie in the glasses. Probably a smart idea to get that second plastic pair too ;-)

  5. Gabi has 2 pairs. That way if one gets bent then the other one is there, and you don't have to constantly go to get them readjusted. I wait until they are both bent and then go.

  6. Wow, what a busy trip!

    How cute was Braska, ignoring Minnie Mouse!?

  7. Hi Braska! Glad to hear your trip went well, you got your new glasses and you are feeling better! So sorry I wasn't here to see you, but I'll come visit you soon. Love you bunches!

  8. I am glad you are doing better Braska Bear! Take care of yourself and come home safely! You look so cute in your glasses and looks like you had a fun adventure at Grandma's!
