A Lorelei report

This photo is from day before yesterday....
Since I was MIA yesterday as far as blogging goes, I thought I would share the reason why. We went and got the Lorelei yesterday morn and kept her till her daddy got off work at 5:00. I did do a load of clothes while she was here, but basically chased after her all day long.

One of the first things she did when she got here was to go give her Mickey Mouse plush rocker a hug. She doesn't like to sit on him, but she likes him. She will go and turn him around and hold him by his ears up to her face...or she will sit right in front of him and just look at his eyes and nose. Sometimes she tries to hang stuff on his nose. Others she pushes him around by his rockers.

She loves it when one the cats comes up to the window on the other side and wants in...she gets right in the window and jabbers. If she is doing something else and we see one come up to the window, we can say Lorelei, look at the cat in the window. She gets to that window as quickly as she can.

She does not like to give up and take a nap, so later in the afternoon she had just been yawning, and yawning. She got her little plastic turtle out of her toys and was walking around chewing on it. She stumbled over one of her other toys and fell...she just rolled over on her back and kept laying there, chewing on the turtle and looking around. I thought sure she would fall asleep like that, but she only laid there about 10-15 minutes, looking all around, and up she got.

Not long after that she went to sleep in my lap and slept for about an hour and 20 minutes. When she woke up, she didn't know whether to be happy or to cry...just kind of grumpy. Then I said the magic words: "Look at Bubbie in Papaw's chair!" Her eyes lit up and she wanted down, went over and started jabbering to him and just smiling. She didn't pet him...just talked to him. And he just looked at her.

I have a feeling she is going to be the best friend those cats ever have...they just don't know it yet. And I told Roger a while back, I don't think I have ever seen a child that doesn't like cats. And dogs, too, for that matter.

I enjoyed reading about your day with Lorelei. She is some charmer...that's for sure. Have a great weekend.

It sounds as if you had a wonderful day with Lorelei. I can understand why you were 'MIA yesterday as far as blogging goes'. You have to take care of the most important things first.

Litttle onedo love cats. I think a lot of kids are afraid of dogs, though, unless they grow up with them. Lorelei is as cute as ever!

I can remember the days of hoping they would take a nap, so I could take a nap, too! That was with my own kids....as a granny, it must be even more tiring! I'm sure you loved holding her while she slept :-)

Too much to see and learn in their little worlds and they don't want to miss one minute!

Lorelei seems like such a sweetheart...I can imagine you were a bit tired after tending to her needs for a day!

She's adorable! Naps are a problem at our house too...of course, Ayden is older, but still needs a nap most days.

Nice post Rose.. It's always nice to hear how Lorelei is getting on.

We had CaraJade stop over last night... she really tugs my heart strings at times... Last night she told me she was having 'A Strawberry Supper for her Yoghurt" I did chuckle at that and she asked why I was laughing.

We have our Malakai and his twin brothers and sister over to stop tonight.. it is a regular thing now at the weekend. Having the four can be very hard work and leaves both me and Jane tired when they go home... but it must be a good rest for there mum and our Sam...

All the very best to you all Rose... I do enjoy reading your blog and keeping up with how things are going on...

What an absolute sweetheart you have in Lorelei, I love reading about her. The pictures you share are just wonderful, and show such a happy little girl! Sometimes they just don't want to admit they are tired, they might miss something if they close their little eyes for a nap! Have an enjoyable week with your little sweetie!!

Awwwwww . . . . so cute.

Reminds me of myself and my kids, none of us ever wanted to nap.

Cute cute photo!
