Zia has learned the word "no". She has been saying "uh huh" and "uh uh" for yes and no for awhile now. I was taking her up for a nap today and she clearly said "no nigh nigh". Of course she crashed shortly after, but she would have been perfectly happy to stay awake if I'd let her.
I made the kids chocolate oatmeal for breakfast today. It's just oatmeal cooked with smashed banana, cocoa powder, vanilla extract, peanut butter, a pinch of salt, and sometimes a teaspoon or two of maple syrup if the banana wasn't ripe enough to be really sweet. Zia woke this morning around 6:30 and nursed. She ate a bowl of oatmeal around 7:15 and nursed again around 8:00 after the older two went to the bus. Then she ate half an apple and probably 1/3 c of dry Joe's Os. I packed her more Joe's O's for the gym, thinking there was no way she would need a snack before I picked her up since she would only be there for 90 minutes max. I was wrong. When I picked her up, they told me that she had taken the tray off a high chair, climbed in herself, and started yelling at the workers because she wanted a snack. They said that she usually waits until the other kids are having a snack and then demands to be put in a high chair or sat down at a table. They were laughing at how demanding she can be. There is a little play area with a slide and some padded rolling things. Z will go over one, fall to the bottom, get stuck and then yell at other kids to help her out. She is so used to the twins helping that she must just expect every other kid to do whatever she wants.
