What a Difference a Day Makes

Who is this kid?!?!
Playing in the sand (in the outfit she put together!)

Enjoying the beautiful day

Look at me taking my medicine like a big girl!
Kayley had a great day!  We thought it would be another rough day when she woke up in pain at 5:30am and Andy had to pin her down to give her tylenol.  She fell right back to sleep and woke up in a great mood around 8:30am.  Andy poured her antibiotic into a medicine cup and walked over to her.  She started whining that she didn't want it.  He set it down in front of her and told her she had to take it and she could take it when she was ready.  She looked at the cup and then back at him and then picked up the cup and took it like a shot!  When we were really struggling with her a few days ago to take her medicine, Andy promised her a fish if she would take her medicine like a big girl.  Looks like Andy is buying her a fish!  They decided they will go pick out her fish tomorrow.

She drank relatively well throughout the day and even ate some food.  She drank gatorade, water, white milk and a lot of chocolate milk.  She also had a little bit of scrambled eggs, cottage cheese, black olives, peaches, cheese and a soft cookie (hey, whatever she wants right now).  She didn't have any interest in ice cream, pudding or popsicles.  On the other hand, Drew has been enjoying lots of ice cream and popsicles because every time we offered either to Kayley, he lets us know that he would like some. 

I don't want to give the impression that she is completely back to normal.  When her tylenol is wearing off or she is getting tired, she becomes very dramatic and whiny!  She is over the top at times, but you can't get mad at her and it is pretty funny.  Actually, as I think about it, she is pretty much back to normal!  :-)

UPDATE:  As I write this, Kayley is refusing to take her tylenol with codeine, which we give her at night to help her sleep better.  It does not taste as good as regular tylenol and she is having no part of it.  Guess we still have some work to do.
