It seems that Juliet made a new friend- Babchi. What you can't see in the video is Juliet standing out of frame putting her foot in the air, trying to get Babchi to do what she does in the end of the video.

I was trying to get pictures of Juliet in this really cute hat (it says "help mommy is having a bad day. Call 1-800-Grandma") She struck this pose right as I clicked the shutter. I laughed so hard! Juliet wasn't sure what was funny- but she laughed with me anyway. LOL

Juliet and I were goofing off at the dinner table tonight and I grabbed some Adorable pictures of her.

Somehow I managed to teach my daughter to clean. She'll go get a towel to wipe up when she spills her water. She'll even put things in the garbage when I ask to her. And while she liked pushing the broom, the vacuum was a HUGE hit. She got REALLY mad when it was time to turn it off. I hope she doesn't work it it's work for a LONG time.

Juliets new FAVORITE article of clothing is her hat. She loves it on, loves it even more when she pulls it over her own eyes. Goof.

Here is a test of your powers of observation. What is wrong with this picture????
(And yes, it was accidental. And no, I didn't notice right away- she'd been like this a good 1/2 an hour before I noticed)

Meant in the MOST lovingly way of course!
First we take a bath. Juliet had a grand old time chasing the bar of soap around to tub, every time she grabbed it, it would slip away and she would giggle. Fun. Finally, she managed to grab and hold on and what does she do? Remember those days when you talked back or said a bad word and your elders washed your mouth out with soap? And just how NASTY it was? Juliet bit the soap. I looked at her, a little shocked, and said "Ewww you don't eat that!". And she gave me a look that very clearly said "why?". Head tilt and everything.
Then, I laboriously spent 3 mins getting her hair all wet without getting a DROP of water in her ears. I soap her up, shampoo the hair, then laboriously spend the next 6 mins rinsing the shampoo out without getting any water in her ears. YES success! What does the twit- I mean my darling daughter do? Spend the next 10 mins working out how to dump water over her head getting an ENTIRE cup in the medicated ear. *sigh*

The plan is to go home in June for about a month, and while I'm getting ready by getting our passports in order- Juliet needs her Austalian one and I need both of mine renewed- Juliet was preparing by "practicing" wearing the backpack she'll carry on the plane.

I'm such a bad blogger. AS people keep reminding me I have not updated here in forever. It's hard to get on and make regular posts when you have a child trying to "help" you type or pushing your hands away from the keyboard because she can do 'all by herself'. Juliet has definitely become little miss independent. She likes to put her own arms in her coat (lord help you if you try and help her), likes to climb on and off the bed, stack her blocks, change the tv station, and most recently- potty. It was pretty funny actually, she took herself to the bathroom, sat on her potty, and peed. Too bad she didn't know to pull down her pants and I had to change them anyway.
Her ears seem to be doing well after the surgery. She has about a gazzillion words now which is great. She's already had one cold and infection so I'm thinking she might have something sinus like going on as to why every freaking cold gives her an infection.
AS for me, I'm feeling a little rudderless now that I am not working. It's nice to get up whenever Juliet wakes, eat with her, take her to daycare to play and head into school to study. I'm enjoying my time being a student, but there are days I just feel a bit empty. I guess it is because I'm not "contributing" to society right now- or maybe its just because I've been running at 200% for so long now that I don't know how to slow down. Anyway, there is so many choices to make for when I graduate. Do I do my PhD? Do I work for a while until Juliet goes to school? What will I do for money? With the house? It's all so up in the air right now.
