I had intended to stay in today but I have been putting something off and I finally got the courage to do it. I called a local lab about getting Chloe's stool samples tested. Yes, you read that right, poop. I happen to hate poop but apparently living in an institution for the first few months of her life means she is at risk for parasites, YUCK! I am a microbiologist but parasites kinda freak me out. I don't think she has them but better to be safe than spreading intestinal bugs around the whole family. I mean I don't mind sharing but I draw the line there.
So all that to say we (Chloe and I) ventured out in the frigid weather to get poop containers. Did I mention how they want me to get them?!?! No...well count yourself lucky and you might not want to visit for a few days it is going to be messy and gross around here.
I bundled Chloe up in her puffy coat, I actually thought she was never really going to wear it, however mother nature had better plans. And actually I'm more fond of it on the hanger than on the baby, it is cute but the sleeves are really long and it is a bit too puffy. Yes I said too puffy, I kind of felt like we would fit right in if we were back in China. She can't stand up in the coat apparently it is heavy in the back :). It does keep her warm though.
After our apparently exhausting trip to the poop lab, I found this in the back seat. She pulled her hat down over her eyes and took a nap. I had to add the hat since she kept tossing the hood off and with her recent ear infection I wanted that little head covered.
I thought I would be clever and take of the giant coat and put her in her crib to finish her nap, and this is what I got for thinking. Yes, she has half of her shirt off and is looking out of the window at the guys working on the house next door.
She was quite pleased with herself and tonight the crib was moved away from the window.
