Is Hila trying to get rid of me?

The other day we were outside playing and Hila said, "Mommy, go away." And I said, "No." And then she said, "Okay, Mommy stay here." So I said okay and sat down next to her. And then she got up and walked away.

Hammocks and Jellyfish

Yesterday Hila and I were out on our balcony and Hila was sitting in the hammock (no way I'm getting in--i'll never get this huge body out of it). I asked Hila if she knew what the things she was sitting in was called. With a very matter-of-fact tone she answered, "A magic carpet!"

Is this a kid who has watched Aladdin one too many times or what?

Then later I was making her a peanut butter and jelly sandwich and, very politely, Hila said, "More jellyfish, please."

Bye Bye Bottles!

We said we would do it and we did: We got rid of all of Hila's bottles just before Pesach. She's probably asked for a bottle of milk once a day since then, but has not cried or whined when I offered her a cup of milk instead. I think maybe today she didn't even ask for one. Of course, now she's drinking very little milk (none today), but we'll work on that. She has two new sippy cups that she's enjoying, and otherwise she is drinking from regular cups. Yay Hila!

And about the pacifier...we'll revisit that in six months or so. For now, she's super attached to it and we're not in the mood to fight. She just got her bottles taken away, there's a new baby coming soon, and then we have a trip to American later in the summer (i.e. long flights). We'll let her hold on to the pacifier at least through all that.
