Color Me Surprised

First she wanted to frost the cake with the rainbow herself. OK - why not? Then when it came time for presents, she actually seemed interested in the scrapbook I made for her (she may not be as interested in the journaling part that I haven't told her about yet). 

 

She was mostly patient, fairly content to be at Grandma and Grandpa's. (She's till unhappy about being "abandoned" for a week while we went last year.) She's asking to fly to California again, and she wanted to go to the river with Grandpa but we weren't able to do that. It really makes me happy that she's interacting more with my dad - for much of her life, she's been indifferent to or even avoided him (he has some work-related hearing loss, and speaks loudly).

All in all, it was a good weekend. The poop issue seems to be resolved, but we will see how today goes...
