I have two eyebrows again!

Ready to get her stitches out!
Lilly got her stitches out today!  She was very excited to go on another adventure to Rye, NY to see Dr. Khoury and get her "frozen ice cream" afterwards.  I picked her up early from school, which I love because I get to go in and see a little glimpse of Lilly's school life.  11:30 is snack time so I saw them all sitting in a circle saying their blessing and getting ready to eat carrots and hummus--a pretty sophisticated snack.  Lilly's blessing is so sweet.  She wants to say it before every meal now and asks Jim and me to repeat after her so that we say it properly.

Lilly's school blessing
We thank you for this food,
For rest and home and all things good.
For wind and rain and sun above,
But most of all for those we love.
Bon appetit.  You may eat.  
Over your napkin please.

So, I picked Lilly up and off we went.  She was great and was even chatting with the doctor this time, telling him about Jack's walking and how he always drops toys when he's sitting in the stroller.  It took a few visits for our chatty Lilly to appear, but appear she did and Dr. Khoury had to ask her to be nice and quiet for a few minutes while he took the stitches out!

We celebrated with lunch at Starbucks--I brought lunch for Lilly and Jack and enjoyed a latte while they ate.  At Starbucks, Lilly was chatting away to the barista and said, "I got my stitches out and now I have two eyebrows again!"  The barista just laughed and said she was very happy to hear that Lilly has two eyebrows again and it must have been difficult having only one eyebrow.

Then it was off to get frozen yogurt--which Lilly calls "frozen ice cream."  It's a good thing we don't have to go back any more because this outing three times in 10 days was a lot!  Lilly now knows she wants chocolate frozen yogurt with sprinkles, teddy bears (gummy bears), 1 candy corn and 1 pumpkin candy corn, and "just a few" m&ms.  Waaaaay too much for a 3-year-old on a regular basis but just enough for a brave little 3-year-old after these three doctor's visits.  

She can now resume all her favorite activities, and hopefully we'll have a few years before our next medical adventure.
