A little bit of lightheartedness

All photos in the last couple of days, that show Marian's cheery little spirit is still there, even if she is also tired and grumpy, too.

First, goofy grins for her ice. Ice from the machine, even though it's that cool easy-to-bite kind, is not sterile enough, so I make her custom ice chips by freezing 1/3 bottle of fresh water (meaning it hasn't been opened longer than 1 minute...that's hyperbole, we're allowed 4 hours before is is suddenly unclean), then smashing the bottle on the floor until it is crushed enough to shake out chips. Then into a clean new cup to be eaten with an individually-wrapped plastic spoon. She loves it.
Bathtime karaoke. When we were readying for her bath Wednesday, she caught up the end of her feeding extension (just used for medicines right now because she is all IV--TPN--nutrition) and started singing. So I had to grab the camera and make her do it again.A bit of energy for crafting yesterday, so I pulled out the bin and let her choose (my choices get a lot of "NO!"s lately). She stickered a tin. We've a rich sticker library these days from packages and her trips to Michaels with the $ she earned via project superstar. She had me decorate the bottom with some bits of colorful twine sent to us by my sister's coolio mother-in-law. And did a weird pose with them...
