Paging Dr. Pittard!

I don't know why she insisted on standing in front of the TV cabinet when she asked me to take these pictures, but ten points to you if you can name the movie that was on!

Several days ago, Selah asked me to take pictures of her in her doctor dress-up clothes that she got for Christmas. It's pure coincidence that her pajamas actually look like scrubs! A few months back, Selah developed a fascination with "dockering" - every time she got the tiniest bump or scrape, even invisible ones, she would race to the bathroom to collect Band-Aids, hollering, "Mommy, you 'docker' me?" Now she randomly attacks us with her toy stethoscope and blood pressure cuff, and she checks our reflexes when we least expect it.

Her latest fascination, in a similar line, is one of the kids' science books. It's a science encyclopedia published by Usborne that has a section on the human ear, hearing and sounds. She calls it her "ear book" and they've been inseparable the past couple of days. I read six pages of it to her, then daddy read those again last night, and she can't get enough! It's amusing to think that such a thoroughly silly little girl could someday be an actual medical doctor!

This morning, she ran up with her book and said, "Mommy, you take a picture my ear?", then eagerly posed for these pictures:

Selah and her "ear book"!
