I’m tall enough now that I can reach up and open doors around the house. I’m not sure if Mom and Dad are proud of my accomplishment like they are of most of my others or if they’re dismayed at my new freedom of mobility. One thing for sure: The bathroom door will be locked if somebody’s using it and we have company.

I think my ear infection from last week is gone. I’m still taking yummy bubblegum flavored antibiotics 3x a day, but I feel fine. Mom and Dad seem on the mend as well, though they don’t get the good bubblegum stuff. Too bad for them!
