My favorite thing these days is to put Addi's hair in pigtails, her hair is just barely long enough. It makes me laugh every time. But is does make her look like a big girl and that makes me a little sad. Playing in the back yard
oh she likes rocks. and she likes to show me every one she picks up. and she likes dirt. It's gonna be an awesome summer.

Sleeping thru the night is a unattainable goal for Addison and I lately. She has never, maybe once slept thru the night-all the way- since she was born. It has been fine, I think she will grown out of it. I try to let her cry for 20 min. see if she will go back to sleep on her own and I always end up changing her, giving her a bottle and laying her back down. Last night was the last straw though . She woke up at 12:30 am then again at 5:30 am UP for the DAY! I am so angry!! ( and tierd) I dont know what to do, all the books say "cry it out!" that seems cruel to me, but is it the only way. I've never been around kids or babies and I really have no clue what I am doing. HELP, any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Long Day

Addison is down to one nap :( and she only took and 1 1/2 hour nap today. That made for a very LONG day. She has like 5 teeth coming in at once (no exaggeration)! We went outside today to have a change of pace and it was 40 degrees, so why not. She was so cute in her hat and coat. Addi loves to be outside and is obsessed with the dead leaves on the ground, I swear she picks them all up, licks them and puts them down. She's a weird little thing. Hopefully tomorrow will go a little smoother.
