One Two . . .

A Silent Night - Finally!

After 4 months and 1 week, Addison slept through the night for the first time last night! My alarm went off this morning and I was in shock that I didn't have to get up at all during the night. The sitter bumped her up to 6 oz and I have started giving her cereal. I guess she needed the extra food to get through the night. I pray that it wasn't just a one time thing. I could get used to this and maybe not be a zombie during the day.

Sorry, no pictures. I'll be so happy when this snow is gone and we get some warm weather and sunlight in the evenings. It is insane that Easter is less than a month away. I feel weird decorating the house for Easter with snow on the ground. Maybe the decorations will help bring on some warmer weather though. I need to dig it out.

Four Months Old

Addison turned four months old today. She looks bigger every time I look at her. On Friday she had her four month check up. She weighed 13 lbs 12 1/2 oz (50%), 24 1/2 inches long (50%), and 41.25 head circumference (50-75%). Zack was always 10% in everything, so she is gigantic compared to him. She loves to talk and she is going to need to in order to get a word in with Zack around. There is no sweeter sound than her happy little squeal. She also loves to watch her big brother play. She'll leans forward and try to get out of your arms. She will be crawling in no time. The doctor has gave me the okay to start cereal, but that is just one step closer to her growing up and she is too little to grow up. The time is going by way too fast and I'm slowly losing my baby.

I still haven't had an uninterupted night's sleep since she was born. She is a major paci addict, so the tired part of me can't wait until she is old enough to find it and put it back in her mouth by herself.

It looks like we are going to have another toe head. I noticed today that her new hair is coming in really blond. She is darker complected than Zack, so we thought she might be a brunette like her cousin Riley.

I wanted to get a naked picture of her after her bath this evening, but she was cold and not interested in nakey pics. Up until this evening, she has refused to put her arms down and hold her head up. I was completely shocked when she propped right up like an old pro. She has been close to rolling over, but hasn't accomplished it yet. I'm sure it won't be long now that she has some elevation.

Silly Boy

I tried to take some pictures of Addison on Sunday and Zack wanted in on the action. Of course he didn't want to cooperate though. Addison really wasn't in the mood either, so it didn't last long. She still isn't a fan of tummy time and refuses to put her arms down to hold her head up. She is also getting close to rolling over, but hasn't mastered it either.

Are you ready to come home Dad?

My dad HATES cold weather. Which is why my parents live in Florida for the winter and come back to Indiana for the summer. Well that and the beautiful beaches and oceans. I would add Mickey Mouse if it were me, but I don't think Disney influenced their decision to move.

We got about eight inches of snow yesterday. I was able to sneak out of work an hour early and get home in time for Zack to play in the snow before it got dark. Zack had a blast playing in it. It was perfect packing snow.

Ryan and Zack are out sledding now and Ryan just called and said he is absolutely loving it. I just hope his little bladder doesn't have an accident in the cold and away from home.
