Now we're getting creative...

I'll bet you can guess this nap didn't last very long.

Oh the Distruction!

Adelle had some funky naps today. She woke up from her first nap early and REALLY fussy, so she went down for her second nap early. Even then she cried in her crib much much longer than she normally does. I was really worried she wouldn't go to bed and it would just be a miserably long day.

Finally when it got quiet I went and checked on her just to make sure I hadn't gone deaf. Then I noticed some clues as to the continued crying.

Exhibit A. Porcelain doll knocked over, favorite bunny on floor. This was a first, how is Adelle baby to sleep without her bunny?

Exhibit B. Sleeping in a PILE of tissues pulled out by a naughty baby. I guess her bed isn't fluffy enough. More evidence that Adelle has learned she can stand up in the crib. She's never cared to before, but it's pretty clear what was going on while Mom wasn't looking.

The fusser finally woke up, on a cloud of tissues. So on a bed of fluff, why the sad face?

Baby Pictures for Daddy

Ryan asked for more pictures on the blog (when I was bragging how much fun Adelle and I have been having), so these are for him. He's been on the slope now for 2 1/2 weeks and doesn't come home until Thursday. So he's been away from her for awhile, not easy on a daddy. Random bits of fun.

The Campbell boys came over to play a few days ago and Adelle just adores them! Here they are watching The Never Ending Story. (see the video clip below for more cousin love)

And a few days ago it was absolutely beautiful, sunny and probably around 50 degrees, so we decided to go outside and "play".

Fun and Random

It's been awhile since I've posted pictures and my posts have been pretty impersonal lately. So I thought I'd do a quick mix of pics before Adelle two one and Lydia turns one.

Baby Dell sleeping. Look at those rosies!

This was most precious, I walked over to find Adelle petting Toby's head through the gate and Toby just loving it. She loves him, and he's starting to not run from her.

Adelle and I were playing chase around the kitchen. She always gets so excited that she laughs so hard she gets the hiccups. Happens every time!

Me at 31 weeks, like I said I am trying to get better at taking belly pics.

Here Adelle CANT take her eyes of The Sound of Music. I took about 10 pictures and each one looks just like this. How do you solve a problem like Adelle?

Finally it's Happening!!!!

We know that our child is delayed in the crawling area. Her chiropractor suggested that since she had a kinked back as a newborn it created the habit of not wanting to round her back, as is needed to crawl. He said she would never crawl, so we gave up hoping. (this sounds like a paralysis/car accident miracle, I guess thats how proud we are)

In Adelle's defense she is actually walking better than she is crawling. As long as you walk beside, in front or behind her she can go around the room, turn, and change directions. So even though walking is her preferred mode of transportation, I've really been working with her to crawl. By working I mean bribing her with thin mints. It was the only thing that worked, she LOVES those things!

Anyway, enjoy the very short clip. After taping this she learned to sit, then crawl, then sit, and got a lot better. Stay tuned and I'll get some more crawling clips up, and some walking ones as well. I haven't been able to get clips onto the blog before now, thats why your just now seeing them.

Childhood Song FOUND AT LAST!!!

I know this is silly, but this is a song I've been looking for and missing for about 15 years now. I remember being a young-in and this song coming on in the car and getting SO excited! I've searched and searched and asked people and people just look at me like I am crazy. Has no one heard of this song??? It's called Ponderous, or This is Ponderous.

Anyway I though I would share it, it makes me happy, maybe it will make you happy. Listening to it is as if not a day has gone by that I haven't been without my "friend".

Enjoy! (and know that this guy in the video is just that, some guy. Did a pretty good job lip singing though)
