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?
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".
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.
Ryan and I met on a blind date. Long story short, he chased and we married. (well I chased too then we broke up, this cycle over and over, a long long story). Now were living in Palmer Alaska, enjoying our home and our little Adelle who turns 1 the end of January. Because we love Adelle, we're giving her a little sister this May. While Ryan works on the slope I single Mom it, its great! Now were looking to start foster care and preparing physically emotionally and artilarylly. Fun things you'll be reading...keep posted and leave comments!!!
