We Have A Crawler!

That's right! My baby is mobile! She took her first "crawling steps" last night. She's been working on it for weeks and finally did it on her own after watching Hudson crawl across the room. She also pulled herself up on her toy box 3 times yesterday! On today's "to do" list.....lower the crib mattress!!

"A Rhyme" By Hudson

This is what I overheard Hudson singing to himself the other week......

"Cin-der-el-um, dressed in yell-um, went upstairs to kiss a fella. Oh! He's cute!1-2-3-4-5."

Daddy was so proud.

Berry Sweet

The Pearces went berry pick'n this week for Marty's birthday. We drive by Page Farm's strawberry patch almost everyday and almost everyday, Hudson has reminded me, "Mommy!" "Look!" "The strawberry patch, it's open!" Hudson picked a few berries but he was more interested in mooing at the cows on the other end of the farm. When it was all said and done we ended up with some very yummy strawberries that both Hudson and Addison enjoyed eating!

I love this picture! So sweet.....

That My Girl!

Addison said "mama" yesterday! Whoo-hoo. Hudson didn't say it until he was well over a year old. He had more important things to talk about like balls and dada. Score one for team mommy!!

Addison: 8 Months

Happy eight months Addi girl!

Addison has done a lot of changing this past month. She wants to be in on all the action instead of just sitting around and drooling :) She desperately wants to be mobile and is really close to crawling. Every time I sit her down she lunges forward and puts herself in the crawling position or just does her impersonation of a turtle (you know...rocking on her belly with her arms and legs flailing.) She can hold onto your hands and walk, which is now her favorite thing to do. She claps her hands and when she gets really worked up she sucks in her bottom lip and strains. Sometimes the sound "ma" comes out. I like to think she's asking for me (ok, not really). She is still only sleeping in 7 hour stretches at night. My friend Stasha suggested I wake her up and feed her before I go to bed to see if she still wakes up at her normal time. I've fed her at 10 and she sleeps until almost 6 which confirms that she's waking up out of hunger and not habit. I've thought about giving her a bottle of formula before bed to see if that would hold her longer but I'm still too chicken to try.

Oh, and she hasn't had the best week. Monday I took her to the doctor for a double ear infection. Yuck! The antibiotics she's taking has given her diarrhea and the diarrhea is giving her a diaper rash. If that wasn't enough, she finally cut her first tooth. She has been incredibly sweet despite her week of yuckiness.
