Last night I put her down in the center of her crib with her feet facing the right side...and I wake up with her legs on the opposite side of the bed! I don't know how she does it- but she sure is getting wiggly!

Addie pretty much decided it wasn't "her thing" and arched her back trying to get the heck out of there. I must admit- I am very surprised she doesn't like it since she loves to be upright and look at everything. She did like it okay once I gave her a toy to hold onto. Hmmmm we'll just have to keep at it. You wait- one day she will share the love I have for the bumbo....
Addie's experience sitting in the bumbo: A pure disappointment for me....maybe a exersaucer would be better?

Yes, I got the waiters to sing to him- though to our disappointment, nobody seems to give out a little dessert when its your birthday anymore....oh well good thing there was ice cream waiting at home. Adelyn cooperated better on the way back- and she helped daddy when it was time to open up presents. I did get pictures- but Jared brought the camera to work, so I'll have to post them up later. Addie got him a gift card to Pinkberry (his favorite yogurt place, on stressful days) and we got him a picture frame filled with pictures of the family for Jared to take to work with him, and also the movie UP. We watched the movie after she went to bed....I still cried- I don't know how anyone doesn't.
Thank you for any cards, packages, and phone calls given! I hope that you enjoyed your birthday sweetie- I love you!!

*cooked dinner (a tri-tip dinner) :)
*cleaned the kitchen (several times)
*put laundry away
*played with Adelyn
Made Brownies!!!! He knew I'd been craving desserts lately so he made brownies from scratch Sunday afternoon. If you've ever attempted to make homemade brownies before, you know they're pretty difficult to get right. Jared did great! They tasted soooo good! I really appreciated the effort and thoughtfulness he put into making them for me.
What an amazing husband I have- I really couldn't be more lucky. Thanks for all you did this weekend, and all you do for me each and every day. Your kindness is not overlooked :) Thank you and love ya!

Since going to Phoenix, she's decided to switch up her schedule a little bit. We no longer take a long morning nap, which leaves lots of room for grumpiness. To solve this, going on walks has been a good outlet for both Adelyn and myself. With Jared home on Saturday, all three of us walked around the nearby park and decided to take a detour to see if Addie would like the ducks.
Result: we still don't know, she just stared at everything for an equal amount of time. Maybe next month ducks will be a bit more exciting- but for now, Jared and I enjoyed looking :).

Santa did bring some fun things-none of which she cared about. Adelyn actually slept until about 10ish and everyone was really antsy to see her reaction to opening presents. She did like to look at some, and other gifts had fun noises she liked. Maybe next year will be more exciting for presents. As for now-she'll love her toys in a few months.
