Addie and Daddy watching "Elmo's Christmas Countdown." Don't know who likes it more!?! We're all doing really well. Everyone's healthy and happy. Addie's sleeping through the night. She's starting to enjoy 'people food' as well. She's also rolling from one end of the room to the other. Very fun! We're still working on the crawling thing :) Brandt says this is a choppy paragraph. I must be reading too many of my students' essays...

Brandt and I both had the day off today, so we got to stay home and play with Addie! It was a nice relaxing day :-)

I have to brag... For those of you that don't know... My dance team took 2nd place in jazz and 4th place in high kick (out of 8 teams) last Saturday at our first competition! I was so proud of them!! We have a competition this weekend in Rochester. Looking forward to it :)

Addie's doing a little better (see above). She's sleeping a little and is generally in a good mood (unless mommy takes her apple wheel away). This post is an ode to Jeffy (not the special one). Jeffy is in Amsterdam checking out the pretty Christmas lights and partaking of special brownies (just kidding... it's with Bethel and YWAM). Hope you're having fun over there Jeffy (needed to continue the parenthesis)!

Our baby girl is really sick. She's been battling a cold for a week now, but the last few days it has been in her chest. I took her in last night, and after listening to her lungs, they decided to run a nebulizer treatment. This was the worst! I don't know if it was worse for Addie or for me! I had to hold her tight in my arms and hold that mask on her while she breathed in and out for 7 minutes! She screamed the whole time!! AHHH! But he listened to her lungs after the treatment, said they sounded much better, and sent us home with our very own Nebulizer to be done 4 times a day. I was dreading it last night, but Addie didn't even shed one tear. Whether it was the fact that it felt good to her to breathe in, the fact that we were at home and not in a small white room, or the fact that Elmo was on TV during the treatment... I was just thankful! She did well with it this morning too. Last night was rough- I 'got' to hold her all night. She'd sleep for 20 minutes, cry for 20, sleep, cry... I just felt so bad for her. It was a long night. So, keep us in your prayers. I took the rest of the week off of school, so I can stay home with her. I wish I could take it all away...

We had a play date yesterday with Amber and Liam. In the second pic, Liam was giving Addie kisses just before she tried to scrape off his face. Yikes! She'll learn to love him ;)
