My little dancer :)

Well, I think we may be done with flu season at the Sorbel household! It comes every three days, so today would be the day that Brandt would get it, but he has seemed to avoid it this time. Addie is feeling much better. I stayed home from school today, but will go back tomorrow. It was no fun!

HI/LO: My highs for the week are above... I got Addie's hair in pigtails (so cute!!) and my friend Amber had her second baby boy, Landon!
My low for the week... Addie had the stomach flu yesterday. She threw up so much, it was so sad :( Her diet yesterday consisted of PediaLyte and crackers by the end of the day. Thank goodness for the 24 hour bug, though, because she slept 12 hours last night and is acting completely normal today! I'll ease into the food... Oh the joys of parenting!

As we approach 11 months next week, my girlie still isn't crawling or walking and sometimes acts as if she never will! I know, I know... the time will come and I need to be patient and just enjoy the stage she's in- which I do everyday! This is by far my favorite age (I think I've said that before)...but I still get anxious that she'll learn to do the things she's supposed to be doing at this age. I work with her all the time on crawling and standing/walking, but she's just not getting it! She's doing everything else, though, the "book" says she should be doing at this age- using a sippy cup, picking up small things, rolling a ball back and forth, waving goodbye, and recognizing words. Just not the crawling. She is a bit chunky, though, if you haven't noticed by now :) so maybe that's holding her back. I'll continue being patient- the time will come and I'm sure I'll be wishing she would just stay in one place!!

Addison was dedicated yesterday at church. It was a wonderful dedication and she was very well-behaved! We had all our family and best friends there... what a great day!

My brother, Jeff, had these on his facebook. We never knew he took the pics! My daughter, the thug :)

Thanks for the comments and support on my last post. It's nice to know other people are going through the same things as we are! She's actually slept really well the last 4 nights, which has been a blessing because Brandt and I are both sick and in need of rest. Here's a pic of her watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse... watching very intently :)

We've had a rough last few nights. Addie will wake up in the middle of the night, screaming and terrified. It's as though she's had nightmares and can't calm herself down. Then she looks around her room and seems to be scared of everything she sees. Has anyone gone through this? I didn't think it would happen until she was older, but it's been 4 out of the last 5 nights. Last night she was up every two hours, but she was running fever, so it must have been something different. I'm tired!!
That second pic is her looking at and saying "light." It's her new word. She's proud of herself :) I like this stage (besides for our rough evenings) because she's figuring out that everything has a name. So she points to things all the time and waits for me to tell her what it is. So cute!
