We're ready for spring!

I am just now getting caught up on the blog because we have been preoccupied with a sick baby...again!!! I breastfed her for almost 7 months and she is currently in a small daycare so we are surprised she has been this sick. Everyone around us says that the first winter is the worst. Addie began getting sick during the beginning of the week. We called the pediatrician on Wed. and they said not to bring her in because she didn't have a fever. She had a nose running like a faucet, a cough, no appetite and more. It wasn't any better by Saturday morning so I took her to the doctor. She has an upper respiratory infection and double ear infection! Poor thing! She is definitely on the mend now. We feel so bad for her when she is this sick. Addie hasn't been sleeping well because she can hardly breathe. We have been frustrated this winter, but at the same time we realize that there are so many other babies in the world that are in much worse shape so we really can't complain.

Two weekends ago we hung out with Jamie, Derek, Blake, Tracy and their daughter, Alena. Sadie also had a playdate with Jamie and Derek's dog, Benz. Addie is a very social baby and doesn't mind being passed around to anyone. For whatever reason she does not like Jamie. We have gotten together several times over the past couple of months and Addie always ends up crying when Jamie tries holding her. It's very weird!

I had a great week two weeks ago because I got to see "Wicked" for free at my work during business hours (very rare!) and it was amazing! I recommend the show to anyone! I also got a massage over the weekend! Jeremy got me a gift card for our anniversary and I just now got around to using it. Tell me why I waited so long???

This past weekend we got together with our friends (and my boss) Heather and Peter and their daughter, Emma. Emma started at Addie's daycare this week so we are excited that they will play together daily.

Saturday was my mom's birthday so we met my parents for dinner at Huber's. She did great despite not feeling well at all. Addie put two words together and said "Bye baby" while waving when a baby in the restaurant was leaving. It was two cute.

On Sunday I went to a baby shower for Jenny (our sister-in-law). We are so excited to meet our new newphew, Layton. He'll be making his grand entrance into the world at the beginning of March (if not sooner). :)

Addie also now says "hi" and "Sadie". We always thought Sadie would be her first word. It actually sounds like "Dadie" but we know that is what she is trying to say because she'll be crawling towards Sadie saying "Dadie, dadie, dadie." It's amazing to think about how much she has grown in less than a year!

Have a wonderful week! Enjoy a historical day tomorrow! Stay warm!

Look at Addie's cute sweater! Aunt Tiffany gave it to her for Christmas! You can tell in her eyes she wasn't feeling great. You can also tell how much her hair is growing in.
