6mths~sitting up~cutting teeth!!!



When I last posted about Addie's 6mth check-up, she was teething and almost sitting up on her own. Well, she has since cut two bottom teeth and is now sitting up well on her own. She loves to sit up and play with her toys! Something else that she loves is her jumparoo. We've been putting her in the saucer since she hasn't been able to touch in the jumparoo. Now, she can touch and loves it! Several weeks ago, I came home from work and Scott was playing with Addie(he keeps her 2days a week). He said watch what Addie can do now. He put her in the jumparoo and she started jumping and having a ball. It was too funny:)

I had also written before about Addison waking up during the night @ about 5 1/2 mths. Thought it was just habit, but later found out it was the beginning of the teething process. It wasn't too bad then. You cld feed her a little or pat her bottom to get her back to sleep. That lasted til around 6 mths or so. She later cut the two bottom teeth and started sleeping thru the night again. That lasted a few weeks until now. About a week ago, she did fine thru the night, but was cranky during the day...not like her at all! Not too much was making her happy. I assumed it was the teething...u can always blame it on that!LOL Even the babysitter noticed the difference. Anyway, for the past few nights, she has been waking again. A few nights ago, it was just restless sleeping and seemed ok. The next night, it was pretty much the same thing, but got more sleep that night. Last night, it was horrible!!! She hasn't cried this much since she was 3 months old with reflux! Of course, Scott was at work and I was home by myself. It started around 9:30 and continued on and off til about 3:00 that morning. Nothing really works when she's that upset. She finally stopped crying and went back to sleep after another dose of Tylenol and some teething gel...that's when Scott walked in after it was all over! I noticed a bit more of her whites showing this morning so I guess they were cutting through more. She's done fine today so I'm hoping the worst is over until next time:) If anyone has any suggestions besides the norm, please LET ME KNOW!!!
She's having her 6mth pics done on Monday so I'll be posting them soon!

Here's a video of Addie in her jumparoo

Here are a few of my favorite pics of her sitting up...
This is when we first realized she could do it.


She looks so cute in her outfit and new bow.


This was taken at Mrs. Kelly's house.


These were taken last weekend at Nana's house.

Daddy's Little Girl!!!

Over the weekend, Scott, Addie and I headed to Wal-Mart. I dressed her in jean overalls and a green shirt. Scott had his green on too. While I was getting ready, Scott and Addie were sitting on the bed watching TV. Everyone says she looks like her Daddy, but this picture REALLY shows it...hair line and all! Of course I had to get pictures;-)...Believe it or not, she looks a lot like me too when I was about 6mths old.





Here are a couple other pics that I thought were cute:) No more SUPERMAN...she's gotten the hang of it!





Update... When we took her for her check up a couple of weeks ago, doc said she was probably teething. She hasn't been cranky, but she's been waking at night. Also running low fever, runny nose and pulling at her ear. Anyway, he said give it about a month and you'll probably see teeth. Well, he was right! Scott thought earlier today that he felt something. Later on, I was noticing some redness and felt too. It was definitely the little tops of her two bottom teeth! My baby is getting so big!

6mth check-up!!!


Wow...can't believe my little Addie Grace is already 6 months old! She had her check-up on Monday and he said she looked great. She weighed 19lbs and was 28 inches long...off the charts(90th percentile)! He said she's definintely long for her age...takes after her mommy;-}


She's been having some sleeping issues over the past month or so and we thought it might be due to teething. The doc said she hasn't cut them yet, but is probably teething. He said it could also be her use to waking at a certain time. Guess we'll see. She's still rolling over and almost sitting up on her own. It won't be long! Here are a few pics I took the other day.
