Yesterday was a bittersweet day. We went to the lake for our last walk :( of the year, I'm sure. It was so beautiful, about 68 degrees and sunny. :) Addy was very good for the first 2 miles out of 3.7. Then she wanted to be held. By that point I was exhausted, and really didn't feel like carrying an extra 15lbs and pushing the stroller. I was able to get her back in after about half a mile, and we finished the walk. The rest of the day was pretty normal. We got Addy's 6mo. pics in the mail-they are sooooo cute!! Then, I took Addy and Toby out for a short walk in the afternoon, and the neighbor lady came out of her house, so we stopped to talk. Of course, I only put Toby's collar on, not his harness since we weren't going very far, and when we stopped to talk, he slipped out of the leash. He ran around the front yard a little bit, then Jera caught him, and we were able to go back inside. What a trouble doggy!!
Today, we tried bananas with Addy for the first time. She only sort of liked them, I'm not sure. They sure do smell bad though, I wouldn't blame her if she didn't like them. We cleaned the house today and rearranged furniture in the basement, again. I think we finally have it set up the way we want now. After Addy ate dinner, we were trying to eat dinner and gave her some celery for her gums. Well, we can't do that anymore. Now she can get little pieces of it off, with her sharp little tooth. We'll have to stick with graham crackers.
Addy is definitely getting to be a big girl now. We have weaned her off her swaddler as of this week. She is also sleeping through the night again, after a few nights of waking up during the middle of the night. Thankfully, all we had to do is give her a pacifier to get her to go back to sleep, but it still is nice not to have that anymore. The past 3 days, we have been giving her medicine only at night for her tummy, and it seems to be working just fine. Maybe someday we'll be able to take her off of it altogether! I also haven't had to give her tylenol the past 2 nights, her teeth seem to be hurting less. She didn't want her paci all day either, and it does seem like her whole tooth has broken the surface now, although it's still pretty hard to see.
And now, an extra special treat. Here is a video from last weekend, when we let Addy play with her Christmas toy, while it is still in the box. Just a preview of what Christmas will be like now!!! I can't stop watching it, it's so funny!
