Time flies when your sleep deprived :)


The girl can work a frown.

Addison is a good baby. She has her moments but don't we all. She still sleeps quite a bit and is starting to eat like a little piggy. Her 0-3 month clothes are fitting her well now and she may finally outgrow her newborn stuff soon. She eat 6x/day and sometimes sleeps through the night. She still likes to tease me and sleep til 8 one morning and then spends the next 3 nights waking at 3 a.m. I am not complaining though because I will take the sleep whenever I can get it. She LOVES to be held and is easily calmed as long as you pick her up. She enjoys her baby carrier when we go for walks and sleeps the whole time. We call her Addie a lot and I tend to refer to her as "Adds" from time to time. I call her stinkerbell sometimes too but Eli doesn't like it and he assures me that that is NOT her name.


Health wise she is doing quite well. Our current concern is her hearing. She did not pass her first hearing screen. The 2nd one she did not pass either but she had fluid behind the ear drum so that could have caused her to fail. We have another appointment with another specialist in 2 weeks and hope to find out exactly what we are dealing with. We are praying the fluid is causing her lack of response to sounds but we are also prepared for it being something more. With all that we were up against with this little one we feel blesed to have her and will face whatever challenges lie ahead knowing God will sustain us.


We are in love with this girl and although she has turned our world upside down for the past year we plan to keep her. :)

****Oops almost forgot, she weighs 8 lbs. 5 oz. Yay!!!

Congrats on Addison's weight gain! I'm hoping there is no issue with her hearing. Just another thing to worry about. Try not to.
