TooFless No More

Drum roll please......Adelyn has not one but two teeth!!! The first one broke through yesterday and the 2nd today. I want to cry! If you look really closely you can see the little bumps.

A Day in the Life

Well, I know I say it every time, but I can not believe how quickly Adelyn is growing & changing! She is 51/2 months old and I feel like there are days when she changes between naps. One of the sweetest things she does now is give kisses. They're a little wet but I love them! It's not too exciting but a typical day for us looks a little like this... Sleeping. Adelyn is doing a great job of sleeping through the night again & I am so glad. We had about a month where she digressed and was getting up once a night to eat. For some reason those weeks were harder for me than when she was first born. I need sleep! She's also making the transition into being awake for longer between naps and then sleeping longer during naps. This morning she slept for 2 1/2 hrs. I don't know why but for some reason that morning nap is the most important of all.

Eating. Cereal is a new development. We're on the 4th day & Adelyn still doesn't get that you open your mouth & the spoon goes in. She's not really a fan of it but doesn't cry in protest or clamp her jaw shut either. So we'll keep trying.
Playing. Adelyn is so good at rolling & tummy time now. She is also obsessed with feet. Hers, mine, yours, it doesn't matter. All I have to do is wiggle my toes and she laughs. She loves to go for walks and has taken a sudden interest in other people. While David & Elaine were here we went to Downtown Disney one afternoon. Adelyn squealed in delight at getting to see so many people. She also squealed in delight as we walked into Bloomingdale's the other day. I was so proud. ; )

We do have some pretty exciting days too. Last week we got to see the Wildcats play in the SEC Tournament. Sadly, they lost but Adelyn still had fun at her first UK game. On Sunday we got to watch the Shuttle Launch with Uncle Ryan.

Mimi & Grandpa Come to Visit

Adelyn had lots of fun playing with Mimi & Grandpa when they came to visit. Here are a few pictures from the week.
Check out the pretty quilt that Mimi made for Adelyn. Adelyn & Grandpa spent lots of time swinging and going for walks.

One afternoon we had lunch in Winter Park and went on the Boat Tour

Adelyn thought it was awfully relaxing.
