A weekend of 1st's....

It has been a crazy 24 hours since I came home from my last trip Friday afternoon and a weekend of 1st's!

For those of you who know me, know I am petrified of throwing up. Luckily, my whole pregnancy I managed to dodge the extreme morning sickness and luckily Addison has never been one to spit up her bottle. However, I was dreading the day that Addison would throw up because I knew it was bound to happen. Well, Friday was the day. CJ picked her up from school and when he went to pick her up, she threw up all over him and the floor. By the time he got her home, she was running a fever.

Gramma Pat's birthday but not feeling so hot :(
 I came home a few hours later and sure enough, little baby looked miserable and was running a fever of 101.5. I gave her her evening bottle and minutes later she projectile vomited her whole bottle on me. Luckily it was just her bottle (not real throw up), didn't have a horrible smell so I was fine. We cleaned her up, called the pediatrician who told us to give her some baby Tylenol and Pedialyte. If she kept that down, we wouldn't need to take her to the ER. She kept it down and off to bed we went, an hour later than normal, but nonetheless.

NO more Swaddle
Friday also happened to be the day that we were going to attempt no more swaddling at night. Our friend Bridget gave us the Magic Sleepsuit to try. This sleepsuit looks crazy, looks like a snow suit, but let me tell you, IT WORKS! From the website, "The Magic Sleepsuit™ is an innovative baby product that provides babies with a cozy, calming, and safe sleep environment. The Magic Sleepsuit is designed for babies who have become too big for swaddling, yet still need that warmth and contained feeling to aide in their sleep." 

We have had 2 successful nights in the sleepsuit and I am certain we will not be swaddling at night any longer. (She is still swaddled at school and during naptime because we can keep a close eye on her so she doesn't turn over on her belly and risk not being able to turn herself back over).

Magic Sleepsuit
CJ and I had our first adult night out without Addison. Her evening teacher at school, Stacey, agreed to babysit while we went to Shawn and Janelle's Engagement party at the Lynfred Winery in Roselle. It was a wonderful party and get together and I am hoping to convince CJ to attend their wedding in Jamaica next March (good birthday present, huh?)! We are looking forward to more dates and adult time now that we know we have a babysitter on hand!

Addison and Mommy had their first pedicure together on Sunday afternoon. She now has pretty pink toenails! We are certain her teachers at school will die of laughter because they have asked over and over again when we will paint her nails. She's so freaking cute, it's impossible to not love her!

1st Pedicure!
