First Driving lesson

Today Addison and I were taking a walk down our street and then we see John's car coming. Addison got all kinds of excited, she hadn't seen him yet today. Then she climbed into the car, on his lap and they took off. It was so cute, but the real lessons can wait a few more years.

I think Addison is officially over the binki, now we just need her to fall asleep on her own. We changed the crib into a toddler bed and she loves it. I sometimes find her just lying on it in the middle of the day. I hope she enjoys it, because in a wee she will be in a real bed.

I can't believe I'm moving next Saturday. I am starting to have mixed emotions about it have have to remind myself why we are doing it. It is also going to be hard to be away from John for so long. We have done it before, but never with kids. We are just praying the house sells really fast and he can get out to AZ with us.

A few things I am going to Miss

As I get ready to leave more and more thing come up that I realize I am going to miss.

~Fall. I won't be able to see it this year. I'm leaving a month too early.

~I love how even the weeds are pretty

~Walking down my street and seeing all the green

~Having an on call babysitter every Friday night

~Friends, of course, but more than any is Cammon. I have seen her almost every day for like a year and really hope they end up at ASU. She makes me want to cry like every day when she picks up Kelsie and says how much she is going to miss me.

~Seeing this kind of stuff in my yard at random time in the year

A little bit of Peace

Got this at a garage sale for Addison, Popo thinks its his
The best of friends share everything, even a cardboard box
A big tub of oatmeal, a couple of bowls and measuring cups = hours of entertainment

Day 2 and 3

No naps, Tylenol and lots of active play. That has been the last 2 days. Addison is actually taking it very well. She struggles for a little bit when we go to put her to bed, but I think she realizes that she would rather have me hold her then cry herself to sleep. During the day she really doesn't notice.

On moving, we are going to Casa Grande. Addison and I are leaving on Oct. 4th. John is going to stay until the house is sold and then come on out. Its going to be weird, but hopefully he will be able to get a lot more done on the house.

Bye Bye Binky

So yesterday we through away the binky. I decided to do this before the move (by the way, we are moving to AZ) and I don't have any kids to watch this week. I through them away one by one while Addison was watching, and crying for them, and said bye to each. I kept her super busy yesterday and she had no nap. By 7pm she was super tired, but we struggled until 10pm to get her to sleep. She has just been so attached to that thing. This morning she woke up at 6:45. So another day begins. I'll keep you posted.
