Sorry for the lack of blog post lately, I have been feeling uninspired. See, usually I have a post or two rambling around in my head. I have had the posts in my head, but no inspiration to actually type them out. Here is a brief update on our family:

Addilyn- Is now 7 months old, which totally blows my mind. She is a fine sleeper during the day, but then night hits and she can't seem to figure it out. The child still won't eat baby food. I have a grinder and smash anything she can't gum. She eats everything we do, from pasta with Italian sausage to fruit to corn on the cob. She sits really well and has started rocking back and forth on her hands and knees. She babbles, coos, and giggles. She is the sweetest baby who loves to cuddle. I am thrilled that she is a mama's girl, since Elie is, and always has been, all about papa.

Elie- This child makes me laugh every day. She is over all very well behaved and has an amazing imagination.We recently saw a pincher bug, so Elie has been pretending to be that bug. She crawls around and backs up to you leg and "pinches" you with her butt while saying "PINCH". Its the funniest thing ever. I am so glad she is out of diapers, when I think of having to change two kids everyday, I know I am lucky! Last week we gave binky to the binky fairy in exchange for chocolate. She has done great, only a few rough moments. Right now we all have a cold. Elie loves to help me take care of Addie. The other day she came upstairs and said she needed a wipe. I asked why and she said because Addilyn had a messy face. I asked if she had spit up, Elie said no, she had been feeding her brownie. That's just great, exactly what the baby need, chocolate.

Matt- Is traveling a ton. He will be out of town for about 6 weeks straight, home only for long weekend. He hates it, I hate it, Elie really hates it.

Me- I am tired. Between a husband who travels way two much and a baby who sleeps way too little, I need a vacation and a massage. I joined a gym, which, if you know me at all, you know is crazy because I hate to exercise. The gym has childcare and a hot tub, need I say more?
