More from our Culpeper visit...

Addie and Nathanial eating breakfast one morning. They got a long really well together, and Addie just followed him around like a little puppy dog. One night we threw all three babies in the tub together...what a hoot! There was more water outside the tub and on us than in the tub itself!


Addie is now at the age where she knows how to work the system, and when I say system, I mean Mommy and Daddy. From day one, she has always slept in her crib. She never took to a bassinet or cosleeper or anything like that. She did just fine in her own bed, and Tim and I were able to sleep much better with her in her own room. This was probably only made possible by the nice camera baby moniter that Tim's parents gave us at our baby shower. We can keep an eye on her wherever we are and don't really need to have her right beside us to have peace of mind. Now? She knows that we are sleeping right across the hall from her, and she wants to be with us. She'll go down in her crib, but lately has woken up several hours later, calling our names under the saddest little cries you have ever heard. She will cry like that for what seems like an eternity, so against our better judement, she has ended up in between us the last few nights, sleeping peacefully with a little smile on her face! What are we thinking? We have done so good until now...

I understand that dilema all too well! Claire is still sleeping with Jason and I and has for the last 6-8 months. It started when she got the flu last year and we never got her back to her own bed. What is a parent to do???
