Month-to-Month Photos
Monday, June 30th, 2008

I figured I’d better post a few pictures of little Addie, since that’s why some of you even visit this blog. I’ve seen people take photos of babies every month next to a stuffed animal to measure how they grow. And since Grandpa Knight gave me a Snoopy stuffed toy for Christmas (I assumed it […]

I Dream of…
Saturday, June 28th, 2008

Running. Literally. Two or three of my dreams in the last week have been about running. Before any dream analysts say that means I must want to escape my life, I’ll say that these aren’t the kind of dreams where I’m trying to run but can’t.

Addies loves driving in the […]

Sleeping Baby and “The Birth Story”
Monday, June 2nd, 2008

This is what Addie looks like most of the time. Except for yesterday, when she screamed for a few hours, and wouldn’t sleep (unless she was on my lap). When I was at my wits’ end, I remembered this story I read where this woman had a screaming baby, and she finally discovered that he […]
