We were up and at 'em early again this morning, though, and off to Grants Mill Road for church. It's a trek for us, but we are always so happy to be there. Unfortunately, we had to make an early exit, since Adelyn pitched one of her famous "polka-dotted fits" in the nursery. It doesn't happen very often, but she didn't get her mid-morning nap today, so it caught up with her right in the middle of the service. Our sweet girl is rarely ever fussy. The only time she really fusses is when she is sleepy. We have made it through shots and stuffy noses (but she's never really been sick) and even six teeth (Yes, SIX!!! More on that later.) without so much as a slight change in her usual cheerful disposition... But let her get sleepy, and she will let you know about it! And that is when we usually encounter what we call the "polka-dotted fit". We call it that because when she has one, she gets red spots all over her head. I've never seen anything like it, but then again, this is my first child, so maybe it's common. So when I got to the nursery to pick her up from the poor sweet lady who was trying to calm her down, she was polka-dotted and crying. She was asleep by the time we were five miles down the road.
After lunch, I took the rare opportunity to take a nap! And it was glorious! Just what I needed. Adelyn also took a good long nap--almost 2 hours--and Tyler watched some NCAA basketball. Actually, I started out watching basketball, too, but the couch was so comfy, and our Duke University throw is so cozy... I woke up just in time to see Duke finish off Michigan, and THEN... We went for a walk! I love this time of year for the wonderful walking weather!
We made Adelyn a bottle, loaded her up in her stroller, and headed out to enjoy some fresh air. She fed herself while we made our way down Doss Ferry Lane and walked inside some of the new houses they are building in our neighborhood. Tyler and I have always LOVED house-looking. (I know that's not necessarily what it's called... I think I just made it up.) So we always like to keep an eye on the progress that's going on in the new neighborhood houses.
By the time we were finished looking at houses, Adelyn was finished with her bottle, and we headed to the playground! Of course, the first stop was the swing. She loves the swing! I know I have posted pictures of her swinging before, but she is always so happy that I just have to take lots of pictures when she swings!
