Connor and Addison both got sick the day before Thanksgiving. They both seemed to have the same cold symptoms, but Connor knows how to handle a stuffy/runny nose. Addison does not. That's right, this was Addison's first time being sick and she had no idea what to make of it. She absolutely hates you wiping her nose. Or using the bulb to suck the mucus out of it. She also falls asleep sucking on her fist which requires nose breathing...which she could no longer do....which also meant rough nights. You can tell she is sick when you look at the pictures. Poor baby. We were dreading the 2 1/2 hour car ride to Waldo. It ended up not being too bad. Or maybe we're just used to her crying for 45 min at a time. Either way we were happy to get out of the car. Thankfully traffic wasn't too bad. We didn't need another reason to be in the car longer than necessary.
Thanksgiving was great. Bebe cooked all the traditional fixings. Connor's handmade place cards were a hit. There were 13 of us all together! It was great to see all of my family. We don't always get to see one another so it was great everyone was in town, not working and able to spend the evening together.
Grandpa got our old aluminum boat in working order just for Connor. We knew he would LOVE to go on a boat ride and maybe even get a chance to "drive" himself. The first day they got out to try it it wouldn't start :( John still took him out but they didn't go far as he had to use the oars. Grandpa figured out the issue so they gave it another whirl the following day. This time it started up and Connor got to go out on his boat. We watched from the dock but we knew right away when Connor was driving. It was when the boat started going in circles. He had a blast!
I won't mention the FL/FSU game. John was happy. Enough said. Another fun thing Connor would do over the weekend was get on the treadmill with Bebe. The first time he got on was right after bath time. While he was still naked. It was hilarious!
Lastly, Addison started crawling over Thanksgiving weekend! On the day she turned 8 months to be exact :) It's so exciting, she's looked like she was going to take off for months now. She is slow at it and only goes a short distance but we know it won't be long before she is zipping around the house. I'll work on getting a video posted soon.
