Our summer life

So, here I am. I am finally blogging from Nebraska. We have been having a great time and have been doing a lot of swimming. Our summer life is good.

Addilyn and I came to Nebraska on June 30th. We traveled with my parents so I had a lot of help. It went very well. I was nervous about having warm water for her formula but I was able to travel with two thermos' of water, which really helped. I held Addilyn during take-off and landing and held her while she played and ate, but when she slept, she slept in her own bassinet. The bassinet was attached to the wall in the airplane directly in front of us. When she was in it, there was a flap that went over it and snapped into place in case of turbulence. It was really smooth. She slept about five of the ten hours. The other five hours she was pretty happy flirting with those around us, playing or eating. She did great on her first airplane ride! By the time we made it to Georgia, my poor girl was just exhausted. She slept a little, ate and then conked out until Nebraska.

Funny story about that flight. I switched places with my dad in the plane so I could be by my mom for help and the flight attendant said I had to go to my original spot because there wasn't an oxygen mask there for a third person. As we were moving, another flight attendant walked back saying my name. He was looking for me so I could move up to first class. I said, "Yes please!" And I left my parents in the back. After that flight, Addilyn woke up to eat and then began the car ride, luckily she was out for the night. Shew, that was a lot of information!

We had about three nights of bad sleeping. She woke up from 2:30 to 4:30 the first three nights but after that went right back to her schedule, for the most part. Naps are still tough now and she falls asleep during her last bottle of the night but we are managing and she is still super happy so she must be getting enough sleep. So, onto our vacation.

Addilyn stood on U.S. soil for the first time in her life. I was one pround momma.

Addilyn and I went to Kearney for a weekend. We had a lot of fun with the Kohtz family. She also did some firsts there!

Addilyn has been doing a lot of scooting, backwards. I think crawling is coming very soon! She has also found her toes and can nearly sit up on her own. She is changing so much! I am enjoying this time with her tremendously!


So, I think that is all I can do for this evening. I will get back to this tomorrow or later this evening! Trust me, there are many more adorable pictures of our sweet little Addilyn and some of Thomas and I.


Oh yes, the day before we came to the United States, Addilyn went swimming in her new swimming pool!
