Playing Chase

I would love to have spent this last week and a half posting about all of the cute things Mais has been doing, but I have been spending every waking minute chasing her around. She totally started taking off this week, both crawling and cruising furniture. She's been scooting around here and there for a while, but now she is sneaky and quick. She has been so cute lately with her new gellie shoes that her daddy bought her and with her one little tooth she has on the bottom, and with all of the kisses she has been giving. But, she hasn't been sleeping well at all! I am sure it has something to do with the teething, but she has been waking up 2-4 times a night and only sleeping like 8 hours at night with 2 short 20 minute naps during the day! This is quite a big adjustment from when we lived in Provo and she was sleeping 12-13 hours a night with out waking up! I sure do miss those days! Anyway, if any of you have any tips on how to deal with this sleep problem, or should I say lack of sleep problem, feel free to send them my way!

As far as other news goes...

My mom and I took Maisey with us to get our haircuts this week! Maisey was being so dang cute and she wanted to get her hair cut too. Daddy said no because she doesn't have much to cut! Maybe one day Mais! (Also, she is wearing her new gellies that Daddy picked out!)

"Look Mom, No Hands!"
My cousin's little girl, Madi, has this pink Barbie Power Wheel. It is Maisey's new best friend (especially now that she doesn't play with Tori). She is getting to be pretty brave on it! I took this picture and the video below on my cell phone so the quality isn't the best, but she has been so funny on it so I had to post them.

In the video below, Maisey learned how to push the button all by her self. She pushes it for 2 seconds and then she stops and claps for her self. She is so silly!

So, that's the latest! Shaun's sister is coming tonight to stay with us until Friday, then we are headed up to Spokane to visit the fam! It should be a busy and fun weekend!

Maisey is such a doll!!! It is always so fun to watch them grow. For the advice on sleeping through the night, I don't really have any to give because none of my kids slept through the night until they were two. With teething, my kids favorite thing was to chew on otter pops that weren't open. Then we'd refreeze them. It gave a little relief. Good luck!!!

tylenol every 6 hours, motrin every 6 hours overlapping them. 7pm tylenol, at 10pm motrin, at 1am tylenol, at 4am motrin...thats only if you want to get up rather than be woken up but because they're different you can overlap them and the concocktion (sp?) is pretty powerful. Our doctors have given us this regiment and it works great! besides if you time it right, you can give the last dose at about 11 or 12 at night and the stuff lasts 6 hours so you're good until 5 or 6 in the morning! Good luck.

She is so so cute!! i cant believe she is crawling. We gave Ella some teething tablets that dissolve in her mouth and they worked good. I am a huge fan of letting the baby cry it out. after they are fed, tylenol etc, they shouldnt have to wake up. Ella sleeps from 7pm till 830 am and it is awesome.
