Today is our first day "flying solo." Addison and I have been hanging out today in the quiet house as Ben is at work again, Jay and Liz are very far away, and Mom went home to Norfolk on Saturday. We have been chilling. We took a walk to the local grocery store and bought coffee, watered the newly planted flowers in the yard, took a nap, visited with some friends that stopped by this afternoon. For the most part it has been great. . . except that Addie is cranky today. I think she misses everybody. I don't think she knows how cool I am to be around yet. And I think she has no memory. Just ponder this one - I would get cranky too if every time I was hungry I thought I was going to starve to death. I would be easily upset if I thought my poopy diaper was only going to increase in its poopiness. And I might not be consolable if I couldn't remember soft hands cleaning, soothing, patting away this overshadowing unhappy. So she kicks her pudgy feet and thrashes around with her mittened hands and gets 3 shades darker instantly. And since she is temporarily myopic, she can't even see the help that is coming. Hmmmm, Addison darling, I don't think you are alone in this one.
