Don’t call us, we’ll call you

More, more . . .

Isn’t putting a hungry baby to bed without food one of the saddest things ever?  The nurse said only clear liquids for the first twenty-four hours, so we tried to give her as much jello as she would tolerate.  But she walked around the kitchen pointing at any food item or empty bottle she could find, all the while whimpering and doing the baby sign for “more.”

Of course, Neal had it even worse than I since he let me sleep right through her 5:30 am wake-up when she once again went searching through the kitchen looking for “more” food.

From here (no, Addison didn’t suddenly grow a whole lot of dark hair)

But we consider ourselves amply blessed that our little one has not been sick very often and it has always passed quickly, including this time — she’s on the mend, on to the BRAT diet, and I’m back to my thesis.



  1. Oh sad face. But it’s so cute when they start signing! I think a video or pictures are in order 😉

  2. I loved the time when we communicated with Nathan through signs. It gets even cuter when they add little sounds like “mo” and the sign for more. Poor girl, I’m glad she’s on the mend.

  3. Oh, so sad! Glad she’s doing better though, and that you have such a clean house, and that you almost have a thesis draft!

  4. poor baby! I hope she gets feeling better soon! On the upside, I think it’s fantastic she can sign!

  5. She is probably silently cursing you for having cleaned the kitchen floor last week.
