Meet the twins!!!

These are Adalyn's cousins and they were born 10 days after her, so this post is long overdue. The first picture is a day we went to meet them while I was still on maternity leave. Harrison is the little boy in the picture and when he saw Adalyn laying on the couch he said "Wow! She's a big one!" Too cute...you never know what kids will say and she did look bigger compared to the twins. They are beautiful healthy little girls--Susannah Belle and Jacqueline Elaine.

We spent the day visiting and eventually went for a walk. We had all three babies lined up in strollers and at one point all three babies were crying. I have a video of this that I'd like to post but I'll have to save that for another day. I tried taking pictures of them all, but at least 1 of the 3 was crying every time I tried. Plus, one month old babies don't pose!

RIP Sweety

I don't remember the date but one of my cockatiels died a few weeks before Christmas. This was the bird that was the less grouchy out of the two and would actually "sing" and whistle to us. We were trying to get rid of the birds (still have one if anyone is interested), but it was still sad.

I'm waaaay behind--here are Halloween pictures!!

We didn't do much for Halloween this year. We went to a fall festival at my brother and sister in law's church then went to Gigi and Pop's house. It has hard to find a costume for a 2 month old baby--everything was huge on her. She had a pumpkin costume, but I think this pumpkin onesie and hat from Aunt Randi and Uncle Travis was just too cute.

I never knew...

I never knew how painful shots could be until this afternoon when I watched my baby girl get her first shots (one in each leg). It's crazy how something could hurt me so much when I didn't even get a stick! The bad thing is that they were out of one of the vaccines so I have to call during November and take her back once they get more in. I think Dad may get stuck with that job.

Count Down

The count down to my return to work has really kicked into high gear. I only have about a day and a half before the big day. I'm very thankful to my friends Lori Cheatham, Joslyn Johnson and my mother in law Ruth for watching her until we get a spot in the daycare. I think starting out with friends rathter than daycare will actually make the transition back into the real world a little easier. If you see me Thursday and I seem a little weird--you know what the problem is. I'm hoping I can at least make it through the day at work with no tears and I'm sure Lori is already expecting to hear from me at least a few times throughout that first day :-)

I did call the daycare yesterday and she is at the top of the waiting list. I know this is a good daycare but I can't help but having images of her laying in a crib for hours at a time--only getting attention when she cries!! I'm sure this will change once we get her in and start interacting with the staff on a daily basis. Luckily for me (unlucky for daddy) he will be dropping her off most days as I have to leave earlier than he does.

new camera--big smiles

I got a new camera over the weekend--check out the big smiles I caught while taking my first few pictures with it!

Camera troubles

We got about 200 (not kidding) pictures developed earlier this week. Apparently, my 10 megapixel digital camera is excellent at taking pictures of adults who sit still, but not so good at taking pictures of squirmy babies. I'm on a mission to convince my husband that I need a new camera to capture all these adorable pictures we're missing now :-)

Any info anyone can provide would be great--I don't need to completely break the bank, but I do want something that is quick!

New doo's at the treadway house--MOHAWKS for dad and daughter :-)

So, today I was going to give Chandler a haircut. He was going to "get things ready" while I finished up something in the dining room. I should have known it was taking too long and he was being too quiet. A few minutes later he comes trotting out with a mohawk so he posed for some pics--he knew I'd have to post it on the blog!

Don't worry--he's back to normal now, but it reminded me of some pictures I took Adalyn a few days ago. Somehow the mohawk looked much better on her :-)

1 month appointment

Adalyn had her 1 month appointment today. She weighs 8'13"!!

She has been a little fussy lately and it seems like any time she is awake she is crying, so I don't have any new good pictures. I'm posting a picture that our friend Clint took back on the 10th.

Just hanging out bein' cute

Hanging out with dad!
Getting ready for our first walk around the neighborhood
Bed time!

Bath time!!

We gave Adalyn her first bath in her new froggy bath tub last night. We umbilical cord stump finally fell off so we thought we would give it a try. As you can see from the pictures she wasn't too excited about the big event.

Follow up

I had my follow up with Dr. Edwards today--he released me to drive and lift things heavier than the baby!! Even though I haven't driven anywhere yet it is definately nice to know that I can.

Chandler has one more day of work and will be off for his second week of leave starting Wednesday.

Monday, September 1, 2008


Adalyn has been added to the St. Bernards website. I just wanted to remind everyone that it will be under Sharon T.--gotta love going by your middle name! Chandler is the videographer and I'm the photographer.
We are doing good. She seems to have her days and nights mixed up. We thank everyone for the calls and visits!!

We have circles on the wall!

Tuesday is the big day!

We just got done with our doctors appointment and Dr. Edwards is going to induce me Tuesday morning!! I have to be at the hospital at 6 AM to get started! I was dialated to 2. He did say she was still a little high, but he didn't think it would be a problem.

Of course everyone is really excited--including me. However, I am also scared to death. I'm going to try to keep myself busy without burning a lot of energy this weekend so I don't sit around and make myself even more nervous.

My dad is extra excited as Tuesday is also his birthday, so Adalyn will share her birthday with her Grandpa.

Brother John

I just wanted to let everyone know that Brother John (Chandler, Aaron and Jason's band) will be playing at Caffe Buono tomorrow night at 7:30 if anyone is interested we'd love to have you come by.

Ultrasound pictures

She loves to keep her little arm in front of her face. The shots where it is moved were taken very quickly because she doesn't keep it away long! The doctor said she weighs about 6 lbs 7 oz as of last Wednesday and I'm dialated about 1 centimeter. He said it looks like she has a lot of hair

Smile Addie Grace!!

We got Adalyn's name on the wall this afternoon! Thanks to Aunt Randi for the adorable letters--they really add a lot to the room!

Baby Treadway's Official Name!

We decided on Adalyn Grace.

Sorry Julie--hadn't looked at the comments on my voting post in awhile!

Captain Harrison's Pirate Birthday Party!

Our cousin Harrison is turning 4 and he celebrated in style last Saturday. I thouht I would post some pics from his party--it was all really fun and you can see that several (Dad, Uncle Caleb, Papaw and uncle Chandler) enjoyed dressing up! To the left, Harrison is getting ready to tackle the pinata. On the right Chandler has been defeated by one of Harrison's tough pirate friends!

Adalyn's room

We are almost done with the nursery. We are waiting on our glider rocker to come before we decide for sure if we have the furniture exactly how we want it. Once this is decided we have the circle decals to put on the wall. I only have a few pictures...it is a bit of a mess back there right now so I don't want to take any more until we get a little more organized. Also, I've started my weekly doctor visits now. I am very slightly dialated and get my last ultrasound next week!

More voting!!

We have finalized the name--now we just can't decide on the spelling...plus I like getting everyone's opinion. The name is Addalyn, Adalynn or Adalyn Grace. I love Amy's idea of Addie Grace!! How would you spell her first name?

By the way, I had a dr appointment yesterday and everything was fine. We get another ultrasound in 3 weeks!!!

This is another photo that John Adamson took!!
The baby bedding should be in Tuesday. This is a picture of what we hope the room looks like when we get done!! I hope that Chandler can paint next weekend...we have the furniture and everything ready to move in once the painting is done!!

Finding a pediatrician

I thought I would open up my blog for suggestions on finding a pediatrician. I've kinda let this slip up on me--let me know who you use and why you love them!!

Did you have a "getting to know you" meeting beforehand and what questions did you ask--or things you wish you would have asked.

I have lots of questions and don't really know where to start.

Vote for our baby name

Ok, so I'm stealing Amy's idea and going to have everyone vote for their favorite baby name. We are still stuck between Allie Grace and Addalyn Bailey. No guarantees here--we are just curious to see what everyone thinks. Leave us a comment and let us know!!

32 Weeks!!

Can you believe it?? Only 8 weeks left!! I had a dr appointment this morning and everything was fine...Her heart beat was 144.

I'm hoping her nursery furniture will be in by next weekend and the bedding should be here around that time. I'll post pictures once we get the nursery completed.

I got a new doo today...I love getting haircuts but I don't get them often!! They are sooo expensive (and I'm so cheap) that I don't get them often. If I am going to spend that much money on my hair I don't want to just go get a trim--it has be a dramatic change for me to feel like I'm getting my moneys worth. I'll try to post a pic, but I am not really sure how to work all of this yet so it may take me a few trys. Well, the trouble starts with taking a picture I like enough for the world to see.

I'll give it a whirl!!

I thought I would give in and try blogging. I'm not good at these things--ask Randi--I never even know what to write on a greeting card. How am I supposed to spill my guts here? We'll see!! Maybe with baby things I won't bore everyone to tears.
