There will be no pictures from Addyson's birthday party. Mostly because we didn't get to stay for the party. Minutes after we got there Kaycie got freaked out and started screaming. Greg and I spent 30 minutes trying to calm her down in the back room, but she wasn't having it. She wailed until we put her in the car and then promptly passed out. When we got her home she woke up the happiest baby you've ever seen. Sigh.

I don't know what was up with her, Addyson had walked over to her and was being sweet, but may have scared her. There were also a lot of people there and the noise level was getting pretty high for a minute there, so that could have freaked her out. She's not used to being around that much noise. And I wasn't holding her at the time, Jen's mom had her, so it could just be the combination of unusual activities got to her.

Anyway, I'm very very sad that I missed it. I'd been looking forward to it all week. I never get to see Addyson anymore, since I usually see Jen at lunch. And Jen's parents have only gotten to see Kaycie once, right before Christmas. Jen's in-laws hadn't seen her at all. I'm sure they all think she's a psycho baby now.

Oh! I'm so sorry. That's something they never warn new parents about - the unpredictability of kids.

Poor baby. She'll have those "episodes" occasionally so get used to it. She's just a typical baby though. And she is so beautiful. I love seeing her pics.

If she'd done it in Walmart I wouldn't have cared much. Did she have to do it at Addyson's party??? I'd soooo been looking forward to being there!

look, i KNOW how you feel. the diva would do this kind of thing ALL the time. we spent a new year's eve in the ER when she was a year old because she wouldn't stop crying and writhing around on the floor, appearing to be in pain. they ran a ton of tests and could never figure out what was wrong with her. they sent us home after three hours. two hours after we got home, she just stopped screaming. i thought i was going to lose my mind. it was NUTS!!!

just pray...that's what i did, and i still do. my child is very moody. we take the good with the bad, but up until about 6 months ago, it kept us from doing a lot of things socially. i feel your pain...really, i do, but it does get better.
