The Princess and the P (for pacifier)

So Calista gave us two really good weeks of sleep, barely waking up, feeding and falling right back to sleep. Iknow the last thing you want to do is hear about me complain about lack of sleep, but now miss fussy pants feels like she can be awake and use me for her pacifier. I've tried all the tricks and two different styles of pacifiers and (sigh) i need more sleep than 3 broken hours for the third night in a row. Christopher never took a paci or bottle, but i don't remember having such a hard time getting him to settle back down. My other two boys I trained to take the pacifier. Ok, that's all the whining. I'll just try a couple of more styles and hope that something takes. I guess that's why there's so many kinds out there.
Anyway, to catch you up on what we've been doing since she was born:
Day 3: released from hospital
Day 5: walked around Mt. Vernon
Day 6: downtown to see White House and Memorials
Day 7: downtown to see Museums
Day 9 and 10: Kings Dominion Amusement Park
Day 11: Memorial Day BBQ

So maybe this hanging around the house is not exciting enough for her. Is she going to be a whirlwind, fly-by-the-seat-of-her-pants (what does that actually mean?) kind of girl like her momma? We'll see! Anyway here are a few pictures of our adventures! Enjoy
