Week 46

Week 46 was the week of our First Christmas as a family!!
Addyson really had a great time all weekend and got lots of fun presents. Sorry for all the pictures and videos, trust me not all of them made it on here.
Merry Christmas to you all!!!!
Jeff, Addyson, and Kyley at G&G Brands for Xmas.
Addyson doing her, it wasn't me pose.
Addyson opening her first gift at our house Christmas morning.
She got a puzzle with animal shapes on it. She was such a good time to watch open gifts.
Addyson got a doll and stroller, amazingly enough she was able to start walking around with it right away, a little wobbly, but still able to be mobile.
Great Grandma Reed at our house for the Reed Family Christmas.
Grandma gave her a candy-cane taste, as you can see it on her face.
Addyosn walking with her stroller, too cute.
She was so proud to walk around all my herself.
Addyson got a camouflage sweatshirt, so she can go deer hunting with Dad and Grandpa Ivan.
Opening gifts and wondering what is inside.
This was a funny picture getting ready to Brand Xmas.
We just got out of the tub, and she let us see those teefers!!!
Excited for Christmas!!!
This was a video of Addyson and Kyley walking around the house pushing/pulling the basket. video
She is pushing the stoller again, Addyson in action.

Week 45

Addyson is 45 weeks old, wow!!
She still has some teeth coming in, which explains the drool on her shirt.
Be sure to check out our xmas video.
Click on the expand button in the video to see full screen!!
Addyson had her daycare christmas party on Friday. Santa came and the kids had a little gift exchange between them. They also made us a christmas ornament with her Addyson's hand print in it. Here are some of the kids eating snacks.

Addyson with Santa, she wasn't really amused by it all, but did a pretty good job.
She learned peek-a-boo behind the table. Pretty fun asking "where is Addyson" and she pops up from behind the table, we could do it all day!
more peek-a-boo!
she laugh's and gigles when she pops up.
She was playing in a box at the house, and was hiding in it.
Pretty easily entertained, both her and us!
Just a short video of Addyson playing in the box.

Week 44

Week 44 has brought us joy with all the new and fun things we have going on.
Addyson is crawling quite a bit more and getting more adventurous around the house. Thankfully she really isn't getting into too much trouble...knock on wood.
So far she enjoys crawling to any piece of furniture and then pulling herself up. This weekend she started to play peek-a-boo with anyone around. It is really quite entertaining and she thinks she is big stuff! There is a video below - enjoy!
Addyson has also been improving her dance moves. This weekend we have been listening to more music than normal and she beebops right along with it. So far she doesn't have a favorite yet. The Chimpmunk Christmas song is near the top though - who doens't love Alvin!
She also has quite a few more teeth. She still just has 2 on the bottom. On the top she has one pretty much all the way through, one about half way through and then another started. She is a little bit cranky with teething but overall we cannot complain - she is one happy baby.
Addyson has also started to become much more vocal - getting into the higher octaves. Thank goodness her squeals are squeals of joy. I'm sure happy squeals are much easier to handle than mad squeals.
Perhaps by next week we will have a picture with Santa - we are happy to take bets on whether she will be smiling or crying. I'm hoping for tears of joy! ;)

Week 43

Week 43 has gotten a little more exciting with Addyson crawling quite a bit more and pulling herself up onto chairs and tables. I am sure she is going to start being quite the explorer. Going to have to batton down the hatches very soon!!
This is a picture from my phone from about 2 weeks ago of Addyson trying on her new hat and gloves, I think she likes them.
LOL...you can still see the gloves and sticker tied to the top of the hat, silly girl.


Aunt Lindsey and Mallorie trying out the mowhawk with some wet hair.


Just a cutie picture of our little girl from my phone again, I forget to get them on the website.

Just Addyson talking to us.
video

Mallorie tought Addyson the head-bump...not sure that is a good thing, but sure is cute.
video

Dad was throwing a toy at Addyson and it would bounce up and hit her, then she giggles...I could do this all day!!! notice the mess in the back, she found out how to empty her toy box all over the house, now we just have to teach her how to put it all back in there!!

Our little crawler out exploring, she discovered the christmas tree today.

Week 42

Week 42 was an exciting week with lots to tell you about and Dad got a little crazy with video and pictures. Addyson CRAWLED for the first time this week!!! So, enjoy this weeks edition.
At Thanksgiving we decided to do a four-generation picture with the Zumberger Grandmas.
Grandma and Grandpa Zumberger with Eli and Addyson.
Congratulations Greg and Amy!
Addyson and Mom at thier first swim lessons together. Dad got to take her to the first two classes while Ky was out of town. Addyson really likes the water and chasing around the rubber duckies. Sorry Dad got a little camera happy at the pool.
Addyson floating on her back, and just relaxing.
Addyson and Mom hanging out, pretty cute ladies if I do say so myself!
Addyson really likes the Itsy-Bitsy-Spider song, they must sing this alot at daycare, one day we sang it and she started smiling and going crazy, so we have t assume she learned it there.

Listen for the little toot.....not sure who it was....we were trying to get her to crawl again...but this attempt failed.

video

Here we finally got one of her crawling, she really only goes about 2 to 3 feet but it is enough for a proud mom and dad. The first day we saw her crawl was 11-25-2009. Time to put up the gate at the top of the stairs.

video

Just a couple of videos of Ky and Addyson swimming.

Addy likes to chase after the rubber ducky, just like when in the tub.

Week 41

What a rough week it was! Addyson caught the stomach flu (at least that is what we are guessing it was!) and was down for pretty much the entire week. The craziness started on Monday and we finally got through Saturday without getting sick. I'm not sure who the week was rougher on - Addyson or Mom & Dad. Oh how helpless you feel when your little baby is sick and there isn't much you can do. Thank goodness she still likes to cuddle - perhaps that was the sickness talking!

Addyson helping me take pictures by holding the Week 41 sign - a bit easier than trying to hide the paper from her.
At home rooting for The Ohio State Buckeyes while Dad was at Ann Arbor tail-gating.
Not sure who or what Addyson is looking for but this is one of her favorite positions when we put her up on this chair.

And thanks to grandma M and grandma B for spending the day with your sick granddaughter and letting Mom and Dad go to work. Thank goodness for grandparents.
Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving. I know the Reeds are especially thankful for what this year has brought. Hopefully we will be able to see and visit with someone of you over the holiday weekend.

Week 39

This was an exciting week for Addyson and Jeff. Kyley signed up Addyson and herself for SKIP classes at the YMCA, which are basically swimming lessons. Well Kyley had to travel on that night so Dad got to go swimming with Addyson. Addyson finally rolled over the other way from front to her back....yeah! Now we just need to work on the crawling part.
Everyday brings us more and more fun, we play every night and just try to enjoy our short evening together before she has to go to bed. She is even more talkative this week compared to before, which we really enjoy.

Going after the camera, she probably thinks she can put it in her mouth like everything else!!
Just a couple videos to share......

Week 38

Week 38 and our little one is growing up so quickly. And of course she makes us laugh everyday.
Hey everyone!!
She is getting a little closer to crawling, but still haven't made the big leap. Hopefully it will only be a short while longer.
But she can fly like superman!!!!
Mal-Mal bought Addyson a Halloween outfit, thanks Mal!

Oh I like Halloween Oooh just hanging around the house!
