Week 16

Phew! This has been one busy, busy week - even with being a short work week. Hopefully the videos will make up for the lack of pictures. Addyson has been great in all of our running around - she doesn't even seem to mind all of the strangers that come up to her and make funny faces. She gives them a smile if they are crazy enough.
Addyson is still drooling a lot - or as our friend Josie put it this weekend "she is dripping". We were also able to meet 1week old Grant who is Josie's brother and were able to visit with our friends Lucas, Jaksen and Mya.
What other "tricks" is Addyson doing? She is still twirling her tongue and talking. Just today we watched her trying to roll over. From her back she was able to get on her side but that was about it. We are definitely going to keep trying!
Addyson finally able to wear her first pair of jeans (thanks Sandy & Chase!). We didn't think she would ever be able to fit into them.

Addyson wearing Aunt Mallorie's sunglasses. She enjoyed wearing them so much, her aunts ran out and bought Addyson her own pair. We will have to get a pic of those up next week - too cute!

Enjoy the videos.......

Week 13


Week 13 has been another
quick week full of excitement.
Addyson had her first week of Daycare
and did pretty good...so did mom.

At daycare Addyson made Kyley a
Mothers Day card and flower pot.
On the card those handprints
are Addysons and they turned them
into butterflies, and the little ladybugs and flowers
on the pot are Addyson's fingers.
The girls said she had the smallest bugs
and butterflies in the class.


Here is the card they made for Kyley.

Again the card and flower pot.

Addyson hangin out in the chair.

Here is Addyson playing in her little playpen.
She had a new bird friend named "Jacque" (he's french)
hanging in there, she really seems to like
smacking him around.

Kyley and Addyson tuckered out after
a long day at work and daycare.
Not sure who is more tired,
but this was Wednesday a.k.a. Humpday,
so the week is halfway over!!
