Addyson is doing great. She is happier than ever and, thankfully, is over the cough she had at the beginning of this month. Wakes up with a smile on her face and goes to bed with one too. I think she is finally getting the hang of eating cereal - tonight more actually went into her mouth than what usually comes back out. Addyson is also grabbing at everything. She is reaching out for anything within range and of course if she gets her hands on it, it goes straight into her mouth. She is definitely keeping us on her toes.
Taking weekly pics may also become a bit more challenging - as you can see in the pics below.

We stayed in a floating house, which is exactly what it sounds like, a house that is floating on the water. We were right on the water at the end of a marina which allowed the lake to be right there - no flights of stairs to go down or long coves to get through.
The sun was out most of the time - except when we first arrived which was probably the worst time for rain. Since we were on a house on the water, we had to load up all of our stuff on our boat to get it to the house. Our suitcases, coolers, etc were loaded into the boat and the boat and jetskis were in the water when it started to rain. It wasn't a little sprinkle, it was a downpour - sheets of rain came down for about 20 minutes. It was quite a sight watching the Brands run around trying to keep our clothes and food from getting drenched. Fortunately for me, I had to keep Addyson dry and was able to camp out in the car during the storm. Unfortunately our camera was in a bag, which was in the boat safely under other bags so it didn't get wet but wasn't able to take a pic of the craziness that started our trip.
Addyson did great during our vaca and of course she was spoiled with way too much attention.

The Reed family.
Addyson in her swimsuit! It was really only warm enough on Monday to get the swimming suit out. And even then she had her cover up on for the majority of the time.
Reed family enjoying the sun!
Addyson's first (and only) dip into the water. She was content as long as she had the plastic buckle to gnaw on - so easily entertained.

Addyson has become extremely talkative. Jabbering all of the time. We cannot wait to see who will talk more - Addyson or Dad. And she continues to smile - even at people she doesn't know. We can easily see her turn into this little tot that will talk to anyone!
Addyson is also becoming much more grabby. Of course everything she grabs goes straight into her mouth - including your face. Your nose is the perfect fit!
Addyson and Uncle Steve both awake!!
