Loving every minute of it!

I know it has been a while since we have updated the blog. Sorry! I have been a little busy lately. A lot of things have happened since we last wrote. Addison is now almost 6 weeks and we are approaching her due date on Sunday. Addison is wonderful! I am absolutely loving every minute of it! She is now almost 6 pounds.

We have already experienced several firsts together. At about 2 1/2 weeks, she was able to take her first bath. She LOVES water! It is the transition time from to the tub to back to her PJ's that she isn't thrilled about. Baths absolutely exhaust her. It is so cute.

We also took her to Samford University for the first time on Saturday. She got to see where Mommy and Daddy met. We took her to her first football game. It was a lot of fun with all of the pre-game festivities that were not available when we went to school there.

Our families are absolutely crazy about her. They jump every time she makes a sound. She is already so spoiled! Addie has now gotten to meet both of her great grandmothers. Babies cannot ever have too much love. I love the fact that she is surrounded with so much love. Brian's grandmother is now staying with us for a little while. It has been great! The only problem is that I have been eating so much of her wonderful cooking that I may never lose all of this baby weight. The other night after dinner I was looking around and couldn't see the baby and she had her wrapped up in her apron. It was so cute! We have spent most of the day today baking cookies. I have so much to learn from her. My grandmother asks about Addison all the time. The minute we walk in the door, she wants to hold her. We usually have to fight her to get to hold her.

I went back to work for the first time this week. It was the hardest thing that I have ever had to do. I cried all morning. I even went home at lunch just to see her. She was fine. Her grandmother (Nena) and her great grandmother (meme) had everything under control. We are very blessed that she hasn't had to go to daycare yet.

For those of you who are interested, Addison's baby dedication will be November 9th at 11:00am at our church, Westwood Baptist Church. We would love it to have as many friends and family there as possible. If you can't make it, please just lift up our family in your prayers.

When more stories and pictures are available, we will post them. Until then, ENJOY!

What a wonderful day I first babysitting job as a grandparent...aka NENA.
Addison couldn't have been more adorable. She's such a good baby.
My heart melts when she looks at me as I talk to her and share secrets. Yes it was sad when Mattea left to go to work. As a mother the emotion I felt when leaving Brian and Matt for the first time came back to me also. You'll never forget that feeling.
Another first besides the fact that everyone survived is that I finaly taught myself how to text message.(as a taecher I know answering the phone is a no-no)
so Mattea was able to get a play by play as to how her little girl was doing through out the day.
So now the only real problem we have is, "How are we ever going to get MeMe back to Montgomery?" I don't think I have anything that can compare to sweet Addie that can lure her back here.
I love being a daughter, mother and most of all a NENA. xoxoxo
