5 Months!

I can't believe that Addison is 5 months already. Time has flown by. Here are a few things that she is into these days.

She has become a roly poly. She doesn't like to stay on her stomach for very long at all. She is getting much faster at rolling over.

Did I mention that she is a HAM? She is very sassy and LOVES zebra print. I know it is probably just the black and white pattern but I like to think that she has really good taste. HaHa.

We like playing with mommy and daddy on the floor. She will play for hours as long as someone is down there with her. She is VERY active. We are working on perfecting her sitting up. She sat up all by herself for the first time 2 weeks ago for about a minute and a half. We are also working on learning to crawl. She is very advanced. HaHa. Do I sound biased?

We are also trying to cut some teeth so we have all the drooling and fussiness that comes along with it.

She has discovered the baby in the mirror. This keeps her amused for a good 20 minutes. She thinks that baby is so funny.

She truly is a wonderful baby. She is generally happy most of the time. EVERYTHING is funny to her, especially her daddy. She LOVES animals. Her favorite video is her Baby Einstein, Noah's Ark. Her favorite TV shows are Sesame Street and Curious George. The books she likes the best at the moment are The Runaway Bunny, Goodnight Moon and 100 Bible Stories for Children. Her favorite songs are "Old McDonald," "You Are My Sunshine," and "The Alphabet Song."

Well, that is what we are enjoying these days. I hope you guys enjoy the photos and the updates!

Christmas Photos and Random things

Well, I know that it has taken way to long to update the blog. I just never realized how one little girl could turn your life upside down. It has been a very bumpy road but we are adjusting to parenthood and becoming a family. There are so many things that they don't tell you when you bring your little bundle of joy home form the hospital. I have learned to just "wing it" so to speak. We are slowly getting adjusted to a schedule. So many things have happened since the last post. I will go ahead and apologize for this post being so long

This picture was taken at Moments In Time Photography in Fort Payne, AL. Addison is 3 months in this picture. We had a difficult time during this photo shoot so this is really the only decent picture of us.

This is one of the pictures that we gave my parents for Christmas. It is the first time we have had professional pictures made of all of us since Paxton, my baby sister who is 11, was 3. This time we have 3 additions, Brian, Addison and my brother's fiance, Jacqueline.

Christmas was a very fun time for us. As you can tell, Addison is very fun! She is into EVERYTHING. She truly is a ham.

I love this picture because you can really see how much she looks like her daddy, especially her dimples.

She is actually inside of her stocking that we had hanging on the fireplace mantle.

Can you tell that we like BIG bows?

Addison got some very beautiful pearls from her Nena and Grandpa Andy. She LOVED showing them off.

Addie got a BUMBO for Christmas form Selah and Paxton. This thing is wonderful. She has actually started sitting up all by herself since she got this seat.
She is the BEST present we could ever ask for. She was obsessed with the ornaments and lights.

Opening presents was interesting. She didn't care about the presents at all. She was more interested in the paper.

We decided to have Santa come early to our house since we were not going to be home on Christmas morning.

Addison LOVES bath time! She would probably play and splash around until the water got cold if we let her.

Well, I will try to post more pictures very soon but for now, I need to go make dinner. I hope you enjoy the pictures!
