Summertime~it's so much fun!!!

This summer, we have had a lot of fun w/Addie. We have discovered even more that she loves the water! We started her out in her own little pool @ home and she enjoyed that. Then, we tried her out in a big pool and she loved that! We haven't gotten to do it as much as I would like though. Scott and I are heading to Gulf Shores this Sunday so I'll get some pool and beach time there. We decided to leave Addie w/my mom and dad and have our own little get away w/some friends. I feel bad, but it is a much needed vaca for us both! Next year, she'll be a little older and be able to enjoy it more.

Scott's sister had her baby about a week ago so we traveled to L'ville, KY to see baby Jenna! Addie hasn't seen the cousins for awhile, so it was good to catch up.

Addison also got to be at her first yard sale! We had a 5 person one @ my aunts house. I don't usually like to do yard sales, but it was easier w/lots of help. We did pretty well for the 2 days, but IT WAS HOT!!! Addie played a little in her pool and stayed in the house quiet a bit.

I will have more summer picks up soon!

Happy Father's Day!!!

This Father's Day, Addie, Scott and I went to lunch w/some of my family. My dad picked Red Lobster cause that's his favorite place to eat! Luckily, we didn't have to wait too long. I didn't get any pics of me and my dad, but I did get one of Addie and Scott when we got home. It was so hot outside and everyone was ready to get in their cars. The one of Scott and Addie isn't that great, but atleast I got one for his 1st Father's Day (her clothes were off b4 I cld take the pic)! After eating, we did a little shopping then pretty much layed around and watched golf for the rest of the day. That's what "daddy" chose to do! It was fun spending the day together:) I just want to say that I am very lucky to not only have a great husband, but he is also a great dad! He has done so good w/Addie and worships her! Right now, he doesn't get to spend as much time w/her as he would like cause of work, but he really tries to make the best of what he's got. He deserves the "Father of the Year" award along w/my great dad!!!!

Here's a video of Scott talking to Addie while he's in the shower.

9 month check~up!!!

Yesterday, Addie had her 9mth check-up w/Dr.Kastner. She turned 9mths on the 29th. I was anxious because it had been awhile. She weighed 23lbs and 4ozs, 29.5in tall (95 perc~of course, off the charts) and head circ. was 18 and 1/4. Before he comes in, the nurse asks a few questions then gives us a "growth milestones" handout which has lots of info. about what your child should be doing, etc. When we read over the developmental part, Addie was right on track w/what it was saying! I was very happy to see that and also hear it from Dr.K! He said she looked great and seems to be progressing very well. I was a little worried about how she wld do w/the exam, but she did very well. He even said she was the best behaved child of the whole day! He also said she seems very personable and happy, which we get all the time. She's usually always smiling at everyone. It's hard to go anywhere w/out several people stopping us to say something about her. I'm such a proud mommy:) Anyway, I always have questions and concerns when I take her and he answered all of them. Things seem to be "normal". I did tell him that she now HATES riding in her carseat! He said that was normal too and she wld get better once you turn her around. Was I glad to hear it's still 1 year (in TN) when you do that and not 2! I am so ready to do it now! Update...Addie climbed the steps the other day and clapped her hands for the first time today:)

Here are a few pics from the past week... Posing for the picture.
So cute w/her baby doll and her blanky.
