Christmast Pictures

Oh pictures with 3 little ones is not as fun as it sounds! The girls Mamaw T wanted to get some pictures of the girls to send to people for Christmas. So she bought them these cute Christmas dresses and some overalls to take pictures in. The girls did great but we did have some tears and some crazy side eye looks from Miss A that I swear I have never seen before!

Here are a few of my favorites...








Maybe a few bad ones to come just to give you a laugh :)

Mom's 50th Birthday

On November 6th we celebrated my mom's birthday (actual birthday Nov 5th).

My mom turned the big 5-0 this year so of course my sisters and I had to do it up right, so we threw her a party at my house and invited family and some of her co workers.

I think the night turned out pretty good but ill let you judge for your self...
















Halloween 2010

Halloween! This year we went back to our tradition of decorating and scaring the crap out of the neighborhood kids. We did this a few years ago and last year we kept it low key since Addison was just a few weeks old, but this year it was on again!

First off know that we LOVE Halloween! I love to decorate the outside and Matt and the boys love scaring the kids. Matt always dresses as the TX chain saw massacre guy and get a chain saw (Chain off of course).

This year was a little different we had a huge crowd! My sisters, their babies and husbands came out, my mom, Matt's brothers and wives/girlfriends and my nephew Hayden all came over. It was a blast having everyone over and just sitting out side watching the kids run!!

We even had most of our neighbors out of the house watching the show! Heck our neighbors right next to us weren't even passing candy out but still pulled out the lawn chairs and watched.

Here are the few pictures that were taken before it got dark.

















Kynli's Birthday

Oct 23rd - We celebrated Addy's buddies 1st birthday! Kynli is just 3 weeks younger than Addison. It has already been so cute to see the girls grow together over the past year. I think i can speak for all of my momma friends that were even more excited to see their friendships grow now that there older and a little more aware of each other. Addison has got it made will all of these great friends around her!
















Green Meadow Petting Farm

Oct 16th - Addison and her cousins all got to go and pet some adorable animals out at Green Meadow petting farm out by Joe Pool Lake. Addison was the only one who was really even big enough to know what was going on but it was still fun to take all of the girls together.

Here are a few pictures from our day













Im Sorry!

I know i have neglected this blog for way to long now!!! We have just been all kinds of busy.

So bare with me. Over the next few days I will be posting like crazy to catch everyone up on what has been going on the last few months!

Love!

Little Gym Costume Carnival

Addison is a proud member of The Little Gym in Fort Worth and we absolutely love it there. We attend class every Saturday at 9:00am. This past Friday (10/15) they hosted a Costume Carnival and we took Addy.

We didn't stay long but did dress her up and let her hang out for a bit. There were a lot of bigger kids and all Addy wanted to do was run around with them. She refused to hold my hand and would let go and run (well as fast as she can run) off with the older kids. Which makes me nervous cause she is so small if people aren't looking down they could run over her. But none the less we had a good time and Addison even enjoyed her first sucker :)

Here are some pictures of us at the house.

What a ham! Enjoy!

1 year checkup

Yesterday I took Addy in for her 1 year check up and shots :( She handled them as well as can be expected. Cried harder than her 6 month shots but was over them before we left the office. We don't have to go back till April 8th for one more shot so that is a relief!

Here are her stats
Weight - 18lbs 12 oz (10th percentile)
Height - 29 1/2 inches (50th percentile)

Addison is still really small for her age but the Dr is not to worried about it because she has always been small and so have I so she figures she is just like her momma. We do have to take her for some routine blood work that the Dr requested.

Here are some things I want to remember about Addison at 1 years old:

- Walking all over the place! Prefers to walk over crawling and can even run some if you chase her! Which she finds hilarious!!

- Talking more and more each day. Here are some things she can say besides the normal mama/dada. Maddy, Megan, Pup, baby, bye bye and hi.

- Learning new things every day. She is working on her colors now and knows blue and yellow.

- 100% on whole milk and loving it.

- Eating 3 meals a day plus 2 snacks and juice

- Loves her cousin Maddy! Talks about her every day and kisses her when ever you tell her to give Maddy kiss.

- Loves her pups and kisses and climbs on them all the time! Good thing they don't mind :)


Letter to Addison from her dad:
Well I'm not big on the mushy stuff, but I'll try my best. A year ago today, big guns upstairs gave my wife Shanda and I the best gift any family could ask for. At 8:21 pm Oct. 3rd 2009 Addison Lynn Zaragoza was born. Everyday since then has been a roller coaster of an experience. It's amazing how I can be having the worsts of days, and all it takes is to hear her say da da to turn it around. Addy, daddy loves you very much, and words cant describe what you mean to me.

Addison's 1st Birthday!

Well what a whirlwind weekend! We spent Saturday cleaning up and shopping for the party, then Sunday we partied hard with Addison and all of our closest family and friends. Then Monday we went to the Dr for the dreaded 1 year check up and shots!

The birthday party was a lot of work but so much fun. Definitely a memorable day. Addison had all of her little friends come over (Kayla, Kynli, Madison and Lily) and all of momma and daddy's older friends as well. Addison refused to take a nap all morning. All the hustling around getting ready she knew something was up, and just as i expected about half way through he present opening she was done. Wore our and tired! So we hurried up and did the cake (which i don't have the pictures of yet). She fell asleep in her high chair as she was eating. Cutest thing ever!

So after she was done i cleaned her up and let her nap on me while her friends played with some of the toys. Then when she woke up and most of the guests left, my sister, Lauren and Kelley helped me open up all of the toys for the girls to play with. They are going to be such good friends for many years to come!

Here are some pictures from the party. The rest are on my sisters camera which i should have soon! I also have some cake and present opening videos to post when I have them ready!
