Fourth of July

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th! We spent our day at my dads cooking out and swimming with the family. Addison is a little fish and loves to swim so this was a great way to spend the day.

Everyone seemed to have a blast but my poor brother in law David. He busted his ear drum after diving off the high cliff on our vacation so he was not able to swim with us. So he hung out watching videos in the house and playing with the laptop.

My Dad cooked us some terrific ribs and brisket and step mom T made us fresh fried okra, tomatoes, green beans, corn and squash casserole. They both are great cooks so were always down for a night of cooking at their house, and even better if there are leftovers I get to eat them the next day at work! Thanks Tawny :)

9 Month Stats

As promised we took Addison to the doctor today for her 9 month checkup. Thankfully this did not mean more shots. She is not due for any more of those till her 12 month check up.

As for her stats here is where she currently is...

Our baby is growing up!

Well our little pumpkin is another month older! Geez where is the time going?!?! Addison is at a really fun age. She is mobile and crawling all over the place and in to everything!

Here are a few things I want to remember about Addy at this age. Some may be the same as last month but I want to write them anyway!

- She is eating 3 meals a day with 1 snack. She also drinks 3-4 bottles a day ranging from 4-6oz.

- Wearing size 3 diapers

- Crawling and starting to pull up and creep

- Talking da-da, ma-ma, cat, pup and some other things we haven't deciphered just yet

- Turning in to a bad sleeper! Partly my fault while I was off work she lost all of her routine schedule so she was sleeping late and going to bed even later. While we were on vacation she slept with us and now we cant seem to get her to sleep a full night in her crib. Oh well we all manage to sleep some how so I'm not to worried about it, but will be happy when she can sleep alone in her crib again!

- Sooo love able. I don't think she has ever met a stranger. She loves to smile and is so happy with just about everyone!

I love this girl so much. I didn't know this kind of love could exist till I met my Addy! We took her to portrait innovations today for pictures and I think they turned out great! We will be using them for her 1st Birthday invites. Albeit 3 months away but never to early to start planning :)

Enjoy! Stats to come after her doctors appointment on Tuesday...
