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.

I meant to post this video a few weeks ago and forgot. Here is a video of Addy opening one of her presents at her party that she had an over the top excitement for!

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!

Addison's 1 year pictures

Tomorrow 10/3 is Addison's 1 year birthday! It is so hard to believe she has been all mine for a year! Where has the time gone!

Tomorrow we are having a party for Addison and then Monday is the dreaded 1 year shots and check up. So much more to update on in the next few days!

Last Saturday we went and had family pictures and Addison's 1 year pictures taken. Here are a few of my favorites.
