B is for...Bathtime!!!

Addi loves the bath!! Tubby-time always starts with 10 minutes or so, of just kicking around, playing with toys, and laughing! It has become much more of a fun-time, than a necessity. Just a side note, I can't believe how big this girl is getting! I can't believe that she is already five months old. It's funny how different events will bring back past memories, and how everything happening around this time, reminds me of when we first learned of our pregnancy....i.e. March Madness, the Arts Festival, the birth of my niece (1 year ago today...happy birthday Payten), and Mother's Day. It's incredible how fast time flies, and how much has changed in just 1 year. We love our life!

A is for....Addi-girl (of course it is. what else would it be?)!

Becoming a mother is the most incredible gift I have EVER received. Addisyn is such a joy! She makes us so happy to be alive. And watching Rich with her has made me fall in love all over again. He is totally smitten.

Here are some pictures of Addi's first trip to the park. It was gorgeous outside this afternoon, which makes me so excited for this spring and summer. She loved the swing, which was such a surprise, because she has never really taken to the indoor-swing at home.

Anyway...being a mom is truly AMAZING!!! Seriously....the best job I have ever had.



Oh, and one more thing. Addi is bound and determined to start crawling! She has little rug-burns on her knees from rocking back and forth so much. I had to take a quick video to capture her efforts...

The sweetest sound I ever heard...

It is impossible to watch this video and not smile! It gets better towards the end, but I have yet to figure out how to splice small parts of videos. She is so awesome!

Jumping on the band-wagon


So, today we have decided to join the blogging-world. This is officially, my very first attempt at blogging, so forgive me if it is lame...


On November 19, 2007, Rich and I were blessed with Addisyn. She is amazing, and the main reason that we suddenly feel the urge to blog! So today, I will share with you some pictures from our journey through the last 4.5 months.



Our first glimpse. After a brief-scare, and an emergency c-section, we were so thankful to hear that first cry!!

I can't believe she was ever this tiny!!
My favorite part of the day!
How could you not love this face!!




My first cereal encounter...
