Yes, we finally...

gave Addy cereal...



Her first taste...


Every time Garth and I eat Addy stares at us but today she wasn't sure about cereal. I think she would like to skip cereal and just move onto eating pizza!!!


Ummm...let's just play...




Okay...maybe she likes it...


Nope, she doesn't like it...


This is me trying to capture the moment on video and camera...


Addy is growing up so fast. I can't believe she is eating cereal already (okay so she isn't eating it but she should be and she will be soon...right? I hope it isn't another bottle experience!).
Have a great week!

Yummy!

I stopped by Open Invitations on the way home yesterday to get cupcakes.

Oh my...they are yummy!



So yummy that we ate two before I took pictures...



Open Invitations obviously makes and sells invitations but they also sell "neat finds". The stuff you find in boutiques...I guess Open Invitations is a boutique. And the best part is The Baltimore Cupcake Company set up in a room there and they sell yummy cupcakes and these too cute T-shirts...

Happy Mother's Day!!!

So, it isn't Mother's Day anymore and I didn't really feel that great on Mother's Day but looking back on yesterday I realize it really was a wonderful day!

It felt horrible and so did Garth (the doctor said he was "sicker" than me...or so he says!) but it really was a great day because we just laid around and played with our beautiful daughter. She is such a happy baby and she just played and laughed all day (except when she was hungry...watch out...she wants her bottle)! She played on her mat, in her excersaucer and sitting in mommy's lap! She thought we were so funny she was full of giggles...who could ask for anything more? A beautiful, loving, funny, adorable, precious, caring i could go on forever daughter!

I may have had strep throat and felt horrible but I spent my Mother's Day with my husband and beautiful daughter...and I even got to see my mom...she came to take care of me and Addyson while Garth went to the doctor since he was "sicker" than me (she will always be my momma..that's what I call her)!

I can only hope that I will as good of a momma to Addyson and my mom is to me (I am 25 and my mom still came to take of me)!

I am blessed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Strep throat and all!

Happy Mother's Day to me!

Five Months Old!!!!

Yep, you read it right Addyson is 5 months old today!!!!

I can't believe that five months ago we were in the hospital holding a brand new baby...a 7 hour old baby to be exact!!

Here she is a big 5 month old! (no, that isn't her real eye color...I accidently erased her eye color and the whites...not just the whites...I need to fix that!)

modeling, of course!!!

When we got there they were watching a movie with Mimi and I somehow got them to go put on matching outfits and go outside with me to model! The modeling didn't last long before Birdie went to the garage and opened it up to get the chalk.

We went and changed into play clothes (sorry Shelby...I don't think they were play clothes). Riley kept asking me if her outfit was okay and if her shoes were okay...once we looked perfect we went back outside to play...okay I took pictures of them playing!!!!

Just a countdown post...

I wasn't joking about counting down!

27 1/2 days of kids! 28 1/2 days of work! (I clearly can't count...I think these countdowns are right!)

1/2 days are the best! Unfortunately for me other counties have 1/2 days the whole last week of school but not mine....do they really think that we are doing any teaching?!?!? If they do they are only lying to themselves!

...it's not me. And I'm okay with that. Because they are adorable together and they love each other soooooooo much! I could watch (and take pictures) of them all day and night. She follows his voice everywhere and thinks he is hysterical (even his stupid jokes...she always laughs!) He opened the door tonight when he got home and said "Hi, Smoochy!" she lite up...and hasn't stopped since!!!!!

Bauer thought he should join in the fun....
