New Favorite!



I put on Addy's whole first birthday outfit today. She has worn it since her birthday. It is Garth's "go to" outfit! When he can't figure out what matches he puts her in this. She wore it on her birthday...it must match, right?!?

But today I put on the whole outfit...hair bows, shirt, hoodie, jeans, socks and shoes!

You can't tell in the picture but her hair is in pigtails...too stinking cute!!!!!

More Evidence!

As if the last post didn't cement the fact that Addy is
{insert your choice of words}!

These might...







But of course she is still the cutest baby I know!!!

Weird! Strange! Odd! Quirky!

alternate title...

Beth scroll down

Addyson is truly weird, strange, odd or quirky? You pick! She was trying to balance her sippy of milk and her sippy of water on her giraffe while sitting backwards.



I guess all of that work made her thirsty!



One thing is for sure...she is most absolutely cute!

*tap *tap

Is this thing on?!?!?

Maybe these will get your attention...












I tried to get him to really let me take a picture of just him but nothing worked. I told him "Mommy would love it, you know it was her birthday on Monday!" and I tried to bribe him with a peanut butter cup. Nothing worked!



And because it is a blog about Addy...



Now...is anyone out there?

BoBo!!

We don't have many pictures of Addy and her bobo because it only goes three places {1} her crib {2} the car {3} her crib at MiMis, that's it only those three places most of the time. I snapped some pictures of Addy with her beloved the other day when she got up from her nap.









She loves her bobo and I am very very scared to think of the day we have to {talking quietly} get.rid.of.the.bobo. At her 12 month appt. the nurse practioner suggested getting rid of the bottle and then work on the bobo "as soon as possible". The bottle has been gone since a week after that appointment, the bobo is still around.

With every change we have thrown at Addy she has done amazing. I was thinking that maybe, just maybe getting rid of the bobo will be as easy as every other change. But then I really started thinking about the changes...moving from the snuggle nest to the pack and play {easy}, switching from a swaddled 6 month old to a sleep sacked 6 month old {easy}, moving from her pack and play to her crib {easy},taking naps in her crib {easy} going down at night {easy}, weaning from the bottle {easy}, going from a sleep sacked 12 month old to a free as a bird 12 month old {easy} and then it hit me...all of these changes were easy and I mean really easy because.....she has her BOBO!

She has loved her bobo since the day she was born...




What in the world are we going to do when we have to lose the bobo?!?

Being Helpful...

or at least she thinks she is ;)

When we got back from the grocery store today Addy decided to "help" us put our groceries away.





She was too cute "helping" but a few things ended up in the wrong place. She had Ritz and Oreos in the fridge and she was taking ice cream out of the freezer.

And this photo speaks for itself...



{if it didn't speak to you...it was saying "Garth and Lauren drink way too much Coke."}

In case you were wondering...
no, it isn't open
no, she has never had a Coke
yes, we must drink it in front of her so much that she knows what to do with the can
or she is just really smart!!!
and yes, about 5 minutes after I took this photo the Coke fell and landed on her foot. That is the screaming you heard all the way at your house!

March

It's March already. This time last year I was getting ready to go back to school (March 8th). Lots had changed in the last year.
I was thinking tonight how much Addy loves books now. Up until a few weeks ago books were just something she throw around, daddy put in front of her a bedtime, and something she could take or leave.
Now we have favorite books, books we have to read over and over, books that Garth has memorized, books that calm her just by hearing the words, books that must be read before bed. I don't know what it is that makes her love them now but she does and I couldn't be happier. Her favorites are Noisy Farm, I Know a Rhino, and Barnyard Dance. Noisy Farm was the first book that she really loved (puffy heart read over and over type of love). It is a flip book about animal sounds. She learned her animal sounds from that book and then moved on. I Know a Rhino was the next book she fell in love with. It a super cute book that I don't mind hearing 10 times each night. It's the book that Garth recited on the way home tonight from dinner and just hearing the words calmed her down (since mommy forgot a bobo). Tonight she didn't sign more.more.more or please.please.please when she saw the book because I think her new love is going to be Barnyard Dance. Who wouldn't love a book with all of your favorite animals making noise and dancing?

What else does a girl need...a cup of milk, a bobo and a favortie book.
