My baby is growing up!

I have been saying for months that time really flies... but for some reason, in the last two or three weeks it has REALLY been on my mind. Addison is GROWING up. She is so much bigger, smarter, funnier, with more personality than ever before!

Friday morning, Jay finally got the flu too. He was up sick and Addi woke up. He went downstairs and she followed him, then asked him to start her Elmo movie. So he did. At 4:30 a.m.!!! He was so out of it that he came to bed... I heard the movie going and went downstairs to get her and she was half out of it, watching Elmo! Man she loves him.

Yesterday we were in the garage and I dropped something. For a second I thought, gotta pick that up before Addi puts it in her mouth! Instead, she walked over, picked it up, and put it back on the shelf. SO BIG!!!!!!!

Today, Addi was pushing buttons... climbing on the kitchen table and just trying to get our attention anyway she can. And it was easy to get frustrated but for some reason it didn't stress me out. Knowing in a few months she will probably not be doing the same things anymore makes it all worth it (standing on the table and all!)

He never saw it coming....

poor Elmo.....
He really never saw it coming. One minute, he was sleeping next to Addi.... next minute, he's covered in baby barf.
We all woke up last night around midnight with Addi crying. Turns out she has the flu. Poor thing. Really, is there anything in life sadder than a baby crying, sick? They don't understand... just want to feel better... and as much as I love her and will do anything for her, hugging her barf-covered body and stroking her pukey hair really isn't that great.
So, Addi and I are home today. Lots of Elmo VIDEOs (Elmo is in the washing machine) and rest. Life is never dull!

Wow.... How tired can one family be?????

This weekend we hosted the first of two big parties this month. Yesterday, we had a couple's shower for Jay's little brother Adam and his fiance Molly. 30 adults... 16 kids... DAYS of prepping our house! Cleaning, organizing, yard work.... somehow everything seemed dirtier this week!

Jay's sister made the majority of the food prior to heading over to our house but still, we prepped food on Saturday for FIVE hours! Overkill we all thought but everything turned out so great that it's hard to say it was a waste. It rained all day but was nothing short of beautiful last night. I really had a great time, loved entertaining in our house and having family around. I just hope Molly and Adam liked it.

Now, Sunday night, Jay, Addi and I have barely moved all day. SOoooo tired... we watched movies and had a lot of cuddle time. But one thing happened that made it really really seem like Addi is growing up... she walked in while Jay and I were starting a movie, handed me an Elmo video, and pointed to her playroom. I set her up in there and she watched the whole thing! She is such a big girl!!!!!
