6 months and counting...

Addie is 6 months already! We can barely keep up! She is such a happy, fun, busy baby. Addie now weighs in at 17 lbs 14 oz and is 26.5 inches long. She sits up all by herself, laughs, screams, scoots, jumps in her jumperoo, and just started to say her first word "Dada." Is that fair to me? ;) She loves to cuddle when she's tired and eat applesauce, pears, and tonight green beans! Peas are definitely not her favorite. We absolutely love our little girl.

Addie was a bumble bee for Halloween. She was so good about keeping her costume on. What a cutie!

Rice Cereal

Yesterday, Addie had her first experience with rice cereal. I was a little unsure of how this was going to go because Addie only likes breastmilk. Everything else that we have given her including sweet tasting medicines or vitamins, she spits out. To our surprise, Addie loved the rice cereal (I used breastmilk to water it down, so that may have helped). She kept trying to drink it instead of eating it, but she figured it out. In the end, we had a happy, messy baby!

David is getting a hang of this new rice cereal thing.

She was so happy!

I love this face. Addie was being so funny yesterday.

Addie had thrush for a second time. We used a new medication that turned her mouth purple and anything else that touched her mouth (which is everything). Luckily, the medication was very effective and cleared up the thrush in just a couple days. No more purple!

A Quick Trip Home

A couple weeks ago, Addie and I took a quick trip to California for Nana's birthday. We spent lots of time shopping, eating, and visiting. Of course, the best part was seeing family again! We had a blast! We can't wait for next month to go back!

Addie went swimming with the girls. She just loved being in the water! She would kick her chubby legs as we swirled her around.

Grandma Graham came for a visit! We missed Grandma Graham!
Addie met up with her older and wiser cousin June. We couldn't resist getting tons of pictures of these cute little girls. While we were taking pictures, Charlie was waving his hands back and forth trying to make the girls smile. I think that was my favorite part...thus, most of my pictures have tiny little hands at the bottom. It's a cute reminder of Charlie-boy.

Grandma Jonnie, Nana, Me, and Addie would go for a walk every morning. This was Addie before we left. I just love her chub!

A Golden Birthday

Happy Birthday sweetie! 28 on the 28th! Addie and I love you heaps and heaps. We are so lucky to have you forever. Kiss kiss.

My handsome honey buns.

Daddy Addie time. Addie absolutely loves her Daddy. Sometimes, only Daddy can make things better.

Addie actually loves this. I know it looks like she's crying in the picture, but Dave was actually trying to win her over by throwing her up and making her smile.

Four Months

Another month has come and gone! We absolutely love this age. Addie has quite the personality. She loves to talk, talk, talk, and scream... Our days are usually spent playing with her and holding her since she gets very upset when we turn our attention elsewhere. I think she got spoiled in California last week by all the doting family. Oh well, we don't mind. This past month was so much fun, and we are so excited for this next one!

My Mom Moment

Addie LOVES to cuddle, and I usually can't pass up an opportunity to cuddle up with my sweet girl. So this morning when Addie started to get sleepy for her nap, I picked her up and held her in my arms. After a few minutes of squirming around, she looked up at me with her beautiful blue eyes and smiled. Then she nestled her head into my chest and immediately fell asleep. I know, it sounds so insignificant, but to me it meant the world. I couldn't help but shed a few tears as I thought about how lucky I am to have this special little person in our home. I truly cherish each "mom moment". I don't think anything else can be quite as rewarding as being a mom. I love you my sweet Addie May.

Three Months

We can't believe our little girl is three months! Where has the time gone? Everyday is an unexpected adventure with our Addie May. She is our little cuddle bug who loves to talk and laugh at us. Don't be fooled by her cute, innocent pictures though because she can be a BIG stinker. She keeps us on our toes! We have loved these last three months with our little girl.

California Trip

In the beginning of July, we had the chance to go to California for a week. We had a fun filled week that started with a 4th of July parade in Huntington beach with the Kochs, Menloves, Uncle Steven, and Grandma Graham. We then headed down to the Hales beach house to meet all the Hales gang. We had Addie's baby blessing in Kenna's ward on Sunday. We was such a special day. Thanks to all those who came! The rest of the week consisted of visiting Grandma Graham's house and spending more time at the Hales beach house. This was Addie's first trip of many we hope to make to California in the future.

Two Months Already!

Addie was two months this past Thursday. Wow, time is just flying by! We want to freeze every day and cherish each moment a little longer. She is just getting so big, so fast. We had a doctor's appointment on Friday. She weighed in at 12.5 lbs (75-90th percentile) and measured at 23 inches long (75th percentile). The funny thing is that her head circumference was only in the 25-50th percentile. Dave and I joke that we have a semi long, fat, small headed baby, but we still love her. This past month has been quite eventful. Addie went on her first airplane ride to California (pictures to come), she was introduced to lots and lots of family, she has started laughing and cooing, she smiles mostly after naps and in the mornings (her happiest times), she rolls to her side, she started sleeping 6 hours at night, and she survived nights with only Daddy while I was back at work. We love our sweet Addie May!

Our Sweet Girl

Addie had her one month Dr. appointment today. She was 10 lbs 1 oz (75th percentile) and 21.25 inches (50th percentile). We can't believe how fast this past month has flown by. We cherish each and every day with our sweet girl. We love her so much. She truly is precious. Here is a slide show of the past month.

black and white photos

This photo was taken this morning before we got Addie ready for the day.

We could not decide between these next two photos which one should be her official one week old photo, so we decided to just posted them both... Enjoy.

We cannot believe that one week has already flown by with our little girl. Another side note... Addie had her 48 hour checkup a few days ago and everything is healthy and well. She is in the 50th percentile for everything the doctor measured.
