8wk Check Up

Addison Grace had her 2mth check up on October.6.2009 she did great! Although she does not like to be naked nor does she like to lay flat. Geeezzz double the trouble! She had 3 shots & one med by mouth (which she did not care for). Addison is 12pds 7oz and a healthy-happy-baby. She is in the 75% of her weight-height 23 inches-and her head. I am so blessed to have this healthy child.

I love this time of year

This is my Grandmothers favorite time of year-we miss her so very much. I use to call her & talk about nothing & she would just listen to me go on & on. I miss that. Mawmaw passed away Sept 24-2009 the day Addison turned 7wks. I got Addison to Mawmaw 3 times before she passed. I am so thankful for all of the memories & pictures that I have of her. Pawpaw passed away in Dec of 2008 & Mawmaw was never the same without him. They were childhood sweethearts & loved each other so much-it was so strong you could even see it when they looked at each other. Pawpaw was 18 & Mawmaw was 16 when they got married. So October is a tribute to my Grandmother-Mawmaw. She held Addison & would say she is so perfect just perfect-I can't find anything wrong with her-I've checked! haha. She would love the pictures of Addison in her costume. I can't wait to take the pics tomorrow!! Here are a few pics of Addison in her snow hat! That is a little big.

Mawmaw-so proud of Addison

She said that Pawpaw always knew that we would have a dark hair little girl

And sure enough-we found out we were pregnant the weekend that he passed away.

Kinda odd-Pawpaw left this world & asked God to give us this child.

First time I got to hold Addison

One healthy baby girl! 8lbs 6oz & they thought she was going to be between 10 & 11lbs! Mommy! Right before giving birth to Addison

He took over My Space

In May of 2006 I had added a guy by the name of Bryan to my Myspace page-I kinda thought that he looked like a cute little redneck Georgia Army boy so I added him. Every once in a while I would check & see how his weekend was. Then I got a message saying that he was going to New York to train the new cadets for 3mths & would not be able to communicate with me. Do WHAT! I know I know-So we exchanged numbers & I called him the 1st night that he got to New York. We then talked everyday for hours & hours for a total of 3mths. Then when he got back to S.C. we decided that we would make the drive to meet. He got 2wks of leave in Aug of 06' and he headed to GA 6 1/2 hours & I left Memphis to GA also 6 1/2 hours. My fam was flipping out! My Dad said-So you are going to meet up with a 55 year old janitor!! Good luck! My Mom was not real thrilled either but mainly that I was driving so far to meet a boy. And of course my Grandmother & Grandfather thought I was crazy! But were not suprised. So I backed my car into the Ruby Tuesday parking lot on the exit that Bryan told me to take & I sat & waited. Oh my goodness! Amy was blowing up my phone from the tractor pull & I was so nervous that I called Jill and talked with her till he arrived. He called me when he pulled in the parking lot-but I got to see him 1st because I was backed in to the parking space!! No joke I am that smart! He got out of the car & gave me a beautiful yellow rose. Then we noticed that we had matching outfits on! What are the chances of that?! Brown shirts-faded jeans-brown leather flip flops. On the next day at lunch over burgers he said "I am going to marry you". WOW-Crazy I know! After about 4 days in GA-we called my Mom & asked if it was ok that he follow me home to Memphis for the next week. So off we went to Memphis where he got to meet all of my friends & family. With Bryan still in the US Army we got to see each other 3 times between Aug & Dec & then he asked me to MARRY him on Dec 16-2006!!!!!!!!!!!!! He was supposed to leave for Afghanistan in Feb but we were going to get married when he got back after 18mths. But God heard my prayers & Bryan was medically released from the Army in May of 2007! We were married August 25th 2007 at Germantown Baptist Church-Honeymoon in Riviera Maya. We feel so blessed to have found each other. We are best friends & great lovers.
