What I want Addison to know

What I want Addison to know....................
Mommy & Daddy love you with all of their hearts
You are a child of God
You were a gift given to us by God
You will always be loved
You met your Great Grandmother 3 times before she passed
You were 7 weeks old when Mawmaw passed away-she said that you were perfect & that she couldn't find anything wrong with you-she looked. She was so amazed at just how beautiful you are and how much you looked like your Daddy
I had a wonderful pregnancy with you & enjoyed every minute-although you were kicking me ruthlessly
I cried when my blood sugar was not just right because I was affraid you would not be ok
I cried when you were born because I was so excited to have you here
Thank you for letting me be your Mommy-that is what I always wanted to be
Your Daddy's little girl-you grin and stop whatever you are doing when he walks into the room
Watching Daddy with you just melts my heart
You love to play with Marley-until she knocks you over
You can crawl backwards really quickly
You now prefer to sleep on your belly-but it scares me to death so I always try to flip you back over
Remember-slower cars drive on the right hand side-always pass on the left hand side (this is something that Daddy will never teach you-he doesn't believe in letting people pass him)
Never drive faster than your angels can fly
Make smart/good choices in life & always be able to sleep at night with the choices you made
Never have regrets
As long as I am around you will always have a new dress & new white shoes for Easter-if anything happens to me make sure Daddy follows through with this
At 7 1/2 months old you are out of your 6 month clothes & on to 9mth & can even wear 12mth clothes
You have 2 Grandfathers & 3 Grandmothers kinda crazy but the more the merrier
Never marry someone that makes you cry
Marry someone like your Father who will take care of you & be there for you
Stand up for what you believe in
Always know that God is by your side
Don't wear white shoes before Easter
Don't wear white shoes after Labor Day
Pearls with an outfit means trust
Not everyone is nice-but try to be nice to everyone
Do not let people get you down-they are only trying to build themselves up
Dance as if no one is watching
Live your life to the fullest & never give up
Dream your dreams & believe in yourself
I will do my hardest to give you everything that life has to offer
I will try to be there for you every step of the way
I will be your Mommy-Mom-Mother then your friend (this means I won't let you get away with everything)
Believe that true love does exist
Friends come & go but some friends last a lifetime
Love & Live your life in a way that is pleasing to God
Don't let the small moments pass you by
I love you more & more each day
To be continued....................................................................

Letting Go

This sounds silly-. I think I have an issue of letting things go. I have 3 lots of jeans on sale on E-Bay that I have had ohhhhh hmmmmm since high school!! That would be 10 years ago! Some are a little newer but I paid like $56-78 per pair (think Mom paid most of the time). I just sold 4 Lucky Brand Jeans for $50! OMG-It is killing me. For whatever reason I always think........Yep one day I will fit in those jeans again & it never happens. So I think a certain someone has an issue with letting things go. I have 15 pairs of jeans on E-Bay so I can buy some more MOM jeans! Ahhhhh I am sure when Addison goes off to college I will have trouble letting her go too. Or probably worse-if she is dating & riding in the car with somone. Oh dear-I am in for it big time!

Bully @ the daycare

Yesterday I walked into the daycare to pick up Addison & the teacher informed me that Addison had been the class bully that day! Do WHAT? She is only 7 1/2 months old. Ohhhh dear lordy. Come to find out she had pinned another little girl down to the floor with both of her hands! haha I laugh because just the sight of that would be funny-but I told Addison that that was not nice. Even though they said the other little girl was laughing.

The Game Of Life

So I guess my husband has decided that he is tired of watching America's Funniest Home Videos at night (I know I know very lame show). But we can never decide what to watch at night. So the other day at Wally World he picked up the game "LIFE" and Candyland!! Last night we played LIFE and he ended up with 3 girls! hahaha-2 of which were twins! Oh lordy. I told him-what if the next time we got pregnant it was twins! It got us to thinking A LOT!! But I guess whatever God decides to give us will be more than fine! Although dressing twins would put put a damper on my wallet. I told him that we are not getting any younger-but I think we will wait till Addison is about 2 or 2 1/2 till we start trying again. I have got to keep this diabetes under control so I can have another good pregnancy. I will miss those preggo clothes this summer! I felt fat & cute last summer & this summer I think I will just be feeling fat. And ohhhh yeah-did I mention I had to buy one of those "MOMMY" bathing suit SKIRTS! OMG-no joke! Thanks to the lovely scretch marks I accquired from Addie G. Cute kid-but serious damage on the skin! Maybe a trip to the tanning bed would help me out. But since I don't even get to Pee by myself-I don't see this trip in my future.

Tummy Talker

We put Addison in the Pack N Play at the end of our bed each night to sleep. We lay her on her back with a blanket (yes-she can breath through it) and her Violet puppy dog that sings her to sleep each night. Somewhere around 2:30a.m. mini-me decides she would like to sleep on her belly. But she doesn't exactly sleep. She talks to her blanket! Just barely awake-she sits there and talks until Bryan or I goes & turns her over-then she drifts right back off to sleep. One day maybe she will get to visit her big girl crib.

Our daycare has now confirmed that Addison @ 7 months is saying Momma-Dadda-and Bye Bye!! Yipppeeee and that she is the only kid in the class talking (not that I am surprised-after all I AM HER MOMMA! haha I love it. Everyday I walk in to get her she starts saying Momma Momma-It is priceless! I told my Mom this the other day & she seriously throught I had lost my mind. Glad that there was someone there to confirm it for me. And also to know that I am not loosing it.

Addisons 1st Georgia Visit

e took Addison to Atlanta, GA to meet her grandmother-Ginger aka Gammy over the weekend (Bryan's birth Mother). She also got to meet her Great Grandmother & Dan, Cousins, Aunt Gail, Aunt Janet, Aunt Linda, Uncle Randy, 2nd cousins and 3rd cousins as well. It was a go go go weekend. We saw 21 people while we were down there. We stayed with my cousin Jill in Alpharetta & we were about an hour away from everyone in every direction. Here are some pics from our trip:

It took us about 10 hours to get home from GA due to an overturned 18-wheeler on I-24. Then I proceeded to get very very sick on the way back @ Craker Barrel & Subway. Bryan had to drive all the way back home. It was one very long trip home.

Trying to Crawl & say MaMa

Addison is just 2 days shy of turning 7 months old. She is so very active and her Daddy says that we don't call her ADD-IE for nothin. Ohhh geezzzz he is such a mess. She is trying so hard to get her knees under her & attempt to break free of this rolling over & over phase. We decided last night that it is time to let go of the swing due to her awkward way of sitting in it. She decided that she would like to lay sideways in the swing with her head almost over the side while kicking her feet off the side. We also lowered the pack & play last night in front of our bed. Yes-maybe when she is 10 she can sleep in her big girl bed.  But as for right now I am affraid that she will sneeze or pass gas without us hearing it!! And heaven forbid me miss something that she does. Who knows I might break out & let her chill in her crib this weekend-but please-don't hold your breath. Ohhh and the MaMa thing-when you say MaMa she moves her mouth like she is saying it. It is adorable! I will try to get it on video when I get a chance.

Thinkin about sewing

So now that I am 28 I have decided that I need to learn more & do more. Sadness it only took me 28 years to realize that I am not getting any younger. I have decided that I would like to take a sewing class to make some of the super cute outfits that I have been looking at buying Addison. It really can't be that difficult. I have hundreds of ideas for clothes for her & just need a sewing machine & some fabric! Right!!?? Haaa we will soon find out! I am going to sign up for a class if anyone would like to join me.
See I can make this stuff!
It only takes some time
