We have a walker!!

Addison is not slowing down for anything! At 10 months old she is walking!
At 8 months she was crawling up a storm-so I guess it was just a matter of time
She is so stinkin cute-she can get up on her feet so fast and then she walks not exactly steady yet-but she is quickly getting there. She is wearing a size 3 shoe in infants size. My Dad says that it is her chubby legs that are holding her up. She is reaching for the door handles and holds on to the table if she needs to balance
I left her in my room and walked into the living room & here she came through the living room walking after me! haha I love it-a whole new freedom for her. It is amazing how quickly you exit the baby stage.
She is saying DaDa-Mumma-and I can't decide what word it will be next-it will either be "Marley No or Shoes"-everytime I put her shoes on I say "Shoes". I broke down and bought her a new carseat and new shoes this week. I did my homework and bought the Safety 1st Alpha Omega-should have it in sometime this week. She is at 20lbs so I will keep her facing the back seat for a while. Her new shoes are Keds T-strap tennis shoes-a must have for a new walker. Expensive little things-but I want her to have good shoes to walk in.

at Cracker Barrel
Father's Day morning was filled with 5 cards from Addison & I-3 from Addison (one with her footprints) and 2 from me-thanking him for being such a hands-on kind of Dad. He is so helpful and calm with Addison & loves her to death. He tells her he loves her every morning and evening-wakes up with her every morning for breakfast & diaper change. He is one great caring Dad! Addison and I gave "Dad" tickets to the Atlanta Braves Game in July and a frame that had 4 pictures in it that had Addison holding a D-A-D-A in black & white (seriously the cutest thing ever!) I stole the idea from another creative blog I came across. My husband LOVED it and said that it was the perfect gift because he would have it forever.
Breakfast was at Cracker Barrel with my Dad-Mom-and Kelly
We gave Dad a gun-yeah sounds odd. But he wanted a pellet gun to shoot squirel with (slightly redneck).
Then off to Corky's on Poplar to meet up with Bryan's Dad-Mom-Sister Katie & Bryce
After that we went to the pool at Kelly's place and let Addison swim around in her new float
This Kid LOVES the water!
After that we ate at Wendy's because I was starving then we ate AGAIN at Justin's house
So needless to say-we ate all day on Father's Day
We had a great day although I was a little on the moody side.

Movin on up/ Utttt Oooooo

4 days ago Addison moved up to the creepers room (sounds scarry-but I love it). She is out of the itty bitty baby room & on to eating real food & walking around & playing & coloring!! She colored her 1st picture for me the other day & I about melted. I use to color pictures for my Mom on a daily/hourly basis. I thanked the baby room teachers for being so good to Addison-both Geneille & Barbara say how advanced she is & that she is really smart (I hope this lasts through her teenage years). Utttt Ooooo-this is what Addison said when she ever so nicely threw down her cup from her hi-chair. Sooo funny! I laughed out loud & feel like I need to video tape her every move. She is just growing up so fast. I am preparing everything for her 1st birthday-a whole lot of zebra & hot pink! I even have some things that I am making for it. Cupcakes are coming from Muddys!! YUM!

10 Wonderful Months of Addisonville

Addison Grace turned 10 months old on June 6, 2010!
Wow how ten month can fly by.
Here is what Addison is up to nowdays:
Sleeps with her pink chenille blankie every nap time & bedtime
No paci (thank goodness)-very easy to break her of taking it-she stopped herself
Sucks her left thumb when sleepy-while holding her blankie
Moving up to creepers room-finally! She was the 2nd to oldest one in her daycare room-but the most active in the group.
Ms. Genille, Ms. Barbara, Ms. Beth, Ms. Jesse are her teachers
She loves bathtime & thinks it's funny when all of her clothes are off
She loves the Collierville water park-not at first but then she warms up to it
She likes to hold on to me or Bryan & run through the water falls with her mouth open
She now goes from sitting straight to standing up
About a week ago she took her 1st few steps
She has happy feet & they move all of the time
I think when she slows her feet down-she will be off & walking
She is not a nap kinda kid-she saves her nap time for the ride home from daycare in my car
She eats pretty much anything-except for Catsup (makes a really funny face!)
Drinks 6oz of milk about every 3 hours & eats twice a day
Trying table food everytime we have something baby friendly
We tried pear juice the other day & she did not approve
But she did like the green peas that I had for lunch
She will walk around out circle table in the living room while trying to get Marley
I think she will find herself walking-while trying to get to Marley (hopefully Marley will be nice & not knock her over).
Addison tries to put on her own shoes! A kid after my own heart!
She has been running a fever with every tooth that comes in
So far we have the 2 bottom teeth in
Yesterday 6/8 we brushed her teeth for the 1st time
Addison likes her baby pool that she plays in at Ganmomma & Gandaddys
When she sees Bryan-that means it is play time-she gets sooo excited when he comes home!
I love to see them together
I love weekends with Bryan & Addison-she is so funny to watch at this stage of life-she is learning and doing & smiles at everything.
I am very blessed to have a great kiddo!
We love you Addison Grace, Addie G, Stinker Butt, Addie MaGee, Addie G Money, Addie Mac & Chesse (sad I know-she will never know what her real name is)
10 month pictures to follow..........and no I am not sure what I am going to do this month.
I have to start getting her pics ready for her 1 year birthday invites! YAY
