Ohhh the hugs & an Addison funny

Addison is 19mths almost 20mths and her favorite thing to do is give HUGS. Not just a hug and run-but the kind that goes all the way around you as she holds on tight. We have noticed that Addison really likes American Idol-she loves to watch people sing and the music makes her dance.
-Addie Funny- Bryan was doing push-ups in the living room last night and Addison was watching him with her head going up and down and then she made a pounce for him! haha she jumped on his back and laughed and laughed-till she fell off. From then on out Bryan had to wait till she left the room to do his push-ups.

My Mom has started singing the Itsy Bitsy Spider to Addison. Saying that she LOVES IT is an understatement. The other day we were at Ganmomma and Gandaddys house and Addison asked Mom to sing it about 10 times. She gives you the look and says SPIDUL while putting her itty bitty fingers together like you do when you play the Itsy Bitsy Spider-it is priceless and Mom would seriously sing it all day long. Last night Addison and I were sitting on the couch watching TinkerBell before bed and Addison put her fingers together and said Spidul! So I got to sing it to her before she went to bed. Such a sweet age.

Family Circle Mag Share

I want to share part of an article that I read yesterday~I am all about holding on to things that were given to me as a gift or that were expensive. Example: I held on to a white sweater that my Mom bought me 12 years ago! And why did I hold on to it........Because 12 years ago I remember her paying a lot for the sweater because it went perfect with the Khaki dress I was wearing to an outside wedding! So although it no longer fit-I felt guilty evertime I thought about giving it to someone else that could use it. So silly. But here is the article:
Ditch The Dress?
You hope to fit into that dress again......well, maybe someday. But before deciding to keep it, ask yourself these 3 important questions:
-Did it ever fit well?
-Is it still in style?
-Can you think of an occasion to wear it?
Save only the clothes that meet those criteria-but don't store in your closet. Put them in a box and label it with the date. If you come across it a year later and haven't changed sizes, it's time to let the stuff go.
Here is the other part that I liked:
"If you haven't used something in a year, throw it out. Don't feel bad if it's a gift someone gave you." An item only has a value only if you benefit from it; otherwise it's clutter. "If you haven't used it in a year, name a specific occasion when you will need it, or get rid of it." And don't feel bad about tossing old gifts. "The love came from the person who gave you the gift, not from the actual sweater or gadget. You've received and enjoyed the kind thoughts, so let the object go."

So on that note..........I will be cleaning out my closet if anyone needs me

This past weekend we were on the GOOOOO all the time
Friday was dinner out with Sara & David from our Sunday School Group to give us some insight into the world of renting-wow on second thought I think we may sell. Gracious-could someone please just buy this house so we can move on. Then on Saturday it was clean the house and clean out the closets-I got rid of all of my Stanford suits that I was holding on to. I figured that someone needs them more than I do. Then on Saturday evening we went to the Todd Family Farm in MS for a Crawl fish Boil-Yup you did not mis-read that. I said Crawl fish Boil. Lee taught Bryan all about how to eat Crawl fish about 2 years ago-Bryan looks forward to this event every year. Seriously-all 3 of us arrived and we didn't see Bryan till it was almost time to pack up and head home. Looks like the hubs needed a guys night. All of the girls and kids stayed inside and played and talked. It was a great night. Then Sunday morning was church for us and then the gym and then a trip to Ganmommas and Gandady's house for dinner. Great weekend overall.

So I got a call today that Addison had been bitten on her forehead---yes no need to re-read that said FOREHEAD! How the heck do you get bitten on your FOREHEAD! Oh lordy Mae-I will be removing Addison from this daycare as soon as we get approved for the house we just put a bid on. Dear Lord-please let the bank accept our bid-that way I can move Addison to a different daycare. Such a mess the daycare situation has been. I wish they had the same teachers all the way through. It would make it so much easier. Addison is not the bitter at school-but when she comes home playfully she will bite me every once in a while. But we send her to time out and tell her no. I wish there was a way to work full time and be able to stay at home with Addison. Daycares are rough. I went and checked out another one today-didn't seem much better than where she is at now-and if we do get the house that we put a contract on I am going to move her anyways.

What I want for my child/children

This was taken from another Mom's blog who took it from another Mom's blog-But so very true words that I wanted to share with you-Something to think about.
To always strive to be more like God-while those around us are striving to be more like someone else
To work on teaching your kids right from wrong-but to also teach them about the love of God .

"There are two things I desire for you, precious loves. There are two things that I spend most of my time as a mother trying cultivate in you. Happiness ain't one of them. The first is, I want you to be content. Being content is so much different from being happy. Being content is not based on your surroundings. Being content comes from within. Contentment is a spirit of gratitude. It's the choice you make to either be thankful for the things you do have, or to whine about the things you don't have.Being content and grateful leads to consistent joy.As you know, because I've told you lots of times, Paul talked about being content. Paul said that he had "learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want." And Paul was in some rotten situations, kiddos, really rotten.How could Paul be content whether he was in prison or if his life was literally a shipwreck? Because Paul was constantly seeking to be in the will of God instead of his own, was constantly sacrificing his own comfort for the sake of the gospel, and was constantly being confirmed, strengthened, and blessed by God because of his obedience. He was given a supernatural power - that means something kind of like magic, God magic - to do things that most other humans could not do. And guess what? The bible tells us (in Ephesians 1) that God will give you the exact same power! If you want it!

Which leads me to my second desire for y'all.

I don't want you to be happy. I want you to be holy. That means, I want you to seek that God-power to make you content. I want you to want the Kingdom of God more than your own kingdom. And that's hard, babies, that is so hard. And that usually means passing up a lot of what the world considers happiness. But it means that you will achieve blessings directly from God that most of the world never dreams of because they are too occupied with the achieving the perfect birthday present!This means you may be poor, 'in want' as Paul said, and that's okay. It will never, ever be okay with the world for you to be poor. So you'll be up against the world. But not your dad and me, loves, because it was never our goal for you to be wealthy - at least not in the way that the world considers wealthy.Darlings, we love you so much. You will never even grasp how much we love you until you have children of your own, and then you'll get it, and then you'll apologize for the ways you treated us ;) But our goal is not to please you. Our goal is to please our Heavenly Father. But the Lord does command us to care for the orphan around fifty times. He does tell us to care for the poor around 300 times. He does tell us that when we care for the neediest, we are caring for Jesus Himself. And in chapter six of the book of Matthew, He tells us to seek His kingdom first, and let Him worry about the rest."

19 months!

Addison is now 19 months-over a year and a half!
My goodness!
She is a mess-but a very sweet little girl
Addison is in size 4 diapers, size 5 shoes, size 24mth clothes
She loves her Mommy & Daddy & uses our names very often
MAMMAAAAAA when she is hungry
and DADAAAAAAA when we enter the subdivison-she knows he is supposed to be home waiting on her
Her new word is PURPLE-although it comes our pupil
She goes to sleep at 8p.m. every night-and tells us night night sometimes as she heads to her room
Still sleeping with her pink blankie and we play the violet dog as she drifts off to sleep
Daycare issues have not been fun lately-no worries Addison-Mommy took care of everything
And if all else fails-I will move you to another place although I think you really like this place-but safety over fun for me! Guess I'd better start planning her 2nd Birthday! Goodness how time flys. I love being Addison's Mom-she makes me a better person.
We love you Addison-Love Mamma and Daddaaaa
