6 months.... a little late

I can't believe Addison is 6 months! It's crazy how fast time flies! She had her 6 month appointment last Tuesday and here is where she is at:

Weight: 15 pounds 14 ounces -44th percentile

Height: 25 1/2 inches- 36th percentile

Head: 25th percentile

She is such a busy body and never wants to hold still! She is starting to learn how to do so many new things and it's so fun to watch how excited she gets after she accomplishes something new. Some of things Addison loves and can now do are:

*has really discovered her voice and now is always babbling and saying mama/mumu and has said dada a few times (I'm sure she doesn't know what it means but it just melts my heart when she looks at me and says it)

*is rolling like crazy

*has developed quite the set of lungs and has a new scream where it really hurts your ears (luckily it doesn't happen too often!)

*has started to get up on her hands and knees and rocks back and forth

*pushes herself backwards and gets all over the place like that!

*LOVES playing and splashing in water which makes bath time so much fun!

*loves to grab your face and give you kisses

*loves playing with Bella and now is laughing at her

*loves playing patty cake (every time we start clapping she gets so... excited)

*has started to clap

*started eating puffs and is getting really good at grabbing them all by herself

*loves that she is finally big enough to face forward in her stroller without her carseat (she thinks she is such a big girl now!)

I know I have said this before but I really can't imagine my life without her! She keeps me very busy but I wouldn't have it any other way! Here are some pictures from the past month.
Addison and Bella playing
These pictures were all taken by her Nana (a.k.a) my mom in her studio. She has this amazing new backdrop that she had painted and I LOVE how these pictures turned out! I am so lucky that I have a mom who is a professional photographer. You can see some of her other amazing pictures by going here

giving mom kisses

Yes, this is blue licorice. I left to go run a couple errands and my mom and little brother Parker gave Addison a piece of licorice to suck on. She LOVED it! I am so glad my mom got a picture. I love the look on her face! It's priceless!

helping me with the laundry

I LOVE this picture! They were both so tired and fell asleep like this on the couch

Parkers back!!!!

My little brother Parker returned a little over a month ago after serving a mission in Tulsa Oklahoma. It has been so much fun having him home and Addison absolutely LOVES him! It's crazy to think I got married and had a baby while he was gone!


1st time swimming!!!

Today Addison and I went out to Daybreak to go swimming with Megan and Tessa. It was her first time at the pool and she LOVED it! It's so fun that Addison has a cousin who is only 3 months older. They always have such a great time together! I'm sad I didn't get any pictures of her in the pool, but at least we got some of them right after!
