Kyank Kyou

Addie has some new tricks! She now says "Uh Ohhhhh" and "Thank you." Thank you sounds more like Kyank Kyou, but it melts my heart none the less. She also loves to do this: LOOK MA! No hands!

You may be wondering, "What's all that clutter on Michelle's counter?" Well, that's all of my nursing gear. Yep, that's right. We are officially done. This past week we had our last official nursing time. sniff sniff. I cried a little just because I was sad that this time is over. But I can honestly say that nursing Addie is the one thing in my life I am the most proud of doing. It was seriously the most challenging thing I have ever done but the most rewarding and looking back I am glad I stuck with it--through all of the ups and downs. It's a personal decision that we all have to make based on our babies and our lives....and I respect each and every mom for her choice. I wasn't breastfed and I turned out ok...well I guess that's debatable. :-) My mom did what was right for her at that time and I love her for it! I am however, beside myself with joy to pack all of the goodies up in the picture above!!

And the last picture....well...in our house we are counting down and getting excited!!!!
ps..read below for another new post I made tonight!

So cute! I can't believe she's standing on her own, what a big girl! Where did you get the little plate that you can write on? I just love it.

I just can't believe in a month she will be ONE!!! She looks like she's standing pretty good alone. Give her a hug from Nana.
