Just in case anyone was wondering why we decided to have Addie's party at the park this year....

Addie and Rylee

Back in January Amanda and I found these little hoodie shirts on clearance at Gymboree so we picked them up for the girls. This week when we went to see baby Patton, they wore their Twinkie shirts! So fun!

It's hard to believe that it's only been about two years since our girls looked like this...

Addie's voice

I don't ever want to forget how Addie's voice sounds right now!

I took this video today to try to capture it. ;)

Life with my ALMOST 2 Year Old!!!

Addie and I have been two very busy girls in the last month!  I have so much fun with her, I can’t even begin to describe it!  She is learning like a sponge and just amazes me every day with the things she says and does.  Her new favorite thing is to yell across the house, “Chelle!”  just like Brandon does when he’s calling for me.  She thinks she is pretty funny!  I cannot believe that in ONE MONTH from today she will be 2!  Where has the time gone?! 

We have spent a lot of time at the park in the last few weeks…any time we put on shoes she asks if we are going to the park….


I have been having lots of fun with my new iphone taking pictures of her and doing cool stuff with them…


I like to do this to her during hair washing…she doesn’t even really know what’s going on…but I sure do think it’s fun!


Thanks to Bubbie and Poppie we had a night away this month!  She loves going there and had so much fun as always.  My Dad took this picture of her in their kitchen. 


Anything we are eating is usually better than what she is eating!! Smile


I thought this picture was so cool, it’s like slow motion!


Last Wednesday we went to Lewisville and had the pleasure of keeping SWEET Landry for the day.  Addie was so excited that morning that I had to snap this picture.  Thanks Cece and Grandpa for her cute outfit!  IMG_0081

She loved kissing on Landry.  Who wouldn’t!!? He is the sweetest baby EVER!!!  It was such a fun day.


We’ve also had some problems with Addie’s skin this month.  She has broken out in hives like this picture several times….the doctor couldn’t really explain it and said to give benadryl and cortisone cream…not sure how “good” I am with that answer.  I am thinking we may need to see a pediatric dermatologist….poor baby!

Addie loves to play in the tub…with or without water…and with or without pants!  LOL!


CVS is officially her favorite store b/c of THIS on the front of the buggie!


Laughing at Lunch with Daddy and Uncle Jeremy…


This one’s for you, Sharon!  My princess can sure put on the “DRAMA!”


Blanket time!  We are training Addie to sit on a blanket and play for about 15 minutes to help her with focus and attention span.  I am so proud of her, because this is really hard for her!  She really, really wants to come off the blanket and play with me!  This is a Babywise (well…now Toddlerwise) thing and she’s doing well!


Check out how long her hair is when it’s wet!  I can’t believe it!  Johnson & Johnson detangler has CHANGED our life!


Sidewalk chalk is a new favorite activity!


Auntie M sent Addie some PURPLE bubbles!!  Can you see them in the picture?  They are so cool!  We have spent so much time outdoors lately, and I love it!


This morning on the way to school, I heard Addie “calling” her daddy.  She was using her shoe!  Sometimes her creativity blows my mind!


And finally, I have been sewing away lately!  I just wanted to share a few of the things I have made lately!  I am trying to grow this little business, so please keep me in mind for anything you need custom made!!

The first picture is my friend Amanda’s new nephew, Patton!  I made the little onesie for him for Amanda to give him.  His Mommy sent me the picture and I thought he was just the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!!


And last but not least…..I put together this little collage of Addie’s second year for the back of her birthday invitation….it just blows my mind to see how much she has changed in one year!!  I am excited to celebrate her 2nd birthday in a month, but also a little sad that our baby years are coming to an end.  She is getting so big and I just fall more and more in love with her every day!

Love to all!
