It has roughly been 7 years since our last family portrait.  Will, Michael, Kelton, Paige, Brynlee, & Adilynn have been added to our growing family!  So glad we got a family portrait finally :)

Our first family portrait.  We had to wait almost an hour to get pictures done because they forgot to check us in so needless to say, Addi was ready to eat and take a nap.  But hey, all that matters is we have one right?

I guess she decided to be happy in this one!  We absolutely love this beautiful little girl!  She keeps our life very interesting.  We seriously never have a dull moment.  And she always brightens this mommy's day with this cute little smile.

Really adorable story!  So Michael had a really rough day and he was telling Addi about what he was concerned about and how he hoped he would be able to take care of us and it was so sad to hear how upset he was.  Well anyways, Addi looks up at her daddy and gives him a big slobbery smile and to just watch Michael feel relieved because he at least knew his baby girl was happy was the sweetest thing!  I love when I drive and Michael sits in the back with her and just stares at her with the biggest smile and I see him in the rear view mirror.  I love how in love he is with her!

3 months!

This month has FLOWN by!  Actually ever since Addi was born, time has flown by!  She can seriously make any of our bad days, good.  Just by that beautiful little smile of hers!  She is holding her head up like a champ!  I love waking her up from a nap and saying her name and that little head pops up and smiles at me!  She's such a cutie pie!  She has rolled over a few times but we always seem to walk out of the room and come back and she goes from her belly to her back.  She still loves her swing!  She has outgrown a few newborn outfits but she can still wear some of them.  She loves bath time but hates when we get her out of the bath.  She is very emotional and if you make growling noises in her face she freaks out.  She doesn't like when you do "Simba" (the pose off the Lion King) or bounce her in the air.  She is constantly wanting to grab and hold on to things so we think that's why she hates it.  She talks all the time when she's awake and in a good mood!  Anyway, we are really enjoying having her around and we never have a dull moment with her :)

Weird fact about Addi:  Her feet still haven't grown since she was born.  Yep, you read that right.  My daughter still can't fit in all the cute shoes her Nana & Aunt T have got her!  haha!

Looks just like her daddy!


When we found out we were having a girl we went shopping that day and Michael had to buy her this robe!  It says 100% princess on the side and has a crown on the hood!

 Gotta have some naked pictures!

Somewhat looks like her mama :)

 Love my beautiful baby!!!

Family pics!  (Still working on that nasty baby fat!!)

She's always sucking on her index finger!!  It's pretty cute ;)

Skyping with Grandma & Grandpa!!  She was talking right back to grandma!

Getting her ears pierced.

She only cried for maybe 5 mins.  She was a champ!

This is the new smile!  She opens her whole mouth up wide open.  It cracks us up!

Addi's Blessing/Update!

Sleeping with Aunt T while bowling!

Bowling night with my family for my dad's birthday :)

She LOVES her daddy!

Addi loved her Grandpa coming to visit!

So cute!!

 Addi's Blessing Day!


Brynlee loves her cousin

All the men :)  (we did it on Turkey Day at my parent's home and we forgot to remind everyone to bring dress clothes!!)

Aunt Shanny took pictures for us!

Our growing family (in the past 8 years!)  One grandbaby has been more every month from June-October (not all in the same year of course.)  Cool huh??

They are cuties!!

We had a blast fishing for our dinner one of the nights!

Thanksgiving day was a BLAST!  My whole family got together plus Michael's sis and dad and we had a fish fry and blessed baby Addi on Turkey Day!  She was blessed in the same dress that I was which is pretty neat :)  I'm still working on getting pictures of her one day in the pretty dress but I haven't got around to making time for that just yet.  
Tab and I went Black Friday shopping at CVS & Walgreens at midnight on Wednesday (her and my sis Shan went to lots of other places but I chose to sleep.)  We walked out of CVS making money with lots of free stuff which was the first for me!  I went back and got Michael and his dad Snuggies for Christmas with it lol.  
Addi has been the BEST little baby we could possibly ask for!  She's a handful and can't sit in one place more than a few minutes without flipping out and wanting to move around!  But she loves sitting in her swing in front of Christmas lights as long as someone is in the room.  So that works for us!  She is hilarious though!  She's so happy and we just fall more in love with her everyday :)
