The 5pr46u3s | us in az

We recently visited my aunt and uncle in Arizona.  It was awesome!  Aunt Holly, you must be a ninja because I have no photos of you!

 

 

If you couldn’t figure out the squirrel picture, look again, there is an actual squirrel sitting on the wall.

The 5pr46u3s | 1 year part I

It is so cliché to say, “time goes by way too fast!”  But there is a reason that it is cliche…  *oceans of tears*

 

Apparently as a baby addison was SUPER HAPPY!  And then as she got older she developed some… attitude.   <3 her.

I failed at taking pictures this month… so we are going to use kate’s awesome iphone pictures!   And the couple that I did take.

 

So it didn’t take long for me to forget what it was like when she couldn’t crawl.  She is a pro now, and I am loving every second of it.  The first few weeks where she was all wobbly and would fall over were hilarious and adorable.   She still tips herself over sometimes when she gets over excited.  She is pulling herself up onto EVERYTHING, and almost constantly hurting herself as she gets used to toddler life.  Nothing serious yet, just the standard bumps and scrapes as she falls over or slips or pulls down something on top of herself.

I can’t believe how smart this kid is… what have we created?  She now signs for “milk” when she wants some, and she signs for “more” when she wants some more of whatever it is she is eating.  She claps when anyone says yay.  She went from eating nothing to being a ravenous beast who cannot be satisfied and will eat anything… including “man flesh!”  <– little LoTR reference there.  She motions her pointer finger when someone says “come here” and will come to me when I say come here.  She will give you something if you ask for it, just now she crawled across the bedroom with a Milani furball in her hand and placed it into my hand.  If she is already chewing on said object she will spit it into your hand if you ask… ha!  She says “all done”  when she is done breastfeeding.  And probably the coolest of all new things, she CLEARLY says “hello” and uses it appropriately.  If she is not being shy, she will wave to people/cars that she sees and say “hello”.  If she finds a phone she will pick it up and start saying hello.  If she has done something I do not approve of she will look up at me innocently… wave…. and say “hello”.  She is a devious one, this one.

Anyways, the big 1 year is coming up.  And let me just say the stuff I am hoping to put out there into the world wide webs is going to be awesome!

This month was crazy!

 

Flew to Chicago and back.  Shared the house with two other kids.  Started crawling.  Start sign language.  Went swimming.  Got a big kid car seat.  Crawling everywhere!  Down to one nap a day.  Exploring and learning on the regular.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record… FAST!  It is going by so fast… make it stop.  Someone make it stop.  Does anyone know how?  My brain is in a constant state of war.  One side cannot wait to meet the older versions of Addison, while the other side is desperately clinging to her past versions.  It is enough to drive a person to the brink of insanity and back on a daily basis.

As Kate and the little one nap behind me, I consider the fact that Addison might be our only child.  I mean we haven’t made any kind of decision, or even close to one, but it is definitely one of the options on the table.  If so I hope that I am enjoying every second to its fullest.  I hope when she is grown she will look back on her childhood with a rare kind of fondness.  I love you so much Addison.  Keep being awesome, and I will try to do the same!

The 5pr46u3s | 0.75 years

These faces haunt my dreams.  It’s a good kind of haunting.  In a Casper the Friendly Ghost kind of way.  Happy 9 months baby girl!

 

So there is a ton of things I want to say about how awesome everything has been going, but we are behind on packing for our family trip to Chicago!  This will be addison’s second time in chicago… first time post birthday… 3rd time flying… second time post birthday.  I know, confusing right?  Anyways we need to hurry up and finish packing the plane leaves at 6am!  We love all of you and will see you when we get back home!

Here are her 9 month measurements:

20lb 12oz. 82%
45.5 cm.    87%
28.5 in.       81%

Oh yeah, and I am going to try to post the 5 year anniversary blog while poolside in Chicago.  You ready Dave and Sarah Arel!?  The 5pr46u3s are coming to town!
