Aunt Lindsey is the Musical Director at Westchester Academy and we got to catch the debut of her fall show! They produced Peter Pan and it was AMAZING!! Complete with flying characters of course! She is so talented and she has such a great group of kids. We got to take Addison to see a little bit of the dress rehearsal before opening night. The last time we went to see one of Lindsey's musicals was when I was about 7 months pregnant and Addison kicked the entire time. This time was no exception! It was really funny because we were sitting right behind the orchestra pit with them facing us and one of the strings players kept giggling because Addison was so excited and throwing her arms everywhere like she was conducting her own show. She loved it. It will be really nice when we can actually take her to see the actual show! Great job Linds!!!
When we got to Houston, Mama Sue had just gotten back with pretty much the entire toy section of Target! Addi, of course, was in heaven. Not only did she have a bunch of new toys but she also had a bunch of new boxes to play with! Papa Joe read to her almost every single night. Reading has quickly become one of Addison's favorite things. If you put that book down and she's not ready to be finished with it she will let you know! So she really enjoyed being able to sit on Papa Joe's lap and have a new voice reading her books.
Here are a few pics from the week:

She was such a trooper. We ended up being at the zoo for about 3.5 hours and she didn't whine or fuss a single second. When we finally walked back to the car Charlie cradled Addi and the second he did those eyes were closed and she was zonked out the whole way home.

How tall am I?

During the play date, I realized that a little game we play with Addison turned her into a little bully! Whenever we'd pick up Addison out of her crib, we'd grab her pacifier and put the opposite end in our mouths just because it was easier to carry that way while we were carrying her. The last 2 months or so she's realized that that's her paci and it belongs in her mouth so she would snatch it out of our mouths and shove it back in hers. She thought it was funny that we were trying to steal her paci so we just kept doing it cause she was so dang cute. Well, fast forward to now and she is a paci theif! Addison kept crawling over to Hunter and yanking his pacifiier out of his mouth and putting it in hers. Every time I gave it back to him, she just crawled right back over and took it out again! Poor Hunter isn't quite crawling yet so he was just a sitting duck! He was such a sweet boy though and he let Addi have his paci and his momma went and got him another one. I can't wait to get these guys together again when their both crawling! Thanks for letting us hang out Ali!
It's impossible to get 3 babies to look at you!
I love the way she is looking at him in this pic
Clearly they were done with their photoshoot

She played with this forever!
"You want me to do what with this?"
"Oh, ok, I get it."

"Seriously? This isn't fun."
"WooHoo! It moves!"
"Man, that was fun."

- Pulling herself to a stand on EVERYTHING
- She can wave hello and goodbye
- Walks extemely well with our help
- Turns the pages of her books
- Drinks out of a sippy cup by herself
- She can pick up her own finger foods and put them in her mouth all by herself
- She's trying really hard to clap
- Says "mama", "dada", and "nana". None of it is really in context of course so we don't count them as words but it's still adorable!
This kid is all over the place! She is constantly on the move. We're still working on getting some teeth and this, along with the crawling and standing, have really thrown a wrench into our system. Naps, according to Addi, are no longer necessary. There are way better things to do than go to sleep! We've sadly resorted to driving her around to get her down. The second we put her down into her crib though those eyes pop wide open and its time to go! This makes for very sleepy parents! Luckily, fingers crossed, she is still sleeping through the night though. Its a little bit harder to get her down but once she's asleep she usually stays that way until about 7am.
She's got quite the little personality. She blabbers and giggles all day long (throw in some whining there too...super fun) and the most random things send her into hysterics! She's never met a stranger either. We took her to church for the first time last week and left her in the nursery. That girl was in hog heaven with all of the other babies! She waves at anybody that sends a glance her way and flashes her toothless smile. She's such a sweet girl :)
Alrighty, enough bragging ;) I hope everybody has a wondeful week!

She LOVES mirrors!
This right before she gave herself a big 'ol kiss!
Her favorite toy (primarily because she can stand and play with it at the same time)
