Finally, a Post!

Hi everybody! I apologize it's been so long since we've updated the blog. I promise I'll get better ;) Here's a glance of what's been going on since our last visit!

Addison turned 6 months old on August 19th. I have no idea where the time has gone! She had her check up where the doctor confirmed what we already knew....we have a very good eater on our hands! She was 19 pounds (95th percentile) and, wait for it, 28 inches (also in the 95th percentile)!!! We can't believe that a child of ours is taller than 95 percent of other babies her age! Woohoo!!! We got the ok to start her on veggies and fruit (she had been eating only formula and oatmeal up until this point). Here are a few pics from those adventures:


This is what she thought about her first bite of oatmeal at 5 months:

The food has been fun though. She now loves her oatmeal and she'll eat yogurt all day long if you let her! Her favorite vegetable is green beans although that seems to be changing every few days or so.

Last week we were in Houston for Poppaw's memorial service. Addi got to meet a lot of family she's never met before. She met her cousins Paul (8 months) and Hannah (just a few days behind Paul). She LOVED being around other babies!

Cups...our new favorite toy!

In the last 2 weeks, Addison has been pulling herself to a stand! She is such a determined little baby! I have a video of her pulling herself up in her crib that I'll have to find and post for you. She's thisclose to crawling. She'll get up on her hands and knees but she's not really too sure how to get the hands and the knees moving at the same time! Hopefully in the next couple of weeks she'll get the hang of it.

Alright, that's enough rambling for one post, let me break it up into another!
