Good grief it's about time! Addison hasn't really eaten much the last 2 days and has been uber cranky. I decided to stick my finger in her mouth tonight just to check it out and sure enough there are little bitty ridges poppin' through on her bottom gums! Yay!

Lost Maples

We all packed up today and headed out to Lost Maples for a little hike. It was beautiful! We had to carry Addison most of the way because it was a little too rocky for the stroller. She had a great time looking at all of the colorful trees and the weather was perfect for her. Here are a few pics!

Can you believe this is in Texas?

Addi and Nana

I love this face she is making :)

Big Girl!

Trip to Houston

We took another trip to Houston this week to see Charlie's family. Addison had a great time seeing the rest of her family. She absolutely adores her Uncle Will and I think the feeling is mutual ;) They have such a fun time together and he gets the best belly laughs out of her!

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:

Houston Zoo!

Oh how we love the Zoo. I think she could go every single day if we let her. We decided to head to the Houston Zoo with Mama Sue for a couple of hours while we were in town. This place puts the San Antonio Zoo to shame! They had wonderful, huge exhibits in a park-like atmosphere. I think she enjoyed the fish the most this time. The monkeys were still high up on the list though!

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?

Play Date!

While we were in Houston, we had a play date with Hunter and his cousin Reece. Hunter is exactly 2 months younger than Addison and he is such a cutie pie! Reece just turned 4 months and she seemed so itty bitty! I can't believe the difference a couple of months makes in babies.

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
