I realize it has been a LONG time since I've posted so I wanted to update everybody on what's going on!

Addison is 14.5 months old. The time has flown. She has developed such a little personality and she is such a silly girl! She is absolutely the most wonderful thing to ever happen to us. Right now she is really trying to speak real words. She's always been a little chatter box but it's so cute to watch her try and say new words. Here's a little list of her words right now:

* mama
* dada
* nana
* dog
* duck
* up
* out
* snack
* bite
* no
* hi
* uh-oh
* bye bye

I think I got them all. She signs "more", "please", and "all done" when she is eating. She actually started doing that about 9 months made feeding time a lot easier! She also likes to make animal sounds. We moo for our cows and raspberry for a horse. She can do snakes and chickens too. The horse is by far her favorite sound to make. I need to get it on video because it's so darn cute.

We've always had a sweet, cuddly girl but for the past month or 2 she has been a huggin and kissin machine! There have been numerous nights where it wasn't bed time until both mommy and daddy got at least 5 or 6 hugs and kisses each. That is absolutely my favorite part of being a mom right now. Those sweet little sloppy kisses make my day!

Charlie just got a new job working for a mortgage company. We're really excited about it because it keeps him at home with us :) All he needs is a computer, a telephone, and the occasional commute to Houston (which Grammy and Papa do not mind at all!). Hopefully this will turn into a wonderful thing! We are definitely blessed.
