Eventful Week

This week has certainly been interesting with the ice storm that came through Northwest Arkansas. We were fortunate in that we never lost power & it was certainly nice to have a few days at home.
Separate from that Addyson had a couple of big events this week. About Wednesday she leaned back while playing with Daddy and revealed that her third tooth is coming in. Thankfully she is taking it in stride as usual except for a few moments here and there. Then this afternoon, while I was at work, Josh called me and Addyson crawled forward for the first time. I was so bummed that I missed it, but thankfully Josh quickly grabbed the camera. She still tries to push too hard and ends up on her toes. Its just too cute!

Warning! For Female Eyes Only!

Okay. I just have to tell this story, because it is too funny!

Sunday night we were at life groups and Monty was holding Addyson. Monty commented on a little gas that she had passed. A few minutes later we all realized that Addyson has decided to get Monty ready for fatherhood in her own special way. Her little toot was actually a big blowout all over his leg. So off to the bedroom to change the diaper only to discover there are none to be had. I of course panic and start tearing through the bag for anything to keep her and the brand new car seat dry the five miles home. Then at the deepest, darkest corner of the bag I found it! There was one last ginormous hospital issued maxi pad from when I had Addyson. I never in my wildest dreams thought that I would be thankful to see one of those again, but that night it was our ticket to a dry ride home. So ladies the moral of the story is always double check your bags before leaving the house and don't be afraid to raid your stash in an emergency.

Seven Months Old!

I can't believe my little sweet heart is seven months old! Its strange to think that in five short months she'll be a year old. Addyson's six month flew by, but there was so much that happened. She started eating baby food, standing up, cutting teeth and crinkinling her little nose (which is the cutest thing ever). She brings so much joy into our lives! I can't wait to see what the next several months will bring.

Swim Class!

Tuesday night Addyson and I participated in our first Baby & Me swim class at the gym along with several others in the 2008 group. All of the kids did great and I don't remember even a whimper coming from anyone. Addyson did inhale a little bit of water a couple of times, but she just coughed a couple of times and went right back to playing. Its such a blessing to have programs like this available and such great friends to enjoy them with!
