Addie got to see Santa today......I don't think she was all that impressed.


I can do it, MOM!!!

Today Addie decided that she had enough of me trying to feed her and decided to do it herself. She did pretty well. Here is the aftermath...... lol!


First Balloon

Addie got a balloon today and had so much fun! She was just hilarious to watch! Batting it around and giggling hysterically!


Finger painting

Addie decided to do some finger painting today. She is not quite sure what to think and doesn't particularly like having stuff on her fingers.



Addie's first Halloween was a SUCCESS! She wore the cutest most perfect costume.....Raggedy Ann. She played the part perfectly and was the life of the party (well the 3 houses we visited with people home anyway.)


First Swimming lessons

Addie took her first swimming lessons today. She loved being in the water and splashing around. She didn't even seem to mind going under the water (although I was scared to death!)


2nd trip to Disneyland

Charles trying to look over the fence and see the princesses....hysterical!

Happy baby-She LOVES Disneyland

We took Addie to Disney again to celebrate her cast removal. It was even more fun than the first time if that's possible :) The Mad Hatter and Alice stopped to say hi and the Mad Hatter was convinced that she had "acorns on her cheeks" tee hee!! I think this time around she liked the Enchanted Tiki Room and Finding Nemo Submarine the best.



Addie had her cast removed today after 12 looooong weeks! She didn't seem to be bothered by the cast saw but she definitely did not like being moved around for them to take it off. When it came time to xray they made me hold down her newly freed legs and she was NOT happy! I think that was probably her least favorite part. Her hip socket looks good and it is making very good progress. She will have to wear a brace full time for a little while and then only at night for up to 2 years. We will continue to see the Dr. and treat the hip until it is completely fixed. It could take until she is 4 or 5. We are very grateful that the closed reduction and cast worked and that there are no more casts in our future.....


Happy Birthday Granny!!!!




We took Addie on her !st trip to Disneyland and we all had an amazing time. It was a little busier that we are used to, but it was so fun to see her reaction to all the characters, people and rides. She really liked "Small World" and her favorite character was Goofy. She even gave him a high five. She was a hit with all the Disney workers who all stopped to say hello and many people were so excited about her pink toenails and her "relaxed" position in her stroller. I don't think they realized that she was in a cast.
All in all, it was a GREAT trip and we can't wait to go back.
