Addison's first 2 months

It has been exciting to watch Addison develop over the past two months. I jumped for joy when she had finally gotten back to her birth weight at 5 weeks (I had felt like such a failure when she was only gaining an ounce a week.) Now she is up to 9 pounds, still a skinny little thing. She has also grown 2 inches (a pound per inch.) She smiles all the time, and we have figured out a good day time schedule (except today of course.) She slept through the night one time, that was heavenly! Most nights she gets up every 3 to 4 hours.

Chloe and Cassie are having a blast with Addison, she's like their little baby doll. They dress her, change her diaper, feed her bottles, push her in the stroller, put her down for naps, and hug and kiss her every chance they get. I couldn't have asked for anything better than my two little helpers. Brian has been a champ changing diapers, putting her to bed, and giving me time to get out with my friends. Overall, this is a much easier experience this time around. (Oh, and the nursing has gotten much better)

Addison has been on several vacations already. We went to Florida for Christmas (Destin area and Orlando), and we also went to North Carolina for a snowboarding vacation with my Dad and Deana. Chloe and Cassie were superstars on the snowboard.

There are a couple of slideshows below of the past two months, just click play or the link to see the album on my google photos site.

Oh yay! I've been thinking lately that I needed to start pestering you for pictures! Addie is so cute and I love her hair. You need to send Chloe and Cassie out here after I have the baby to show my kids how things are supposed to be done! I'm glad that things are going well - you guys all look so fabulous!
