Addison's First Year Video

Happy 1st Birthday to our little princess. I can't believe that the time has went by so quickly. I woke Addison up this morning by singing Happy Birthday to her. She has started saying more words this week. At first I thought it was just coincidental but after she said them several times I'm realizing they are the real deal!! I took cupcakes to daycare today for the kids to celebrate her birthday and from the looks of the cake smash picture below I'm sure she'll love having a cupcake for snack today :-)

Car Seat has arrived!

Addison's new car seat arrived today! I had her test it out and she seemed to like it. It is really soft and plush-way more than her infant seat was. I read the manual then installed it in less than 5 minutes(so thankful that it was simple to install).

She approves :-)

p.s. I'm getting really annoyed that my camera takes more blurry pics then clear...maybe time for a new one...ugh!!

Walking caught on video

For a couple weeks now Addison has been taking a step or two here and there. This weekend she finally started to put it all together and started walking. She'll walk for a while then fall to her bottom and try it over agin and again. She also has realized that she can grab onto things(tables, small dresser, etc) and pull things off. She's into everything now. She still prefers to crawl but I'm sure that will change in the next few weeks.

Another Sign...

that Addison is growing up too fast is that we now have to buy a larger car seat. I weighed her on Wii Fit this weekend and it says she's 22.5 lbs but I think she weighs more than that because at her 9 month Dr appt she weighed 20lbs.

Her infant seat says the weight limit is 22 lbs. For Christmas she got the Eddie Bauer Seat as a gift from Nana and Papa(pictured below). The weight range is 30-100lbs and forward facing only. I think the seat is too large for her at this point so we ended up ordering a Britax Roundabout car seat yesterday.

Britax is renowed for making one of the safest car seats in the industry. We chose the Roundabout because it's specifically made for compact cars with limited rear seat space (this defines my car). I really wanted the Roundabout 50 which goes up to 50lbs vs the regular Roundabout only goes to 40lbs which means less amount of time we'll be able to use it but the Roundabout 50 had larger dimensions and I'm afraid it would not fit in my car's rear seat.

Treasure Museum

Today it was raining off and on so we decided to go do some more exploring in the area. We found Mel Fisher's Treasure Museum. On our way back home we stopped at Hale Groves and picked up fresh oranges, pineapple, pineapple chiptole salsa and some marinated artichokes.

Weekend Pics










Busy Weekend

This weekend we had the photoshoot for Addison's One Year Photos. We did an outdoor photo shoot at Royal Palm Park. We chose this location because of the large fountain located in the park and the views of the intercoastal. (CLICK HERE for photos of the park)

Luckily Addison did really well despite my need for her to have 3 outfit changes :-) We did a cake smash with balloons and I wasn't sure how Addison would react to the cake but she dug right in...literally. She was scraping the top of the cake and shoving the frosting into her mouth like a mad woman. She even pulled the layers of the mini-cake apart. She must have inherited my sweet tooth!

The photographer said she'd have the teasers on her blog in 7-10 days and then she'd also send me the gallery w/password in the next couple weeks as well. Now I'm kicking myself for choosing 3 outfits because I know I'm going to want way too many pics and it's going to cost a pretty penny. She also did several family shots as well. I'm now stalking her blog in anticipation of the teaser pics!!

Pool Time

Since the weather has been in the 80's recently the pool has finally warmed up. Tonight Addison and I went for a swim after dinner. She hasn't been in the pool since last summer so I wasn't sure how she'd react to it again. Once I put her in the float she was kicking and babbling and really enjoyed the water.

Easter 2010

Yesterday Brian surprised us and made dinner reservations at Disney's Vero Beach Resort. They had a really nice buffet with crab legs, salmon, shrimp, lamb, veal, ham, pasta station, and dessert bar(Yum!). During the day we went to a couple parks in the area and walked around. We also went to the river and Brian fished for awhile while Addison and I watched the dolphins and manatees.

Beach Day

The weather has been in the 80's the last few days so late yesterday afternoon we headed to the beach. Most children would have one taste of sand and want nothing to do with it...not Addison. She kept trying to eat the sand. Brian dug a hole in the sand that had water in it and she kept splashing her feet in it then decided to sit in it. She had a blast!!
