Catch up

Wow! A lot has happened the past couple of weeks. We had to take Addison back to the pediatrician because she couldn't knock her cold/allergies. She is finally feeling better. Last week Addie got her first tooth. We knew it was coming because she was drooling a lot and chewing on everything, although she does that a lot anyway. :) She is such a happy baby. She didn't really fuss a lot even with the tooth breaking through.

Two weekends ago we went to Indy for a baby shower for Ashley and Bryan's triplets. It was a fun shower in the hospital with gifts galore. We had lots of fun being with some of our favorite people in Indy. Addison loved hanging out with her new friends, Brady, Breanna and Garrett. Garrett is about a month younger than Addison. They laid on the floor and just talked to each other. They are going to be life-long friends or we could be in trouble when the hormones kick in.

Last Thursday, August 7, Jeremy and I celebrated our 4th anniversary! It some ways it feels like yesterday that we just got married and in other ways it seems like long ago. Jeremy's mom watched Addie on Friday and then took her down to Lake Cumberland. Jeremy and I went down Saturday afternoon. So we had half of the weekend with just the two of us. It was wonderful! We went to an awesome restaurant, Le Relais, in Louisville. It is a French restaurant at a small airport where you can watch small planes take off and land. The chocolate sou flee was incredible! I tried to sleep in on Saturday but wasn't able to, I guess my body is trained. Welcome to motherhood, huh? It was nice to relax and just be the two of us! We have both been away from her a lot, but we have never been in our house without her for an extended amount of time. That is when is definitely hard to remember our lives with out Miss Addie G. We were excited to get the lake to see her and spend time with some family.

Kelly's last day watching Addison was Thursday. It has been great to have her with us this summer. It has been nice on us and on Addie to have someone at our house each day. Kel had to go back to college, but not before Addie and her spent a little time in the pool. I posted some pics below but they are turning out small. Sorry! Addison misses you, Kelly! :)

Addison started in her permanent daycare on Monday. Shashi, the owner, operates it out of her home. She is licensed for 12 kids, but right now has 9. Addie and another baby girl are the only babies. I am sure she will be spoiled. Last week Shashi came over to meet Addie, talk with us and bring a gift! So thoughtful! After 3 days we feel really good about it. She has been on a great schedule, been on walks and apparently laughs at the other kids all day long.

Sorry for the long post. We are getting ready for lots of fun! Anthony and Jenny are getting married on Friday and we leave for Florida on Sunday! We can't wait to spend time with David, Carrie and Dylan and just relax for a whole week. Say prayers that the plane ride goes well. Not looking forward to that one.

Love to you all!

P.S. Thanks Tracy for stopping by to stay "hi".

She is absolutely adorable. She is growing up so fast. Sounds like a very fun but busy summer. Have fun in Florida!
