Christmas "baby"

We have been busy celebrating Christmas with family! My entire family on my mom's side was all together two weekends ago. This doesn't happen often. David, Carrie and Dylan were in town from Florida for a week. My Aunt Cathy and Uncle Phil from West Virginia got to meet Addie for the first time. It was so great to spend time together as a family. Too bad Addie was sick again!!!! Yep, third time in less than 2 months! This time it was a virus similar to tonsillitis. She was pretty needy and wasn't herself when the family was all together. We hate that she keeps getting sick! It is hard on her and on us!

Last weekend we did Christmas with Jeremy's side of the family. Tiffany (Jeremy's sister), Dave, Alex and Kameryn came in from Evansville. Addie has gotten the hang of unwrapping presents. She loves the bows and ribbons the most We need a bigger house for all her toys because her toys are no longer small (see below).

The highlight of the weekend was Addie said her first word. Betty and Randy got her a baby doll. She loved it immediately. That night when we were away at a wedding they told us she said "baby" all night long. We didn't believe them. The next morning we asked her where her baby was and she pointed to it and said "baby". She is hooked to the baby and won't stop saying the word. We asked her daycare this morning and they told us she loves playing with the baby dolls there so it made sense why she was attached so quickly. So cute! She is getting so big! Addie will be 10 months old on Christmas!

I uploaded some pictures from the past couple of weeks. I'll upload some videos soon.

We are looking forward to a low-key Christmas Day after celebrating with family already. May your holidays be filled with joy, peace and love. Christmas blessings from our family to yours!
