Happy Thanksgiving

We got together with the Wilsons and the Morgans for an early Turkey Day. Here's a picture of Addison with her cousin Sydney. Aren't they sweetie pies?

Addie walks EVERYWHERE all the time now. She's really a toddler trapped in a baby's body.

Very Funny Video (VFV)- Micah captured the essence of the video with one question: Who spiked Addison's sippy cup?

The weather was absolutely awesome so we got to spend more time outside than usual. We found her outside with her E-pa when we got back from a bike ride.

Addison loved eating at the bar...we don't have one of these at home. She could watch us cook while she snacked away. She did give us quite a scare though b/c she pushed on the counter with her feet and tipped the chair once.

Lucas spent a lot of time outside. He wanted in and she wanted out.

Addie is trying to talk so much now too. She says duh for dog (we think) and she tried say kitty/cat by making the "k" sound. She's imitating our intonation too. One time I said in a strong, loud voice "Bad dog" to Lucas (shocker, I know) and she mimicked my tone as she babbled. It was so funny!

As expected, Addie loved looking at the lights on the tree. She stopped to check them out briefly...then went on her way!

Walking Baby

We finally got a picture of Addison walking. She is walking most of the time now. Of course, she falls a lot...but she thinks she's pretty talented anyway.

We take her to the doctor today for her 9 month check up. She'll be nine months this Friday! I can't believe how fast she is growing up. :(

Her doctor's appointment went well yesterday. She's 27 1/2 inches tall and in the 75%tile for height. However, she is only 17 lbs and 8 ounces which puts her in the 35 %tile for weight. That's not really a surprise to me since the girl hardly eats and never stops moving. The doc said she's not concerned though because once they start walking around, they thin out a bit. She's healthy in all other aspects which is the most important thing.

Fun Videos

We haven't gotten a video of her taking steps yet, but we're bound to soon. It seems that she is brave and tries to walk when our camera is no where near us. And we've got the camera rolling, she just squats down and crawls away!

Here's a picture of her standing on her own. She does this a lot now and has pretty good balance...even correcting herself when she almost falls.

This clip shows how she squats and then stands back up on her own.

Addison climbed in her swing backward yesterday and started swinging herself by holding onto the dangling toys on the side. She's so independent and busy!

Here's the video of her swinging:

Addison is getting fast at climbing up the stairs. She'd probably be fast going down them too, but I don't think it would be a pretty sight. There would be a lot of crying afterward, I'm sure!

I just had to add a picture of our first "baby". She sleeps most of her life away. We only see her act lively when there's food or a walk involved.

Our Dainty Dinosaur

Addie was a dinosaur for Halloween. We went and visited a few friends and neighbors and then called it a night. She was incredibly quiet and docile so we thought it was best to get her home and in bed in case it was "the calm before the storm".

Daddy and daughter getting ready to "TRICK OR TREAT"!

Here's Addison checking out our neighbors' (Bill and Edith) home. There was much she could get in to!

Our dirty dinosaur couldn't wait to get in the bathtub.

Addison's E-pa and Mema came up on Sunday to get some snuggles in. She was unusually cuddly so we had to take a picture. Now I know why she was so calm and cuddly. I found out today that she has an ear infection in her right ear. Poor baby. She was just so fussy today, I knew something wasn't right and she had a temperature last night and all day today.

IMPORTANT NEWS FLASH: Addison took two steps!!! Unfortunately, Micah wasn't here to witness it, but the dogs and I did! I'm not even sure she knew that she did it. She's also become quite efficient at climbing up the stairs. This girl is CRAZY! It's hard to believe she isn't even 9 months old yet!
