Addie, Daddy, and the bucket

I left the popcorn bucket out and found Addie stuffing herself into it. She had been sitting inside of it but by the time I found the camera she was on the edge.

Thinking about how to get out of the bucket.

"Any suggestions, Dad?"

... and she's out.

"I wonder if I should..."

"... yes, I should yell about that."

I don't know what this video says about our daughter but it's one of my favorites.

And that concludes the Addie & Daddy Show.

We're Baaaack!

We just returned from NC this morning around 4:30 am. Addison is sick AGAIN, so the ride home was a bit rougher than the trip out. She cried about every 4 hours but once we got some medicine in her she would go back to sleep. Overall, she traveled very well, especially since it took 18+ hours to get home. We're trying to get caught up on sleep today...but she's not really doing a great job of it. It seems that her one year molars are coming in. She doesn't even have any teeth on top-it doesn't make sense! Needless to say, she's VERY opinionated about her situation.

Here are some more pics of our trip:

Playing in Caleb's new sandbox...

more playing


We visited a plantation built in the early 1800s. "Miss Independent" like to take off and doesn't even look back!!!

It's really hard to get her to look at the camera b/c she doesn't stand still very long. This is the best shot I could get.

Caleb got to pet a 12 day old lamb as it was nursing off the ewe.

We went to one of Caleb's play groups on Tuesday. Addison didn't make it through story time, but she did a good job of cleaning up at the end. She's really into helping put things up (for now).

At the park one evening

Her climbing is a bit out of control right now. I'm concerned that she might try to climb our bookcases and pull them on top of her. She climbs everything and has absolutely no fear. I'm not concerned about her falling of the bed, couch, or stairs so much b/c she seems to have them down, but she waves caution out the window when she decides to climb.

I'm certain she is what some would consider "strong-willed". She's definately not into cuddling and loving on anyone. She doesn't want to hold anyone's hand and she'll push you away when you try to stop her from doing something she wants to do. She also refuses to "perform" any of her new tricks she's learned. She'll do them for about one day and then you won't see them for a while...I'm not sure why...but I'm sure she does. Right now, she's looking at books and pointing to things. She's babbling about what she sees. It's so cute. I think I'll have to go kiss and hug her and watch her get irritated. :)

Visiting in NC

We're in North Carolina visiting my sister and her family right now. We made the long (16 hour drive) from KC and Addie seems to be adjusting fine to the time change. She was awesome on the road! She pretty much slept from 9 PM to about 6:30 AM, except for waking briefly at each stop.

I'm going to post every couple days so that Micah doesn't miss out on too much while we're gone. The last time we visited, she started sitting up on her own and trying to crawl. He's figuring she'll be reading by the time we get back...ha ha!

"Hi DADDY! I miss you so much. I wish you were here with us!"

Here's our doodlebug just sleeping away in her car seat.

As soon as we got here, Caleb tried on his fireman outfit for us. He's pretting darn cute (and so brave)!

Here's Toby in his mama's arms. He is the cuddliest little thing. We get lots of smiles from him!

Since we've been here, Addison has pretty much refused to stop moving. She climbs up and down the stairs about 18 times a day and climbs in and out of kitchen chairs. She's a one person wrecking crew!

Here are the three cutie pies in the bathtub. Addie didn't want to stay very long. I think she was so tired from our trip.

Caleb got to make Easter/St. Patrick's Day cookies with his Memaw this afternoon.

Addie was zonked out this morning in her bed. We had to wake her for church.

Mom, Dad, and I have been unable to see any KU games down here, so poor Dad is trying everything he can just to hear it. This is probably the first time he has ever missed KU during March Madness. Hopefully they'll keep advancing and we'll get to see them soon.

Besides the colds that Addison and I both have, we've had a great week. Here's a video clip of the games we've been playing:

Addison loves to play with this toy she got from her friend Isaac. Evidently, he liked to sit in the basket that holds the toys too!

Thursday, we leave for North Carolina to visit my sister and her family for 10 days!!! That's going to be fun, but the 18 hour drive to get there will probably be a challenge!

They turned out okay. We're a bit disappointed b/c we didn't get any great shots like we did when she was six months. Her hair was a bit crazy too. I guess it's a blessing that we don't like them all that much b/c we won't spend too much money.
