Addie is very easily pleased these days. A plastic cup, tupperwear, anything that you have really really. But a favorite is paper. This is what I find when I leave for 2 seconds! "What!? Who me? No I'm not doing anything I promise."
"Oh man why do you keep coming back mom! Caught red handed."

Turtle neck

This isn't the best picture of her but it goes with a cute story I have to share. One day I asked Jim to get Adelaide dressed in the outfit that I had picked out while I finished getting myself ready. A few minutes later I hear-
"Ummm babe I dont think she can wear this."

"Why not?"

"Well she really doesn't have a neck to turtle"

Neck to turtle!!! BAHAHAHA!
It still makes me laugh.

6 Months!

Her stats:
Weight- 14lbs even
Head circumference- 16 1/2
(Shes definatly our little girl)

My baby is growing way to fast! Its hard to remember what it was like before she was with us. She has such a sweet but stubborn personality. Has found her toes are tasty. So are her fingers. Well anything she can get into her mouth she likes. She is back on a routin so she is sleeping through the night again, but only takes lik 3 30-40 minute naps during the day. She has started eating real food! She has only had 2 different types of squash- she likes it about as much as her dad does. (sometimes he wont even feed her because he cant even stand the smell. I sometimes wonder who is really the baby) Some of her favorite toys are paper, books and her blue plastic cup. She hates being left alone even for a second, which makes getting ready during the day kind of hard. She smiles but would rather just look at everything. She has FINALLY laughed for me! Only a few times and it takes a lot of work to get her to do it, but oh my it the most wonderful, magical, sweetest sound I have ever heard. I almost cry just thinking about it. She still loves her dad ( I have to admit I think more then she loves me) She lights up everytime she sees him. He isnt allowed to talk when I am putting her to bed because she wakes up right away and looks for him. She can sit up by herself for a few minutes before flopping over. Is way better with her tummy time now. She will stay on her tummy for a good 5 minutes before shes over it. She has learnt to roll over form her back to front and then back again. She loves to grab. Mostly my hair. (I no longer judge women who always have ponytails or moms who chop off their hair.)But I dont even care. I love everything about her. She turns my world upside down with one smile and makes my day with one little hug.

I love Halloween. Well any holiday. But this year it just came up on us so fast and went by even faster. Adelaide had lots of fun though. She was our little duck! "Hey I think there is suppose to be candy in here guys!"
"Serisously guys where is my candy?"
I love that shes just sitting on this little curb, but compared to her its huge.We went down to Sandy and Tylers house for their wards trunk or treat.
I told you I love them, so there are lots. She just had way to many fun things to look that didnt include the camera.
"Dad let me go! I need to get some treats!"
My wonderful cousins from Australia, Sarah and Emily were here visiting so they came with us. It was amazing having them here.
On Halloween we went to my moms house for Sunday dinner.
Play time with dad. She loves when he throws her up like this.
More play time, but this time with Grandpa. He is the only one thats happy she is getting bigger. He cant wait till she can really play with him.

Some of you may know that I love to dress up. Yes I know how old I am. I just think its fun to put on a fabulous skirt with great high heels.
But my favorite is now I have a family to dress up to! (Yes when it was just me and Jim I would make him match me every sunday) But a mini me is so much more fun! And she doesnt give me any grief about it, she loves it too.
In Jims defence he doesnt match me, I just wait till he is dressed then decided what I am going to wear and if it happens to be color cordinated with him then so be it.
I need to take more family pictures. But here are my cuteis in their sundays best.
I know...It kills me to how cute she is :)

Ahhh winter

I realized this morning that I love Fall and Winter. Dont get your hopes up Utah, not your kind of winter. California cold is plenty cold enough for me. I was snuggling in bed with my sleeping baby and it was still dark and cold. I could have layed there all day.I love when it starts to get chilly and the air is crisp. Perfect for bundling up in warm clothes or a snuggie. Drinking hot chocolate and watching a movie in the afternoon. Taking a long bubble bath and reading a book. All the warm cozy fall scents. Pumpkin, cinnamon, frosted cranberry. And all the holidays. Everyone just seems friendlier. But my favorite part is now Jim will cuddle me for more then 5 seconds because he doesnt get hot flashes.
So here is to staying in your jammies all day. I know we will be.

This is why I stop blogging. I try to make it cute and instead I just ruin it. I cant change the color writing so people can actually read it. And I cant shrink a pictuer to fit in the header. So thats why there are huge feet staring at you-it was that or a picture of my face cropped so a creepy eye was looking at you. and while were are at it how do i put picture on the side bar of my blog?
help please.
