Well... we have a walker! Yes, Addie is officially walking! Baby steps, of course... I can't put her down in the middle of Walmart and have her walk, but at home, with one of us across the room, she'll walk. Now we have to work on what to do when she falls. Since we worked backward here (walking before crawling), she needs to learn how to pull herself up once she's down. Needless to say, Mom and Dad are very proud :)
PS- Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for the kitchen set. She loves it!

We had a nice weekend with Brandt's parents at the cabin. Nice to be away and relax! Our first night with Addie was rough, but after that, she slept like normal. Here are a few pictures. In a bit, we will be heading out to stay with Brandt's cousins for the week! Looking forward to it :) Again, I'd appreciate prayers that Addie adjusts to the new place quickly!

Addison and I have had a great week! We've stayed busy, but definitely got in some "just us" time too. Today we played in the pool. The sun warmed it up nicely, so she enjoyed being in it. We leave tonight for Hayward, WI... Brandt's dad won a weekend at a cabin, so we're heading there to enjoy it with them! Looking forward to relaxing on the boat :) Hopefully Addie will sleep ok in a new place...

I'm officially adjusted to this stay-at-home-mom business :) It has taken about two weeks, to be honest, but I'm happy to be at home now. I didn't know it would be so hard to not do anything at all! I'm just so used to working, leaving Addie at grandma's, having my "out"... so being at home with no agenda is very different. But we've gotten into a routine now, Addie and I. She's enjoying being at home (definitely a momma's girl these days!), and I'm enjoying every moment spent with her. Still no walking... working hard on it though!

We had Ana and Adam over last night and they bought Addie that toy you see in the first picture. She loves it! My mom took her today for a few hours, so I could have some free time.... it was nice :) She is soooo close to walking! Today she took 2 steps on her own walking toward me, and she later used the couch to walk alongside it. She's never done that before. And she just wants to be walking all the time, so I'm looking forward to the next week or two... she should be figuring it out! Then she won't be so bored and frustrated :)

A few pictures from Addie's birthday party with all the family today. She was very good, and I think everyone had a good time! She got some great gifts as well :) Thanks to everyone who joined us!!
A note to Kylee... this was one of the dresses you bought her... a perfect party dress! She looked adorable, so thank you!
