This is my one hundredth post!!

Shame on me for letting so much time pass between posts!

We just got back from a wonderful little break in TX with Russ' family. I am happy to announce that it was a completely successful first trip with the baby!! In typical Addison style, he was an absolute peach all week! Poor thing had to endure 4 flights, and several hours in a car (we drove to Lubbock from Dallas for a wedding), and we barely heard a whimper out of him. It was a great little break for me as well! I love spending every day with this little guy, but I'd be lying if I said that I didn't need a break. It was so nice coming down each morning to a group of people just waiting to take the little man off my hands and snuggle with him. And I can't tell you how sweet it is to see the joy on everyone's faces as they played with him. His cousins Henslee and Layla Grayce were extra attentive...So cute!!!

So while in TX, Addison celebrated his 4 month birthday!!! We had to take the picture a week late, but here he is...

Really?! 4 months already? He is up to quite a bit these days...Rolling over (which made me really nervous when he started rolling over and sleeping on his belly), learning different sounds, and he's starting to giggle. We're not quite at the full on belly laugh just yet...but definitely getting close. I feel like I'm constantly trying to do things to make him laugh...I just want to hear it SO bad!!

I've got a lot of crafting on my plate!!! A store in TX has decided to carry the baby booties I make...yipeee!! It's a good thing I like to crochet, cause I'll be doing A LOT of that ;) Speaking of which, I should probably get to it.

Hope you're enjoying this HOT HOT day!

It's true what they say...

...they grow up too fast!

Today Addison and I had the lovely pleasure of visiting a dear friend, Jenny and her brand new nugget Lorelei. I had completely forgotten just how tiny and fragile brand new babes are. I do miss the brand new stage a bit. To my complete delight, I got to experience a little piece of that newborn heaven when the little man decided to take a little snooze on my chest.

It was a full hour of complete newborn bliss...the sweet scent of baby shampoo, the gentle soft breaths, his soft skin against mine...there is nothing quite like it.

We have been quite busy these last couple weeks. Lots of firsts for the little man...

First trip to the lake...
(ahh...the life!)

First baseball game, and fireworks...
(this picture kills me everytime..hehe)

(he was mesmerized by the fireworks...loved it!)

And his first time in the pool...
(sometimes I get worried he's not getting enough to eat...then I look at this picture, and realize...he's definitely getting enough...ha)

Although I do miss the newborn stage...I am absolutely loving these new stages we're going through, and I cannot wait to see what's coming up next!!!
