Finally, A New Post!

I'm hoping this summer to become better at blogging. I am going to try to do this during Addison's naptime...along with the tons of other things on my to-do list!

Here are some updates on Addison---

-She weighed 20 lbs, 7 oz at her last doctor appt.

-She's in the 25-50% on her weight and head circumference and in the 50% for her height.

-Dr. Lacour predicted she will be about 5 ft 4 in.

-She still isn't walking yet, but has taken a few steps on her own.

-Addison's favorite game right now is "Peek-a-Boo". She covers her face with anything she can get a hold of and waits for someone to "look for her".

-She has been in the front facing car seat for quite some time now. We put her in it around Mother's day.

-She has been drinking whole milk for about a month now, always out of a sippy cup .

-She also likes to drink water, thank goodness!

Since I've blogged last, we've been so busy with vacations and all sorts of things.

The summer started with Addison's one year birthday party. We made it a swimming party, so I think lots of people enjoyed it! My dad made brisket, so we had bbq sandwiches, potato salad, beans, and lots of other goodies! I made a huge cupcake specifically for Addison and then a #1 cake for the guests. It was my first attempt at being creative! She loved it!!
Also, we followed the Polish tradition of having three items sit on Addison's high chair. Whichever one she would pick, it told her future. The three items are a shot glass, a silver dollar, and a bible. Addison went right for the silver dollar!! YEAH!! She's going to be rich! :)
Back to the cake...Addison wasn't quite sure what to do first...she kept trying to take a bite out of the very top of the cupcake. Finally, she made a mess and had a great time!

The next weekend, we left to go camping in New Braunfels. We had a good time there, visiting with lots of old friends. Unfortunately, we all came back with either the stomach flu or E.Coli....needless to say, we were useless for the next week!

Then, mom rented a house in Galveston from Sunday through Thursday. We tried to have a good time, but Addison was very fussy. We could tell something was wrong. We came home early to take her to the doctor---she was diagnosed with a sinus infection, an ear infection, and dermatitis!! No wonder she was fussy!!

This past weekend was Addison's first wedding. Leslie Heinrich got married and threw a great party!! Addison loved it!! What a party animal!! She kept wanting to get down and walk around (with someone holding her hands!). Around 10pm, Daddy was ready to go...Addison was still the live wire, dancing to the music and squealing, even in the car when we were driving home! She finally crashed in the car seat!

So....needless to say, we've been busy! I still haven't bought a new camera, so I'm going to have to borrow my sister's camera to upload some pictures! Thank goodness for Aunt Kristen!!
