Chunky Monkey!

Daddy and mommy went for a walk.. I think she liked it! :)

Mommy and GiGi wore Addi out shopping and going out to eat! lol

Today we went in for Addison's one month check up. I can not believe time has gone by so fast and a month ago I had her! She weighed 9lbs 6oz. She has grained 2 lbs since she was born... she is a little chunky monkey that likes to eat! lol

Dr. Lovell said that everything looked and sounded great and she was right on track! Such a relief to hear.
The only thing was she still has a little jaundice. They had to poke her foot to draw some blood ( which was horrible to watch :( Daddy had to hold her hands) to double check that everything was good but he thinks its just because im breast feeding her. So please keep our sweet little one in your prayers that the test turn out fine!

Daddy and Addi at our appointment!
we caught her smiling!

Too Cute!

Tonight Addison went to her 1st Central Football game! She did GREAT! Sam made a touchdown and an extra point .. so she got to cheer him on!!
She didn't fuss but one time because she was hungry and had a yuckie diaper. I guess she is going to love sports like her Daddy!
Her little bottom! :)
tooooo CUTE!
Addison by the end of the game! :)

Wednesday I went out to eat with Emily and I had to post this picture just for her! :)
We decided we wanted a dessert.. little did we know we ordered something bigger than Addison! lol
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Addison is growing non-stop! I cant believe she is getting so big.
Tuesday night was the 1st night I left Addison for a long period of time. I went to work for about 4 hours and cried all the way there. :( But of course she was fine with her Gigi, she took great care of her.
I got a job as a dance teacher for 2 and 3 year olds 2 days a week. I work on Tuesday nights and Friday mornings so its not bad just hard to leave her. Brent told me it will get easier :)

Thanks so much for all the prayers!
Also please keep my best friend Kari's family in your prayers. Her grandfather passed away today. I am glad he is not in pain anymore and in a better place. Please pray for them this week as they deal with the grief. We love you!

Have a great week,

Addison Kaye is here!!

Monday, August 2, 2010 our sweet baby girl decided she was ready to come out and meet us!
Brent and I were going to spend the day together getting everything ready for me to be induced on Wednesday. We went out to Target to grab a few things then to Gordmans before going to eat. Little did we know we were not going to make it past Gordmans.

As we walked about 10 steps in, I told Brent I think my water broke! His exact words.." Okay, Are you sure?" I told him that I was going to go check and as soon as I started walking again I told him we needed to go and go to the hospital. God had that planned because we were 1 exit away from the hospital and Brent and I were together!

After 7 hours of labor and only 30 min of pushing our sweet baby girl was here! I am very blessed to have had such a great labor.

Friday we went to our 1st doctors appointment. Everything went great. She was healthy and already almost back to her birth weight. The doctor said everything looked great!!

Her Daddy or...

Brent and I are beyond excited to become parents! We already love our little Addi Kaye sooo very much!
