A Short 8 Months

She actually poses now...

December 30th brought Addison’s eight month mark with our family. It is so hard to believe in only four months she will actually be an entire year old.

Where has all this time gone?

It seems like yesterday she was this tiny little 5 pounds bundle of fragile, and now she wants to play with her brothers, throw toys and chew on every last thing in our house. including my boobs. I wish I was joking!

But it is a huge accomplishment for me! (And anyone!) I have never breastfed any of my children this long, so the fact that I know I am only a couple months away from my goal of breastfeeding for a year is huge!

So lets look at some stats for our small fry this month:

  • 9 month clothes
  • Two teeth
  • 18 pounds

Needless to say, she is giant and adorable!
But as her mom, I think I am supposed to think that right?

So check out the pictures, and leave some love for Addie!

    She sat nicely before I was done getting her dressed, and put her 8 month owl sticker on for her pictures.

    I took a hand full of pictures of her laying down, although she isn't really "into" laying down anymore!

    Look at Me!
    I believe Addison has now learned how to pose. This has to be something she taught herself recently, because she didn't learn it from me!

    Who Me?
    Every time I called her name she would give me this look like... Oh who? Me?

    I love this picture... probably one of my favorite from the entire "photo shoot"

    This is pretty typical of her these days... hands are always in the mouth and covered wit drool. Makes for great cuddles... drool covered cuddles!

    Another one I love just because of the way she is looking at us!
  • AHHHH! 8 of 11
    I was so happy to catch an "in action" shot that didn't come out blurry. She is so much fun these days, this really is an accurate photo of her.

    Doesn't this picture just make your heart melt?
