A Week in the Life of Addie

By Danielle |

Go Red Sox!

I like to think this past week was pretty eventful. We had Easter, the start of the baseball season – professionally and the softball league Daddy plays with and we also decorated Addison’s bedroom to make room for all her toys.

In her bedroom the baby swing is gone,  new toy organizer is in. I covered the closet doors we use for storage with a curtain like I originally wanted to do and just got soooo much accomplished. I feel like unplugging a little bit and falling behind in my work was so worth it.

We enjoyed the start of the Red Sox season. We hare big fan’s here in our home – and our children have no choice but to join us on the Red Sox bandwagon. Sure we got off to a rough start but… hey our rivals did too!

We celebrated our first Easter without my sister, which was incredibly hard. As I got Addie into her high chair for dinner before everyone came into the house. A song that reminds me of her came on the radio. Lightening Strikes by Live.

the angel opens her eyes
pale blue colored iris,
presents the circle
and puts the glory out to hide, hide

As I sit there thinking about my sister who is now a beautiful angel, I shed a tear looking at my beautiful daughter knowing she will always have her own personal angel keeping her safe. It wasn’t a sad cry, it was one of those cries that is just indifferent. Not happy, but not grief. Just a cry to get it out because we all need those on occasion in my shoes.

Overall we had a beautiful day, and week preparing for it flew right by.

It is hard to believe I was still pregnant last Easter!

Where does time go?

How was your Easter?

New Bedroom

Addison sat in her crib and played as I moved stuff around and worked on organizing her toys in the corner... so far everything has worked out flawlessly and I realize I should have done this a long time ago!
