Love and Respect...

Okay, so I know this whole blog is really gonna be about Addison, but I just have to share about our weekend. And hey, Justin and I working on our marriage is all for Addison, right?

We went to the Love and Respect conference in San Diego. I know it's dramatic to say, but I really think it may have been life changing for me. I learned so much about my husband that I didn't know. I really learned about his needs as man and just how much they differ from mine. I also learned that it's gonna take a lot of work on my part to change how I function and treat him. He would DIE for Addie and me, and therefore he really deserves my honor and my respect. I want so much to be a good wife to him, the wife he needs. This will NOT happen over night but I am committed to making changes within me, not only to respect Justin, but to glorify God. I am excited to see what God can do with this....I am excited to gain a deeper love and understanding of Justin and I'm excited to have an even better marriage. I hope all you wives out there show your husbands respect today for all they do for you and your families. They deserve it and God calls us to show it. ..

Fun with Nana

So Addie and Nana have a special time together on Thursdays. They go to a "boogie" class, which is really just fun and dancing and playing. She LOVES it and the most talkative girl in the bunch!

She's a superhero!!
Everything goes in her mouth.
She loves to play with balls.

Out of the gate...

Okay so I'm starting to dive into the world of blogging. I've decided to use this blog as a way for family and friends who aren't around (or maybe those that are but we just don't see often) to keep up with our family. And by family, I of course mean Addison. I mean let's get serious, from the second she was born the attention shifted off of us, and onto her TOTALLY. Now I don't begrudge my darling precious girl of this, because this is how it should be! She's way cuter and more interesting that Justin or I will ever be. And she's just so funny! So like I said this is to start to keep a record of her and all the fun and crazy stuff she does for us on a daily basis. So to start I'll give you a few gems of what she did today....

First she took a 3 1/2 hour nap! Crazy! And she only does it on the days when we don't want her to....she has a sixth sense about this. She has begun to take the stick that we have to lock our sliding glass door at night, and she walks around banging in on the floor. Justin calls her Moses and tells her to "Let my people go"! She is fascinated right now with Ring Around the Rosey and calls it "ashes". We do this and she of course falls down too soon and then claps for her self, says "MOE" and pulls us up off the ground. She also likes it when we sing Itsy Bitsy Spider and does her best to do the motions. She gave lots of eskimo kisses tonight and likes to come up and just hug us when she's not promted to. Oh and she's graduated from just knowing where her body parts are (i.e. nose, mouth, belly button, etc) and she can go and point to mommy or daddy's too (and she goes to the right person!). She's obsessed with shoes right now and wants them on all the time ("Shooooooes") and she even brings us the matching ones to put on her. Now if I could just capture all this on camera! My memory card is full and I've misplaced the cable so I can download what's on there. Of course! My goal is to get those done ASAP so I can go back to taking pics.

So if you're out there and feel like following along and dropping by, thanks for thinking of us!
