This is the best I could do for a photo shoot this month. You aren't ever going to sit still again, are you?
MOMMY AND DADDY LOVE YOU, ADDISON!
Mommy took you next door to swing on your 10 month birthday. As usual, you took it all in and had fun.
Mommy also learned that you still don't like grass.

Well, now we're all grown up and can actually play together, which is so much fun! We had lunch together and for desert, nothing is better than gnawing on a good old, tasty book.
After lunch, we played. I showed Hannah how to play the drums and how to put the shapes in the bucket. Then she told me her teeth were hurting so I offered her my ice cold teething ring. Hannah already has one tooth and I'm still working on my first one!
Can't wait to play with you again, Hannah!

Anyway, no electricity meant no internet and no way to charge up our computer. So, that's what started this whole delay. But please don't fear, we have a whole bunch in store for you. Put on your PJ's, make a bag of popcorn, and get comfy on the couch...you will definitely need a few minutes to catch up. :)
I have been crawling all over the place. I like that I can get to things that I want now. I am most interested in crawling to things that aren't my toys, such as cords, phones, remote controls, paper, and my favorite of all (which you'll see in this video), Wrigley's toys! For some reason his are so much more appealing than mine. Mommy said she and Daddy could have saved A LOT of money if they knew that all they needed to buy me were rubber dog toys.
Freedom sure does feel good. :)

I love talking to my Daddy on the phone. Mostly I like saying "Hi Dada". I was too busy checking myself out in Mommy's big mirror and forgot the second syllable this time. Oh and sorry the video is so dark. Mommy and I had just woken up and Mommy said since I wake up when the sun comes up, we don't need to turn on any lights. :)

Thanks Aunt Lori!
Me with Daddy, Mommy, and Wrigley
This is what Wrigley's shirt says. Look familiar? It should because it's mine! I wore it for the Columbus Race in May and let him borrow it for this one.
Me, Mommy and Wrigs
THE AFTER PARTY......
On behalf on me, my Mommy, and my Daddy, thank you to all our friends and family who came out to support Mommy at this very special event! WE LOVE YOU!!! See you next year for Kickin' it with Kristi III!

Please bless the families and friends of those who lost their lives in the terrorist attacks 7 years ago today. Please protect our country and give strength and courage to our country's future leaders and the men and women fighting to keep our country safe.

Wrigley and I love playing together! And don't worry, it's not as bad as it appears. My arm is still in one piece and was only slightly pink once all the fun and games ended. Wrigley doesn't bite down (and never will, he promised) and if Mommy sees him getting too rambunctious, she intervenes. Obviously, as evidenced in the video, I don't mind it one bit. I trust he'll leave me my fingers and toes. It's Mommy you all should worry about...she's always nibbling at them! :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AUNT JULIE. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!

I have a new trick! I can say "hi" into the phone. Both Daddy and Gammy have witnessed this. During the day when Daddy is at work, we call him on speakerphone so we can both talk to him. Lately, I've been saying "hi" a lot when Mommy puts the phone to my mouth. Then she says "Addison, say hi da-da." Yesterday I did it - several times! Mommy and Daddy were sooo mad we didn't get it on video. Mommy tried to get me to say it again while she was recording. It's not the best so you'll have to use your imagination and just trust me that I was really saying it!
"Da-da" is now my favorite thing to say. Forget "ba-ba", that was last week's word! As a matter of fact, I only took 3 of the 8 ounces of my bedtime bottle (ba-ba) this evening, which is very unusual, because I couldn't stop saying "da-da". Mommy kept saying "Honey, Da-da isn't here, he's at work. Sorry, baby, you're stuck with Ma-ma. Say ma-ma. Ma-ma. Ma-ma." No dice. Sorry mommy...maybe next week!

So this morning we went to our neighbors house for some coffee and tea. I passed on the warm beverages and had some water and of course my new favorite snack, puffed wheat! I was a really good girl. I played with little Izzy while our Mommy's had some great adult conversation. Izzy is 2 years old and is going to teach me all sorts of new things!
Thanks for the fun date, Nikol and Izzy! To Mommy's surprise, I'm taking a really good nap, (almost 2 hours so far - despite the loud banging, drilling, and horrible choice of music going on in the basement) so we want to know "can we do it again tomorrow?" :)

Gammy, Poppy and I had a fabulous time together. I slept GREAT, laughed A LOT, and did a lot of fun things.
I enjoyed playing in the exersaucer that my cousin let Gammy borrow for a while. Thanks, Jennifer, I loved it!
We visited with Great Grandpa N. while Great Grandma N. was out of town.
I played with Aunt Lori
And she helped me make a phone call to say hi to Mommy and Daddy.
We went for many strolls. Gammy and Poppy met (and fell in love with) BOB.
I played with lots and lots of toys.
And took pictures with my beautiful Gammy.
And also my gorgeous Great Grandma N. (after she came back into town)
I went to my cousins Jake and Sam's birthday party and met their new brother, Will. Will is 1 month old. He is mommy's youngest cousin. Will was 10lb 6 oz. and 23 1/4 inches when he was born!!
Then Will started crying and I wasn't sure what to do. Aunt Mickey fed him and he was happy again. Whew!
and got super messy!
