Addison Again

Hi - it's Addison again - I have had a very busy last week. My dad has been working long hours and so I sent him this picture of me while he was at work and an email that said, "Dad - I miss you and wish you were home with me. I have so many new books and toys that Aunt Kel brought for me. I can't wait for you to come home and see them. I love you!"
Then I sent him another email and picture, "oh yeah, and dad...do you like my cute outfit today?" I was so happy when he got off work right at 5 pm - it made my day!
Because you see - the day before I wore this cute outfit - and it didn't make my dad come home any earlier.
But I did wear that really cute outfit to go to lunch with my mom's friends from work (but I don't really remember meeting them because I slept through the whole outing).
But, my dad felt badly for being so late that night so he did put batteries in my mobile and while I was more interested in looking at him while he was taking the picture I do LOVE my mobile. I go to sleep a lot better in my crib now and I know that's making my mom happy too.
Also, grandma came over to cut my finger nails. My mom clipped my finger the first time she tried - I didn't cry at all but it bled a lot and my mom felt badly - so grandma offered to help.
Since that first time, I've had them cut again by my mom and she did much better - see?
Oh, and, my dad took me around the house and vacuumed. He carried me the whole time and by the time we finished his arm was dead - I'm not sure if it's because I'm heavy or because we have a BIG house...
I also would like you all to know that I have been working on perfecting my tummy time - isn't this more what it's supposed to look like? So please stop laughing at my previous attempts - I was only two weeks old...sheesh.
My parents took me to my first Swiss Days. I hear we'll be going every year because my great-grandpa has a booth up there and we help him clean up. I didn't really help this year but my dad says that we are hard workers in our family - so I'm sure I'll be helping soon. Also, at Swiss Days, my mom fed me for the first time in public - it went pretty well other than that it was really hot.
Did you know that I have an awesome high chair...well I got to try it out for the first time this weekend and I really like it.
It helps me to do one of my favorite things - look out the window. I can recline and watch the birds and shadows of the trees and just enjoy the sun. It's awesome!
I also learned to find my thumb this past week. I think it's accidental but I suck on it really hard when I can find it.
I also would like to report that I am the BEST SLEEPER - my mom says so. I went to bed at 9:30 last night - right to sleep with no fussing. Then I waited until 2:30 to eat again and I went right back to sleep. I then let my parents sleep in until 7:30...I figure they work so hard and could use the rest on a holiday morning. I'm pretty nice and considerate - don't you think?
The best thing that happened this past weekend is that my Aunt Kel came to stay with me (and my parents too).
We did all sorts of fun things together - like read...
and play in the activity gym that she got me...
snuggle...
We also went for a short hike. My dad loves to pack me in the Baby Bjorn so we headed up Little Cottonwood Canyon to hike Lisa Falls.
We took lots of pictures - this is me with Aunt Kel and the quilt that she made me.
My dad tossed me and played with me...
Then my mom packed me back down from the waterfall (please ignore the skewed picture that my dad took).
Well folks, that's been my big adventures...stay tuned because I'm sure I'll have other stories to tell very soon.
I love you all - thanks for your continued readership :)

So cute! Ya'll are looking good. Love seeing all the work ladies, tell them all I said Hi! I miss them all, not the work particularly (unless you catch me on a rough day at home, then you might catch me daydreaming about the working days!). But, Horrocks is the best for a working Mom!
