Workman Look-alike Meter

MyHeritage: Family tree - Genealogy - Celebrity - Collage - Morph

Apparently she looks more like me! I still don't believe it and when I have more time I will try this again with different pictures because I am sure that she looks more like Mitch.

My Two Favorites

ice cream: chocolate chip and cookie dough (mixed together they are delicious)
colors: green (have you seen my house) and purple
vacations: hawaii and chicago (still haven't been to new york or jamaica)
foods: spaghetti and enchiladas (yum)
holidays: halloween and christmas
stores: IKEA and wet seal

Well you get the idea but I have to say my absolute most favorite two things in the entire world and universe would have to be...

Aren't they just the cutest.

I love this picture because it makes Addy look so tiny and she has the sweetest look on her face. Too bad Mitch had to be talking to me, probably telling me to just take the picture, as I was taking it. Great timing. I still think he is cute too. The question is: Do you think they look alike?

Takin' it back... time! Mitch decided it was time for some new music on our blog and so we went with a little bit of an 80's flare. He also showed me this video (posted above) awhile back and I thought it was so funny. It brought me back to the old high school dances and stomps! We totally did the shopping cart and lawn mower moves. Hopefully you get a little chuckle from it.

PS: Deborah, I totally think that Mitch and Tyler should do this for a ward talent show!!!

Two Months

I can't believe how fast the time has gone. It seems that last month before Addy came dragged on forever and ever but ever since she has graced us with her presence the time has just flown by.

Her new developments for this past month include:
*smiling lots and lots especially when she sees faces and hears voices
*cooing and trying to talk (this is my absolute favorite)
*blows bubbles which I hope is normal
*found her fist and stuffs it into her mouth
*is starting to like rattles and toys and will stare at them for 5-10 minutes which seems like a long time for a baby
*LOVES the swing which is absolutely wonderful because I can now fix dinner and clean the house while she is very content
*has rolled over a total of 4 times but it is always sporatic and so I am sure this next month it will become more regular
*most nights she will sleep 6-8 hours straight which is TERRIFIC!!!

Once again I am sure that there is tonz more but for now that is what I can think of. And of course some pictures to show what I mean.

Pretty soon it will be more than just the fist that goes into the mouth.

The silly faces she makes for dad.

Starring intently at the toys.

She also got her shots yesterday and you can see how happy she was when we came back home :( It just breaks your heart but at least she got some cool tarzan bandaids!

With the face of an angel

We have had a very fun-filled weekend (plus a few extra days) with lots of family, food, games, shopping and well lots of laughs as usual. Thanks again to everyone who came up for the baby blessing it was great to see all of you. For those of you who were unable to make it, don't worry I took tonz of pictures. How can you help it when everyone says your little girl looks just like a doll?

This was a very special day for us. One that I have been waiting for for a very long time. It was weird because it was one of those things that made me realize just how hard it was for me to watch other people bless their babies when I was so desperately wanting one for my own. Back then I didn't realize how hard it was because I would just push it deep down but sitting in church on Sunday while Mitch was blessing Addisyn brought all those feelings back and I couldn't believe it was finally my turn. And for all of you still wanting and waiting to have kids you may or may not have the same sort of experience but wow it will still be an amazing day. It is crazy to think of how precious little babies are, not just to us but also to our Heavenly Father. They just so recently left his presence and I know that he is just looking over them. Hopefully I can do my part as a mom and teach her all she needs to know and do to return back to him someday. Yes, the song "I am a child of god" has a whole new meaning to me.

So back to these beautiful pictures.

This is the dress I made while in college and taking a child sewing class. At the time I was dating Mitch and so he would come sit with me in the sewing lab while I worked on it. I had to make a few alterations because it was ginormous on her but overall I am very impressed with myself!

Aunt Lindsay made this stuffed bunny by hand and it is so adorable.

Everyone who made it up except for Ben and Gail who had to leave early.

And of course a family picture.

You're Invited

This sunday we are having Addisyn's baby blessing. Since I don't have everyone's phone number to call, I figure this works just as good. Our sacrament meeting starts at 1:00pm and then we will be having a little luncheon at our house afterwards. I know that lots of you who read this are too far to come but for those of you close enough, we hope you can make it but understand if you can't. If you need the address and/or directions just leave a comment and we will get them to you. Hope to see some of you this weekend!

Happy Halloween

It just so happens that Halloween is one of my most favorite holidays and I really think it is just because of the crazy's that run around, kids and adults. I love seeing all the kids in their costumes, although I did not like the kid who stood at the front door and kept asking for more candy, I do love running up and down the stairs to get the door every couple minutes, carving pumpkins, making crazy food, etc. Pretty much I just love everything about Halloween, accept the greedy kids.

This year I feel like the time just went by too fast and all of a sudden it was Halloween day and we still hadn't picked out a pumpkin and I had no crazy food planned for dinner. In large part this is because of an enrichment activity I am in charge of that takes most of my spare time when the baby is asleep. Needless to say, I was slightly disappointed in myself.

But we did however take a trip to Albertsons to get a pumpkin and it was carved by the time the tricker treaters arrived and we did decorate the outside of the house and went to the neighborhood trunk or treat.

This is why Mitch is incharge of the actual cutting of the pumpkin because he does it much faster than I do!

Whose idea do you think this was?

You can't really see in this picture but we also have skeleton bones in the dirt by the front door. Soo scary!
