Bumps and bruises...

This past weekend began with quite a bit of trauma. We were at the gym, finishing up our swim class and Keatyn got her little fingers slammed in the can't see it in the picture, but I wanted to show how sweet these little hands are and express the sheer pain that she was in. It was very sad.

The first picture shows you a large scratch on her forehead and a bruise. We were visiting some friends for a birthday party and we stayed around for the after party. This was our party favor...Keatyn and her little friend were running in the house (one of those things moms say NOT to do) and the next we heard was a loud thud and a loud cry. Keatyn had gone head first into the wall and left a nice little dent. Luckily, her knot popped out quickly and she recovered quite well.

All in all the weekend ended up fine, but not without some bumps and bruises.

Our CRAZY life...

It has been too long since I blogged last. We have been soooooo busy. Our embroidery business has blown up, which is a GREAT thing, but it does put a lot of other things on the back burner. And you know that I LOVE to blog, so I am a bit disappointed in myself. I will try to do better...I promise. Here are a few pictures to catch you up.
Addilyn is 4months old and as sweet as she can be.
Stephen's team at work sent us these cute outfits and so I took some pictures to make a thankyou note...I love this little outfit.
We started cereal about a week ago. As with most was highly unsuccessful. But fun!!
She took the spoon, but didn't know much past that.
Sheer agony in that face.
A milestone...she holds her rattle and also tries to get her paci in her mouth by herself.
We are having so much fun and Keatyn absolutely adores her. I love to watch them interact. Now that Addilyn is awake more and has much more expression, Keatyn enjoys making her smile and coo.

Bare with me...we're dealing with a milestone here!!!! I tried to get these in order, but it didn't you are seeing the end results first.
She rolled over. Not from her tummy to her back, but from her back to her tummy. Keatyn did it the other way, so I just expected Addilyn to do it that way.

Here she was gearing up for the final push.
And here too...we had to try several times before she actually made it over.
Look at that double chin...LOVE IT...she is now pulling her legs up all the time. No laying flat for this one anymore.
Here was some good ole' tummy time...if you look really close, you can see the drool coming out of her mouth...she was working so hard!

And this is posed...

Aren't they cute!

She was on the verge of a laugh...she cracks us up!

I know she is mine, but isn't she the cutest thing you've ever seen? She HATES being hot, so this little outdoor time didn't last long. But her outfit sure was cute!

The class of '98 had their reunion this weekend, so we got to spend some good quality time with some old friends. Unfortunately, we weren't able to spend near enough time. The Adams will definitely have to come back next summer ...maybe our house will be finished by then.
One of my dear friends from High School and college is expecting and so we went to a baby shower for her while all of her friends were in for the reunion.
During my time in Longview, I met with a group of girls once a week. This was a very special time for me. During that time 4 out of the 6 of us were pregnant and now have little ones about the same age. A few nights ago we got together for dinner to bid farewell to Vanessa. What a special time!!! I ate way to much sushi...
