Kitchen Fiasco

So this morning I started making dinner for the RM House tonight. I decided to make a chicken mac and cheese, and enough of it for 35 people. So...let's just say this...I'm not very good at making large quantities of food. Meaning, I started way to many things at once and was running around like a mad woman going from one step to another. Addi was in her high chair munching on Life cereal and thoroughly enjoyed her crazy mother in frantic Iron Chef mode. I even dropped a whole canister of flour on the floor and it was like a flour bomb went off in the kitchen. I wish I would have taken a pic of the disaster that my kitchen was, but I was too busy! It took almost two hours to clean up! Thankfully, Addi took a two and a half hour nap this morning, so I still got my coffee and computer time!
For the rest of the day we just hung out around the house. It was SOOO hot today, I just really didn't feel like getting out. Here are some cute shots I took of Addi.






Dixie was a wild woman today. This is an action shot of her about to pounce one of Addi's stuffed animals.


I also tried to put a bow in her hair, she HATED it.


Josh also got some great news today! He is officially a Phd. candidate!!! Yay Josh!!!

We also had a great time at the RMH. We met an adorable little boy who is a couple of weeks older than Addi. He was born at 24 weeks! We couldn't believe it. He actually weighs more than Addi does! He was just the cutest little thing. He LOVED Addi and kept trying to grab her. She didn't know what to think! We headed home after awhile and ate our dinner, which was....you guessed it! Chicken mac and cheese!


Addi did the cutest thing during her bath tonight. She would take each of her toys and put them in the little compartment in her baby tub, then take each of them out. Then she would look at us like, "I did it!"




I really want Josh to make me a cappuccino right now, but were out of milk. :( I hope everyone had a great day!

Please don't ask me what I'm doing awake at 4 a.m. because I have no clue. The one night Addi will probably sleep all night and I'm up like a crazy person. Agh! Anyways, we had a great day today! I'm pretty sure I gained like 5 lbs. in just today alone. Beware...there are food pics coming! :)
Rhen came and stayed last night so we had fun hanging out with her today! We were supposed to go to a play group meetup at Splash Park, but Addi was pretty exhausted from tossing and turning all night so we decided to skip it so she could nap. We went and ate lunch with Josh at one of my favorites...Canon Grill! I was so excited when Josh suggested this place! Of course we got the cheese dip, and then Rhen and I split enchiladas. I thought it was funny because I used to be really grossed out by the way Rhen ate mexican food(she mixes it all together and puts it on a chip), but now I do the same thing!


Addi probably didn't look at us the entire meal, she was too busy flirting with all the waiters.

I ate way too much and was in desperate need of a nap after lunch! We headed to the mall so Rhen could use some of her gift cards. I think I remember her saying, "I just need to run into Victoria's Secret for a few things real quick." I thought, alright, one store, no problem. Wellllllll......one store for over an hour!!! Hee hee, love ya Rhen! After about the 30 minute mark, Addi and I got restless so we walked around some, ate some baby pears, checked out the Dillard's baby section, and then came and got Rhen. Note to self: never shop with Rhen again. :)


Addi was thinking, "mom I'm scared."




Anyways, so after our mall trip we went to Sam's to get some things for tomorrow night's dinner. We are cooking dinner for RMH tomorrow night and I'm so excited!! I love Sam's, I could stay in there for hours...

Scott and Emma came down and took all of us out to dinner. We had wanted to go to Bonefish, but it was an hour wait, so we walked over to Bar Louie. It's so good, but definitely not kid friendly. Addi was the youngest by about 25 years (besides Emma), it's more of a upscale grab a drink after work and get yummy food place. My only complaint was the music was deafening. We each got something totally amazing.

And surprisingly I didn't take those pics, Scott did! We are all mildly obsessed with food. Addi was getting tired so she was a little restless, she did enjoy eating some french fries and onion strings.




After dinner, we walked next door to Orange Leaf for some frozen yogurt! I went a little crazy. They all made fun of me for my toppings, but I thought it was so good!





We had a great time! Thanks again Grandpa!
Hope y'all had a great day!

Keeping Busy!

First, all I can say is I'm definitely going to bed early tonight! Haha! Last night, honey child decided to wake up around midnight and then decided she didn't want to go back to sleep right away! We finally got her back down around 2, and then she woke up at 7. On the plus side, we took a mommy and baby nap together and it was wonderful. This was Addi when she first woke up this morning!


So onto our day...
Today I got some really great shots of Addi. I love taking pictures of her and she has learned to smile when the camera is out so it's perfect.




After our little photo shoot outside, we got ready to go eat lunch with Michele! Michele hadn't been to five guys yet so we fixed that today. I can safely say we all enjoyed it. Addi loved the french fries!

After our lunch, we hit up Target for a few necessities. Have y'all seen those new designer diapers? They sure are pretty, but I really don't get it.
That afternoon, Addi did not want to take a nap so I was pretty exhausted by the end of the day. I did find out that she LOVES to swing in her doorway jumper!


We went to NYPD pizza for dinner tonight with Treece and Noah. We had a great time!



When we got home, we were about to put Addi down for bed and we looked outside and the sky was the creepiest shade of green. I swear I thought a tornado was just going to pop out any second. I tried to get a shot of it, but it never did look the same.

And here is a little sneak peak of two dresses I finished last night. I still have to have them monogrammed and stitch around the pumpkin, and for some reason there is an orange tint on some of the ivory polka dots. But, other than that I love them!!!


Hope y'all had a great day!

Addi-10 Months!



Wow! I can't believe Addi is 10 months old! That means only two months to prepare for her first birthday party! I can hardly wait! :) Here are some things Addi is up to.

-You can say mama, dada, baba (bottle) and hi.

-You sometimes wave to people or to Dixie.

-You clap whenever we say, "yay Addi!!"

-You are still sleeping 12 hours a night, except when your teething.

-You take one good morning nap, but your afternoon naps are pretty hit or miss.

-You still LOVE crunchies, haha! I've tried giving you other snacks in order to curb your addiction and you've done pretty well with those. You like life cereal and goldfish.

-You love to play with my exercise ball! You just stand up and hit your hands on it and kinda jump up and down.

-You are still SO friendly. Just the other day in Walgreens you tried to reach up to this man standing behind us in line. It embarrasses me sometimes! Haha!

-You love books and stuffed animals.

-You are in size 4 diapers now!

-You wear mostly 12 month clothes, although I've been too lazy to buy you new onesies, so when you sleep you wear 9 month onesies.

-You are still such a cuddlebug, we take naps together sometimes and you just curl up right next to me and go right to sleep. I love it!

-You have four teeth. Two on top and two on bottom. You love to bite things.

-I'm pretty sure you weigh close to 20 lbs.

-You eat 6 or 7 jars of baby food a day. We've tried several solid foods, but you have texture issues.

-You LOVE yogurt!

-You are getting closer to walking. You can walk very easily holding onto something, so I think any day now I will just see you stand up and walk!

We love you so much angel girl. You are the light of our lives and such a blessing to me and your Daddy. We love you so much!

Wonderful Weekend

We had such a great weekend! We didn't really do a whole lot, but those are my favorite kinds of weekends!
Friday consisted mostly of me and Addi staying at the house and entertaining ourselves there. It's getting SO hot outside, that I'm starting to weigh if the situation is worth going outside for. I'm ready for cooler weather! On Friday night we ate dinner at the Oyster Bar. It was very good. I washed all of my new fabric, ironed it and made "plans" for it. Josh played his new video game. Yes, so exciting. Haha!

Saturday, we went to our usual lunch spot, Milford Track. It was wonderful as always!


After lunch, we headed to TJ Maxx, then we hit up Happy Hour on the way out of town, and made our way to Searcy!
We went swimming as soon as we got there, and Addi LOVED the water! We stayed in for close to two hours, she was worn out!









Landon and Cassie came out to hang out with us that night. For dinner, we scavenged the freezers and fridge for something to cook for dinner. Josh grilled pork chops and chicken.

I made green chile and bacon mac and cheese.

And Rhen made peanut butter kisses for dessert! It was so good!



After we got Addi to bed, us girl's sat and drank coffee and talked while the boys fell asleep on the couch upstairs.
Addi slept pretty good that night, she woke up around 2, but went straight back to sleep after a bottle and then woke up for good at 8:30. I made Josh get up with her because he got to sleep in on Saturday, and I really wanted to sleep some more! He's so sweet! I got to sleep in until 10:30 and woke up to a delicious breakfast made by Kyle and Josh. Addi ate two biscuits! We were shocked, but she LOVED them!


We really wanted to get some pictures of Addi with Libby(golden retriever) before we left, so here's what we got.





We headed home after our photo shoot and Addi slept the whole way. We watched Disney movies for the rest of the afternoon and just spent the day being lazy!
Hope y'all had a great weekend!
