25 Weeks

During Addy's 25th week, I got her to sit up unassisted by me for the first time!  She is still very wobbly for sure and has to lean forward to rest on her hands but here she is!

"Daisy check me out!"

Addy Marie loves loves loves to be outside...especially naked!

And then (I took this idea from Tina), here are some of the many faces of Adilyn (all taken one right after another).....

We always have so much fun hanging out on our back deck :)

On the day of Addy's 25 week pics I had to work, so Mike took the pictures for the first time.  (Of course I had the sign all ready to go and I didn't give him much choice!)  It's crazy to think that this was the very first time I've worked on a Thursday since she's been born!

As always, Mike had much better luck getting our baby girl to smile for the camera than I ever do.  What can I say, she adores her daddy!

But inevitably, the weekly photo shoot turned into this.....

"Aw Dad!  Give that back!  It was fun to play with."

Happy Friday everyone! Our next post will be about Addy's first experience with solid food!!  Yay!

24 Week Pics

Getting a little bit behind on my blogging again, but I guess that's what happens when you're away from home for 14 out of the 30 days of the month.  That's right.  Addy and I just went to PA.... again.  This time we flew and visited with my family for 2 days.  More on that trip later.  For now, here are the pics from week 24.  Enjoy! :)

I really wanted a smile, so I tried giving her toys to see if it would help her stay in one spot long enough for me to get a good pic...

It didn't work ;)

Yup, that is blue marker on her lips.  She started trying to eat the paper, and this was the result before I had the chance to yank it away.

"Don't I look so innocent though?"

Next up..... you guessed it.  Week 25.  Isn't this thrilling?  Ha ha!

23 Weeks and More PA Pics

Since Addy's 23rd week was the Fourth of July week, I decided to take her weekly photos in her Fancy Fourth get up.  I had to get some good use out of that outfit, right?

Addy had a chance to hang out with her cousin Luca during our time home, so we had to get some pics of that :-)

Look at those smiles!

Very focused on the puzzle

4th of July babies holding hands :-)

Addy feeding Luca his bottle...that was the funniest thing to watch!

Wedding number one of two during that trip

The Penn State boys together again = trouble every time ;)

We had such a blast at the wedding at Penn State.  It brought back very fond memories of our wedding because the reception was held at the same place, and all of our same PSU friends were there.  And.... it was our very first night away from Addy!  I would say our first full night of sleep, but that didn't end up being the case.  We were up until almost 4AM, but no regrets.  Good times with good friends!

The following weekend we attended a wedding in Pittsburgh, which was also a lot of fun, but unfortunately I have no pics from that one.

While we were in Hollidaysburg, we hung out at Uncle Lee and Aunt Sue's pool a few times and tried to turn Addy into a water baby.

Definitely skeptical of the pool at first

"This is NOT as warm as my bath tub!"

"Whew, Daddy has me now.  I'm all better."

Tired babies.  Time for a poolside nap.

A few more random pics from the week:

Note Addy's onesie ;)

Addy's Great-Grandma and Grandpa H just relaxing at the cabin

Getting pumped for a photo shoot

What can I say?  These two love each other!  Check out Addy's smile!

Family photo :-)

So there you have it.  Our whirlwind of a PA trip.  We traveled (get ready for this) from NC to Hollidaysburg, Hollidaysburg to State College, back to Hollidaysburg, then to Snyder County, from Snyder County to Allentown, Allentown back to Hollidaysburg, Hollidaysburg to Pittsburgh, back to Hollidaysburg, and then home to NC.  All in ten days.  It was insane, but so much fun!

Fourth of July Photshoot cont.

We had a three day extravaganza with Aunt Tina around the 4th, so three days = three photo shoots for Miss Addy.  Here are a few of the pics from the remaining two photo shoots.

Ha ha, Addy's little corkscrew headband was always falling in her eyes.  And notice that she is reaching for Daisy.  She adores her puppy. :)

A little unsure of the grass

Love that little smile :)

Just hangin' with her pup

A great candid moment

Fighting that nap with all of her might

Love this picture of the woods....with little Addy at the bottom.  Just a baby in a bumbo in the woods.

Couldn't resist a photo shoot in her first PSU tee...and little baby jean shorts!

Whew, so that was the end of photo shoot mania.  Addy was such a trooper, despite the heat and the bugs.  She didn't cry at all!  More pics from our trip to PA in the next post.
