33 and 34 Weeks

Time for me to get all caught up with my posting.  Here are Addy's weekly pics from the past two weeks, and then tomorrow she will be 8 months old!

I believe she is saying, "I'd prefer if you pick me up right now instead of taking these dumb pictures."

This is what happens with my sign every week within seconds of laying it down next to her.  I have to be very quick about obtaining my pictures, and I've given up on always getting a smile. ;)

Not the most lady like pose in the world, but it was the best I could get.  Ha ha!

This little blue tray is her favorite part of the elaborate step and play piano that Mike bought her.  It's the little things :)

A little cross eyed ;)

As of the past few weeks, I would definitely say that Addy's favorite activity is jumping around in her doorway jumper, especially in her PSU slippers! ......

It's so cute how she holds on to the handles!

I love this.  In the previous picture I was annoyed that the little toy on the tray blocked her smile , so I took it off.  Addy immediately went into scientist mode, exploring every crevice of that tray since I dismounted the toy.  Ha ha, our little explorer!

Happy girl!

Saturday, for the Penn State game, Addy decided to sport the shirt and headband to support her team.....
And the bib....momentarily...until she decided to try to eat it.

I adore that toothless, gummy grin :)

Notice how another one of her favorite toys made it into the background?  Yup, that red rubber bracelet still intrigues her.

When I first put the PSU outfit on Addy, Mike said that she looked like a boy, so out came the headband...which she immediately proceeded to pull off.  I've figured out that the trick is to put it on and then quickly distract her so that she forgets she's wearing it.  Of course, as any good PSU child, Addy has the cheerleader outfit too, but we decided to save that one for a game when we have people over, or if we go out to watch one.  If that ever happens.  If not, then she will wear it proudly for her parents to oooh and ahhh over.  And perhaps there will be a picture or two :)

So that's the scoop from the past two weeks.  It is 7:54 AM and Addy is still asleep.  I seriously have to wake her up almost every morning.  If she's not up by 8, I wake her.  Crazy, I know.  But I find that her day goes more smoothly if she's up around 8.  We put her in a disposable diaper last night with lots of diaper cream, so we'll see how that rash looks this morning.  Poor, poor Addy.  Although I honestly think I took it a lot worse than she did.  I felt so terrible all day and I cried about it again.  Addy spent a lot of the day in the nude with her mom fanning her fanny, so she was happy as a clam.  Ha ha!  The things we do for our children.


  1. Ack! I love how so many pictures of her are smiling now - the PSU ones are priceless! I can't wait to come todayyyyy:)

  2. She seems happiest when wearing Penn State apparel!!!
