"Don't cry because it's over...Smile 
because it happened." - Dr. Seuss

Today our little girl is 8 months old and since I am a little behind on the blog, I decided there would be no better day to post my first blog entry.  Since Andie is the primary reason I am creating this blog, I thought I would catch you up with some pictures that have made up the first 8 months of her precious life.  We are so thankful that the Lord has blessed us with our beautiful daughter and that he chose us to raise her as her earthly parents.  We are enjoying every moment and can't believe that she is already 8 months old!  She has brought us so much joy.  I hope that this blog will bring you joy as you take a peep into the Addison life :)

1 Month

Our first month was filled with great memories and many firsts, including a trip to 
Ponte Vedra with her grandmother Mae Mae!

2 Months

We enjoyed sleeping through the night for the first time this month!

3 Months

We celebrated our third month by dressing like a baby chicken for Halloween.

4 Months

We rolled over for the first time this month and starting cooing.  

5 Months

We enjoyed our 5th month by celebrating the birth of Christ, and by playing the part of baby Jesus in the church Christmas pageant.  We had a MERRY Christmas

6 Months

We tried several new solid foods and learned to sit up on our own!

7 Months

We had our first snow day in month 7

8 Months

We love the Spring weather.  Sometimes when Andie cries, the only thing that makes her happy is a walk outside.  She got her first tooth on Good Friday, she is learning to crawl, and is pulling herself up with whatever she can grab on to! It's been an exciting couple of weeks!
