18 Months

Wow is it really true that our sweet little girl is now 18 months. Like most of you, it seems like our little ones grow up way too fast. Tim and I are always saying how everyday it seems like Addison is getting bigger and bigger.

Here are some things about Addison

At her 18th month appointment she was 30 1/4 inches (30th percentile) and 22.7 pounds (25 percentile).

She loves to help us make our bed. She will had us our decorative pillows one by one to put on the bed.

She loves animals, especially kittys and dogs. She can tell you what a cow, dog, kitty, sheep, rooster, snake, chicken, horse, duck, monkey and pig all say.

She has moved on from her brown boots and now only wants to wear white shoes with pink flowers on them.

She loves giving kisses.

Some of her favorite foods are tomatoes, carrots, eggs, dill pickles, apples, strawberries, and mandarin oranges.

She loves books.

She loves going outside, she will bring me my shoes to put them on and after I put them on she will grab my finger and pull me to the door.

She loves going down the slides at the park, but isn't a fan of the swings.

She loves to go and get the mail. She will open the mailbox, say "ohhhhh!" if there's mail, and then she has to carry all the mail inside for us.

She loves to do the actions to the Itsy Bitsy Spider.

She loves her blankie and she calls it her "B".

She is still scared of the vacuum, every time Tim gets out the vacuum Addison will get a really uncomfortable look on her face.

She loves to play basketball. Every time she sees a basketball, golf ball, baseball she will point and say, "ball." (Her Dad has taught her well.)

She's becoming very particular about certain things. For example, at the grocery store, she will push Tim's hands away and only want me to push her in the grocery cart. She will even change her mind a time or two while we are shopping on who she wants pushing the cart.

Tim and I love watching Addison grow and learn new things.

Hubby Tag

I was tagged a month ago and I thought that it was about time that I did this so here it goes.

What is his name? Timothy Ben Shirley

How long have you been married? 6 years this October

How long did you date? A little over a year.

Who said I love you first? Tim did, It took me a little longer to say it back.

Who is taller? Tim of course

Who can sing better? Tim definitely can sing better than me. Singing is one talent I wish I had. I do however like to sing in the car.

Who is smarter? This is a hard one, I will let you decide.

Who does the laundry? Tim actual starts the laundry, we both will fold it, and Tim will iron all his clothes. (Fine by me :)

Who pays the bills? I pay all the bills.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? Tim sleeps on the right side of the bed.

Who mows the lawn? Tim mows the lawn.

Who cooks dinner? I cook dinner unless we BBQ then Tim does all the BBQing. There are a few things that I say are Tim's special things he makes like, 7 layer dip, cornflake treats, and his famous chicken. Tim does however help me clean up dinner.

Who drives? Tim does most of the driving. I do most of the sleeping when he is driving.

Who is more stubborn? I don't' really think of myself stubborn but when being compared to Tim who is the most unstubborn person then I guess I would have to say I am.

Who kissed who first? Good question, I would say it was pretty much mutual. We were hanging out at my apartment up in Logan, but then again Tim was pretty shy so it was probably me.

Who asked who out first? Interesting, I didn't really realize that I had asked him out first. I had asked him to one of my sorority formals as friends.

Who proposed? Tim did on July 5, it was one of the best days of my life. I was totally surprised, I even remember my friend saying what if you get engaged. Tim and I were going up to Powder Ridge that weekend. I remember telling her, I don't think so.

Who has more siblings? Tim does, he has 2 sisters and 1 brother, I have 2 brothers.

Who wears the pants? Tim wears the pants, I just tell him which pants to wear. HA HA totally kidding. I think we are really good about always making decisions together.

What do you love most about your man? I love his funny sense of humor. I love that he is shy sometimes yet he is totally outgoing. Tim is such wonderful and caring husband, and I love watching him with Addison. He is such a great dad.

Thanks for the tag Miche, It was fun. I am tagging anyone who hasn't done this yet and wants too.

We are having a . . .

Well we aren't really sure exactly what we are having. As you know we had our ultra sound today. The doctor wasn't sure and the most we could get out of him was, " I am leaning towards a girl." He told me to schedule another ultra sound for a gender check at my next appointment. Tim and I thought that it looked like a girl, but what do we know?! The fact that the doctor wants me to have another ultra sound makes us still wonder. As for right now we will just think we are having a girl until we are told otherwise at my next appointment, which is May 7th. The good news is the baby looks healthy and everything is measuring right on. I will say that we are excited to have another ultra sound and we think it will be really cool to see the baby in 3-D when she or he is bigger. We'll post pictures of the ultrasound later.

Say Cheese!!

Tim and I think Addison has a really cute smile, but recently we have found that Addison also has the cheesiest grin ever! Whenever we are taking her picture and ask her to smile, Addison will immediately flash us this big cheesy grin. Tim and I can't help but laugh each time she does this. I forgot that I had taken these pictures last month.

Here is an example of her big cheesy grin.

Addison loves her little Cabbage Patch Doll, named Zoey. I thought these pictures were so sweet.
