Happy Birthday Addison!

I can't believe that today our little sweetheart turns two. Addison has really started to grow up and we feel that our little baby isn't so little anymore. Especially since Drew's birth, Addison has now become our "big girl" and "mommy's helper". Addison has been such a good daughter, that we feel like she has made parenthood almost too easy at times. The past two years have been wonderful, and we are so grateful for her sweet, fun loving personality, and for all the joy that she has brought to our family.

Addison we love you so much. Happy Birthday!

A Trip to the Pumpkin Patch

On Monday we went to this fun little Pumpkin Patch in South Jordan. We went to this same pumpkin patch last year. This year was more fun now that Addison is older and able to help us pick out some great pumpkins. It was so cute, she loved helping us try to find the perfect pumpkins.

After we found our pumpkins we couldn't leave until Addie sat on all the tractors. She had so much fun sitting on them and pretending to drive. It was pretty hard to get her to want to get off of them.

And just in case you were wondering what Drew was doing during all of this, here is a picture of her. She slept the entire trip!

2 Months

It seems crazy Drew is already 2 months old. Drew is such a sweet and good natured baby. We feel so blessed to have her as part of our family.

Here are a few things about Drew:

*She has been sleeping through the night for about two weeks.
*She has started to smile.
*She loves to sleep and have her diaper changed.
*Her favorite food is milk

Next week I have Drew's 2 month and Addison's 2 yr doctor's appointments I will post stats then.

Just Like Mommy

Now that Drew is here, Addison has really taken the roll of being a little mother to her baby dolls more seriously.

Addison likes to get out the wipes and diapers for her baby dolls. She also loves to put her cabbage patch doll in Drew's car seat and buckle her in. She will hold her baby doll and rock her to sleep while saying, "Shhhh, Shhhh" And lastly, my favorite thing she has learned by watching mommy (sarcastically speaking) is . . . feeding her baby. Yes that is right, Addison loves to feed her baby. The first time she did this I was out running errands. I came home and Tim said, "Guess what I saw Addison do today?" I had no idea so he proceeded to tell me that Addison climbed up onto the couch, grabbed the boppy, lifted up her shirt, put the her baby up to eat, while making this sucking noise. At first I didn't know if I should laugh or be embarrassed. Later that day without saying anything to Addison about it she climbed up to feed her baby. It was quite comical. Since then she has done this several times so I decided to take a picture.

So there is our little mommy in the making.

Yes that is right, Finally a new post. I have been neglecting my blog lately, but it doesn't help that our internet had been down for over a week. We are now up and running so I wanted to post a little update.

It is hard to believe that it is already the middle of October, and even harder to believe that our little Drew is 7 weeks old. It's crazy to think that we now have two sweet little girls and are now a family of four. I feel so blessed, Drew has been the best little baby. She mostly just sleeps all day and wakes up to eat and to have her diaper changed. She has been sleeping anywhere from 4-6 hours a night. Last night she slept from 9:30-4 and then from 4-9. (I really think I can get used to that schedule :) Addison started sleeping through the night at 2 months, so I am trying not to have such big expectations this time, since I know that isn't the norm. Addison still adores her little sister, and is such a big helper.

Here are a some pictures of Drew.

Drew definitely has some chubby checks. We can't remember how big Addison's checks were compared to Drew's, but we know they were chubby as well. We will have to post some pictures to compare the two of them.

I know I have already said this, but really I can't believe how fast time flies. We are loving have two kids, it really is so much fun. We are adjusting really well with the new addition. I think the hardest part was just knowing it was going to take me a little longer to get everyone ready and out the door. Also having to go places with two by myself. We have definitely been enjoying getting out and have tried to take advantage since the cold weather is soon approaching us.
