Addie's School Christmas Program

The primary school (infants-PK5) at Addison's school puts on a Christmas program each year.  Of course I couldn't miss her first little program so Deanna, Jason and I all met at her school to watch.  It was short and sweet, but all the kids were so cute.  The infants were wheeled on the stage in their buggy for one song, and the parents were encouraged to come up and take pictures.  Addie was smiling and happy to be getting so much attention.

Christmas Card Outtakes

My mom snapped some pics of us in her backyard over Thanksgiving so we would have a recent picture for our Christmas card.  Some of them turned out really cute considering we just threw some clothes on and didn't really get ready for the pictures (Jason had just gotten back from golfing, and I didn't fix my hair).  That is our life these days.  Below are some of my favorites:

Merry Christmas!!!

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas!

After having the Christmas boxes drug out and sitting in our dining room for a few weeks, I finally finished our Christmas decor for this year.  I used all the same stuff as usual but moved things around so it would look and feel a little different than last year.  Our house feels super festive, and I was really happy with the results.  The pictures don't really do it justice bc the lighting wasn't that great when I took them, but below are a few pics:

Addie's ornament

My sweet friend Robin made us this ornament with Addison's birth announcement cut up inside.  It's
 so cute.

I have all of our packages coordinating in red, white and neon green paper and bows

4 Months!

My 4 month birthday

Other pics from the week I turned 4 months old:

Playing with her favorite toy at school

On December 2nd, Addison turned 4 months old.  Time is really starting to fly.  I am loving this age because she is becoming so much more interactive and fun.  

Weight:  14 lbs 1 oz (~50th percentile) (obviously we were a little off when we tried to weigh her on our scale at 3 months)
Height:  25.5 inches (~85th percentile)
Head:  16.25" (~85th percentile)

At 4 months, Addison.....
- is still wearing her 0-3 months clothes and jammies, but they are starting to get too short so I am planning to pull out her next size very soon.
- is wearing a size 2 diaper.
- is nursing every 2-3 hours during the day (when she is with me) and takes 3-4 5oz bottles during the day when she is at school.
- is sleeping anywhere from 6-8 hours at night.....although has been waking up more lately since she has been conjested and coughing.  :(
-is starting to grow her hair back.  Those bald spot she developed last month are filling back in.
- is smiling and talking all the time and squeals loudly when she is really happy.
- is starting to roll over from her tummy to her back again after having stopped for about 6 weeks.
-LOVES to stand (with us holding her up).  She likes to be up so she can see what is going on. 
- is sleeping in her pack and play in our room.  We have started talking about trying to transition her to her crib soon.
- still LOVES her bath. We still bathe her on a sponge on top of the counter, but she is quickly outgrowing it.  I think we may have to drag out her bathtub soon.
- has found her feet and loves to play with them often.
- made her first long road trip this month (to Harlingen for Thanksgiving) and did SO well in the car.
- likes to read books and really pays attention for 2-3 short books.  We read every night before bed and other times throughout the day when I am at home.

Happy 4 month birthday baby girl!! I can't imagine our life without you in it anymore.  You make your mommy and daddy so happy.
