My good friends Katy and Monica were nice enough to take Addison's newborn pictures when she was a little over two weeks old. Addie was not as grateful as I was and was super fussy through most of the shoot. In her defense, I woke her up from her morning nap to give her a bath and changed her outfit one too many times for her liking. Despite the many meltdowns, my super talented friends got some pictures that I just love and know I will treasure. I could not decide which ones I wanted to post so prepare for picture overload.

Addie turned 3 weeks old on Thursday. We are starting to get in a groove, and she is beginning to feel more like a permanent part of our family rather than a cute little baby that is here to visit. This week, Addie started doing tummy time. I pulled out her activity mat, and she is moderately entertained for a few minutes on it each day. I don't force the issue and just let her stay on her tummy til she gets upset. She moves her little legs around and holds her head up really well. She tries so hard to turn over and move around but just isn't strong enough yet. Addie continues to nap really well during the day. Early in the week she had a few really rough nights which caused us both to sleep in her glider for the majority of the night. The past few nights she has done really well though. We started giving her some gas drops occasionally this week which seem to help with her fussiness. Addison is still wearing newborn size diapers and mostly newborn outfits and sleepers. I have a feeling she will be moving up a size pretty soon. She is growing and changing every day. Happy 3 weeks baby girl. Mommy and Daddy love you!!

Miss Addie has had lots of visitors since she was born. Unfortunately, her mommy was not great about taking pictures of all of them. Thanks so much to everyone who came by to see us, brought food, etc. It was much appreciated, and we have loved introducing Addison to our family and friends.
