Happy 6 months, Addie!

A half a year ago today, I was sitting at Baptist Hospital... loving my pain meds... finally eating something besides clear liquids... watching people come in and out of our room... and I didn't have a clue about the journey I was about to begin.  I also got to see this beauty for the very first time. :)

My little Adelyn Noelle was so tiny... so swollen... and so dependent on all of the tubes that surrounded her. 

I vividly remember the first time I got to touch her sweet miniature hand.  I didn't want to let go.

Well, praise God for miracles... and fast-forward to today!

Here is the little bit on her 6 month birthday!

She's come a long way, huh?! :)
We like this pic!  She is Miss Movey Moverson lately!  She barely sat still enough for us to take these pictures today. :)

Here are her stats:

Weight: 11 pounds, 8 ounces! :)  Hooray!
Height: 23 inches
Clothes size: 0-3 month
Diapers: size 1

Addie loves to play!  She is so much fun!  Here she is in her exersaucer she got from her friends Dean and Laura.  She is just able to sit and hold herself up... for a little while anyway. :)  We practice in it from time to time to help her get stronger.  She loves looking at all of the fun stuff on there!

She also loves the animals on her playmat!  I think she has fun "talking" to them every day. :)  Aunt Azlyn sent her the owl, and she loves the cool patterns on his feet!  Mommy does have the dolphin nearby. :)  Also, this pic shows one of my fave outfits.  My dear friend, Lizzy, sent it to her... and it's just perfect.  Miracles happen.  All of these pictures are proof. :)

Addie is quite the fan of chewing.  She loves to chew on bibs, clothes, her fist... whatever she can find.  She is also a little girl who drools a LOT!  I'm thinking some little teeth are in our near future.  Yikes!

Her personality is the best!  Addie smiles and giggles all the time!  I think she's laughing at how goofy we act sometimes... 

 Addie is now a grabber!  I was changing her a few days ago, and I noticed her concentrating on her little birdie friend.  I ran and got the camera and she grabbed it quite a few times!  I was way excited, and she was so proud of herself!

I have a hard time deciding what time of day is my absolute favorite.  It's a toss up between mornings and bath time.  Both are so. much. fun!  I finally remembered to bring the camera in with us one morning and was able to capture some morning smiles!  It takes a minute for her to focus and realize what's going on... but then she's like, "Hey!  I know you guys!  Y'all are so fun!" :)  (Is it weird that I talk for her all the time?  I blame it on "Look Who's Talking." :)

Well, Addie... you are still the light of our lives, 
and we LOVE being with you each day! 
We love you so much!
Mama and Daddy
