Camera Phone Video

This isn't the best quality of video since it was done on a cell phone, but still pretty good.  Addalie is a pretty happy baby.  Fortunately this was taken right before she got her first shot since leaving the hospital.  She weighed in at 9 lbs 1 oz today.

Sorry there are no pictures of Addalie. We came across these videos the other day and wanted to share them. We hope they encourage you as they did us.

As we raise Addalie, we pray that she will have this view of God and the world around her. It made us take a step back and realize again that as much as we love her, Addalie could never satisfy our hearts.

1 Month Old!

Addalie is 1 month old today.  The time has flow but we have absolutely loved every minute of her being a part of our lives.  Her 2nd check up was today, she weighed in at 8 lbs 11 oz and was 21 1/2 inches long.  

Aunt Kyla got Addalie this dress when she was on vacation in Mexico.  Thanks Kyla!

She was finishing off a diaper in this picture, but we thought she was still pretty cute!

Addalie - 1 Momma - 0

Well we are fortunate to have more family in town for the weekend.  Gam and Leah came in from El Paso and Abilene to meet Addalie.  So far they all seem to like each other.  Here are some pictures.  

Addalie with her Tia' Leah.

Addalie has a hard time staying in one spot when she is sleeping.  Here she is about to fall into the crack in the couch.  Thank goodness I was there to save her. 

Now for the best part of the day (because it wasn't me)......Sena was brave today and decided to change Addalie on her lap with no protection from anything non-absorbent.  As she was changing her, Addalie let it all go, and it went all over her momma.  

"It felt so good!"

3 weeks!

Our little girl is very alert and wide-eyed these days! She is becoming a little more interactive too. When she is being held, it seems she knows when we take our eyes off of her. She'll give a little whine and immediately stops when we turn attention back to her! 

Addalie in her crib watching her mobile.  It keeps her preoccupied long enough to get the laundry out of the dryer!

Addalie loves being outside.  We took her for her first walk in the stroller the other day, the she decided to take a nap outside while we worked outside getting the yard ready for Spring.   

She likes spending time in her bouncer.

The Ensors came over the other night and Mason & Brody really took to Addalie.  Brody was being really sweet with her by kissing her and calling her Baby Add-a-lie in his cute little voice. It was just precious! We think this is just the beginning of getting attention from boys! Daddy is going to have a hard time with that in the future!

Well today was a sad day.  My baby started crawling today!  Now I know it is not full blown crawling where she is all over the place, but it is significant to us.  As long as she can get traction she will not be in one place for very long.  So here is a little video of her scooching across the bed, and a picture of her afterwards.
