Is this sanitary???


Addilynn has a strange fascination with her potty seat now. She has to “do self” when she goes potty, wipes, and puts her seat away. While she is putting it away she usually gets sidetracked and puts it on her head, pretends like she is puking in it, or swings it around knocking everything over in the process! puke

This was the same night as the first picture, she was pretending to puke in the potty. Unfortunately I had the flu a few weeks ago and although I tried my hardest not to puke in front of her, I didn’t succeed. She walked in on me while Dustin was at work and was horrified. So, I tried to be the brave mom and make it a funny game so she would stop her panic mode and this is what I get… a kid who likes to “puke” in the toilet! She even says, “I puke mama” in a sickly voice!

This is what happens when you don’t NAP

21months 020

This was from awhile back when Addilynn didn’t have a chance to nap. We had drug her from here to there and back and she didn’t have time to rest so when we got home this is what happened. She was in the middle of throwing a fit, because she didn’t want to take her gloves off, and fell asleep kneeling on the side of her bed!

My not so little sister!


Jaylee Rae and Ashton getting ready to head to their Junior prom! They both looked so cute. I just can’t believe that my “little” sister isn’t so little anymore. It makes me sad to think how fast time has gone! We love you Rae

Muddy Water and Dresses


Addilynn couldn’t resist playing in the muddy water at Easter dinner. She managed to stay fairly clean until later on in the day when she fell off the swing set into a soggy mess. lets just say that’s one Easter dress she wont be wearing again anytime soon.

Play date

Addilynn and Kelby playing horses. This was taken a couple weeks ago when Jessica and I finally got to get together and have our coffee or boffee as Addilynn would call it. I am sad because this wont be happening for awhile since Jessica has to work for the next 4 months but hopefully soon we can get the little tots together again.

Addilynn’s Toot


21 mo 022

Addilynn loves wearing her tutu! Which makes me extremely happy. I have been telling everyone she will be a dancer and I get quite a few laughs. This child's love of music and dressing up is the biggest clue!! I think it is hilarious that she can now ask for them and frequently I might add. To Addilynn it is a “toot” and if you don’t know what she is saying she makes it very clear what she wants. She may be demanding but she is sure cute doing it!

One of my favorite “toot times” was when she demanded she wear it to the store with her daddy! He asked me, “ Does she seriously have to wear this?” What do you think my response was!?

One sunny day way back when…. I can’t wait for more sunny days to come our way 

Wednesday, March 30, 2011



Addilynn swinging in the rain! She just had to go out even though it was raining. How can you say “no” to that face???

Saturday, March 26, 2011



Addilynn is a sucker for headbands and hair pretties. She loves to pick out her own and put it in her hair herself! She says, “A self, NO help mama!” I’m not sure why she puts “A” in front of everything but that is beside the point!. This was from a couple weeks ago on my day off when we were getting ready to go visit Nona at the salon and go to the park. If only I would have looked at this picture more closely BEFORE we went downtown.  We got to the salon and after she did some exploring, used the potty, and found the chairs that go round and round, I bent down to tie her shoe and to my surprise she had a pony tail around her ankle. You can imagine my shock. I saw a purple swollen foot flash before my eyes!  I was pretty much in panic mode. Luckily everything was fine, but when I uploaded the pictures hmmm… I saw the yellow pony tail plain as day. Who would have thought?!

Waiting for her turn


Addilynn waiting for her turn at the ENT last week. She was a monkey the entire time! We are used to it but I’m sure the Dr. was a little thrown back by it.

Lazy Sunday


This was taken last Sunday. We don’t get a chance to have someone take a picture of us very often (its usually self portraits)  so we figured we would take advantage even if we weren't all dolled up!

Winter Again

winter collage

Well, after avoiding the snow for a week we finally broke down and took Addilynn Grace to play today! This was the perfect sequence shot. I got her trying to throw snow and you can tell where it landed… right in her pretty little face.

Bathing Beauty


Our little model baby!

Tuesday, February 22, 2011



This was from a few weeks ago when the neighbor girl came to play for awhile! They had a lot of fun hanging out. Addilynn has a ton of little friends and every night before bed she has to list them all off. Blaine, Cody, Stacie, Beau, Paige, Brook, Chase, Aunties, Cat…. and the list goes on and on!

Rock Sledding

So rock sledding isn’t Addilynn’s favorite sport. She was very upset that I couldn’t pull her around in her sled!

Walking the dog… AGAIN


I am not sure why I started this. Now, it is all she wants to do anymore and it is freezing out. I just can’t wait for spring to get here so we can be outside for longer.

Singing and Dancing


Addilynn is in love with singing and dancing now on the Wii. Every night she comes home from daycare and her first thoughts go straight toward the Wii. Some of the phrases she uses are, “I sing?” “I dance?” and “it broke?”. The broken part comes from mommy and daddy telling her it is broke so she can’t play with it anymore! It sounds mean but we all can only handle so much TV.

Just a Swingin


Today was finally nice enough to take the kids to the park! Kelby and Addilynn had a great time. Hopefully it keeps them from getting restless for awhile!

This is a lion that was given to Addilynn. It has been such a great toy. She loves to ride it and give it loves.

Baby for Sale!


Shopping at Ace.

Addilynn decided that she would like to be put up for sale! I had to pay top dollar because people were lining up to buy her.

It’s a Rough LIFE!


Addilynn kicked back with her legs propped up on her turtle after playing her piano! What a rough life this kid leads. This was her gift from Jeremiah and she absolutely loves it!

I Fly


Addilynn and Daddy playing. Now Addilynn loves to fly her and Dustin play together on the floor every night and she always asks, “I fly?” Dustin throws her up in the air from on his back and she thinks it is the best thing ever! Besides her daddy that is.

Addilynn’s 2 Loves


1: Being Naked

2: Smelling my Scentsy bars.

Every time I get into the freezer she says, “I smell, I smell”. After that I have to get them out for her to smell each one. I finally gave her an empty one and she played with it forever. Everyone in the house had to smell it including sister and Bruiser!

Not Now Mama


This is my sassy little girl! She loves to tell me things like “not now mama” and “no no mama” these are a couple of her lovely sayings! I just happened to get her in the middle of one of them.

Baby Toys!

Baby toys never get old to Addilynn. She loves any sort of bouncer, swing, or jumper! Too bad she is just getting too big for them.

Year 2 NOT starting off great!

For those of you who don’t know this is the start of my 2nd year of the 356 blog. As you can tell I am off to a great start (this is my attempt at sarcasm) since I am just now posting on day 3. Wish me luck! Chasing a toddler is my excuse and then the rest is pure laziness.


Here is a picture from the 1st! She is at Alaina and Kyle’s house and of course it is way more fun to take a bath there because Auntie Alaina has fun things like colored bath fizzers and wall paint! She is getting squirted by Alaina in this picture! I am really going to try hard to keep up this year, but with our computer still not working very well I am hoping that I can. Good luck to all of you 365 bloggers out there. Here is to a new year of great things!!!!
