Happy birthday, Grandma Gafford!!

Addison heard it was her Grandma Gafford's birthday today and didn't want to have to wait until the end of the week to sing happy birthday to her. She asked us to record this little ditty for Grandma and post it to the blog for her to see.



This one was an outtake, but too funny to keep it to ourselves...

Bath time- Now...

She's come a long way since then! We now have a baby bathtub with a handy little hammock for her to hang out in and we've gotten wise and turn a space heater on in the bathroom to keep her toasty warm. Here's a video of a bath earlier this week. You can see she not only tolerates baths now, but may actually like them!



Bath time- before....

Now that I've found a way to post videos a little easier, here is a video of some of Addison's first bath in Grandma and Grandpa Liddick's kitchen sink. As you can see she wasn't such a big fan...

So much for clean laundry...

This video is from last week. I'd done like 3 loads of baby laundry and had it all nicely folded and spread out all over the couch. I got pulled away by a little someone before having a chance to put it back in the basket to take upstairs. Apparently Allie took the "you snooze, you loose" or "move your feet, lose your seat" philosophy, because this is what I found when I returned...

Smiling girl

Addison received this fun new play mat at one of her baby showers recently and it has offered hours and hours of playtime fun for her. With that has come a lot of adorable smiles. I caught this smile this afternoon as she was looking at her reflection in the mirror. What a cutie!

Here's another one with a couple of great smiles...

Gift card shopping spree!

Yesterday David and I went on a shopping spree with all of our gift cards from Target and Wal-mart. Haven't made it to Babies 'R Us yet... Here's our stash so far...

Addison really loves her new swing. I'm so relieved as that means I can have more hands-free moments in my day! Here's a little video clip of her first ride on the swing... She looks completely comfortable and relaxed.

Another baby shower!

We had our church shower this morning and were blessed by many more little baby goodies! We know our moms are both at home dying to know what we got so this post is for them! Many thanks go out to our wonderful friends who went to all the work to put these showers on for us this week. We really appreciate it!

First Baby Shower!

Addison had her first baby shower last night. (Actually, I shouldn't say the first, because technically a number of lovely ladies in Indiana held a gift card shower for us in our absence before Addison was born). But this was the first shower we were actually able to attend. My WONDERFUL small group girlfriends threw a shower for Addison last night. Here's a picture of all of her new goodies!


And to top that off, these same ladies are throwing a church open house shower for us on Saturday! I simply couldn't ask for better friends. :-) Thanks so much, ladies!

Small Group Reunion

We've been blessed to be a part of an incredible small group for several years now. Through this group we have gained a number of life-long friends and have truly "lived life together." This past October we decided to "multiply" into 2 groups in order to make room for new people to join. We had a fun opportunity this past weekend to join back up to see old friends and meet some new ones. Here are a few pictures from our evening. We got a real kick out of the fact that it seems like only yesterday there were no children in our group; just a bunch of foot-loose-and-fancy-free couples. As you'll see in the pictures, that younger generation is expanding and there are several more expected to join the groups this spring/summer! Such exciting times and so thankful that we could finally be a part of a baby boom for a change!
