Happy Birthday Addison!

Today our precious Addison celebrated her first birthday. It's funny because it's hard to remember life before her, but it's also hard to believe she's been here for a year. She has brought us such joy this past year and we are so thankful to be able to call her our daughter. We can't believe how much she's growing up. She's just more and more fun every day!

We took advantage of visiting grandparents and celebrated her birthday early last weekend. Unfortunately, Addison must have been a little excited for her party and decided to only take a one hour nap that afternoon. That made for a slightly cranky party girl, but we persevered! Grandpa Liddick made home-made pizzas and Grandpa Gafford made the Winnie the Pooh birthday cake.
Addison kept taking a hit from her paci in between bites of pizza.

Enjoying her new laptop from her best friend, Ella.

It's a pillow, it's a pet.... IT'S A PILLOW PET!
Amazing how she knew exactly what to do with it right away.

Her response to the cake: "Mmmmmm"
