Mie Mah visits





This past weekend my mom came out to keep Addy and I company while James was out of town. We had a great time with mi-mah here. I have had a list of things to do to prepare for the holidays and the baby coming. It was a busy time and we got so many things accompished. Unfortunantly, mom caught a nasty cold while she was here so she was out of commission for the last couple of days. Hopefully she is on the mend now, because I know this is a busy time for us all. Thanks mom for coming and spending time with us! Addy and I sure miss you already!

These are a few pictures I took of Addy today. She actually kept the bow in her hair for more then 30 seconds. Addy is at such a wonderful stage right now. She is talking up a storm, and giving hugs and kisses freely. When we dropped James off at the airport she was crying for Daddy and kept saying "Nona, Nona" (meaning Araizona). She loves her family both far and near. This week she also started saying "baby brother." I don't know if she really understands what is about to happen to her life, but it is so cute watching her try to figure out this whole brother thing.

My computer is about to die so I am going to publish this before I lose it!

Addy Smiling

I caught some cute pictures of Addy eating yesterday. It is so hard to get her to smile for the camera so I resorted to some funny face gestures and she cracked up! Luckly I caught a few cute smiles!

update

I know it has been a while since my last post. Sorry about that. Things have been pretty crazy here.

First of all Halloween was a blast. Where we live we have three days of celebrating. First the weekend before Halloween teh mainstreet in town has trick-or-treating at the stores. All the kids get dressed up and go from store to store to partake of yummy treats. On the night before Halloween they do traiditional trick-or-treating. It is a funny to do it the night before but everyone gets really into it and there are people out in their driveways ready to hand out candy to cute little kiddies. Then on official Halloween night they have a 200 float parade. It is HUGE!!! Everyone in town gets a spot on main street and watches the parade for hours (literally). This year it was a little cold for us to go out and watch it and Addy had to get to bed. We heard though it was really fun and candy was thrown out from a bunch of floats thus adding to the already large stash of each child. Sometimes I feel like Halloween is bigger then Thanksgiving or Christmas here. Its crazy!

Addy dressed this year as a duck! She was so cute going from house to house running after her older friends saying "treat, treat, treat" and "quack,quack quack." It was soooooo cute! I was so lame though and forgot my camera while we were out trick or treating so we didn't get any pictures or video. I know I am so lame. Oh well for sure next year. I will post some pictures soon of Addy in her costume, I did take a few.

Things have been hectic with me getting my brain wrapped around the notion that we are going to have another baby in the house in just 6 short weeks. Time seems to be racing by. I don't feel prepared in the least but ready or not here he comes! I am really excited not to be pregnant anymore though. I forgot how hard these last months are, when you are feeling so large.

I better run...we have a hosptial tour scheduled for this morning and I have not showered yet! I will post some cute pictures soon!
