At Last...

Well, well, well...
I have been really slow in getting my blog updated lately. I guess time management is not a really big strong point in my life. I need to work on that. Well, Addy is groing by leaps and bounds!!! She is rolling over from tummy to back, she is sucking on her first two fingers of either hand, and she is teething ALREADY!!! Which, by the way, makes for some long days for Granny!

I started back to work January 31st, so Granny has been keeping Addy. I absolutely LOVE that my Mom can watch her! Nothing like the influence of a Granny on my child's life. No doubt some extra spoiling is going on...for instance, my mother gave her a tiny taste of some chocolate yogurt today. But that's okay, she seems to love pickle juice as well seeing as how Jonathan found that out yesterday. Solid foods should be coming soon...

Here are some pictures to get us up to date with Addy's growth!

Not too happy with Daddy!

Nap time......zzzzzzzzzzThis looks like the "Bend and Snap" from Legally Blonde...
So Sweet!!!This is at the Family Christmas Party in Houston Dec. 5thSame Family Christmas Party!Mommy's Graduation Day Dec. 18th!I don't know what day this is...but she sure is cute!Christmas eve, after our two hour ride home from the Christmas Eve service because of the ice.

Addy's first Christmas morning!!!Another family Christmas party Dec. 26th!New Year's eve at my brother's wedding. I remember when Kaitlyn and Riley were this little! :)Riley with his new baby cousin!Kaitlyn and her new best friend!!!Look at that smile!She doesn't always look disgusted for her bath.hmmm...I don't know what to say about this one...Deep in thought!Our baby snow angeljust sittin' in the snow!Kind of likin' it!All smiles for Mommy and Daddy!

I absolutely love this last picture!!! That's my girl!!!

I hope all is well with you and your families. I hopefully won't wait so long to post again!!!

Love to all!

Holly, Jonathan and Addy Page

It's Been A While...

I know I have not blogged since Addy was born and yes, she is now almost 4 months old (Geesh, time flies when you're having fun)!

However, I will be posting some pictures of Addy on here a little later, I wanted to show you two videos that I have found and absolutely love. It is a challenge to be a parent, and these are some encouraging words, one for Moms and one for Dads. If you're like me, I watched both of them so I know how to best encourage my husband at the end of the day.

ENJOY!!! - Dads - Moms

I am not advertising for this conference, although it is a good one for Ministers and Church Leaders.
