3 Months Later...

Our beauty is growing so fast. She is 3 months today. Wow, has she changed so much lately. What I've noticed most about her is how ALERT she is for only 3 months. It's like she is taking everything when she looks around. This weekend we put her little "entertainment center" thing together and her jumper swing that hangs in the doorway. Being so small, it's difficult for her to use these "funs" we discovered. Anyhow, she did like the both of them. i'll get some pictures of her posted soon. Oh by the way, she is hyper just like her mommy.

Two months more...

Oh my, our baby girl is already 2 months. It's crazy how much she has grown. She is still on the little side, but seeing that her mommy and daddy aren't big people, that she will probably just have to live with. Well, Addy has amazed us with her strength lately. At 5 weeks, she was already sitting up in her Bumbo. Now, at almost 9 weeks, she can pretty much hold her whole body up (stand). Michael and I just balance her by putting our hands under her arms, and she stands. Addy even puts one foot in front of the other, like she is walking. It's so funny b/c she is still so little. She's also doing more of the "cooing" and smiles so much. I didn't think I could ever be so attached and love something as much as I love my baby girl. I take one look at her, and my heart melts every time.

Our precious is growing so fast...

Addy is such a hoot. She loves posing for the camera. Lately, Addy has been so much fun. She has been staying up longer during the day where she showers mommy with many smiles.

Yike, IKE, IKE, IKE, IKE...

Well, to start off with, we are definitely fine and dandy here in Katy. Hurricane Ike did make his self known, but in the end, his remains can always be fixed, replaced, and cleaned. To give you a little info. on how we spent our night, I thought I'd blog "our story".
I guess with the last hurricane just being a "teaser", personally, I didn't get too caught up in the preparation and hype of Ike. I just thought I'd hear and see some wind and rain. Needless to say, Yatshi, Peanut, and I spent the night in the closet. Michael was on watch, which was a good thing, because we did end up having a hole in our roof from a vent or air duct thing being ripped off our roof. This leading to water coming into the attic and making its way down to the first floor. Yes, we have some water damage on our roof and inside on the ceiling, but the husband did his best and ended up "saving" our new carpet that we just put in in April. It was a mess (for all of us OCD people). The morning after, I woke up thinking, "Man, that's what a hurricane is like?" with the no big deal attitude. Well, then I walked into the livingroom where I saw all of our towels on the floor and a trashcan catching dripping water. I could feel the "OCD" kicking inside of me, like we had to get this cleaned up asap. Then, Michael told me to look outside...shingles everywhere, fences blown down (not ours to our surpise), our big pine tree in the backyard half standing and the other half on our house. All in all, we made out great. We only ended up losing power for about a day. Like I said before, the damage that we did have can always be fixed, replaced, or cleaned. Our lives and safety are what we are really thankful for.
Here are a few pictures of Ike's visit...
