Addison's First Christmas

Christmas was once again such a sweet time for our family. This year however, it was even sweeter with Miss Addison. We are so blessed to be in Baton Rouge with both families. It was a busy day for us, that's for sure, but it was so wonderful to see everybody.

What an awesome way to celebrate our Savior's birth, by being with those we love & being reminded of God's love for us. I am so grateful for the incredible gift we received when God sent Jesus, His son into this world. Jesus came as a precious baby, lived on this earth, taught us how to love & serve, and then he made the ultimate sacrifice for our sin on that cross. My debt is paid & I am free! Thank you Jesus!

Here are some pictures that captured our day! Sorry about the crazy picture arrangement (someone's going to have to show me how to arrange them the normal way, I can't seem to get it).

First 2 Months

Addie's already two months old. Where has the time gone? I'd really like to post more often, but since I haven't I'll have to do some catching up. Being new parents has definitely had it's ups and downs. I absolutely love being a mommy! It's something I've dreamed about being for a long time. I never imagined it would be this wonderful. It's so challenging, but so worth it. These sleepless nights,  hundreds of diapers, and so many tears are shaping me into the mother God has designed me to be. Being a mom is one of the most selfless things I've ever done. And this is only the beginning! Addie is just so precious. She's already changed so much these first two months. It's amazing! She's alert more, has the funniest faces, gives us smiles, and she's even making sweet sounds (coos, I believe). It's so much fun watching her do new things. Here are a few pictures from her first two months!
