Our Beach Portraits

When we were on vacation we had our family photos taken for the first time! It was great timing since Addison just turned one. I chose the lovely Erin Wheeler @ Erin Wheeler Photography many months beforehand. She met us right outside of Ocean City on a quiet section of beach and sand dunes. To say Addison was not in the mood would be an understatement. She just woke up from a short nap in the car and was hungry and chilly. Kind of disappointing that we didn't get those big silly smiles, but what can  ya do? I have had plenty of sessions myself where a child is having a rough day. I still love our photos, and I already have some canvases on order! All I really wanted was a few of us all together, doesn't matter to me that she isn't hamming it up. 

These are some of my favorites...

12 Months

I'm late on this post. Maybe because I don't want it to be true!!
My baby is turning into a toddler.
Her 12 month stats: 20lbs. 30inches. She is around the 60th percentile for weight and 75th for height. At her two week check up she was in the 5th! The girl has done a lot of growing this year :)

She is changing so much everyday. She talks A LOT.  She loves to try and repeat what I say.

Words she says:
Dirty (diapers lol!)
Ba ba (bottle)
Booberries or Boobies (Blueberries haha)
Cheese (for both the camera & the food)
Hi Pretty

"AT AT" when she's doing something she knows she's not supposed to
"YO YO YO YO" - an African lullaby in her book hahaha

Words she attempts that I understand:
Assen (Addison)

She hasn't tried to walk yet. She is starting to stand for longer periods. I can't wait for her to walk, but then again I can. So whenever she's ready is fine with me! :)

She is the biggest fake cougher, it's kind of hilarious.

Bedtime is around 8pm and recently she's been doing well about not eating until 3:30am, I hand her a bottle and go back to bed, and then she wakes around 8am. A huge improvement.

She still takes three bottles per day and then the one overnight. Soon, no idea 'when', we will be taking the bottles away. It's going to be tough. She loves her ba ba's. I am not ready!! Cold turkey or wean?!

Her favorite toys are her babies and her new anywhere chair from Pottery Barn. It's adorable how she sits and lays in it.

This past month she celebrated her birthday, visited the hospital yet again, and took a vacation with mommy & daddy to the beach.

Her birthday was perfect, I'll make a post for that soon! The hospital visit was scary. She had a fever in the middle of the night and while giving her a cool bath we noticed one eye looked lazy/droopy. Not a good sight to see your baby. I was so scared something was wrong. Thankfully, after 8 hours of hospital and doctor wait, they said she has an ear infection that caused her eye to swell! Who would have guessed that?!

And the beach was awesome. It was so nice to get away. We ate out, a lot. We spent a lot of time by the pool, had our photos professionally taken, and we walked the boardwalk down to 'Sunfest'. I wasn't ready to come home!
