Our Year in Pictures...Part 2

Addison loved the pool, the pink, and the princesses! 
Addison started standing up on her own, with no help...although occasionally the grocery cart came in handy. 
Our first Independence Day as a family was a very special night!

As Mommy got ready to go back to school, Addison worked on poses for her upcoming birthday invitations. 
After all, it's never too early to start thinking about a baby's first birthday party! 

Addison was informed by Mommy, much to Daddy's chagrin, that she was Sooner-born.
She was also assured that being the baby of the family would have its perks...someday.

September also saw Addison busting some serious moves...link above. Prepare to laugh!!

In between laps around the coffee table, Addison got all dressed up to go trick-or-treating for the first time! In equally exciting news, Mommy and Daddy got the joy of stealing Addison's candy for the first, but definitely NOT the last, time.

Addison is walking!!
This was Addison's month! She took her very first steps just before her first birthday! You can click the link above if you are so inclined.
Addison got her first taste of cake...and her first skin stain.
Poppy finally got to reveal his beautiful, handmade birthday surprise!!! 

We ended the year just as we began it, with a Thunder game. Afterwards, we made some New Year's Resolutions. May we all...
Keep our noses clean
Keep our noses to the grindstone
Keep our loved ones close, and...
Keep the magic and surprise of the holidays alive all year!

Happy New Year, and may we all have a better 2014 than we ever thought possible!!

Our Year in Pictures...Part 1

On this cold day, I was charitable enough to invite a homeless man to the Thunder game with me. ;-)
In other news, Addison discovered her love of polka dots!

Addison was the best Valentine's gift we've ever received! 

No pinching went on at our house...
But being force fed baby food was torture enough!

We celebrated our first Easter as a family! (Okay, TECHNICALLY this was March 31st. But everyone knows that Easter is supposed to be in April). 

Addison decided that rolling around with Zooey was the most fun thing she'd ever done!
We, as a family, committed to raising Addison in a Christ-like home during her baby dedication.


Addison gave Daddy his first Father's Day present!
And then an equally impressive gift...crawling!!
