Addison is 5 Months Old

I CAN'T believe my baby girl is 5 months old!!  The time has just flown by!!  She is such a sweet little baby and is a precious blessing to our family!!  We are so thankful that she is our baby girl!!  We don't go to the dr. this month so I don't know how big she actually is but she has definitely grown!!  Here is a little of what she is up to these days and then some precious pics of her.  Since it is Halloween I thought it was only appropriate for her pictures to be taken at the pumpkin patch in her adorable pumpkin outfit from her Aunt Mo.

*She is wearing size 3-6 month clothes.
*She is wearing size 2 diapers.
*She hasn't gotten any teeth yet.
*She still eats every 3 hours during the day but will go up to 12 hours at night without eating!!  FAB!!
*She eats solids 1-2 times a day.  So far she has only had apples and sweet potatoes and loves both!!
*She is so happy all the time and smiles at everyone!
*She loves being outside.
*She likes tummy time and can now roll over in both directions.  
*To me she looks a lot like her brother when he was little!!
*She isn't big on the paci but will take it if she is fussy or sleepy.
*She loves taking a bath still.
*She is just a precious little girl and such a joy to be around.  She is rarely ever fussy and we just adore her so much!!

My Little Pumpkins at the Pumpkin Patch

The kids and I are in Dallas right now while Collin is off at a conference in Nashville.  We have gotten to spend some fun time with our families!!  I will write a post about it all later but I really wanted to post these pictures cuz they are so stinking cute!!  

This afternoon we took the kids to the Arboretum to see the pumpkins.  Maddox had a blast running around and we got some super cute pictures!!  We just wish Daddy was here to play with us!!

Little Longhorns

As most of you know, we here at the Packer house are pretty big Longhorn fans.  This past weekend was the Texas vs. OU game and unfortunately our Longhorns didn't fair too well.  But my kiddos sure did look cute cheering on the Horns!!

Oh my my...does that sweet face melt your heart or what?!?!  I know it does mine!! 


Mini Mountain Trip

This past weekend we made a mini trip to the mountains to see some of the trees changing and try to get a good family pic.  We only went to Bailey which is about 45 minutes away because we wanted to be able to still get back in time for the kids to nap.  Since we didn't go very far we didn't get to see a lot of good trees changing but we had fun none the less.  Here are some of the pics we got.  It was a little difficult to get both kids to look at the camera because it was on a tripod and I just used a remote so there wasn't anyone back there to get their attention but we did get one pretty good one of the 4 of us!!

Ode to Apple

As most of you have probably heard, Steve Jobs creator and former CEO of Apple passed away yesterday.  In my opinion, he was one of the most ingenious people of our day!!  We at the Packer house are most definitely Apple people so his creation has defiantly impacted our lives.  Collin and I both have Mac laptops, iPods, iPads, and iPhones(**see side story below)!  We LOVE Apple products!  It is always sad to see someone die at a young age (he was 56) and I pray comfort on his family and friends during this time!!  Steve Jobs did an amazing thing creating the Apple corporation and has changed the face of technology with his computers, iPhones, iPads, and iPods!!  So, thank you Steve Jobs for your imagination and creativity in making all the amazing Apple products!!  I hope the Apple corporation stays true to your vision even after you are gone!!

**This past weekend my beloved iPhone was in a fatal accident.  I dropped it in a cup of Arnold Palmer (1/2 tea; 1/2 lemonade drink) and it is now dead.  Well sort of.  After spending 4 days in a ziplock full of rice it will now turn on but the touch screen no longer works which is a crucial part seeing as you have to be able to touch and slide to unlock and use the phone.  So, that means a week from tomorrow I will be upgrading to the new and improved iPhone 4s.  We were planning to upgrade anyways but if there were any questions at all they are now gone because I am using a loaner from a sweet family at church that I need to return soon!!  May you rest in peace my super slow and sometimes frustrating iPhone 3g!! ;)
