Today's the big day!!

Addisyn doing her work with her really
neat TAG pen from Aunt. It reads the page
and pictures. She loves it.

Love to play the "night night" game

Standing up like a big girl

Finally a smile

Have to do everything together

Loves to pull down the books

Whether you like it or not, today is the day for Obama to take office. We had such a great church service this weekend. Because it all said and done and all we can do is pray for our new President to make wise choices for our country and help us with this disaster we currently have going on. People are losing jobs left and right(thank goodness our boss is my father in law), wars with people having to leave their families for an extended period of time and losing their lives, the huge amount of debt we are in as a country. Just to name a few, I am sure you all know the rest.
My point is lets just pray for Obama to be a great listener from God, hope he makes the right choices for our country.
On other news, I added a few pics of my girls. We have been having potty training issues over here. Addisyn had a lot of accidents yesterday. Ugh and I just was raving about her. That's ok. Doing better today. Cambry was up last night vomiting and I was up with a sore throat and stuffy nose. Fun times.
Go Obama or as Addisyn says Go Mama. LOL

So Addisyn is potty trained. She wears a diaper at night and naptime but most of the time when she wakes up it is dry. We went to the dr this morning and MOPS and she told the teacher she had to go and no accidents that whole 2 and 1/2 hours. Great job Addisyn.

Cambry had her 9 month check-up today and weighted in at a whopping 18 lbs 8 ounces. She was 26 1/2 inches long . So she was 50% for weight, 25% for length and 50% for head. Pretty good. She had gained 2 pounds since the last time we were there and she had lost 1/2 pound and scared me. So she is doing great. Except both kids had a double ear infection. Cambry's one ear was really bad and Addisyn's were just infected but not too bad since she did not tell me. So anti-botics here we come.

They are doing great though. I am so proud of Addisyn and can not believe how easy it was to potty train her.

Have a great weekend and stay warm!!!

Potty Training Central

"Mom Seriously" face(note how she likes to have all the ponies watch her)

Her Cute Little Back Side

Enjoying Cake after her 1st time to go on the potty

We are going strong over here potty training. We started Saturday afternoon since I finally found My Little Pony underwear. She told me when we got them for her she would wear them. Did I believe her, kind of! You just never know. So I finally found some on Saturday afternoon and when we got home she wanted to put them on. We went through all 3 in 30 minutes. So when we got home from Church that night we tried again and she went a couple of times on the potty. I was putting her on every 10 minutes. Sunday she was better. She went on the potty about 10 times total from today and yesterday. I have no ideas if I am doing this completely right but who does. All I know is it is 11 AM and she has not had an accident. I am proud of my BIG GIRL.

So as I was typing this, we just had a break through. She just told me she had to go and really went. This is the 1st time. We are making progress.
Thanks to Kristen(on my blog roll) for the great potty seat and for telling me what she did with her girls.
Thanks to Bre'anna(on my blog roll too) for motivating me. She is potty training her 14 month old. Truly amazing.

Cambry turns 9 months old

Little pig tails

My sweet little pea turned 9 months today. This was a big month for us. Cambry started a lot of tricks:
*Eating solid foods(peas, watermelon,rolls,goldfish, cheerios,baby chese puffs,strawberries,bananas, corn)
*Standing alone
*Saying MaMa
*Playing with friends(Cora who is 11 days older)
*Walking behind a push toy
*Little piggy tails
I write these down to also remind me.
She is just a super amazing sweet girl. She is for the most part pretty happy. She loves to watch Addisyn still and wants to play and do what she does all the time. Pretty typical I am sure.
I am thinking the next time I post for 10 months she will be walking. We go to the dr. sometime this week or next. I will let you know what they say and how they are doing. For the most part her hemangioma is gone. I do not ever see it. It is there but barely. I am so excited. I look back and remember how scared and fearful I was of how it was going to grow but I should have just left it to God(which I eventally did after worrying myself half to death) and it turned out perfect. I thank him everyday for that blessing.

Christmas 2008

We had a wonderful, busy, exciting Christmas. I think Cambry had a great first Christmas. Addisyn had a wonderful Christmas and her favorite present was having her cousins in town. She loves them so much and they adore her. It is truly a sight to see.
Happy New Year. May it be blessed and wonderful.
