Ok so not quite, but she is really close and even took a few steps the other day without help. The blog worthy part of it is this. We were at play group at the church and my friend who used to watch her was there and playing with her. side note, I don't know why but Alisha's little girl can always make Addison laugh. It is the coolest thing. Anyway, she asked if Addison was walking yet and I said not on her own. She happened to be holding her up and right then she looked at me and just started coming toward me. She took like 4 steps before going down. I swear she did it out of spite. She's so her dad!!

I had bought a cute headband for Addison to wear for Halloween, but she can't stand anything on her head. It's really me fault, I never put those silly little baby ones on her head when she was younger. I just don't like them that much, and she always had plenty of hair. But it did keep her busy for about a minute!

Our friend Janie is the cutest Aunt to her nieces, and decided to send Addison a Halloween card along with a dollar bill. She really liked it.

Here are some pictures to catch you up. I have been kind of busy, but mostly just can't find 30 min. to come downstairs and download them.
The first 2 are of Addison doing what she love best, emptying a box full of something. She does it several times a day to her books, toys and my boxes of stuff all around the house. It is quite fun to watch though. She will take out each item individually and look at is for a second before throwing as far as she can chuck it behind her. John hopes that's a sign of good motor skill for sports, though I can't recall any that require you to though something behind you.

Ok, so it's been a while, but I really don't have much to tell. I did a Visiting Teaching conference last week that consumed all my extra time. Addison is walking with the help of just one finger, but no step on her own yet. I keep trying to convince her she can do it, she is physically capable, but just lacks the confidence. What are you going to do with that 11 month old who lacks confidence. John had a week off from house work, he had too much other stuff to catch up on. My yard is almost cleared of shingles. It has taken hours and many dumps to get rid of them. I just want to be able to mow my lawn again. It is getting colder. We have already turned on the heater at night because John is paranoid that Addison will get too cold. I think that he has forgotten that she emits about 1000 btus. My point was, fall is here. The leaves are changing, the grass is dying, and it is usually beautiful weather for walks. We have been taking a walk almost everyday. This is for both me and Addison. Addison because she loves to be out side, but tends to eat the grass. Me because by 4pm I need a break from the baby talk/whining. I have found that it takes a half an hour to get her to fall asleep. Sorry, we really are quite boring.
FYI: I am working on some bread recipes to post.
