*All About Daddy*

SO!!! I know sometimes we (mommies, wives, gf's, whatever you may... ) don't show enough attention to our Special Someone.. (Daddies, Hubbies, bf's.. ) so today, Addy and I are making it a "Daddy" day.. in hoping that he see's it lol!

Oh.. how i love this man!!! This was one of the happiest days of my life!! To know that I get to spend the rest of MY life with this amazing, wonderful, hard working man!!! Words CAN NOT express how thankful I am of this man!!

BUT.. do you see this little girl here?? Do you have ANY idea how much she LOVES her Daddy!!!!! Even before she was born, she would go crazy when he was around!! And now...
He is so wrapped around her tiny fingers!!! She is insanely crazy about him!!! When he comes in from work or being on the road.. the expression on her face is .. kinda tear jerking!! She looks at him like... "Daddy? is that really you? YAAAYYYYY!!!" And sticks her hand on his face to make SURE it REALLY is him!! (Definitely puts that little/big knot in my throat... EVERY time!!)

 I must say.. THIS was the HAPPIEST day of MY life!!! I seen a whole different person in him!!! He is truly an AMAZING daddy!!!
 She LOVES kisses from daddy!! (I think its the whiskers tehee)
We like waking Daddy up with LOTS of smiles and she tells him about her dreams :))

And I must say He LOVES her so much!! He jokes and says that he loves her more than Mommy.. I don't mind a bit ;)

 And this is what he does for a living. He works out on the road ..A LOT.. and works in Rain/Sleet/AND snow!!! But he hardly ever complains.  And he does this and works super hard so Addy can have everything she needs and most of what she wants!! He is tired A LOT, but we try to keep him happy and stay up beat all of the time.  We also try to tell him and show him how much he is appreciated and LOVED!!! He is one amazing man and WE couldn't be happier to have him apart of our lives!!

 WE LOVE YOU OH SO DEARLY!!!! And thank you for everything that you have done, that you do, and that you will do!!!
Thank you LORD for this amazing, wonderful, hard working man!!!

Time flies... when you're having fun!!

So... Miss Addy is 8 MONTHS old now!!! How crazy is that!! ( She still has no teeth, we joke that we are going to have to get her dentures when she turns *1* ) She is now in a big girl car seat, and she is crawling and into everything!! She is pulling up and will be figuring out how to walk before we know it!!
The cutest little girl I know!!
And we are starting to get LOTS of bumps and bruises on our noggin!! :(

We have been fairly busy!! I am now in school (it's awesome!) and I go every Saturday, which is extremely convenient.  And during the week, between studying, I am searching for new and cool crafting ideas.  I can spend so much time on here just looking at everyone's new creations!! I have also been practicing on my sewing!!! I can honestly say, that .... I LOVE IT! Although, Addy doesn't give me much time to do it.
Here are the matching dresses that I made for my Dad's wedding... All the grand kids looked sooo cute!!!

Bronson has been staying pretty close to home... and we couldn't be happier!! We love to have him home every night. OH .. by the way.. I am LOVING this fall weather!! I love having our windows up in the house and enjoying the breeze!    Hope everyone is doing well!!
  And if this doesn't make you smile... I don't know what could!! :))

For Fun :)

Okay.. Football season is here!!! WOOOOHOOOO!! I personally love this time of year :)) So for a little fun, I am sharing these, Priscilla Cook Photography did an amazing job!!


The past few months :)

So I have been MIA lately, because we live in the sticks and our internet really stinks!!! HA! However, we have been pretty busy and growing like a weed!!! As for Bronson and I, we are so happy!!! Addy has brought just that much more joy into our lives!! No one ever told us how fun this would be!!! He has been staying pretty close to home for more than one reason.  His dad was diagnosed with Lung Cancer in June and he has been taking Chemo and Radiation treatments.  Not really sure how this will all turn out but we have faith and pray that he will be just fine :).
 Also, Addy has been having quite a few doctors appointments lately.  Of course, I think my last post was when she was sick with a UTI and had to be hospitalized.  She was 2 months old then, and it was very ... scary to say the least.  I blamed my self in many ways, even though the doctor told me that it was nothing that we were doing, and that she was just prone to it at that time.  Well, at her 4 month check up... she had ANOTHER one!! (As you can imagine.. I was not a very happy camper!) So they changed her antibiotics and we went on our merry way.  At her 6 month check up, they checked her urine and it was clear however, the doctor wanted us to see a Urologist in Memphis.  We proceeded to do so and on the 30th ( this past Tues. ) we had major testing done.  She had to be put to sleep, and they inserted a tiny camera in her bladder and performed an exploratory procedure, and they also inserted dye to see if it would go anywhere and where it would go. RESULTS... She has Stage 1 Kidney Reflux.  It's good and bad news.  They rate it on a scale of 1-5, 5 being the worst.  So good news, it's the least amount.  Bad news... nothing we can do but her grow out of it.  She is on a low dose antibiotic for precautions, and we go back when she is a year old to have more testing done, to see if she is growing out of it.
Not a care in the world :)
