Something I Didn't Know About My Husband

Can anyone guess where we went this weekend??

You got it we went bowling. I haven't been bowling in forever. Jimmy and I have not ever been bowling since we havebeen together. Tonight I found out something that I did not know about my husband, he is a very good bowler! He had his own bowling ball and his own shoes... sounds like a professional to me (wink, wink)! ha! Well here are a few pics of our first bowling experience together. Oh yeah good thing I got these pictures because after I took a few they announce over the intercom PLEASE NO FLASH PHOTOGRAPHY!! Oops!
And who could forget a picture of my sweet baby girl... this is from the other day when she woke up from her nap with crazy hair!

He is Here...

Tonight when Jimmy and I got off work we headed down to the hospital to see the newest addition to the Osborne family, sweet baby boy Gavin Brock. He is so adorable! So happy for Jason and Bri. Love this sweet little family so much.

Addyson at 17 Months

Can't believe that we are one month away from being 1 1/2... Time goes by so fast. Here is what Addyson has been up to this month:

  • Got to play in the snow for the first time and by the way it was 5 INCHES not just a dusting!
  • Found out her Pa and Nana were moving to Alaska
  • Has become very interested in the potty, so trying to work our way into potty training.
  • Is saying a bunch of new words like crazy that I can't even keep up with.
  • Has learned how to open the refridgerator.
  • Went to her first Valentine party at church and had a blast!
  • Got some really neat books for her Valentine present and some pretty red heart balloons.
  • Has been trying to cut her 1 year molars for about 2 weeks now.
  • Visited Daddy at work a couple times and got to ride on the new Hustler electric lawn mower.
  • Has had some really bad Eczema the past few weeks.
  • Loves to look at books more and more everyday.
  • Went to a couple of dentist appointments. One to get her teeth cleaned, and the other to look at her long frenum (the piece of gum that attaches to your top lip.) She is going to have to have surgery on it soon...
  • Has learned to play hide and go seek with mommy!
  • Is sucha sweet baby girl... loves to give hugs and kisses
  • Waves at everyone no matter if she knows them or not

Look What Addyson Has...

It is another pony tail in her hair! I know that you all may think that I am a little crazy about being so excited about Addyson's pony tail, but it is a really big deal because she is actually leaving it in and not taking it out!  Hooray!!! Oh yeah and you can't forget about the bow in front of the pony tail. We can't go without that either!

*** Sorry this post is so late!! Was without my camera for a couple of days! ( it was miserable with out, didn't know what I was going to do!!!)
Well this year we did Valentines cards for the first time for a church party. When I was filling out all of her cards and making cupcakes for the party I was thinking about how that is  not the last time that I will be spending the day making cupcakes and filling out cards for one of her parties.The party was called Love Thy Neighbor party. It was so cute. They got to decorate little mailboxes to put their Valentines cards in. They also played games and ate some really cute and yummy snacks. Oh yeah and there was also a really cute puppet show too! Addy loved the puppet show. It really caught her attention (which does not happen very often) If you want to see more on the Love Thy Neighbor Party head on over to our friends blog!

On Friday Mom, Addy, and I went shopping. We went to World Market and found the cutest heart shaped pasta. (and by the way they also have the cutest Easter decorations there) Friday night we went out to mom and dads for a little Valentine party with a few friends. Mom and I made homemade Fettucine Alfredo with the cute heart shaped pasta. It was  yummy. We even decorated for the party. ha! We all had such a good time. Oh yeah I totally forgot we also set up the chocolate fountain... How could I forget that !
Addyson's first Valentines...

Tonight we went out for a little while and took our Valentine with us... Addyson. She let me pull up her hair in a pony tail and she left it the whole night. I was so proud of her. She took it out whenever we got back in the car. Well I hope that everyone has a good Valentines Day!
Addy with her hair pulled up! Can't believe that she left it in for that long! Hopefully that means more ponytails in our future!

Potty Training

Well Addyson has been crazy about the potty for weeks now. So we decided to bring the potty chair in and start to ease our way in to potty training. You know they say that there is a window for each child to be potty trained and if you don't try in the window your potty training will be a nightmare!Well I think that this is the begining of the window for Addyson. Addy thinks that sitting on the potty is so exciting. She loves it. The potty chair that she has sings and that is great for her because she loves music and it will encourage her to go to the potty! My goal is to have her potty trained by 2 years old and you know that is only 7 months and 10 days away. ( yes I am counting !! ) I think that the main thing that we will have to focus on is consistency and praising her for going in the potty. If that doesn't work we may have to resort to the reward concept. Maybe a few cookies (Addy's favorite) every now and then for going on the potty. I don't know we will see how it goes!
