too lazy to take real pictures

not saying that these are fake pictures, but they aren't as good as ones taken with my camera.

things have been busy/crazy around here, with addison getting new sicknesses quite frequently.

but i figured you were getting bored with my word filled posts, and wanted to see pictures of her! so here are some random pictures taken on my phone over the past couple of weeks.

yummy donut holes...

stuck in her car...

swinging in the back yard...

one of the many sick pictures (can't really tell she's sick though)...

finally digging into the valentine's day cookie...

lunch at chickfila...

cuddling with an owl pillow at target...

that's it for now! hope everyone has a great day! i'm going to try and stay dry here. lots of rain throughout the day (and a tornado watch until 1 this afternoon. joy.)

and there's more...

addison started getting better monday. she wasn't as fussy and was starting to get back to her normal self.

and then thursday she had nasty gooey stuff coming out of her eyes. it wasn't a ton, but enough to where i had to clean it out every once in a while.

and then my mom said it was probably pink eye.


so i got up early this morning and called to get addison an appointment with the doctor. when i got her up, her eyes wouldn't open because of the goo. she didn't freak out or anything though. she let my mom and i clean it off.

and off to the doctor we went. sure enough, she has pink eye in both eyes. poor girl.

it really doesn't seem to bother her. except when i had to put the eye drops in. she didn't like that.

hopefully the drops will work and it will go away in the next couple of days.

and hopefully we've got all the sickness out for the year!!

wee bit wednesdays

i've been slacking on blogging this past week. sorry! i've been super busy with school and addison. she's been sick on and off and we're trying to get her back to normal. hopefully i'll be back to blogging regularly soon! but for now...

{one} do you always wear your seatbelt in the car?
yup! i'm pretty good about that.

{two} do you crack your knuckles?
not very often. usually when i'm bored or nervous.

{three} what is your favorite flavor of gum?
i love orbit gum. probably spearmint or something like that. i can't chew gum now though because of my braces :(

{four} what is your favorite piece of jewelry that you own?
a silver ring i got soon after addison was born. it has my initials engraved in it.

{five} who is your best friend?
hmmmm. i have a lot of really close friends. i can't choose just one!

{six} what is your favorite smell?
well, i really like the smell of gasoline and sharpies. is that normal?

{seven} what is your favorite lunch meat?
i don't eat meat anymore. but when i did, i didn't really eat any lunch meat.

{eight} do you still have your tonsils?

{nine} do you untie your shoes before you take them off?

wee bit wednesdays

i almost forgot to do wee bit wednesdays!! it's pretty late, but i got it in :)

{one} what is your favorite breakfast food?
i don't really do breakfast, but when i do, i love waffle house and star bagel. i get hashbrowns and cheese eggs at waffle house. and at star bagel, i get a plain bagel with spicy cucumber cream cheese. it isn't spicy, and it doesn't taste like cucumber. and it's really good!

{two} how many pairs of shoes do you currently own?
hmmm. well i own probably 12 or so, but i don't wear all of them. my collection is growing though :)

{three} city or country?
it varies. some days i think it'd be cool to live in the city, and others i'd prefer the country.

{four} what is your favorite part of your job?
getting to know all different kinds of bloggers!

{five} what is your favorite junk food to snack on?
i can't think of just one. i'm trying to not snack on junk food anymore, but i'd say any sort of chips and dip. or little candies, like m&ms or something like that.

{six} have you ever been mentioned in the newspaper?
i think so. something for school. don't know if it was a club or sport or what.

{seven} do you use post-it notes?

{eight} do you have freckles?
a few. they aren't that noticeable though.

{nine} is it okay for men to wear pink?
ya. why not? if they think they can pull it off, go for it!

{ten} when was the last time you wrote a letter to someone on paper?
i have no idea. i used to write a lot of notes in high school, so probably then.

v-day gifts

addison was spoiled on valentine's day. what can i say?

she got a cookie, and my mom and i got one too :)

addison got a minnie dvd, an abby cadabby dvd, a lion, a little pink jacket, a pair of crocs (and she's going to get another pair too. i just waited until the last minute and couldn't find ones i liked), minnie socks, a cookie, and candy, of course!!

addison can turn anything into a phone. she wasn't a fan of the crocs, but i think she was just in a grumpy mood.

now i just have to figure out something for the easter bunny to bring her!

happy valentine's day!

today addison finally went back to mdo! yay!

since she hadn't been the past 3 times, i wasn't sure if they were doing anything special for valentine's day. just to be safe, we made rice krispie treats. and we cut them in the shape of a heart! oh, and dyed them pink :)

they did do valentine's, so i'm glad we made them!

she looked super cute today!

i had a dentist appointment at noon and then my mom and i went to lunch after that. then it was time to pick up my valentine!!

we stopped by sonic on the way home since it was happy hour and got addison a slush. she loves those things. and i love happy hour! i don't know what i'll do if they ever get rid of it!

it's been so nice today, so addison got to drive her car when we got home! we let her drive a little around the neighborhood and not just in the driveway.

addison even stopped long enough to take a picture with me. and then she drove off over my foot. thanks hun!

addison gets to open her present when she wakes up from her nap. yes, she's spoiled.

happy valentine's day!

i spy a little girl who feels better

this past week while addison has been sick, the only thing she's wanted to do is watch elmo and mickey. and any movie she can name off (toy story, cars, nemo). she didn't really have much of an appetite either.

this morning, i took her to get donut holes and she inhaled them. she had probably 10.

and she didn't say mickey or elmo at all this morning! we just played with her toys and didn't have to watch tv.

can you spot her among all of her toys? i think she dumped out almost all of her baskets...

she then decided to play with mommy's purse. i told her she could play with it for a few pictures, but then i was taking it away. it's my second baby. oh, and notice the undies she has on over her pjs. those are for a teddy bear, and she decided to fit her big butt in them.

she's still a little sick, hence the snot bubble, but i think we've made it to the getting better part of the sickness. yay!

we're just going to hang out at home this weekend. we don't have any big plans or anything. hopefully addison will be able to go to school monday for the first time in a week and a half! i know we both need it!

my birthday & wee bit wednesdays!

happy birthday!

i didn't really get my birthday off to a great start. addison woke up this morning around 1:30 and wanted to be held, so we went from my bed back to her bed to the chair and back to her bed. it was back a forth for a while, and then we watched some mickey around 3:30. she finally passed out around 4:30 or 5. poor girl.

this mommy is tired, but glad that addison seems to be feeling better now.

my mom went and got me a yummy birthday breakfast, and even put candles on it! how sweet!

it's supposed to snow some this afternoon and tonight, and i'm really hoping it snows enough to get me out of class tomorrow. i doubt it will though. colleges never seem to cancel class. if i have to go, it will just give me another excuse to wear my new hunter wellies!!

ok, now on to wee bit wednesdays!

{one} ice: crushed or cubed?
definitely cubed. the only crushed ice i do is from sonic. it's so good!

{two} what is your worst traffic pet peeve?
people who stay in the on ramp for as long as they can just to get 2 cars ahead. i'm pretty nice about letting people over, but those people just piss me off.

{three} what room in your house best represents your personality?
hmmmm. i don't know. since i'm at my mom's, i haven't really decorated any rooms.

{four} do you save old birthday cards?
i save some. not many.

{five} when was the last time you went on a picnic?
i don't even remember. i think it took addison to the park last summer and had a little picnic, but i'm not sure. we'll definitely have some this year when it finally warms up!

{six} do you regularly check your horoscope?

{seven} when you’re home, what do you wear on your feet?
i used to go barefoot, but now i wear socks.

{eight} what’s your favorite gambling game?
poker. i can catch on to most poker games. i may not be too good though!

{nine} have you ever written (or started writing) a book?
no. i don't think i could, either.

{ten} what is your favorite musical?
the sound of music. LOVE!

at least it's not strep

well, addison got over her stomach bug on thursday and moved on to another sickness on saturday.

she woke up saturday with a fever, but didn't act like she felt sick. she got a little sick (not the throw-up kind, but the other kind. know what i mean??) but that only happened once, thankfully.

we went to see my granny and she ran around and played, and she took a good nap when we got home. she still had a fever, but she seemed to be ok.

after her nap, she got up and just wanted to cuddle. by that time, her fever had gotten a little worse and she was really tired. she laid on the couch until she went to bed. that is so not like her. she just laid there and watched toy story.

i put her to bed and went up to check on her and she was still hot and was having a hard time getting comfy, so i ended up letting her sleep on me in her chair. we did that for a little while, and then we went and slept in my bed. she looked so cute all cuddled up! for a small girl, she took up almost the whole bed. she did sleep pretty well, but i didn't.

she woke up again and wanted to go to her bed, so i put her in her crib and she passed out. and of course i passed out in my bed, too.

unfortunately, she decided she wanted to wake up early. i heard her cry a little around 7:15, then all i heard was "mickey mouse. mickey mouse. mickey mouse." she loves mickey mouse. and elmo. especially when she's sick.

so we got up and watched mickey mouse. she didn't really eat much, but she didn't have a fever and she played like normal. she did start having a bad cough and a runny nose.

her fever came back last night, but it wasn't as bad as it was saturday night. she didn't sleep too well, but she stayed in her bed the whole time.

i decided not to take her to mdo this morning and instead we went to the doctor. that was the 2nd time she's been in less than a week.

she didn't eat breakfast, so that was the main reason i took her. i didn't know if it was something more serious than just a little cold.

she wasn't too happy to be there because when my mom took her on thursday, she had to get a shot. the doctor today was really nice, but addison wasn't too fond of him. he did a strep test, and thankfully that came back negative.

he said that it's just a virus and that she should be progressively getting better over the next few days. we'll know she's getting better once she gets her appetite back.

hopefully she doesn't have a bad fever tonight and she'll sleep good. and maybe she'll eat lots today!

oh, and on another note, we're supposed to be getting more snow. schools are already closing early, so i'm glad i ended up not taking her to mdo!! maybe i'll get a snow day tomorrow! but i doubt it.

only 2 more days until my birthday!

6 more days...

well, addison got sick a couple more times yesterday and also this morning.

poor girl.

my mom took her to the dr today while i was in class and they think she just has a bug. she hasn't been sick since this morning, so hopefully that was the end of it. but i've said that like 100 times, so who knows.

i'm about to go get her up, and hopefully she won't, you know, get sick on me. knock on wood.

oh, and did you know?

6 more days until my birthday!
