Life is good........

Life seems to be absolutely great right now.......not that life isn't great all the time but you know what I mean. Every time I turn around I feel like I am getting good news from someone about something going on in their lives and honestly lately it seems to be about babies. I work with great people out here at macon and one of our teachers out here had been trying to have a baby for some time and found out when school started that she was preggo with twins.......they were born early and in NICU for a while but are healthy and happy now and they are all doing great. Then the coach I share an office with found out she was preggo and I was like SOOOO excited for her. It's fun sharing an office with someone you can talk to about anything and you can give each other advice........and I have plenty to share with her about having a baby!! :) Then, a sweet friend of mine who was an alpha gam with me at AUM found out after years of trying to have a baby that she is preggo.......and my heart is still leaping for joy for her. Her and her husband deserve that more than anything and I couldn't be happier for them. And again, another precious alpha gam friend of mine just had her baby last friday and everything went awesome.......her and the baby are healthy and happy!! It's amazing how such a tiny miracle can make you so appreciative of everything and everyone around you. LIFE IS GOOD!!!!

Now, about my baby!! :) Addison just turned a year old 2 weeks ago and I just absolutely can not believe it!!! I have said a million times that I couldn't believe it had been that long but I seriously can't believe it!! Time sure does fly by once you have a baby........
We had her birhtday dinner with my family on Monday March 23rd (her actual birthday) and she knew that it was all about her. She was laughing, talking, and having a good time flirting with the waiter. She is a mess........and I love her!!
We had her first birthday party that saturday at the Mark's House in Pike Road and she again knew it was all about her.......we did an easter egg hunt since she was born on easter last year and we made easter baskets for all the kids that came as their treat for coming to the party. We hid easter eggs throughout the house (because it had rained for what seemed like a month and was too wet outside) and the kids took their baskets and found as many eggs as they could. It was so cute seeing those kids run around that house. She then ate her very own cake.......and it was PRICELESS!!! I don't think I have ever seen a baby dig in to a cake like that before but she was loving it. She ate way too much of that cake but I just couldn't stop her. She got some great presents as well and it was an all around fabulous day. Enjoy pictures below!!

Life is good.........and I am so blessed to have all my friends and family around me who make life even better!!! Love you all!!!
