Addison 11 months

I know every month I say the same thing...but I really can't believe she's already 11 months old.  She has been working on walking for the last month, just taking one or two steps.  But now...as you can see...she can stand up all by herself and take more than a couple steps.  She gets so excited when she tries to walk that sometimes her feet can't keep up.
She now has 7 teeth and is such a happy girl...even despite all the teeth that have come in.  Evey where she goes she is giggling, smiling and waving at people...even strangers. 
She is such a joy, and lights up our home.  Everyone is always fighting over who gets to get her out of her crib when she wakes up!!
WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH and can't imagine life without you!

Halloween activities

Standing in line for the pumpkin walk 








 Pictures at the pumpkin patch...



This year for Halloween I made the girls some Halloween skirts.  Addie, for some reason, didn't want to hold still to have her picture taken with the girls so this was quite the event.  Luckily, I was able to get a few pictures with all of them looking in the same direction at the same time!!  I sure do love these girls!!!

Addie 9 months





Our little baby is already 9 months old.  She weighs 20 lbs and is 29 inches tall.  Which basically means she is tall and skiny.  She is happy all the time and our best eater by a mile.  She is crawling all over the place and starting to pull herself up on furniture and walking a few steps before letting go and falling down.  She sleeps about 12 - 13 hours at night and LOVES to be outside!!  She has a way of always making you smile with her adorable grin, giggle and grunts.  She still just has her 2 bottom teeth, but the top ones are on their way.  Her sisters love her so much, and are incredibly helpful and playful with her.  She brings a loving spirit into our home and we are extremely grateful to have her in our family.

Elder Mortensen in Cody Wyoming








Since we were in Yellowstone we got special permission from Jonathan's mission president and were able to go take him and a few of the other missionaries to lunch.  We had such a great time seeing Jonathan as well as some of the members that have been taking such great care of him.  He really is a GREAT missionary!!!  His companion couldn't stop talking about what a great teacher Jon has been for him.  Brother and Sister Potts just adore him, and you can tell he is very respectful and appreciative of all that they do for him and the other missionaries.  Sister Wilde was the last stop and she was able to convince Jonathan and Elder Davis to sing us a little song...and it was awesome to hear these 2 faithful missionaries and the incredible spirits that they have, sing this primary song for us.  It was the perfect end to our day!!!  It was so nice to be able to see Elder Mortensen and see the changes in him...although he'll always be "the same old Jon".  He is working so hard, and I'm VERY proud that he's my brother!!!  We love you Elder Mortensen!!!!

Addie 8 months




































































































































Addie is such a sweet girl...and happy all the time.  We couldn't ask for anything more than that. 
Now that she's crawling it makes for some interesting photo shoots!  This was the best that I could do since she thought it was pretty funny to try to crawl over to me and try to touch the camera.

Addie Crawls

And just lately she's been saying "dada" everywhere she goes. The good news is that I caught it on video...the bad news is that it's sideways.
