Praise Baby

This is how Addison watches Praise Baby these days!

Pumpkin Patch

This was Addison's first Pumpkin Patch experience. Her enthusiasm didn't quite match mine but I'm not too surprised about that. We finally got a few smiles out of her or it was probably the other kids running around that did it!

Michael Buble'

I have to give a slight disclaimer before I begin this post. I discovered this "quirk" of Michael's AFTER we were married. :)

So here goes. Michael is the king of calling into radio stations to win all kinds of things. I'm not kidding. I promise every few months he's coming home telling me something else he has won. It's truly amazing all the things he has won. (Before I go on, I must come to his defense and say he is in his car most of the day for work so he listens to the radio a lot. He's not sitting in an office listening to the radio waiting to call in. Lets just say his job helps to facilitate this personality trait!)

So the most recent one in this long list of prizes was front row Michael Buble' tickets. Michael and I both figured he would be good in concert but had the idea of maybe selling them to make a few bucks. I mean can't we all use a few extra extra dollars these days. Michael got online and looked up front row ticket prices and wow are they expensive! Atleast, to me they're expensive. He must be real good in concert! Well Michael and I decided to put them on ebay and if we sold them great and if not we would find a babysitter and go to the concert. Well hallelujah! we sold them for $250. I never thought we would actually sell them but I'm so thankful we did. Michael's quirk is definitely paying off!

Auburn & Onion Rings

This past weekend Michael and I left Addison in the wonderful hands of her Mimi and went down to Auburn to see the game and stay overnight. This is the first time I've been away from her overnight. Don't worry I did fine for those mom's who are wondering. I didn't do any crying or anything of the sort. I enjoyed every moment of it!!! I love that baby but we all need a break sometimes.

So anyways we drove down to Auburn Saturday morning. When we arrived we found a great parking spot and began our wonderful day. The shopping was great but finding a place for lunch proved to be our downfall. We walked around for atleat 1.5 hours looking for something we both wanted to eat. We ended up at Cheeburger Cheeburger waiting 45 minutes to eat! So by the time we sat down to eat we were starving. Nevertheless, that 45 minutes were well worth it because when I bit into those onion rings........Oh my goodness, they were divine. Has anyone ever had them there? Am I making too big a deal about these onion rings? (For those of you who may not know, I LOVE onion rings! They are my weakness.) Ok ok I will stop now. I do have to restrain myself on many occasions but today was not one of them. I had just walked 5 miles looking for a place to eat so I thought it was ok to indulge and indulge I did. So after hamburgers, onion rings, and a peanut butter milkshake (I didn't drink it all by myself-I promise) we were off to the game. We had a great time besides the fact that Auburn lost.

Here we are at the game.

Sweet Baby

This was taken a few weeks ago at my mom's house. I just ran across it in my email and had to post it. I think it's such a sweet picture. (Thank you Gale for sending the picture)

Addison has a new trick!

I know I've told some of you how Addison is pulling up on everything in sight well here's the proof. She was just pulling up to her knees but now she is pulling up to standing. Just last week I came in to get her up from a nap and this is how I was greeted. She is so proud of herself!

Crazy Life

It's been awhile since I've posted or been on the computer. Life in the Cobb house has been a little crazy. Here are just a few things that have been going on.

We've been out of town a few times. Addison is in the midst of dropping her third nap to just 2 a day. Addison had a stomach bug while we were at my mom's for the weekend. Therefore, I had a stomach bug on Monday (I should probably mention Michael was out of town on a business trip). I will take a quick moment to thank my mother-in-law for dropping everything and driving up to take care of Addison and me while Michael was gone. There is no way I could have taken care of Addison by myself being so sick. I love you, thank you! And now this very day Michael is sick. Yep, it got him early this morning. So I have now quarantined (sp?) him to our bedroom and I have been disinfecting our entire house.

Anyways, in the midst of all the craziness I have gotten so many cute pictures of Addison that I can't wait to post.

The things we will do for a smile.....

I can't believe the things parents resort to get a smile or what I will do! During Addison's 6 month picture session I did things I thought I would never do in public for a smile. Usually it doesn't take much to get Addison to smile but she wasn't quite herself that day. She had her shots 2 days before which led to a fever. She was tuckered out from getting over the fever but the picture appointment had been set and we went. She yawned more in that hour than I had ever seen her yawn. So Michael and I resorted to every noise and face we could muster. If only we could have video taped us.....hilarious. I was doing jumping jacks (I got a few smiles) and definitely working up a sweat! We did get some great pictures and she was definitely a trooper. Here are just a few of them.

Funny Faces

So this was a phase that lasted about 3 days. She made these faces from the minute she woke up until she went to bed that night. It was so crazy. I was beginning to worry about her. Thankfully, the "old man face" was a short phase.

6 Month Checkup

So Addison was 6 months old last Friday which was also my 29th birthday (I'll save that for another post). We went to the doctor for her checkup and wasn't shocked by her stats (she's got some thighs). She weighs 19lbs!! - 95th percentile & not too sure on her length right now but it was in the 75th percentile. It seems that she carries all of her weight in her thighs! Everyone notices.... the nurse giving her shots, the photographer today, every family member....... They are quite chunky but soooo adorable. So at 6 months old Addison is doing the army crawl, sitting up, and eating veggies! I can't believe it's been 6 months already.

Morning Shenanigans!

I love the mornings when Michael will get up with Addison so I can sleep in. So the other day he told me to keep sleeping and that he would go get Addie and do the morning routine. So when I came downstairs Michael showed me some pictures of how breakfast went. I laughed so hard. This is what he showed me.

I'm so glad Michael can have fun with Addie and that Addie will tolerate his shenanigans!!!

Addie Laughing

We took this video a few weeks but am just now figuring out how to get it on the blog.

I was folding laundry and Addison laughed so hard when I fluffed/snapped the towel over her head. I've never heard her laugh so hard before! It's amazing that the simplest things can make babies laugh. I'm so glad Michael got the video camera and got this on film. Hope you all enjoy it!!!

The Beach

Our beach vacation was nooo vacation. I do believe that I was delusional to think that our vacation would be like it was the past few years. I mean I knew it would be different with a 5 month old but I didn't realize how different. After the first few days and a major attitude readjustment on my expectations of the vacation we had a great time but those first few days, oh my! I can't say I got much rest but we did make some great memories and learned many lessons. Next year we should be much better prepared, hopefully. :)

I think Addison had a great time beside the rash she had all over her - from what you ask, we have no idea. It started last Tuesday and is now finally starting to go away. It never seemed to bother her which was a huge blessing.
I haven't yet figured out how to make a slideshow so here are some pics.

Ready to go on vacation!!
Staring at all the other kids splashing about.

Sacked out!

Chillin' at the pool

You know she's really asleep when she lets that paci out of her mouth!

Fourth of July, just hanging out listening to the band.

Our first night back. I do believe she was ready to come home.
