One would think after reading the title of this post that it would be dedicated to John considering the hard work he does everyday for our family.....but it's not. One could even think it's a post all about MY long days as a stay-at-home mom....but it's not. That's right, this post is dedicated to Addibell and the different things she likes to do after a long day.
Yes, her days primarily consist of eating, pooping, playing, sleeping, (rinse & repeat) but don't go thinking she has the easy life! That can be pretty exhausting I'm sure! It's been quite awhile since I was her age so I can't say my memory is fresh from those days nor that I can relate - but I'm sure it's a lot of hard work being an almost 4 month old. After all, how quickly do they double in size in a mere few months? I bet growing can be exhausting.
So that's why we like to give her a break every once in awhile....
At 5:00, here is her favorite spot. In the recliner with the Daddy while she lays back and enjoys a cold one (bottle that is ;-). Yes, at 3 1/2 months she is already mastering the ability to feed herself.
Here is a close-up. Check out how she holds it. One handed and just tippin' it back! She's a smart one. Anything to get the milk faster when the Mommy & Daddy start slackin' on the job.
Then, in the evening hours, she enjoys a nice soak in a bubble bath while she gets
the foot massages from the Mommy.
Here she is cheesin' for the camera. We've quickly learned the benefits of throwing her in the bathtub with us. The one drawback - she can now pee on me anytime she feels like it. (Yes, this has already occurred once).
A few weeks back, after fixing up her nursery, we all sat down and had a "family talk". John decided it was time to discuss Addison's chores. Just as he brought it up and was chatting with her about helping around the house, she suddenly started belly laughing right in his face. It was hilarious and perfect timing. I guess this is a good indication of how it's going to be when she's actually big enough to DO chores!
