Its been WAY TO LONG...

So I was looking through all my old post and love how I have all those years documented.  I used to think I blogged too much, but today I am grateful for all those blogs.  I am going to pick this blog back up because so many amazing things are going on and I want to share these with my family and friends.

I am not on Facebook but you can also follow me on Instagram at asadler0612.

-he is eating EVERYTHING you put infront of him
-he is using sign language for eat, milk, more, and all done
-his first "big" word was cracker and he uses it whenever he wants food
-he just started walking (April)-only taking a few steps at a time
-he loves to have help while walking around and kicking a ball
-he has found his voice when it comes to putting Addison in "her place"

He is such a sweet little boy and we love him so much!

Here are some pictures from his Birthday Party

Update on the kiddos

Ethan and Addison are continuing to grow fast.  March will be a big month for them.  Addison will be 3 and Ethan will be 1!  It is so hard to believe. 

Ethan is on the move big time now.  He is crawling everywhere and pulling up on everything!  His mommy is still his favorite :)  If I'm in the room he always wants me to be near.  He will wave to you if you say hi or bye.  He says momma, dada, aga (addison), and cup.  If he is crying and you tell him to find his paci he will reach for his strap and put it in his mouth.  He loves to dance and sing the Bumpy Road song (a little song we made up as we go to daycare).  He is learning the word no very well.  After a couple of times saying "no" he moves on to something else.  He loves Addison but is sometimes annoyed by her always taking his toys away and being bossy.  He doesn't know yet that she means no harm in doing so.  He is going through a little "scared" stage.  Any sudden noise will scare him and he makes the cutest face as he begins to cry.  Overall, he is a very happy good baby.  He always smiles at everyone.

Addison is maturing very quickly.  Her language and vacabulary impresses us everyday.  She is the most considerate person and is always thinking about everyone else.  She is in a stage where she wants to learn about everything.  She has the best memory when it comes to events or things said in the past.  She knows most of her letter sounds and loves to point them out to me as we are driving down the road.  She is a girlie girl all the way but loves to wrestle with her daddy (and Ethan when we aren't looking).  She loves to go shopping and pick out her own clothes.  Addison is an amazing child all around.  I can't wait to see what her future stores.

Paul still loves his new job, I am loving my class this year as well as the courses I'm taking while persuing my Masters in Montessori.  We are loving our new house and are having fun in making it our own.  We have so much to be thankful for.

The Cutest Kids Ever!!!

Addison and Ethan are growing up so fast and I can't believe I have slacked so much at keeping this blog updated.  Ethan is crawling everywhere now!  He started a week ago and I think he is enjoying his new freedom.  As of right now he has his top 4 teeth and his bottom 2 teeth.  He has the greatest personality and just loves being around people!  Addison continues to be the smartest kid ever!  She is now able to recognize most of her letters (no matter what order they are in) and tell you the sound it makes.  She loves reading to Ethan.  I catch her all the time holding the book out (teacher style) reading to Ethan.  It is so cute.

Much Needed Update



Ethan is almost 8 months old.  He is full of personality and loves being around people.  He weighs around 18 pounds and ranks short on the hieght scale.  He is extremely well behaved and easy going.  He loves to play in his jumpy toy (the kind you hang in a doorway).  He will jump forever!  He is on stage 2 baby food, eating baby puffs and cookies for snacks, and only drinking milk at Mrs. Pams (not sure why).  He loves Addison the most!  She can make him smile and laugh.  It is the cutest thing.  He has been sitting up on his own since 4 months and loves to snatch toys from Addison.  He has his 2 bottom middle teeth and 2 top teeth (the vampire ones) is so cute!  He loves to say "ma ma ma ma, da da da da and aga (addison)".  He loves to play in the bathtub.  He scares me when he reaches for toys because he gets close to going head first in the water.  He also loves to splash!  Ethan is the best sleeper.  He will sleep 12-14 hours every night.  We just love our little man!


Addison is now 2 1/2 years old.  I always say she is like a 5 year old in a 2 year old body.  She is just too smart for her age.  She is the most motherly, loving, 2 year old sister I have ever seen.  She can officially change Ethan's diaper from start to finish (even grabbing toys to entertain him).  She loves to sing and make up songs.  Her favorite song is God our Father (her prayer before she eats).  She also likes to sing Jesus Loves Me.  Her favorite food is Pizza, cheetos, Chick-fil-a, and hotdogs.  She has the best manners I have ever seen in a 2 year old.  She will say please and thank you without any prompting.  She is a very prissy girl.  If she gets anything on her clothes she will go to her room and change her clothes (without us even knowing).  She still loves to wear her bows and dress up.  She is now getting to the point where she now wants a say in what she is going to wear.  I could go on and on...We just love her to death!!!!

Paul and I:

I am still enjoying my job.  It keeps me on my toes and there is never a dull moment.  I have a child this year who is blind and it has been an amazing learning opportunity.  I am also getting my Masters which keeps me busy.

Paul is enjoying his new job.  I have never seen him so happy.  He gets to dress up...which I like.  Yes, Paul has to wear something other than shorts and flip flops. 

Our family has officially moved.  We sold our house and are still going through the closing process.  The closing dates has been pushed back over and over.  We are learning a hard lesson in patience.  We are excited about this new journey God has provided.  We are also thankful to Pauls parents who have played a big part in this new journey!
