Baby love, Meeting Keetha and off I go!!!

I am totally in love with this little 3 month baby girl!
Last week little Addison's eyes were dark blue and now their turning brown!
It kind of shocked me because I  thought they were going to be blue like her Mommy's.
But instead their going to be brown like her Daddy's.

My sister Susie loaned us this fun jumper.  Addison is already jumping with the aid of a pillow!
Babies have it made nowadays, so many fun things for them to do.
She is also babbling, laughing out loud and last weekend she rolled over!
Yah Addison!

Tomorrow I am leaving this......
(I've been totally into making ice luminaries for some reason)

And heading to this!

I think my body may go into shock!
It's been so cold here and 65-70 is going to feel so good!

I will visit with my son and dil.

And some lovely bloggy friends!
Speaking of which, last Friday evening my hubby Dan and I met up with Keetha and her hubby!
What a great evening we had!

And here's the lovely couple!  Keetha ( The Eclectic Company) and I met through blogging and now she only lives a hop, skip and jump away from me!  Ok, well more like 50 miles but still a lot closer than her previous home in
Well my friends, please don't forget me!
I will be back to visit with you all soon.

    At least get some sun & take some pics with your tan : )

  11. Awww! She is precious! Yes - Babies have so many new toys/equipment now days compared to what we had when we raised their Mothers. Looking forward to hearing all about your trip to AZ.

  12. The baby jumper looks like a space shuttle. Wow.
    I'll bet Keetha is just as awesome in person as she is on her blog. Now I can go to her blog and say the same thing about you because I'll bet it is true.


    Your little girl is a doll baby.

    Love and celebrate,

  17. Cindy - Have a wonderful time at your family's home...and please take some of this cold weather with your....or, better yet...bring some of their warmth back here.

    Is that a berm home, by the way,or is that just an optical illusion and it is built close to the hill behind it? Looks like Arizona to me!

  18. Hi Cindy! Oh, that little Addison is adorable and I agree - our babies have it made. Look at that jumper will all the bells and whistles!! :)
    Have fun as you thaw out!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  19. Addison is such a cutie and she is growing so fast. Have a safe adnd fun trip, Cindy. You are so lucky, you get to meet so many blogging friends. I am going to see Vanna (delusions of grandeur) too very soon!...Christine

  20. That sweet baby looks just like her beautiful mother! She has such a funny expression on her face. I immediately thought of a newscaster (for some odd reason) about to deliver some somber news! Don't know why. You be safe and have fun now!

  21. Cindy, these photos of Addison make me want another grandbaby (don't tell my children I said that - I really don't want them to have more children, but I'd love to pick up little Addison and hold her, and giggle with her. she is an absolute doll). Love your ice luminaries. I hope you have a wonderful trip to AZ. I know the people there are still in shock over the recent tragedy. I've been saying prayers for all of them. laurie

  22. I love the first photo, Addison looks as if she's having a deep conversation with the photographer, what a sweetie.
    Have a safe trip.

  23. HI Cindy, the baby is just gorgeous I hope your trip is wonderful sounds like it should be, since you will be seeing your son and DIL and some great blogging friends! enjoy! Hugs

  24. I just love hearing about all your gatherings with blogging friends, especially since I "know" some of them.

    Have a great trip and don't forget the sun screen, lol.

    Here in Florida we are the only state without snow right now, so you may want to think about that in the future…hint, hint.


  25. Cindy she is just precious! Enjoy! ;)

  26. Having just gotten back from the west--I'm jealous. lol You will have so much fun! I just saw Ceekay. Wish it could have happened that we could have met each other.
    Enjoy the weather. We came home to a real shock with 9" of snow. Rare for SC.
    Enjoy your family and all the blogging friends.

  27. Addison is such a cutie! Give that baby girl a big hug from me!!

    Susan and Bentley

    It looks like you had a great time with your bloggy friends. :) I saw the photo (and you were in them) on another blog. I think it was Marty's.
