Pulling up to "Stand"

Short post today. I wanted to write so much more, but am still not back to 100%.

I wasn't going to post at all- but I simply had to share.

One year ago today Addison was fighting to live. Today, Addison did this:

(Note: We had been practicing this for a while today and she had already done it probably five times by the time I realized I should be recording yeah, she got a bit whiny, but can't really blame her. She was working really hard. Also, I realize she isn't standing totally straight and is holding herself a lot by her arms, but this is progress, so I am sharing a snack of goldfish crackers with her)

Oh my goodness, just look how strong she is! I don't think I could be more proud of her. (-: I am loving having a one year old...also, Jenny, thanks for the shoe box idea!

Hope you are having a wonderful Monday. Also, as a Wisconsin native, I know I should care that the Packers won yesterday, but honestly....yeah, don't care. Sorry, Wisconsin friends. Congrats to you all. (-:


  1. Yay!!! That is awesome standing! She knows just what to do and is fast! I love the shoe box...Jenny taught us all a great trick! :) Way to go Addison!
