these days at the hoskinson house

Along with the beginning of fall, has come a full schedule for us. We have been trying to make the most of our days and make the most of the time we all have home together as a family. Addelyn is growing and changing before our eyes and every day we say how much more she looks like a little girl than a baby. The last few weeks, we have fought off some sickness- I had the flu first and then Addelyn got sick with pinkeye and some form of cold/flu stuff. Poor baby. It was hard to see her sick. Although it was the only time EVER that she just wanted to sit still on our laps and be held (I liked that part- to actually cuddle with my baby!) Hopefully Mark stays healthy & that is the last of our sickness for the year. No fun. Otherwise, we are just busy keeping our eye out on the little girl, as she is into everything and moving quickly around the house.

Poor sick baby, those darn snot bubbles came out every time she took a bite! :)

We finger painted with ketchup and mustard the other night- believe it or not, she only put her finger in her mouth once or twice- she wasn't interested in eating it...just in playing!

Addelyn really isn't eating with her spoon by herself yet but is doing more and more finger foods so really likes to have control while she is eating. The other night I let her have the spoon and bowl when she was done and she really enjoyed that!

Even with the snot bubbles, she is beautiful! Her eyes are amazing in that picture. Boaz wants to say hi... m v jj ssjh dkj jnhnuhuy (I think that meant- 'hi, addelyn!')

Now that I have joined the blog world, I look more often to see the progress of your family. Addelyn is precious. It's obvious that you are well adjusted to motherhood and doing a great job. It seems not so long ago that you were one of the college kids in my living room watching reality TV! Time flies!
Blessings to you and your family.
