One of Addison's favorite Television shows is Yo Gabba Gabba...she always likes to dance when the intro comes on!

Stop the presses. Montgomery now has a Gymboree! We took Addison this morning to her first session and she had so much fun. Up until Jill signed us up for our trial session, I thought Gymboree was just a kids clothing line. Not so fast my friend! Gymboree is basically an indoor playground for toddlers and preschoolers where your kid can participate in the teacher facilitated singing and interactive play sessions or opt for freeplay. There are balls all over this place, one of an 18 month old's favorite objects, and activties range from parachute fun to bubble blowing and Gymbo the clown. Everything is padded and there are three stationary playsets around the floor, from roller ramps with slides to a rolling bridge. Addison did a lot of exploring on her own during this first session, and knowing how much she loves to sing and dance, I bet she'll be more involved with group activities next time.

Valentines Day

We had a great Valentines Day together as a family on Saturday. Addison and Daddy went out to get breakfast. Addison brought back a beautiful rose for Me!!! It was great waking up to Addison carrying in a rose.

We got Addison a Talking Tea Set. She loved it!

That night we went over to Uncle Joey's and Aunt Dee's House for dinner and Addison had a great time with her cousins!

Play date with Hudson

So I have been very bad about blogging, I am trying to catch up!

We had our first real "play date" last Wednesday the 18th of February...I took the day off from work to take Addison to the doctor to recheck her ears and also to hang out with Tisha and Hudson.

Since the weather was not that nice out we decided to try out the Art Museum and go to there ArtWorks exhibit that is for children. Look at the pictures below...isn't it the coolest place, and oh yeah it is free!!!

Consignment Sales

Fall and Spring are my favorite times of the year....and it just so happens that is the 2 times a year that Consingment sales are going on in Montgomery...So far I have been to 2 of the 6 sales and I am actually consigning for the first time in one of them.

First, lets back up...I remember when I was first pregnant and people told me about these sales and how great they were but I was secretly thinking why would you buy "Used" things for your children. Well I have now been a parent for 17 months and 8 days and I think that consignment sales are the greatest!

Yesterday was half price day at one of my favorite of the consigment sales...Addison lately has been saying "me mo" which we found out is Elmo...we don't know where she first started liking Elmo or even knowing who he was... So I was looking around at all the stuff and came across several items that featured Elmo...I also picked out a few other discounted items such as a Belle dress up costume, 2 dresses (each for $1), a Dora phone, Dora book, Princess shoes, travel play house ALL For $14! You can't beat that! Yay for Consignment Sales!!

Some Princess Boots AJ bought for her ...I was totally agaisnt them, but you see who wins :)
