6 months and counting

It is hard to believe that Addy was born 6 months ago. Could time really be going this fast? It seems like we just got back from the hospital and she still seems so small... It is true! Yesterday was Addy's 6 month mark. Amber came to me a couple of days ago and said she wanted to make a cake with Logan and throw a little party for our baby girl. I have never been one to turn down a party, especially when cake is envolved:)
So there you have it! Kendra, one of Amber's good friends from Utah gave her the idea to make a 'half' cake. Amber's mom provided the plate, when she was growing up, her mom would make the birthday kid's favorite meal and serve it on this plate, so that is a fun tradition we get to carry on. Logan's favorite kind of cake is any cake that has 'sprinkles' in the frosting, and since Addy had never had cake before, we let him choose.
Logan had to try it out just in case it was poisoned...
Here is pretty mommy with the half-birthday girl.
After dis-robing, We sat Addy in front of the cake and let her go to town on the cake. At first she just mushed it in her hands and then she lunged at it getting some in her mouth. I think she liked it since she kept going back for more.
Logan had fun watching and sneaking an occasional taste.

What a mess, by the time she was done playing, the table was covered in frosting and so was Addy.
Look at those toes, what a mess!
Next we threw both the rugrats in the tub to clean them up for stories and bed. I think Addy is going to be another water-baby, just like her brother. She certainly loves bath time and the occasional shower.
After cleaning up, it was cozy time, I wish I still had a pair of pj's like those:)
