Ugh, I am in the middle of my second cold.  We were expecting a few ailments with this school thing, but two colds in a month is no fun.  Its like I go one week and then home one week.  Hopefully I get into a better schedule than this...I like being home but not being sick.  And this time, I gave my cold to Mom.  Dad almost got it too.  
We need to get better and quickly.  We are supposed to go to Lansing this weekend to see Grandma Carrie and Grandpa Tony.  Its a big weekend in EL.  Go Green!
Lets see, what else is going on??
I got my Halloween costume, but I wont share it just yet.  Pictures to come!!

 
 
I am enjoying both!!  I love Fall weather, its more my style.  I do love my summer time on the boat and at the lake.  But these cooler days and cold nights are the best.  Now I just need some decent weather so I can get out to a cider mill.  I miss my wagon ride.
I came down with a cold that lasted about a week, so I had to miss some school but I am back at it!  I have 6 other kids in my class and I have fun drawing, coloring, reading and singing songs.  So far so good!
I hope everyone  is doing well.  Time is flying by and I haven't had too many updates.  Sorry about that.  Its Dad's fault.
We have been pretty busy with the house.  The summer flood wasn't too fun.  I know cause I heard Dad say lots of bad words...lots.  Luckily Mom was there to keep him in check.  I think the house is just back to normal...finally.
Dad spent the weekend painting.  Mom needs an office and her own space.  Grandma Carrie was here so I had some GT while Dad painted.  Its almost done!  I cannot wait cause I am gonna share it with mom, we are going to have a Girls Only room...No boys and No Farley either!!
Well I am off.  Go Green!!  My Tigers weren't too fun to watch at the end (even more bad words from Dad) so luckily our Spartans are starting off strong.  Go White.!!
 
 
Yup.  You read it right....SCHOOL.  Thursday was my first day of school.  I am actually going to school.  I graduated from my home school and I am enrolled in Lake Orion.  Thursday was a big day for me, mom and dad.  
All in all it was a good time.  I only go for 3 hours a day but day 1 was successful.  Thanks, mom, for staying with me!!  I am not ready to be solo yet.  I don't think mom is ready either:)
I don't have much to report yet, since its only been day one, but after this week I hope to share all kinds of stuff about school, my new friends and all the new stuff I am learning.
I am sad Summer is over but its on to bigger and better for me...


Happy Birthday to Grandpa Rama, and Happy Birthday to Granny Nanny (Monday)!!!
Come home soon so we can eat cake and ice cream.  Yum


I hope everyone had a great summer.  I did!  I have some new pix and will post a summer wrap up later this week.


Dad and I are spending some D&D time this weekend so its off to the park and Home Depot.  I know...I know...but I actually like HD.  I like all the orange stuff!


 
 
Wow, despite the weather this week, I have been having an amazing summer.  I posted lots of new pictures to show everyone all the stuff I am doing.
I have a new swing set, thanks to Dad and Grandpa Rama - its awesome!!
I spent some time up north and I went tubing.  Yup, me, I went tubing. Thanks, Mom for helping and Dad for driving slow.
I love the water, swimming, boating, walks all the fun stuff that comes with warm weather.  Oh yeah, I am love tubing now.  What a great summer.
Check out my photos!

Lots to share already this summer.  I have been a busy lil' lady.  M&D are keeping me busy.  First of all, welcome to my new friend Evelyn Rose Johnson.  She was born on 7-11.  Another girl comes to the party...whoa these poor Dad's are in for a treat in a few years.
I have another new friend, Miss Sarah is my new nanny, helper, M&D break giver, play friend, etc all in one. She has been helping M&D and I like her cause she plays with me all the time.  Bike rides, swings, my jumper, toys, books, and all kinds of other fun stuff.  Miss Sarah has been great!
I have also been up north, I was there for the 4th of July.  I got to swim.  I went to the beach.  I went on boat rides.  I even went to walmart.  It was a fun vacation.  I got to see both my grandpas and both my grandmas.  It was so cool. Everyone came to visit me, even my aunt Christine.
This weekend, Dad and Grandpa built me a swing-set in the back yard.  It is so cool to have my own system right in the yard.  I don't have to go to the park and I don't have to go downstairs to jump.  I can go right outside in my own yard...thanks, grandpa Rama!!
On top of that, I am swimming once a week or so.  Mom takes me to water therapy.  So fun.
And this week, I am back to lokomot and get to walk again in that super cool machine.  My therapist is going to be so happy cause I think I made some great progress since the last session.  I cannot wait to get going again - will be sure to update and share a pic or two.  With that said, a couple new pics are up.  Me and my new piano from Grandpa Rama.  I am not too good yet but I am trying.
I have lots more to share and will get them posted this week, promise.




 
 
Been a busy little lady this last month.  Sorry for the delay in updating.  We are finally settling in to the new house, neighborhood, area, etc so I will have more time to share updates and pictures.
We moved and thanks to so many super generous and helpful people, we are in great shape in the new house.  Shout out thank yous to: Great Grandma Jan, Grandma Carrie, Grandpa Jim, Granny Rama, Grandpa Rama, Mr Curt, Ms Stef.  They all helped M&D lift, carry, move, unpack and all the other fun stuff that goes with moving.
Thanks to my cousin Heather and Great Aunt Fran.  They cleaned the house so that is was ready for me to play in!
This years Memorial Day was a little different.  We almost always go up north.  It is a time for chores and all the fun seasonal work that needs to get done.  This time however we had to miss our getaway.  This lady had to have her eye surgery "re-do" on Friday.  All went well and the Dr was very happy that we decided to fix some things that didnt heal to well from last time.  M&D said I am a rockstar.  We went in Friday morning and I was home in my own (new) bed Friday night.  I am swollen and look like someone punched me but other than that I am rocking it...well I was rocking it.  
I felt so good, M&D took me to a new park in the area.  I went swinging, I went spinning and I was flying around on Mom and this tire thingy.  It was super fun.  Then I went with M&D to lunch...we never do that.  I loved looking at the lights, the tvs, the cool stuff...
Then Sunday night came around and I ended up with a post-op cold.  Actually we are all fighting something but it got me!  I am super congested.  No fun!  Its hard to sleep.  Anyway, I will get over it, M&D are good at home doctors.  If we keep it out of my chest we will be successful.
I posted some pictures of my new playground at the park.  Next pics will be of the new house and my new room....
I missed everyone up north.  Thanks for rooting for me and my surgery.  "See" everyone soon...pun intended.  
xoxo
Addison.
 
 

Its been so nice to go outside.  I have been enjoying and taking advantage of the nice weather cause I think its about to get not so nice.
I have been a biking fool.  All my indoor basement practice has paid off.  I love pedaling around the neighborhood.  Mom and/or Dad take me almost every day.
This weekend I was lucky enough to have Grandma Carrie with me!  She took me on my bike ride and showed off all my pedaling moves...I am sad though, cause Great Grandma Jan was sick and didn't visit.  I was hoping for some super duper grandma girl time.  I hope GGJ feels better soon and I want to thank Grandma Carrie for playing with me and watching me while M&D got all their stuff done.  She was also a super packing helper.  Dad said it was a huge help.   I hung out with Dad and Grandma as they packed up the whole kitchen!!  
Speaking of Grandmas.  Granny Nanny Rama is back...again!  I cant wait to see her.  But first I have to be patient...she is going to visit my new cousin Abigail and help out around there this week.  They need the help more now, so I will be patient for my Granny Nanny time.  Welcome home, Granny and Great Aunt Frannie!!  

And Welcome home, Grandpa Gene.  I got to see him this week.  He was tan and getting skinny.  He was gone for 32 days...wow!  I missed him.
OK, its late, the weekend is over and this lady needs to get some sleep for a busy busy week.

XOXO
Addison

 
 
Thank you everyone for all the birthday wishes and the cards and the texts and the emails.  Yes, I even get texts!!
Thanks to Uncle Matt and Aunt Michelle (+1) and my cousin Emily who came over to watch the Spartans lose (boo) and to celebrate with me.  They brought me the most awesome balloons.  I play with them every day!  
Thanks to Granny Nanny who has been home for a few days awaiting the "newer" one.  Since the new addition isn't too motivated to join this family, I am getting spoiled with Granny time.  So fun!!  Thanks for the presents too!  I love all my new clothes and my new toys.
I am super lucky to have to such an amazing family, friendship circle, supporters...thanks to everyone!
Oh yeah, Go Tigers.  Since my spartans are done with basketball, this little lady is on to baseball.  And so far, my lucky shirt is 1-0.  Dad bought me a cool new Tiger shirt for my Bday.  I will get some pics loaded up later.

What a weekend of basketball! Dad made me watch a lot of TV this weekend.  I like the squeeky shoes and all the colors.  I like the crowd noises and the cheering. And I really like it when MSU wins.  Even though this little lady was in bed....
Check out my Granny and Grandpa.  They are supporting the Green, on a beach in Florida.  Look at my "getting skinny" grandpa.  Hooorayyy!  Keep it up, Poppa!
I have a super busy week so I have to keep it short.  Just wanted to say hello and go green.  Oh yeah, and please think Spring.  I want to go outside!!
Go Green and Go Blue.  Dad said we can root for them...for now!
