About Me

My photo
Our family consists of Paul/Daddy. He loves his little girls, wife and family more than anything in the world. Velvet (aka MaMa Velvet or Mommy). I'm a photographer and very happy stay at home Mom who can't get enough time with my little ones! Lily (aka Monster or Princess). She's our 12 year old smart, talkative, beautiful young woman who is impressing us everyday! Addison (aka Doo or Addi). She's 9, artistic, sensitive, lovely young lady who has a quick sense of humor! Scarlett or Bo for short! She's 7, sassy, outgoing, cute as a button and has a passion for a few very select food groups! Finally we have our littlest princess, who has blessed us with her presence until it's time to go home. She's 1 and the happiest little baby around! She loves clapping, snuggling, shaking her head no, and laughing at her sisters! She's incredibly smart and uses sign language to communicate most of her needs until she learns to use her big girl words. We are loving on her with every ounce of our being!

Addison and Milestones

Miss Addi-Bo-Baddi posing for her yearly photo!
Last years portrait was taken at our old apartment and this years portrait was taken in the dining room of our new home!
So many things have changed for our family this year and the changes in Addison have been many as well!
She's a rambunctious, sweet, demanding, gentle hearted, sharing, obstinate 4 year old.
She is VERY excited about starting preschool this fall as well as getting to play soccer.
She loves to quote Wreck It Ralph with her big sister.
She loves her new big girl room, but still sneaks into Mommy and Daddy's room for some sweet snuggles every night.
Her fear of pools and sprinklers has vanished in place of fins and flippers! She is a true water baby!
She has a wicked sweet tooth and a never ending stomach. The girl is hungry for days.
She still loves dresses and playing dress up (as witnessed above!) and will throw a massive fit if I come anywhere near her with jeans.
She is still Daddy's little Addi-Doo. So much so that Miss Scarlett refers to her as 'Doo'.
If she doesn't know how to respond to a question she promptly opens her mouth and sticks out her tongue. She may even wag it at you before promptly exiting the room.
She loves to tell Mommy stories in the van.
She LOVES the dentist.
She HATES the 'Sal-a-vation army' and Home Depot. Heck, lets lump Lowes in this category also.
She is sweet and sour all wrapped up in a beautiful little lady I get to call mine!
Love you my sweet Addison!
