Well Matt and I are expecting another baby!! We do realize our children will be 13 months apart but we are still excited!! It will be a challenge but I think we are up for it! I have not seen my Dr. yet so I don't have an official due date but I think it will be end of February/ beginning of March. I included some pictures from the last month. Mostly they are from our Tolman Family Reunion which was held last week in Southern Oregon. We camped all week and Addison did really well. She loved being outside so much and had a great time with all her cousins. Matt was not able to go and he missed us so much! Addison smiled really big for her daddy yesterday when we got home. She missed him too!!

Addison and I hiking. Couldn't figure out how to turn this picture?!?
Hanging out in her stroller

My grandma and grandpa Tolman, my dad, Addison and myself. Four generations

Aunt Angie took Addison swimming. She LOVED the water. She kicked her legs and tried to get it the whole time. As you can see we could not get her to take her eyes of the water long enough to look at the camera.

This was the day after 4th of July. I had got Addison ready for church in a red white and blue dress and then Matt came downstairs with his flag tie on. Well I just had to go change so we could all match. We got lots of compiments on this!! :)

Some of the Tolman grandchildren. Alyssa, Brenden, Tanner, Karsyn, Blake, Chase, Tyler, Jaxson, April, Addison, and Brady.

We went for a hike and I borrowed this carrier from Amy and Travis. Addison LOVED it. She loved being able to see everything and it was much nicer than carrying her. Only problem was she had full access to my hair which she took advantage of. I think I lost half my hair on that hike! She has been grabbing hair all the time. This morning she grabbed her dad's armpit hair. Needless to say he was in a little bit of pain! HA HA!!

Fourth of July

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July! We sure did! We spent the day at my mom and dad's in Biggs. We started out at the parade. Addison wasn't real interested until the sirens and then she paid close attention trying to figure out what the noise was. Then we hung out at my parents until we went to my brother in law Travis' sisters house for finger foods and swimming. We had a great time and there was lots of yummy food. We ended back up at my parents for fireworks and s'mores. It was a great day!
Addison has been sitting up by herself more and more lately. She does pretty good you just have to keep an eye on her. She is growing up so fast. This week she will be 5 months old. I can't believe it! She is so fun!

She is wearing the bow that my friend made for her. I could not find a red or blue bow to save my life. Only pink and purple everywhere. It turned out so cute and she looked adorable!

Addison LOVES the water. The pool was perfect temperature for her and she smiled and kicked her legs it was so fun! We stayed in the water for a long time.

We stayed and watched the fireworks down the street from my parents and Addison slept through the whole thing.. maybe next year she will enjoy them! All in all we had a great 4th of July! And we are very grateful for our freedom in this country and the people who have helped and still help us to get that freedom! Libby took a family picture of us so we will have to post that after she e-mails it to us!
