I know, it has been a long time.

   Life goes by so quickly sometimes. This is especially true when you move to two different cities in one year due to promotions for Mark. In the last 13 months, we have lived in Cedar City, Orem, and now Ogden, Utah. And no, Mark isn't part of the military. He still works for Convergys. And he loves his new position as Operations Manager, which is good, he is supposed to do it for around 5 years until he can get his next promotion.
   Addison is growing like a weed. She may only be average for height and really really skinny for her age, but she is pretty scrappy for her age. She started rolling at 3 weeks, crawling at 6 months after months of rolling everywhere, and then walking at 11 months. Now? At 19 months she is a runner and occasional climber. She also has a mouth full of teeth. We are at 12 in and 4 eye teeth pushing through. It is fun to watch her make connections to what you are saying and asking her to do. She is also interested in using the big girl potty, so we are trying to get her trained, half the time. But I am probably going to get on that full boar now that we are home for the fall.
   This summer has had tons of adventures. Besides moving to Ogden, we went home for a wedding and again to help Mark's mom recover from knee replacement. Addison learned a lot in the two weeks we lived with the Gabica's, like how to turn on solar lights, climb stairs like a big girl, and how to get whatever she wants from any of the grandparents. I am STILL trying to straighten her out! 
   Mark and I have also started running. I am training for a half marathon in Las Vegas this December. Hopefully my health problems are fixed so I can get back into the swing of things. It has been really fun sharing in the training with Mark. It is so nice to have an active hobby together.
   I can't think of anything else we have done in the last year or so. So without further ado, here are the pictures I am sure you are all dying to see...
