I have always loved the water, but since my accident, I love it even more. I have more freedom of movement in water than I do in my chair. You wouldn't really know I was paralyzed if you saw me in the water, because I have "floating legs," and my legs naturally follow my body when I swim. It's great exercise as well, and Addison thought being with Momma in the "big pool" was much more fun then being in the kiddie pool.
I found a life vest/floatie thingy at Walmart, and after some intense persuasion, we got her to wear it. Now she loves it because wearing her lady bug = swimming.

Russ' cousin is getting married in a few weeks, and I have been helping her with the planning. Her colors are gray and yellow, which inspired one of our downstairs bedrooms- the bunk bed room. Since there will be six twins altogether in the bunks, I wanted to make six different pillows- one for each bed. I gathered up six out-dated throw pillows from storage, went to a few fabric places, and ta-da! Six custom throw pillows! We are also using some of them in the wedding for this idea:

Can't end a post without a few more cute pics of Ms. Addison...

My family comes in this weekend from Indy/NYC, so I should have some fun pictures to post soon of all of our East meets West adventures. Fun times ahead!
