Our New Addition

Adair Caroline Anderson was born at 11:33am on 6-8-12! Your little sister has arrived!

We can’t wait for you to meet her…but the hospital doesn’t allow visitors between 2 and 4pm, so you’ll have to wait just a little longer.

Mommy and Daddy love you, Coen Bud and we know you’re going to be the best big brother ever! ImageImage


Your Crazy (In a Good Way) Momma!

Coen and…soon, Addy…yo momma is crazy! (In a good way). This woman is such a hard worker that she’s literally been returning and making work-related phone calls from the comfort of her hospital bed.

(Front office assistant on other end of phone): “Sara, where are you?” “Uh…giving birth,” your momma said. Now, who would do that? Your momma, I tell ya! That’s who! 

Just shows you what a tremendous work ethic your momma has. She’s given birth to one (soon, two) of you and been earning the financial means to keep our family afloat the last 3 years. She’s my hero, and she’ll be yours too!

I guess after Coen’s delivery 3 and a half years ago, Addy’s arrival will be a comparative piece of cake. But let’s not jinx ourselves, she has yet to be allowed to “push”! 

Sara might kill me if I tried taking a picture of her in the middle of these contractions, but I’m really tempted…just to remind her of what she won’t remember later! Hence, the return to the blog!


Where Your Sister is Delivered

Where Your Sister is Delivered

Here is a map where your baby sister is being born! The hospital is called CMC Pineville. The room is nice, but they need an upgrade on the “daddy bed” mattress.

Your Sister is on Her Way!


Just wanted to let you know that your baby sister, Addy is on the way into the World! Your momma and I got to the hospital last night while you were sleeping because Sara was having contractions every 4-5 minutes for 2 hours.

Our only disappointment is that you woke up Gran-ma-MA Saundra at 4:30am! You must have known that something was up, that your baby sister was coming into the World! No, wait…you wake up that early just about every day now to come into daddy’s bed! You need to stop getting up so early!!

Your momma is still a few hours away from being able to give birth to your baby sister, Addy but we want you to be nice to Gran-ma-MA while we’re at the hospital. You’ll meet your new baby sister later today!

Adding Addy


So, you might have noticed it’s been a while since our last post. There’s no easy way to put a pretty little bow on the last two years. Let me try to sum it up for you. Your daddy finally landed a job selling advertising with a local news organization after spending most of the last 2 years at home with you!

And here is a part you already know: we are adding a baby girl to our little family! Maybe you can put a bow on your little sister’s head? Hopefully that won’t be as difficult as it was to find a job in this economy!

Your little sister’s name is going to be Adair, but we have decided to call her “Addy”. Adair is your Grandma Nancy’s maiden name. Your Uncle T-Daddy (Trey) has that as his middle name, but he never uses it, so we figure your little sister probably won’t either though she will have the option! Mommy and daddy are into nicknames, we like to call you, “Coen-Bud”. Hopefully your sister enjoys nicknames as much as we do! 

Addy is due June 12th, 2012 so it’s time to fire up the blog again and keep everyone updated on her arrival.

We know you’re going to be the BEST big brother ever! Especially since there aren’t many Anderson girls over the last few decades! Get ready, Coen-Bud…you’re World is about to change for ever!  


Coen the Dog Terrorist


You seem to be getting good at this walking thing.  So good that now you’re chasing Sully around, which he doesn’t much care for.  Check the video.

Standing to Walk


Mark this day down in your calendar, April 3, 2010. While the first picture in this sequence may look like you are “mooning” the camera, it’s actually a historic moment and why I’ve asked you to write it down.

Coen Gets to Standing on His Own

Coen Gets to Walk on His Own

Though the picture is of you sticking your booty in the air, it’s for the purpose of standing to walk. This is a task, which to this point, you had yet to complete and now on this date, you were successful not once, not twice but three times!

We are so very proud of you! With all the hurdles you’ve had to overcome, we’re proud of you for getting to this point on your own.
