Happy birthday, sweet girl!

Two years ago our sweet Addison Grace entered the world and we have never been the same! We celebrated last weekend with some friends when we were in Indy and we'll continue celebrating this weekend. I'll catch up on posts soon.

Truly parenthood gets better and better everyday (even during trying times and tantrums)! We love you, Addie G! We thank God for bringing you into our lives!

Where is Addie?

Science Center Saturday

A couple of weeks ago we went to the Louisville Science Center with Jenny and Layton. We had a great time in the KidZone and enjoyed a family day on a Saturday. Enjoy some pics!

Driving the bus

Where's Layton?

They were drenched after waterplay!

Of course my husband was checking the whole water system out and telling me that he could make this at home. "It would be easy and something Addie could play with outside." For those of you that know Jeremy know that he often says, "I can just make that!" instead of doing the easier thing and just buying the item. There are advantages and disadvantages to having a very talented and handy husband. :)

Can you tell how wet she was? The raincoat didn't help too much.

Playing in the airplane cockpit. Addie picked up the phone and said "Hi...Elmo...Bye". Guess Elmo was helping to land the plane. Ha!

Listening to the heartbeat of a bird x-ray???

I think she likes the polar bear! :)

Random pics

Our friend Jason came over a few weeks ago. He just so happened to have his awesome DSR camera on him so I played with it while Jeremy and Jason played in the garage. The lighting wasn't the best in our house, but it was still fun to play with.

These are pictures right after bath time. You can see how curly Addie's hair is when it is wet. Anytime after she sleeps she has "Sealy Hair" (someone said that is what they called their son's curly hair)! :) It is hard to keep it not looking like a frizzy mess, but I love our curly-haired girl!

Enjoy! Have a great weekend!

Addie LOVES to color! I think this picture is so sweet.

Evidence of growing up

It's hard to believe our little girl will be TWO at the end of the month. We keep saying "She's so big!" Here is the evidence of our little one becoming a two-year-old...

1.) She looks so big compared to babies.

A couple of weekends ago we got together with Laura, Cory and their little boy, Dane and Liz and her little girl, Emma ("baby Emma" as Addie says). Addie looks soooo big compared to the other two in this picture.

2.) Even more independence.

We went to Chick-fil-a for dinner before church one night and Addie played on the jungle gym all by herself. No help needed going upstairs, climbing over stuff and going down the big tunnel slide. And she even waited her turn.

3.) Pigtails!

Yep, her hair is long enough for pigtails. Here she is posing in them. She keeps them in for a long time, too. It helps tame the rat's nest in the back of her head sometimes aka teased curls (as I guess I should call them). I gotta say, she looks so stinkin' cute in them!

4.) Learning to share and playdates.

Emma came over for an impromptu play date. It is apparent that Addie loves to interact with her friends (instead of playing side by side) and is learning to share. Both of the girls wanted to be in the car together. They both LOVE each other and play together at daycare all the time.

5.) Talking up a storm and mimicking us

Lately Addie has been putting blankets, towels, Jeremy's boxers, etc. (weird, I know) over Sadie and patting her saying "Night, night, Sadie...Sadie's sleepy...Shhh...etc." She is really starting to talk in sentences. "I want more milk, please, Daddy" is an example. She is saying words all the time that we have never heard her say before.

Stop growing up, little girl!!!
