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!!!
