Not Always An Angel!

It seems like everyone that knows Addie thinks she's really well-behaved, even our babysitters (thanks Mollie and Katie!), but lately, Addie has had her moments:

So last week we visited our awesome friends Carrie and Christian and their newborn son Pete. While visiting with them, Addie showed us a glimpse of what the "terrible two's" could hold in store for us.

Addie was sure that Mommy would let her hold little Pete:

"What?! I can't hold the real newborn baby?!"

"then i'll just sit here and cry while daddy takes pictures"

"oh wait, pictures of me? i love pictures of me!"

"everyone knows i'm a pro when it comes to smiling"

And that solved the problem! Addie played nice after having her picture taken.

New Wheels

Watch out world, Addie got her first new car! She has one like this at daycare & loves it so much that she drives out to meet Daddy at his car when he picks her up! Now she has some wheels at home too!

glasses update

First day with glasses at 9 months old

Now 18 months old! (a little crooked...oops)

We've come a long way! Addie got glasses when she was 9 months old and the eye doctor told us at that time not to expect her to grow out of them since her prescription was so strong. She wore them really well up until about 12 months, then it got less and less as she'd pull them off all the time! We started wondering if she really needed them as she's far-sighted (has trouble seeing really close things) but she'd pick up even the smallest speck on her tray.

Well we took her in this week for a 6 month check up and...good news! Her eyes are indeed getting better! They have completely straightened out (they had been turning in a little at first) and her prescription has been cut in half! The eye doctor thinks that's why she's taking the glasses off so much-they are too strong now. And they even said it now looks like she just might indeed grow out of them...yay! But even if she doesn't, her eyes are growing stronger. We are so glad we caught this early on and may have prevented her a lifetime of vision problems...praise God!

Summertime fun!

It's been HOT here, so nothing like some water to cool off in. Addie just loves her pool and water table and yesterday we took her to her first big pool at the rec center. We had a blast!

4th of July!

We had a BBQ at our house with some friends for the 4th. It was HOT, so the kiddos enjoyed the water table.

And Addie brought Daddy some beer!
