Happy 2 1/2 Addie!!!

Wow!!  I realize now how much a difference 6 months can make!  Addie has really grown up quite a bit since her 2nd birthday.  Her speech and vocabulary are AMAZING and she has the best imagination ever!  She has started to DIRECT play activities.  For example " Okay, Mommy - you be the prince.  I am the beautiful princess and am asleep.  So you have to come and kiss me on my eye".  She loves to make up her own songs by combining about 2-3 of her favorite songs and she will make up songs about absolutely ANYTHING - putting on socks, eating blueberries, etc.  She love to dance around and wear princess dresses.  She has her own little expressions and gestures - love when she puts her hand on her hips :)  Wonder where she got that from ???!!!!!  She is destined to be a very outgoing girl - possibly on the stage??????  Her memory still blows me away - she can remember every detail about an event that took place well over 6 months ago!  - what she was wearing, what she ate, who was there, etc.  She is also very loving - except for those moments when her terrible 2s kick in to high gear!!!!  She has a big heart and is very in tune to people's emotions.  She has all her teeth now and has stopped her crazy growth spurts.  She loves her two friends and can't wait to have playdates with them.  She still asks for a bottle all the time and Mommy gives in once in awhile :)  She has to have "little bit of show", a book, and singing before bedtime.  What a love the best is that she still has a little bit of "baby" left.  Her cherub cheeks, her protruding tummy, her pudgy toes and hands, and the rolls right below her diaper.  Her birthmark on her bottom is fading as is the one near her nose.  I am sure that at her 3rd birthday - these things might be gone :(  So I will give them all kisses and savor the last bit of "baby-ness".  I just love everything about her - she's my girl.
