Addison- 18 months old

In the blink of an eye, this sweet girl has gone from a wiggly, precious newborn to a happy, energetic, entertaining toddler. Addison is so comical and quite strong willed most of the time, too. She is my sunshine. I love hearing her call for me or yell "MAMA!" when I walk into a room. That makes my heart smile.

There are so many things I want to remember about you, my Addison, but I will never be able to list them all. But here are a few things I never want to forget: You-

  • weigh 21 lbs. 7 oz.

  • are 31 1/4 inches tall

  • wear size 4 diapers

  • wear size 4 shoes

  • wear size 12-18 month clothes

  • have started saying all kinds of words. You love to tell Boots the dog to "sit-sit", You say "scat cat" when someone sneezes, shoes, clothes, Boots, Sadie, Mama, Dada, Sis, Ga (grammy), Nanny, Pawpaw, cat, dog, eat-eat, juice, cookie, and many more! I can't belive how much your language has developed in just a couple of weeks.

  • love playing in the sandbox and with the play kitchen

  • learned to climb the ladder on our swingset and go down the slide (assited)

  • get excited when you see "Elmo"

  • try to put on everyone's shoes

  • want to give everyone a hug

  • love to "read" books

  • will start to dance anytime you hear music

  • love to walk around with your microphone and "sing"

  • love to eat fruit- especially bananas

  • try to color like your big sister. You even ask to "colllllor"

  • inform us when you want to "pway"

  • are going throug terrible seperation anxiety. You are NOT happy about being left at preschool

  • find it facinating to take your pants and diaper off

  • are SO stubborn and strong-willed

  • are a little clown

Little Bit,

Thank you for the past 18 months! They have flown by and I'm not even sure that I can close my eyes and remember you as a "baby". But you are taking off full speed ahead into this toddler territory and are smiling and laughing your way through each day. I love you, dear one. I love that you remind me to laugh and play and pause long enough to hold and snuggle you. Because I know so well that those moments are fleeting. I love you, Little Bit! You are my sunshine!
