This little lady has absolutely been stealing our hearts lately.
One moment, she's driving us nuts with her endless amount of chatter and procrastination at bed time but then in an instant she's said something ridiculously sweet or silly and we're wrapped around her finger.
I wish that I had been doing a better job of writing down all she's been saying because this volume of Addyisms is a little slim compared to all the cute and adorable things she been saying and doing.
The other day, she was having coffee with her Dad in the playroom and they had a conservation that went something like this:
Hello, how are you?
Good, my husband is at home with the kids
Oh, what's your husband's name?
Oh and what does he do?
He's a hard worker
But what kind of work does he do?
He buys money for us
There was also another conversation from the playroom that I over heard recently that warmed both Matt and my hearts. Matt was playing with one of her dolls and had taken on the roll of "Ashlyn," complete with a silly high pitched girl's voice and Addy was inviting Ashlyn to church.
So what do we do at church?
We learn about Jesus
Oh, tell me about Jesus
Well, he saves our souls.
One of my favorite things about Addy lately was how sweet and thankful she was on Christmas. I made her a baby carrier and a few things for her baby. She knew exactly what the carrier was when she opened it up and proceeded to tell us how much she had wanted one. "Thank you! Thank you!." After we tucked her in on Christmas night, she came out of her room to go to the bathroom, on her way back to bed, we heard her say down the hall: "Thank you for the baby stuff." It was the sweetest thing and we were so thankful for her happy heart.
Addy has never been that into coloring or drawing (she prefers to line up crayons or markers and then pretend that they are people), but lately she has gotten into drawing smiley faces and snowmen. She can also write the letter "A" when she is in the mood.
She loves to play Mouse Trap and Candy Land and has declared red to be her new favorite color. No more orange.
In a few months she will be four years old but she "can't wait" until she's five so she can go to school. She's also pretty anxious to be married and to be pregnant and have babies, which is sometimes just a little too much for this momma to handle.
Dear Addy Grace, please stop growing up so quickly.
