Addy and Kate, from Little Lambs
Saturday, Grandma, Grandad, and aunts Ally and Maddi came to visit. Addy got to show them all of her fun toys and her crawling skills. Then we had potato soup, played some games and relaxed.
Sunday, we went to church and then to downtown Main Street. We walked around in the beautiful, but chilly, weather. Then they had to leave, so we went home and relaxed for the rest of the night.
Yesterday was laundry day. We did get to go for a walk though, since it was sunny and only a little chilly again. If it gets to 50 degrees, we go outside :) And we have our first sprouts from our indoor garden-tomatoes and sweet peas. Hopefully I can keep them healthy :)
Today we went to Sam's Club and picked up 13 bags of lettuce for the Ash Wednesday supper at church tomorrow-our refrigerator is very full :) Then we went shopping for birthday party decorations at Hobby Lobby. They had the best selection at the best prices :) And we made friends with a very nice guy who said Addy was too pretty to be a boy, and he was jealous of her hair ;) Addy also made friends with a baby who looked to be about her age in the checkout line. Very cute :) She definitely does not like rain in her face though-we found that out when leaving. Another thing that really makes her mad is if I take MY cell phone away from her while she's playing with it...
Toby, channeling Lady and the Tramp, with a Twizzler
The past few days, we've been working on lots of new things. Addy successfully drank out of a cup all by herself today. There was some spillage, but she was able to bring the cup to her lips, drink, bring it back down, then take another drink, all without me holding it-a big step. She was having trouble before today with not tipping the cup herself.
Today, I was talking to Addy and playing with her, and she made a cute face, so I kissed her and told her I loved her. She immediately shook her head no and gave me a sly grin. So I told her, fine, Toby loved me, and she kept shaking her head. It made me so sad :( Ok, not really-it was really funny :)
She also is getting very good at standing and balancing. I could tell she was working on it, because she'd push off of me to regain her balance and then keep trying to stand. We also discovered today, that if I put her on the floor with no toys, she can crawl across the entire room, to find toys such as Toby's toy, firewood or candles to play with :)
She is also enjoying baths more and can keep herself entertained, but when I ask if she wants to get out, she puts her hands up right away. I'm sure that won't last long. And I get asked almost every day if she is really that happy all the time, and I say yes, she sure is :)
