Waving bye-bye before she runs away from home. She is also obviously a daughter of mine. Not many people can walk barefoot on agragate, especially with tender baby feet. She has no problems. Nate will limp his way to the mailbox while Addy runs full out across the rocks without a whimper. That also resulted in her worst injury ever. She fell on the agragate the other day and cut her head open. Not only was their blood everywhere but a goose egg the size of golf ball. We took a picture but its so gruesome and disgusting that I decided not to share.
Mimi gave us a great wheelbarrow with little gardening tools. I doubt this was what she meant the wheelbarrow to be used for but Addy loves putting all her stuffed animals in there. And seriously, who can resist that face :)
Don't you love her emo look? The hair just gets shaggier and shaggier but I'm afraid to trim it. I'm convinced that any day now she'll wake up and have lovely flowing girl locks.
One of the perks of living in such a hilly place. She'd push the school bus up to the top of the driveway and race back down it a hundred times a day if we let her. I try to get her to go from side to side so she's not hurtling down at breakneck speed towards the cars but she's an adrenaline junkie I guess. She prefers the possibility that she'll slam into a muffler at the end.
As is often the case at weddings people were hesitant to get out on the dance floor. No such qualms for Addy! She was out in the middle of an empty dance floor getting down! She also kept trying to touch the violinist's bow. Thankfully Uncle Lance was quick and averted that disaster.
I don't know why Nate always makes that sideways leering face. We're hoping they make pills for it :)
I missed the full shot but Addy kept going up to the wedding photographers and posing in front of them. They obliged every time by giggling and taking her picture. I'm sure Vanessa is going to wonder why there are 45 shots of Addy in her wedding album.
Addy and her Aunt Kristy. Interesting side note there. Kristy is my sister in law. She is also an MK, her mom and aunts and uncles grew up in Africa and went to ICA, my Alma mater. We also share the same birthday, January 26. Talk about a weird coincidence!! Nate always jokes with Lance and tells him to get his own wife and stop copying.
Addy and Papaw sharing some cheerios. Papaw was the one that taught her the trick of holding out a cheerio to share and then snatching it away right when the other person trys to grab it. It makes her laugh hysterically every time. When she gets really tickled she snorts. I'm sure she'll hate the snorting later on in life but at the moment it's the funniest thing I've ever heard.
