Let me just start by saying-anything that can make a 2 1/2 year old take a nap for 4 hours is well worth the money! ha Love ya Addison-but Mommy soooo needed that time to clean. Saturday morning we woke up and headed downtown to the FedEx Forum to watch Elmo Live-Superheroes. It was stinkin adorable & Addison was amazed. This weekend was so nice and we got tons of yard work and cleaning done. I am about ready to open the pool!! Wonder if my husband will let me get a pool boy?? Bahaha doubt it!
I am so glad that we produced a Super Funny Kid! While watching TV at Booya's last night-the Amazing Race was on. The contestants had to carry around a garden gnome I guess for travelocity.com. Addison was watching and all of the sudden she said look Mommy they have Baby Santa's!! Baha she thought the Gnomes were baby santas-Oh I about fell out of the chair! Thank goodness she has my sense of humor~!
This morning around 6a.m. Addison was saying "Mommmmmmmyyyyyyyy Mommmmmmyyyyyyyyy" (when your really tired this is exactly what it sounds like). Bryan said 'I have to go put the clothes in the dryer anyways-I will check on her when I come back', therefore I fell back asleep. Then my alarm went off and I layed there for a min then turned to look at Bryan and Addison was there in bed looking at me! ha I didn't even know she had gotten in the bed. She was so still and quiet (unlike how she is normally). Then she grinned and gave me the biggest hug around my neck. Sweet sweet girl with all that love-it made my morning.
I LUVVVVVV SPRING Time weather~! Just makes my heart glow. It reminds me of my Grandfather and the beautiful place that he had on top of the hill in Jackson, TN. He had flowers and the greenest grass and these beautiful yellow bushes on the right side of the driveway that we took pictures in front of every Easter. It was just a magical place where we could roam free and enjoy being outside. So all this to say-last night was perfect-the weather was in the 70's and clear skies all around. I got done at work early and headed to pick up Addie and off we went to run errands and then made a trip to a park that she had not been to before. She was so excited!! There was a sand pit-bridges to cross-and very high slides. She had a blast! Then I told her we needed to head on out to grab a bite to eat. On the way to eat I told her "I love you-and she said "I love you Momma" ahhhh and then came the tears. It was such a sweet moment when there is no doubt in that little voice that she loves you with all of her heart. This year of the 2's has really been the best year of my life-she is so funny and learning so much. My greatest joy is watching Addison with my Mom and Dad-they are so fun with her just the way they were when I was little. I feel very blessed to get to have my Mom and Dad around to watch Addison grow up and that they are there to help me along the way. I think it is awesome to get to teach her all about the world around her-what more could I ask for. I love being a Mom.
