Happy Birthday Addison!

Oh my sweet Addison! I can't believe you have been a part of our lives for 4 years, but I can't remember what life was like before you! Everyday you amaze us, make us laugh, and touch our hearts! So what are you up to as a 4 year old...

You love art stuff! You love to color, draw and paint.

You can write your name, but sometimes do "b" for "d" and your "s" is backwards sometimes, but it still looks beautiful to me!

You love to pretend! You are a princess or ballerina, you are a mommy...you love to play with your brother. Yes, that's right. His name is David and he has been a part of our lives for about 4 months now. You will say he is pretend, but he does everything with us. We sometimes have to roll down the window to let him jump in when we leave him places!

You love to sing! You will sing along with any song and pretend you know the words.

You have really grown this past year, and you are very tall. I am buying size 5 clothes for you! You still let me pick out your clothes for the most part, but still prefer to wear dresses. You completely dress yourself down to your shoes. You have started requesting that I leave you hair down, and not put a bow in it. We try to compromise!

You have true friends now. You enjoy your friends and look forward to playing with them at school.

You are shy at times, and will tell me you are going to be shy for a little while when we go somewhere. It just takes you a little time to warm up.

You went to VBS for the first time this summer!

You love God and have started asking questions! You can recite the Lord's Prayer and retell many Bible stories. You asked me the other day if God was dead. I said no, why? You answered -because He is in Heaven! You keep me on my toes!

You still love your family very much. You love to play with your grandmothers, aunts, uncles, and cousins.

You are a great big sister! You love Ansley very much. You like to rub your head against hers and cannot keep your hands off her head!

You've really become a Daddy's girl! You want to go with him on errands, and like for him to get you ready for bed time!

You still rarely nap! You have rest time when we are home, and you will lie in bed and read books. Occasionally you will go to sleep. You still sleep around 10 1/2 hours at night. You go to bed around 8 or 8:30 and sleep until 6:30 or 7.

You are still a good eater, but have become a little more picky! You still love fruit, and eat veges well- with Ranch! You really like sweets now, and always ask for dessert.

Addison- I love watching you grow and learn! You are a precious little girl!
