Addalyn Can Do The Splits!

She learned how to from Sterling, of course. She does it all the time and tells me how to do it:

"Okay, Mama, you have to do this--put you hands out in fwont of you, then put them on the gwound, and then do the spwits!"

Crown Center

We took the kiddos to Crown Center recently on a fairly warm day. They had a great time, running around outside and eating at Fritz's (the choo choo place). Then we went to Kaleidoscope where Addy wanted to do nothing but cut paper the whole time. She loved it since she's never gotten to use scissors before. She'd cut, cut, cut and then tape, tape, tape.

Macey's Vocabulary

Macey stood up on her own today! I know that may seem silly since she's been walking for a couple of weeks, but this morning, she lost her balance and fell, then got in the yoga "down dog" position and got back up by herself. Up until today she'd have to crawl over to furniture or a wall to get back up. I guess it's the little things that excite me! :)
She's also added several new words to her vocabulary:
mo =milk or drink
dow =down OR up
papa =papa (duh)
She LOVES to play peek-a-boo. She never gets tired of it the way mommy does! She's mastered the fake cry. Addy just has to get near her when she has a toy and she screams and cries and tries getting Addy in trouble. It used to upset Add, but she's used to the little stinker now. Ask her any question and the answer is "no?" or "huh-uh" while shaking her head no. Also, I can't even count that number of times she says "uh-oh" throughout the day!

Biker Baby

This baby is scared of nothing! She's climbed in drawers, on the fireplace, on top of large toys and tries climbing into the bath. She got onto the Dora 4-Wheeler a few weeks ago and rode it like a pro!

You Are My Sunshine!

Addalyn enjoys singing "You Are My Sunshine" to her baby sister from time to time. This time though, it's followed by "Low" and then "Single Ladies" (for those of you who can't understand what in the heck she's saying!). Right after I stopped recording, Mace tried getting out of the chair and Addy said "no-no baby girl!" and grabbed onto her little ponytail like it was a handle and pulled her back up! Poor Macey Lee!
