Remington is Seven Months Old!

Remington turned seven months old this weekend!

For a little guy who's barely older than half a year, he has a lot going on. He started crawling this weekend (not too sure how I feel about that) and he's sprouted his first tooth!

Ah, my little prince is growing up!

Monthly updates and photo sessions are always something I look forward too. (I think it helps me deal with my kiddos growing up) And originally, when thinking about this post, I planned on saying something about how mobile he was for not being able to crawl.

Since that topic is now out the window, here are some other fun facts about our crawling seven month old.

He's not a fan of breakfast, could take or leave lunch but never ever misses dinner. 

He steals ear rings from my ear and pulls cords out of the socket.

He started sitting on his own the afternoon of his 6 month well check and started crawling not even a month later.

He loves to drink water from a straw so we've taken to calling him our little hummingbird.

People comment about how relaxed and easy going he is, but for some reason, he's only made it all the way through church in the nursery a couple of times.

He's his big sister's biggest fan.

Happy seven months sweet boy! 

We wuv you Wemi Bird!

Almost Three

In just over a month, our little lady will be 3 years old. 

Addy is a big fan of Birthdays and has been asking about her Birthday for months now. If you ask her what happens around her Birthday, she'll tell you that the leaves will come back on the tree because her Birthday is in the Spring.

I love that her Birthday is in the Spring. It's such a happy time of year. 

Since we talk about her Birthday a lot, we already have a few plans that might involve the trampoline park and a few of her friends. She asked to have it at the trampoline park. Isn't that fun. Remember when she asked for an orange last year?

Speaking of last year, I can't believe how she's grown up since then. Her hair is longer, her feet are bigger (almost a 7 now!!) and her vocabulary is larger.

She copies everything and is the best little momma to her baby. She came in from an outing to her Granmarie's looking like this and when I asked to take a picture she held her hand up and said: "But I can't take a picture, I have a boo boo."

She might also be a little bit of a hypochondriac. If you mention a sore throat or any ailments around her, she will suddenly come down with the same thing.

Addy is sweet and caring, asks for hugs and often tells me I'm the best I'm the best Momma in the world. 

It's taken six months but she's having a hard time not being the baby anymore. She is however, working on being a "big girl" and has totally mastered using the potty.

She's goofy, always talking or singing and always asking questions.

She asks to paint her nails, wear necklaces, headbands and fix my hair and on an outing with her Dad to the mall recently, she asked to shop for new shoes. She's such a girl! 

Addy is always role playing and pretending, asking us to say certain things to interact with her in her land of make believe. 

She's popular amongst our friend's little ones despite having shy and introverted tendencies. You might say that her and her cousin Carter are best buddies but she would correct you and say that they are "friends" since she's a girl and girls aren't "buddies."

The other day, she wasn't sharing well with a girl at the mall play place and on the way home I told her if she was nice to the girl, she could have made a new friend. She replied by saying: "But Carter's my friend so I don't need a new friend."

Here are few other funny things she's been saying lately:

Matt: I found a fun restaurant by my office that I would like to take you to sometime
Addy: Oh, is there a little potty there in case I need to go potty?
Matt: I don't know if there's a little one but there's probably a potty
Addy: I know what! We can take my little potty!

Addy to Remi:
When momma tells me to come in here and play with you I do it! Listen up this is important! Calm down little guy! Ok?!?

I'm the microphone lady. You get out of the trampoline park!

She calls the cheese grater the sharp

Addy: Can you say "Addy?"
Me: Addy
Addy: Hold on let me finish chewing'............... what?

Oh Adelyne.
