Fun at a Hotel

Last weekend we met the Coffindaffers at a hotel for a little bit of fun. The kids were excited to go swimming and play together. The hotel had a very nice set up with the pool area being located right outside our hotel rooms along with a play area. Addy was very excited about going swimming. After thinking back, we really hadn't taken her to a hotel before so this was a new experience for her. She slept very well in her own double bed. Lots of fun was had by all. The pics are a little blurry as I totally forgot my camera and had to use my phone:(

Birthday Parties

This weekend we attended two birthday parties. The first one was for Logan and Landon, twin boys who live across the street from us. They turned 1! After their party we headed over to Isabelle's party who lives next door to us. She turned 2!

Now that Addy understands birthday parties and what they are all about, she was really looking forward to them and had a great time. I would be lying if I didn't say that attending events like this makes me a little sad to see what a disadvantage she has physically with the other kids. It's difficult because she is at the age where she wants to play with them and do what they are doing. When we attend many functions, we find that typically there isn't enough room for her to use her walker which is her only form of independence. She is then forced to sit with us rather than run and play with other kids her age. I can only hope that her time will eventually come. Here are a few cute pics from the day.

Happy Valentine's Day

Addy really got into Valentine's day this year. She was very excited about her party at school and giving Valentines to all her friends. She sat and helped me write out each Valentine. Her contribution was drawing a face on each Valentine as you can see by the picture. She loves to draw and faces seems to be her favorite. For a little girl who came out of the womb with very strange looking hands, I think she's doing a great job. Never in a million years would I have guessed her fine motor skills to be this far along at 2 1/2 years old.

She had a great time at her party which I attended with her. On Valentine's day her and Aaron brought me breakfast in bed which she thought was pretty cool along with a homemade card from her which of course included several faces.

Snow Fun!

Addy had a fun time in the new fallen snow today. We didn't stay out long, but it really is one of her first experiences this year with the snow. She went on a quick sled ride at Grandma and Grandpa's house a while back , but never really got out of the sled to play. She has seen Max & Ruby (TV show) make snow angels and snow bunnies on TV and she had her heart set on making one. She tried very hard. She loved throwing snow balls and really wanted to make a snowman, but it just wasn't the right kind of snow. After getting cold outside, we came in and warmed up with a nice cup of hot cocoa....her new favorite thing.

Low Key Weekend

Well we were suppose to go away with the Coffindaffers this weekend, but instead Addy came down with a bout of pneumonia. So, we canceled our trip and laid low all weekend. Even though she's sick, she has been in great spirits. So what does a little girl do when she has pneumonia? Well, she primps her bear and files his nails as well as gets her own nails painted of course! How fun! Then she falls asleep while playing the computer with daddy. Hopefully we are on our way to recovery.
