S: Addi's Terrible Twos - Her third year
BC: A daughter brings a special joy That comes from deep inside, And as she enjoys her childhood She fills your heart with pride. The love she gives so freely Is a rare and beautiful gift. She brings the sunshine right indoors And gives your heart a lift. With every busy, happy year She’s dearer than before, Through every stage through every age, You love her more and more. | Mama and Daddy love you so much Addi Gal.
1: Some may say "They are like two peas in a pod". I say they are far from it. They are polar opposites. Both are precious, but in such different ways. They adore each other, but fight like cats and dogs. Addi loves to pretend. Cayne is addicted to tractors. Cayne loves to be outside with his Daddy...no matter how hot or cold and no matter what Jason is up to. Addi loves to help unload groceries and dry dishes. Addi is very dramatic and can turn on the tears to get what she wants. Addi sleeps in her own bed (granted it is in our room. Cayne sleeps between Mama and Daddy(I am going to work on changing that soon). Cayne can ride his power wheels truck like a pro. Addi is more concerned with the radio and does not even touch the steering wheel when she is in the driver seat. Cayne likes to be in control...and Addi is usually good with him being in control. Both are potty trained and I am soooooo glad. They are still wearing pull-ups at night, but I can deal with that. They like to tell on each other and Chase. I am so thankful to have such precious little blessings. It is not easy, but I would not trade it for anything. Time flies by so fast. I know one day I will wake up and my nest will be empty. For now I am trying to enjoy every minute of their sweet little lives.

97: I let Cayne and Addi pick the theme for their party. We ended up with a Hello Kitty Tractor party. They talked months about the party. I had a tractor made with Hello Kitty as the driver. They both loved it. As soon as the candles were blown out Cayne plucked Hello Kitty from the tractor and ate her. He was so quick we almost missed it. He is so bad, I was waiting for a melt down, but Addi was content when we gave her the tractor:)
98: She will fill our lives with sunshine.... And our hearts with love.
99: Well this year has ended with us making a big move. We have sold our house and are getting ready to build again. Cayne and Addi will be starting school next month. They are sooo excited. They are finally sleeping in their room (but together). Addi is such a sweet girl. She watches out for Cayne. She is a bit on the stubborn side and does not like to be told NO. We laugh at all the crazy things she does. So far she has very little street smarts, but seems to have lots of book smarts:) She is learning her colors well...much better than Cayne. She sings ALL the time. Cayne definitely has the stronger personality, so she enjoys any alone time she can get . | Addi weighs right at 29lbs at 3
