Adorable Addie at 16 months

I am finally blogging about Addie! She has been struggling with molars coming in over the last few weeks. Her bottom two are in, and the top two are still working their way through. Teething with molars sure are a bummer. I really don't remember the other two girls having such a hard time. I wouldn't be a happy camper if I was in pain and uncomfortable, either. She really is wanting to be held almost constantly, I'm trying to enjoy holding her, sometimes it gets a little tricky when someone else wants to be held or a meal needs made. I do enjoy her hugs and snuggles.

She is such a girl. It really makes me laugh at how quickly my girls have picked up on "girl stuff." Addie is almost always found holding a purse, a phone, a doll or any combination of the three. That is a phone in her right hand.

When Addie is really excited she will make a vibrato sound with her voice. It is hilarious! We love it. We have been able to get her to do it by asking her what sound a horse makes and mimicking a "neigh". Once again we are laughing!

Addie is our little cleaner! She loves to grab a dryer sheet as I am folding clothes and wipe the floor. It is so cute. It makes me feel good, maybe she really does notice I clean. She is also good to pick up toys. She loves to help when we sing the "Clean up, clean up" song.

The girls really are creative and enjoy playing together. The girls figured out that they could pull Addie around on a blanket. It was quite entertaining. I'm sure Grandma Carol would be cringing if she had seen it, she crocheted this afghan, it is getting used in various ways!

Addie is creative on her own. She likes to cover herself with a blanket and walk around. Sunday night we were calling her the "Ghost". She was loving the laughter she created. She really is a joy!

Ellie, being the big sister, really likes to help Addie. Sometimes it creates a problem, such as: crying, bumps, bruises, etc. But Ellie does have a big heart for her sister.

Gracie is a great helper with Addie. She can get Addie out of the crib. She is always watching out for Addie. Gracie has been good to help feed Addie on occasion. They have a great relationship. Gracie asks Addie to say a word, and Addie does it. Only recently will she do it for me too! It is sure cute to see Addie sign. She is not signing near as much as the other girls (my fault) but we are still able to understand what she wants most of the time.
