Spring Break

It has been a busy few weeks around here with spring break and the kids having some time off school. We were finally able to get together with our friends from Wheaton who also have a little girl from China. You can see pictures of the girls here .
Aunt Lisa and Uncle Eric came to visit from PA., and then the kids and I went to Michigan for 3 days to visit some friends......
Look how big Addison looks next to Aidan!
Riley is such a great "big brother"!
This is at our friends, the Davito's, in Michigan.
Addison is now walking more than crawling, and sleeping and napping less. She still isn't talking much, mostly babbling. We were eating dinner the other night and she patted my arm and said "Mama". We were all so excited and made such a big deal out of it, that she patted Russ's arm and said "Mama", too! Ok, so we're still working on that one. (she also thinks SHE is mama, and Riley is mama!)
Wearing her "I love America" shirt, from her GREAT Aunt Margo and Uncle Dave!
Could she be any cuter?!?! (yes, we're a little biased!)

We had at least 2 days this week that felt like spring. Addison loves being outside! We are definitely looking forward to summer. And, Addie learned how to drink from a straw this week. I guess she will go from the bottle straight to straws, since she wants nothing to do with sippy cups. What a funny girl! Oh, and by the way, I did not fix her hair to stand straight up in the swing picture, it was really windy that day. :-)

My Brown-Eyed Girl!
This is pure joy!
Addison learned how to stand up this week! She thinks it is so funny when she stands up then falls back down. She laughs and laughs. She cracks me up, every day!!
Thanks for my new sweater Grandma Carlson, see how pretty I look?!
