We're 2.5!

Since a year is a looooong time to wait to do updates - here are some quick Austin and Addie updates!



The A-Team are crazy, rambunctious and sweet little people (are they still toddlers?? I don't know!). They play hard but still recognize when Mommy or Daddy could use a little snuggle time. Recently we've noticed that Austin and Addie are so thoughtful with each other. If getting a snack, they make sure to get two to share with the other one. They like playing weird games that they come up with together. They like hanging out and watching movies together. This is not to say that they don't still fight like cats and dogs sometimes but they are definitely best friends.

I wish I could figure out their eating patterns. Austin and Addie either completely clear their plates and ask for more or they eat a bite of air and say they are full. One day they love bananas, the next day they are gross. Oh well...I assume that will get better someday!

Potty training is still going well. They have accidents every once in a while and are still in diapers at night but we're moving in the right direction!


Austin - you are such a light in our lives. You have the brightest blue eyes that are usually smiling. Here are some things you are up to:
- You love playing chase and "hiding" behind our sheer curtains. I love when you come over and smile your devilish grin and say "you can't get me!"
- You love Stellar a lot - it's really cute when you sit and talk to him or try to lay on his back.
- You love your sister even more than Stellar. You like to bring her snacks and ask if she wants to play. You still call her Addie Girl....which I adore.
- You are sweet to your brothers but sometimes don't understand that they aren't quite walking yet.
- You are oddly obsessed with stickers. It's a must for you to have no less than 2 stickers at all times. I'm honestly not sure why these are a vital part of your life.
- When you ask for something, you say please in the absolutely most precious voice.
- When you grab my cheeks and give me a sloppy good night kiss, you capture my heart a little more.



Addie - you are most definitely the most perfect princess I've ever met. Here are some things you are up to:
- We're pretty sure that you are going to be the boss of the kids. You are really good at keeping everyone in line.
- You are still working on your singing career and love to sing...loudly.
- You love love love your big brother. If Austin falls or bonks his head, you are first on the scene to ask if he's ok.
- You wake up at least once a night crying. I'm pretty sure it's your way to get Daddy to snuggle with you for a little bit, something he doesn't mind at all!
- You are pretty fearless so you get a lot of scrapes and bruises. This means you ask for a lot of bandaids.
- You are so sweet with your little brothers. You talk to them in baby voices and make sure they have food on their trays or toys to play with.
- You love sparkly things and playing dressup. This makes me so happy - I look forward to all of the girly things we can do!



Austin and Addie - y'all are so much fun and amazing to watch grow. It's awesome to watch your personalities grow and your bond strengthen. We love you both so much and are so blessed that you are our A-Team!
