In just one month, Miss Addiekins is going to be one years old.
Considering I'm not a "time flies" kind of person, the past year seemed to go by awfully quickly, don't you think?
All right, how about a little catching up on Addie's numbers.
When I took this photo, I mentally crossed off taking Addie's #7 picture. Except you'll notice that there aren't actually seven kids in the picture. Not sure what I was thinking...maybe because there are usually seven little kids scrambling around (and then the two older boys make up the nine Family Farm cousins).
So, I doodled in a favorite literary friend of ours. Mo Willems fans will recognize him. (Hi Pigeon!)
Oh, and the masks are from my parents. They got them in Scotland (or somewhere in the UK) when they visited my sister in June.
Would you believe me if I told you we planned our Six Flags trip just so we could get this photo?
Maybe you would, considering I did make all the cousins dress up as nativity scene characters.
Truthfully, however, it was just a happy accident. Six at Six Flags. It was as if Addie dreamed of it in her sleep and it came true.
Last photo, courtesy of our garden produce and catching us *finally* up to date:
Squash! Zucchini! And a cucumber! Which I don't think is technically summer squash, but Adelynn would not let go of that cucumber without a fight.
I'm not fighting over a cucumber.
A tomato or a green pepper? Absolutely. But not a cucumber.
At eleven months old, Addie is very mobile, though not walking. She's a fabulous eater, a terrible sleeper, a loud squawker, quick to smile and wave, and thinks it's hilarious when she bites my shoulder. She has a quirky way of crawling around. Actually, she doesn't crawl. She scoots. And she spins. And then she scoots some more. We like to call her Scooter McGavin (ala Happy Gilmore). Or sometimes Baby Hunchback of Notre Dame. I doubt she'll appreciate that moniker when she gets older, so maybe we'll just stick with Scooter.
Here's a brief clip of her scooting around in some streetside courtyard in San Francisco. (You'll notice that as soon as I mention I'm taking a movie, Sydney scrambles into the scene. Drama Queen, much?)
Tomorrow, pictures from our road trip!
