All In A Day's Work

Dave and I have been wondering when this moment would occur... Addie finally decided she was ready to walk all in one day!

Tuesday, April 06, 2010


It happened. Addie is now ten months going on eleven! I thought she was going to be my LITTLE baby forever. I wouldn't exactly call Addie "little" anymore. She is our cute, little rascal who loves to cuddle, read books, get into most things, play with anything that makes noise, and see/pet DOGGIES. One of Addie's first words was doggie. To David's delight, she's obsessed! My apologies to those dog lovers out there (2 of which reside in my home), but I am not a fan of dogs. The other day she found the DVD UP, squealed with glee, started saying, "doggie" over and over again, and crawled right to the TV. Yes, she is absolutely in LOVE. And I am in LOVE with her. After ten months of having her brighten each and every day, we have a hard time remembering what life was like before our Addie May. What a blessing she has been in our lives! We cannot thank our Heavenly Father enough for sending us this sweet girl.

It has FINALLY started warming up in Chicago! Thank goodness! Addie and I headed out to the Botanical Gardens for an afternoon. We had fun walking around and looking at a lot of dirt and bare trees...spring has not sprung in the gardens. Oh well, we had fun taking some pictures.

The Easter Bunny came to the Graham home on Sunday! Addie found her easter basket with some fun goodies. The Easter Bunny also hid some plastic eggs filled with baby treats. I thought Dave and I were going to have to help her find all the eggs, but to our surprise Addie quickly realized that the eggs had yummy things to eat inside. She crawled from egg to egg, eating what was inside, and then moving on to the next egg. It was hilarious...good times.

Addie loves her Daddy. He usually has to go to the library to study because we have a hard time leaving him alone if he is home. Daddy tried to study at home recently, and Addie wanted to help. Probably not the most effective studying partner, but she sure is cute.
