Have a night by myself here, so I thought I'd update with a little bit about each of my kiddos.
-Eli is still a joy! Laughs all the time. Not crawling, but scoots backwards everywhere. Eats anything and everything and definitely prefers table food over baby food. Loves his daddy. Well-mannered, except when teething (which is NOW) :)

-Addie is a sweetheart, unless she doesn't get her way ;) She's testing the waters with me!! She adores her brother and her dad and is ALWAYS good to them.

Has very vivid dreams at night-- like this morning she woke up and told me she wanted to show me something. She wanted to show me how she could stand on a bouncy ball and balance/walk around the room, like in a circus. Of course she couldn't do it, so then she got upset because- "But Mama! I did it in the middle of the night!"

She is back to napping and does it almost every day. It's because it's her choice now. I ask her what she wants to do for quiet time, and she always chooses to take a nap.

In bed at night, Addie must be laying there thinking about things that she did during the day. I almost always get a 'deep thought' question from her before she falls asleep. Tonight's was- "What happens if I swallow a little bit of toothpaste? Where does it go? Does it go in my tummy and out my butt like food? Is it ok to swallow?" :) Ahhh- the mind of a 3-year-old :)

Our friend Adam's dad passed away this week at a young age as well-- we talked about it and Addie said, "Adam's dad is with Papa in heaven! Maybe they're friends! I can't wait to see them some day when I die and go to heaven." Then she quickly added, "But not yet, Mom." :) We have a very 'with it' young girl on our hands!

Finally, Lynn and Tricia found two caterpillars for Addie so we've been watching them at our house. They are named Katie and Bob. Bob turned into chrysalis today and we witnessed him shedding his skin and becoming this amazing green blob!! It was the coolest thing I've ever seen! Now Addie constantly checks to see if Katie is still a caterpillar :)

Love the stories! Your babies are RIDICULOUSLY cute! Our friend Bob is marrying a Katie so your caterpillars are perfectly named ;)
