September 27th, this little sass a frass, in all her glory, turned 3! Last night when we were eating dinner Gerrad said 'Is it me or has Addaline managed to grown up and turn into this big girl over the last few weeks?' What do you think I did? Any guesses? Yep you got it, I CRIED! My baby isn't a baby any more, and its hard for me to grasp for some reason. Now I know she'll always be my 2nd born 'baby,' who I have this ridiculous attachment to from the year I spent nursing her...but now she's a back talking, loud noise fearing, big sister loving, dirt admiring, mickey mouse theme song singing, grandparent scheming, 3 year old who doesn't need her mommy as much anymore, cute little independent girl!
We celebrated her birthday with friends and family this past Saturday at a local pumpkin patch, and let me tell you, it was a BLAST for all, especially the birthday girl and her cute little girl friends. Addaline's little boyfriend couldn't make it, looks like he would have been highly out numbered. The girls rode the train about 8,001 times, went down the inflatable slide a few times, ran, yelled, jumped and played to their little hearts content. Addaline was SO worn out from the day's events, that the poor girl went to bed at 7pm.
Here are a few shots from the party. This slide was the hit of the party, even our friend Carrie took her sweet little baby, Adelyn down the slide, it was a hoot!
Here are some of the girls on the train. I think this was the favorite attraction to all the little girls, especially the birthday girl- she rode it NO less than about 5-7 times!
Addaline just tickles me sometimes... when we were singing her Happy Birthday, she was singing right along, to herself! HA! She was SO sidetracked by the train while we were opening presents, that when we got home and put them all away, she acted like it was the FIRST time she had seen ANY of them. She is her father's child, to the T! Poor Macie's been cursed with being my clone, raging emotions and all (send reinforcements when the teen years hit please)!
Wish my husband would have reminded me to take off my sunglasses, then the pictures of me with the girls would have actually been cute, ha! The one with Gerrad and the girls turned out as cute as can be, and the one of Addaline making her usual face... ahhh... typical!
So happy belated birthday baby girl! SO glad you enjoyed your party! We love you more than you'll ever know!
