Your Birth Time Shots

Dear Addison

I am so sorry I am a day late with this post, but having fun with you yesterday was way more important.

I can not believe you are 3, it scares me a great deal, only last week you couldn’t talk and were toddling around, now you never take a breath and run everywhere.

We had a lovely day yesterday for your birthday, following a pretty brilliant party on Saturday. It started with an early start, I think you were over excited, you came down to your present’s, which for the 1st time ever you ripped open all of your own accord, just proof you are growing so quickly.

You loved your new dollhouse (not that I blame you) and played and played till you were forced to get dressed. I thought I would give you a choice of outfits to wear, you are obsessed with animals so I thought you would pick the cat tee, but nope the flowery pant suit was your choice and you looked adorable.

Mama and Daddo spent the day with just you, we took you to make your 1st ever Build a Bear, you chose a My Little Pony, which is not surprising they are a current fave. You were very unsure of the noises and process, but the end result made you smile.

You then asked for your lunch of choice, a McDonalds Happy Meal, which you ate rather quickly, as your shoes were bothering you we headed to get you your 1st pair of Converse, Mama had wanted the white, but you loved the mint green, they are so cute, so we went with your choice.

Then onto the park, where we were the only people, instead of your usual playing on the slides, you chose the new Wheelchair roundabout, but instead of you wanting to go round you wanted to push us. Typical Addison always in charge.

So your Birthday picture (taken at 2.05pm time of your birth) was pushing Daddo on the roundabout, you both giggled so hard and it really was pure perfection.

After picking up your brothers, it was home for a play, some treats and waiting for all your visitors for your tea party. You were spoilt rotten, a Zoo/Farm to enrich your love of animals, you are animal crazy and so many other very great gifts.

I think it was a perfect day for my 3 year old girl, my little copycat, who calls everyone Darling, whose current favourite words are “indeed” and “my pleasure”. To the little big girl who can eat the most sour of sweets without a wince.

I love the love you feel, the way you hold my hand when out in the car, the way you ask for a cuddle and never want to let go.

You make my heart so proud there are not words to describe it, I am very thankful I was chosen to be your Mama, after such a hard start I promise to never ever let you go.

I love you Addy-Wads – my little Pinkle.

Draw With Me – Christmas

Written by InnocentCharmer. Posted in 2013, addison

This Mummy Loves...

It has been a couple of months since I joined in with my lovely friend Sonia and her daughter Maisie’s link “Draw With Me”. It is such a fun linky and I love to spend time doing it with Addison but life has been crazy and with me back to work and her starting nursery our time has been made shorter.But I was determined (by the skin of my teeth) to join in with this months theme of “Christmas”. I knew I wanted to make some Christmas Cards from Addison for her grandparents and thought it would tie in well, she could draw some pretty Christmas themed cards, well that was the plan, but the little Miss refused to use colours (crayons) as at school she paints, so paint we did, it is drawing in a sense.

I tried to get her to paint a tree, well it is in an abstract way, which works well for me as I love Picasso. You can see the green of the tree and then the yellow is the star on top, I am not altogether sure what the red is.

The second picture is sparkly lights, she is loving Christmas purely for the sparkly lights, so she painted them, I love those foam paintbrushes they are ideal for Addison’s age. I think it looks like a Bokeh tree.

I have noticed a difference in Addison sitting down to art tasks etc since she has been at Nursery and it has only been 3 weeks, I really hope to do more fun activities in the new year, she has some crafty Xmas presents coming her way.

Don’t forget to check out the other entries, I love Maisie’s drawing, not only are there lots of Christmas items but the colours match too.

A Day In The Life – Addison ( 2yrs 6mths)

Written by InnocentCharmer. Posted in 2013, addison

I have decided to do a new little series on my blog –  A Day In The Life.

I have a terrible memory and as the months turn into years I am already forgetting things I want to share with the children, so what better way to record them than my blog.

So today is Addison’s Day at 2 1/2 years old.

Mummy and Addy day, our 1st real one.

The day always starts with several breekies for Addison, cereal usually 1st, followed by yoghurt/toast and fruit

off out with addison

All dressed and ready to go out with Mummy, we always have to say “Just One Toy” or you would take a whole bunch, today’s choice Big Doggy, you were excited I let you have your hair down and got to wear your star hat.

As we went to the library we found some Christmas lights, Addison was very excited “sparkly lights”.

library day

Library time is a major favourite for Addison, I love the fact my little girl is a bookworm, we had the whole children’s section to ourselves, Addison was beside with excitement, we loved the very large Dear Zoo book.

Then as always Addison talked Mummy into buying her a little treat, cuddly toys are big in Addy’s world, she chose the Piggy and named it “Baby Piggy” she isn’t very inventive with her names.

We then headed for our very 1st Costa date, Addison enjoyed some snacks, then we shared cake, or should I say Mummy had a mouthful, she didn’t think much of the Babychino. Hello Kitty came along with Baby Piggy too.

addison and the guide dogs

On our way to the Supermarket we had to stop and give the guide dogs a lovely cuddle

lunch time

We then headed home for a quick-lunch and nap time

glasses with Addison

After nap it was time for Paw Patrol and selfies, Addison is currently obsessed with taking pictures, she put on her glasses so she could be “Just Like Mummy”.

Then the day finished with playtime with Deacon whilst we waited for Daddy to run the bath, bath time has been difficult but thankfully baby having a wash made it easier today.

addison's evening

All in all it was a lovely day with my beautiful child, there are so many sweet things she does every day, the cutest things she says. But she said “this was the best day ever” and that makes it perfect for me.
