Time has once again spun my life into a spiral of disbelief. Not only has so much happened in the past year, I can’t believe how long it’s been since I actually updated my blog! I was doing quite well while I was pregnant, keeping a wonderful little journal to one day look back on. I regret not doing the same while I have been so blessed to watch her grow into this fun bubbly little toddler. The obvious reason would be, I had a tad bit more time before she arrived then I do now. So much has happened in the past year I have no idea where to even start!
Hannah has grown up so much in the past year! She is a wonderful, amazing little girl. 10 years old, in grade five, and going on 16. She loves French, and is doing very well at it! Sometimes I need to remind her that she needs to speak English just so I can understand her. I do hope she keeps it up, we all know that a second language can come in handy in this world of ours. I can’t even explain how much she seems to adore Addison. Something about Hannah just lights Addison up. All she has to do is look at her, and Addie has the biggest and brightest smile across her face. Nobody can get Addison all excited like Hannah can! She is a wonderful big sister, and an amazing daughter This month she wants to become a archaeologist. Last month it was a fashion designer. If I know one thing, Hannah will become whatever she wants to become. Only because she is a wonderfully stubborn little girl who dreams big!
Addison, Elizabeth, Brett where do I start! She is seriously the joy of the household right now. The last time I wrote about her, she was a sack of potatoes! Now she is a running, tooth grinning little toddler, with a giggle that can melt our hearts. She took her first step in her ninth month of life, and started walking two weeks after that, and now two months later she is running all over the place! She has been a blessing, and a challenge. Teething has really been a huge bother to her though. I can’t even imagine how a little one must feel cutting teeth for the first time. She now has her two bottom front teeth and one top tooth. I can see she has the other top front tooth coming in as well. She makes sure that we all feel a little bit of her pain too! If I’m not holding a cranky baby all day long, then she’s waking us up at 4:30 in morning for the day. So that’s 3 teeth already, one coming in, 20 baby teeth in total, we are in for many more early mornings aren’t we? Addison doesn’t say too much yet. We get momma, dadda, Hannah, and I have heard her say hi dadda. I’m going to enjoy this silent moment for the time being. I have a 10 year old daughter, and I only wish we could go back to these days when she didn’t know how to speak! haha Addison still has a really nice red tint to her hair, although there isn’t too much hair to talk about. She’s getting a mullet for sure. I promised that we wouldn’t let it get out of hand, so that may mean a teenie haircut in her near future All in all she is definitely the blessing we were asking for, and I thank god for her every day, as I do for all my family.
As for Matt, all is wonderful with him. It’s business as usual, for this proud pappa! Still working for himself, in his office down in the basement, tossing out amazing sites for every project he completes. I couldn’t be prouder of him. Not only does he have an incredible talent, but even after all these years he still strives to get better! Not many people can say that about themselves. I love to watch him when he’s looking at our kids. It makes me so happy to know I married a man who is not only a wonderful father, but an amazing husband It’s pretty cool to watch his reactions when it comes to Addison. Not being there for Hannah’s infant childhood, it’s great to see all these firsts through Matt’s eyes. I am, or should I say we are all very lucky girls.
Thanks baby And watch out, sharing a home with 3 girls, you have plenty to look forward too;)
As for me, I am exactly where I am supposed to be! I’m sure of it. I find myself now in a position to do something totally different starting in Feb, and be here to raise my family. How wonderful is that! No more commuting, no more nonsense, only that from which I create myself. I love being home when Hannah walks through the door. I love waking up each morning knowing I will not miss out on my kids lives. So all in all this is where I am supposed to be.
