Auntie M's Visit!

We had so much fun this week! Auntie M (Carol) came to stay with us for 2 days! It was such a blast! One of Mommy and Auntie M's favorite things to do is play with her fancy camera and take pictures of our sweet little Addie. These are some of the highlights from her visit...

My Aunt Kristie sent Addie an adorable outfit, and this hat goes with it. Love it!!

This one requires a little explanation....I read that it's a good idea to do sippy cup training in the bathtub because the water will dribble all down the front of them. So, every night we have sippy cup time in the tub. Addie likes to grip the cup with her teeth and hold it straight up in the air, all the while, water is dribbling down her chest!
Grandma Cece and Grandpa sent her these cute snowman pajama's...I think she looks so snuggly cute in them!
Here is my baby doing the SPLITS!! (And notice the says, Daddy's Favorite Present.) Thanks for that too, Cece!
Grandma Cece and Grandpa called and had Addie open one gift that night before she went to bed. Notice they are in the picture too, on speaker phone on the table....they bought her the neatest book! It's Clement C. Moore's Twas the Night Before Christmas, but with the turn of each page you hear Grandma and Grandpa's voices reading the story. At the end it says, "Merry Christmas to Addie and to all a good night!" So special! We have decided to make this book a part of our Christmas Eve family tradition. It's so special!

We also celebrated Carol's birthday with a yummy steak dinner and chocolate molten lava cakes for dessert! We love you Carol!!!
Auntie M brought fun gifts for Miss Addie, including a sweet Christmas tree charm for her charm bracelet, and this adorable outfit with leggings!! We had to try it on for a fashion show!

I love this says "Mommy's Cute Cookie" with a gingerbread baby on it.
Last year, my friend Stacie gave Addie this adorable stocking! We squeezed her into it for a photo op, of course! Isn't she the cutest? It was a tight fit! What a fun visit we had! Can't wait to do it again next year! :-)

I love the picture of Addie looking up at her Auntie M after her bath. So much love and adoration from both of them in that picture.
