Two years is sneaking up on us so fast. Now I know exactly what all those other parents meant when they kept telling us it would go by in a flash. While everyday in the first year of Addison’s life seemed to go so slowly as we were counting down each day past the heart transplant, now the clock has sped up. Our big girl is constantly impressing us with her newfound skills. We have finally started thinking about a two year birthday celebration and are opting for something very small with family. I suppose that’s also the upside of not going to too many group activities with an immune-compromised child…the Princess doesn’t have a huge circle of little buddies! But hey, I always say it’s quality not quantity that counts.
Here are Addison’s new tricks this month:
❤ Climbing up on any and everything in the house. This includes standing on top of the dining room chairs and the coffee table. Last week, we caught her standing on the step stool which was precariously placed on top of the ottoman bench at the foot of our bed!
❤ Running and walking just about everywhere.
❤ Going to her first hockey game and soccer game. Go Giants and Whitecaps! (Thanks to the BCCHF for both opportunities.)
❤ Learning her numbers and letters.
❤ Giving everyone hugs.
❤ Dropping her one and only nap. (Mommy and Daddy aren’t too impressed with this new trick.)
Happy 23 months big girl!
Elaine, Aaron and Addison
