Welcome back Addison

Addison has been away in Charleston, SC with her Grandparents for one whole week. It has been so helpful not to worry who is going to pick her up from school, keep her at their house until Matt gets home and so on. Luckily we have great neighbors that are always willing to pick her up and keep her at any time, but I still feel like we are being invasive.

So Addison took a nice, long vacation during spring break. Problem is, we missed her like CRAZY.

Matt's parents brought her in last night and I almost cried just seeing her and how much she had grown! I couldnt stop hugging and kissing her cute little face. I had to watch it cuz I was starting to get the annoyed  'your touching me too much' look. 1 week, that's all it was and I swear she looked like a 5 year old. She brought a giant bag full of stuff to show me, a new outfit to twirl around in and show off, told me all about her escapades (especially seeing the white alligator at the aquarium) and had a HUGE smile on her face the entire time she was here.

The best part was when Matt walked in after work. She was hiding under the sink from him, so we went through the whole "where is Addie?  I thought she was with you?" until out she popped with a Boo! and literally jumped into Matt's arms. Those two just stood there hugging with Addison's head on his shoulder for about 2 whole minutes. I swear I don't think my heart has ever felt more full.

I can't wait for this baby, the love we have for our children, it's an amazing, powerful thing.
