How to Keep Adelynn Quiet

The first option is to continually hand her trash. She loves to race over and throw it away.
When you run out of trash, take off her teething necklace. Open, close, open, close, for all of relief society!

Puddles, Why Not?

There are some pretty big puddles at Costco ... Audrey was pretty desperate to jump in. Since the girls happened to have their rain boots in the car, I figured, why not? Besides, they definitely brightened the mood of everyone who walked past.

Hours of fun, my friends - hours! You might think Adelynn is too small to play, but you'd be wrong. She can stack them and build with them.
She may be a little obsessed...
For example - what appears, on the surface, to be an adorable, hooded baby watching a show is, in fact, a sneaky little midget, watching a show, while hiding a stack of Playmags from her sister.
I need to get some pictures of Aaron's creations, but Audrey is getting better and better as well!

A Call to a Crush

My kids absolutely adore my brother Tom. He and his buddy Kito came out to visit earlier this year and Audrey may or may not have a crush on Kito ... some evidence: she prays for him in every prayer, twice, she pretends to talk to him on the phone, as in every time she pretends to talk on the phone, she pretends to read stories to him ...  The list goes on and on. She loves both Kito and Tom, don't get me wrong, buuuuut, trust me, Kito is special to her
Pretty cute.

"Love You"

One is in his room and I am no longer loved, one is in the library and we are no longer best friends, and moments ago, one was having a dramatic, ear-shattering tantrum because I wouldn't let her take the dirty diaper out of the trash to play with. But then I was followed by an angel who very recently just received her wings, chanting: "love you." It does get better, thank goodness!

Powdered Sugar for Lunch?

Nevermind that the bag is 7lbs ... when Adelynn makes up her mind about what we should have for lunch, she'll do everything she can to make it happen!

Adelynn's ABCs

I could very well be the only person who finds this funny, but still ...

Earlier tonight, I sat with Adelynn and sang the ABCs to her - and she decided she wanted to try it too! I gabbed my phone to see if she'd do it again and she totally did! This girl cracks me up.

Her "ta-da" makes me giggle every time!

Last one, I promise. She wanted to see, so we switched to selfie mode - she became distracted by her hand, lol. At the end, she starts singing "Let it Go."  Anything to be like big sister.
