Who's who?

Time to play a little who's who guessing game. :) We've been thinking all along that our two girls look nothing alike but the other day when we were looking at old pictures, we realized when Addy was Elsie's age, they look very similar. So. . .

You guess who is who and the answers are at the bottom. Have fun!

Drum roll please. . .

Elsie: Pictures 1, 4, 5

So they're not twins, for sure, but kind of fun that they may actually look like sisters after all!

21 Months and 7 weeks!

We can hardly believe it but Addy is 21 months old already! She's quite a busy bee these days picking up all sorts of words and trying new things all the time. It amazes me the things she says. (and repeats! oops!) She is saying a lot of simple sentences and getting really good at using polite manners. . . well, sometimes. :) We're up to our eyeballs trying to train her and while some days it feels like a losing battle, she is growing and learning. Whew, toddlers!

Here's Addy reading her Bible to her penguin. She loves reading and anytime she can read to someone, she's much happier. She loves to talk about the stories in her Bible and probably about 70% of what she says is English. :) Sometimes we just smile and nod.

The last few weeks have been a lot less eventful since our busy first month with Elsie. I caught a cold from Addy and was sick for 2 weeks (it's actually still holding on a little!) and then Brad caught the cold. It was a bad one and kept us from taking our road trip to NM and CO. So we've been trying to recover and trying to get some sleep!

The transition to two girls is going pretty well. For anyone who's done it, you know it's tricky, but luckily Addy loves her baby sister. She calls her Mee Mee or Elsie and always wants to give her hugs and kisses. Addy is even getting used to me having to hold Elsie but sometimes she takes advantage of my hands being full to try to get away with something she knows she shouldn't. She's a smart one. :)

This picture is of Elsie Mae this morning. She was in such a good mood after her bath and was talking up a storm, kicking her legs and smiling a lot. She's so darn cute! I'm sure her mood was the result of going 7 hours between feedings the last few nights. Way to go Elsie, keep up the good work!
