It seems like yesterday! I rarely take my phone to bed with me and when I got up that morning, it was a while before I looked at my phone and saw that I had several messages from Chad . . telling me Addie was here!
And now . . she’s three.
She’s such a fun little girl to be around. I wish I could see her every day . . and though I don’t get to see her every day, Nicole is the best about making sure Addie and I chat just about every day.
As of today, her greatest accomplishment: Her grandpa (not Vince) has taught her to spit! Every time we video chat, she says “Mommy, bring Granny outside so she can watch me spit!” NO! Granny does not want to watch you spit! 🙂
This morning we video chatted and then I needed to ask Nicole something and I called her. Addie answered and she knew it was me because my picture came up on the phone and she was saying “I only like to video chat with Granny!” She didn’t want to talk to me on the phone. Times have certainly changed, haven’t they? I would have been so happy if my grandparents had a phone, and when they finally did get a phone (I was in high school), long distance charges were high so we could only talk quickly. Now, we can video chat all day if we want to.
The other day I was video chatting with Chad and Addie wanted to tell me something and she said “I want Granny!” Chad handed her the iPad and she did whatever she wanted to do and then she said to Chad . . you can have Granny back! I feel so special. 🙂
Anyway . . she’s now 3 years old and I know before I catch my breath, she’ll be 10 and then graduating from high school. The time passes way too quickly and I miss her (all of them) so much!
