Big Sister Day!

In about 2 months my daughter’s life will drastically change.  Now, I know this is going to be good in the long run, but I feel that in the beginning Adlee’s world will completely be rocked.  So today we had a fun day just spending time and doing fun things with her.  We told her it was all about her being a big girl and being a big sister.  All 3 of us had a great day!

It started at build-a-bear. Adlee got to pick out and make her baby sister a bear…er, bunny!

She did great realizing it was for baby sister and not her, and then we got home and she wanted to nap with it.  We let her.  She doesn’t know it, but her little sister made her a cat, they can exchange at the hospital when they meet!!  Adlee got a cat because this entire pregnancy I have had a baby in my tummy and Adlee has had a kitty.  Really we have no idea where that came from, but she has even told my doctor about it!!

Our next stop was Chuck E. Cheese.  Adlee had never been so I thought it would be a fun trip.  Adlee had fun in the end, but was very overwhelmed for a while. 



She finally got into some of the games!





We then went home for a nap, although we didn’t quite make it.  Big sisters need naps too!


After naps we went to get snowcones, then to the playground.  To be honest we could have skipped all of the stuff that cost too much and played at the playground ALL day.  She loves playing!!

Big girl going to do it by herself!








We are proud of our big girl!!

Jerred did manage to steal the camera and get one picture of Adlee and me, however that will not be a published picture.  I will surely use it during teenage years to show both girls a) what I went through for them and b) a little visual during “the talk.”

The other night Jerred was giving Adlee a bath, that his is daddy duty! He yelled at me from the bathroom and said "I think Adlee is saying the pledge of allegiance!" I went in there and sure enough, she knows the whole thing. She says is at Amie's house every morning and it has stuck. Smarty-pants.
