This Addie girl of mine sure is a special little girl. She’s so full of love and happiness it’s hard not to have at least some of that sunshine rub off on everyone else in the house. I’ve watched her as she’s turned into one of the best big sisters out there as she’s watched and cared for her little sister. Those two girls are completely inseparable. Whenever they are apart they constantly ask about each other.
The other day Addie told me she wanted to become the best big sister in the world and to excel in loving other people and being kind. As I sat there and listened to the things that were coming out of Addie’s mouth, I couldn’t help but wonder what I had done earlier in this life to deserve the right to be the father of such a wonderful person.
Vivi grew quite a bit in 2012 and it was pretty noticeable in her pictures. She entered 2012 as a baby and exited 2012 as a full-blown toddler with teeth and nobby knees. She rolled her way into 2012 and walked her way right out of 2012. There’s no question the transition from a baby to a toddler is pretty significant, but when I look back at all the photos that were taken in 2012 I can’t help but think that Addie may have changed even more than Vivi.
Here are my 20 favorite photos of Addie from 2012:
