Don’t call us, we’ll call you

I’ve been a very bad blogger lately . . .

Especially when it comes to chronicling Addison’s latest and greatest.  Hopefully, that will all change in the near future since I defend at 3:00 PM.  TOMORROW!  YAHOO!

But in the meantime, I had to note Addison’s newest skill.  This morning we were playing with the talking piggy bank that her honorary uncle Brandon sent for her first birthday.  She put one coin in and the piggy said, “One.”  To which she replied, “Two.”  I did a double take . . . did she just count?  So I held up a coin and said, “One.”  And Addison pointed at another coin and said, “Two.”  My first reaction was, “DANG!  My baby just COUNTED!!”  Which was quickly followed by a much more subdued, “Dang, my baby just counted.”  Because, of course, babies can’t count so it seems that my baby isn’t a baby at all anymore.  Boo.

But she kept counting throughout the day so indeed, at least for today, she can count to two.  And we owe it all to Brandon and the talking piggy bank!



  1. First of all, yay for defending! This calls for a celebration, hopefully involving food. Second, the fiscal lover in me looooves the piggy bank idea! How cute

    I’ll have to follow in Emily’s footsteps and congratulate you on defending (before letting you know that I can’t stop smiling after reading this post)! Way to go!

    Thanks so much for the wonderful card and even more wonderful pictures.

  3. Good luck in defending. And I’m sure you’ll like your little girl just as much as you like your little baby. 🙂

  4. Wow!!! Addison is growing even smarter!!! Do you think that she is so precocious about counting money because her mom is so interested in financial matters?
