Happy Birthday Addison!

The first picture in the hospital! I was just starting the induction.
There you are!!! Addison Ray Reynolds
You were covered in poop and not a happy camper, but you were so healthy and we were so happy to finally meet you!

Well Addison turned 2 on May 7. We have begged her to slow down, just a little, but it has been a "no go"! She has zoomed right up to this second birthday.
We have enjoyed every moment with our sweet Addison.  From the first nights home when Daddy would do his little bouncing dance to get you to sleep.  The first time I held you in my arms.  The first time you smiled at us.  The first night that you slept in your crib and Mommy was a nervous wreck! Watching Baby Signing Time and seeing how smart you are to begin signing with us.  Watching you work so hard on crawling and walking, your gross motor skills were so tough on you! Watching you love on Finn and Mally and saying "dog" as your first word. The way you smell when you get out of the bath. Hearing you say, "Mama, Daddy, Come Here!" when you want us to get you out of your crib. The joy on your faee when you learn something new! The way your imagination works when you are playing.  And on and on and on....The morning you came into our world, we instantly fell in love!

You are growing beautifully and wonderfully. We are so in love with your silly smile, your chipped tooth, blonde curly hair, your large vocabulary, your pokerface dance.  My sweet girl, we hope one day we can describe the depth of love we have for you. We hope one day we can show you how proud we are of you and how proud we are to be your mommy and daddy.

We love you! Happy 2nd Birthday
Much Love, The Reynolds
