Addie's motherly instinct has certainly kicked in over the past few months. She has become obsessed with her babydolls. She feeds them in her high chair, carries them around the house patting their butts and she takes them for stroller rides up and down the hallway. I love watching her act like a little mommy because I know she will be the same way with Blake when he gets here :-)
And like all mothers, Addie doesn't play favorites with her "babies". So when she adopted a little pumpkin from the farm yesterday, she made sure it got plenty of attention today. She carried it all over the house, patting it's bottom, and then took it into the kitchen for something to eat. She tried feeding it candy corn, but then decided she wasn't going to waste such a great treat and shoved it in her mouth instead.
A stroller ride was next on the list, but it was quite a challenge getting it strapped in. There was a tantrum and tears until mommy came to the rescue.
Ta Da! After a little frustration tantrum (which resulted in those puffy eyes) and another piece of candy corn...we were off an running.
I can't say I blame the girl for getting frustrated. She just wanted to take her pumpkin baby on a walk! I know I have had many fights with my stroller that resulted in tears in the mall parking lot when I couldn't get it to open or shut. And luckily, my mommy was there to give me a latte to make it all better. Ha!
