Addie & Connor: Celebrating 3 Years of Love and Counting

The minute Addie laid eyes on her boyfriend Connor at just 3 months was love. I'm talking SERIOUS love. And the feeling was mutual. Connor couldn't get enough his chubby, bald, sweetheart...

I'm still not sure that we all approve of them taking a bath together so quickly...

But hey...when it's's love. You do what feels right.

Plus...these two had to take advantage of their time together because they were just learning how to be in a long distance relationship. It was hard that first year. They didn't get to see each other much but when they did, they were like two peas in a pod.

They always preferred making the most of their time by staying in and cooking together.

And rather than go on some big extravagant date, they opted for a quiet wagon ride through town.

No matter what it took, these two always made sure to see each other around the holidays.

By their second birthdays, these two were acting like an old married couple. They brushed their teeth together...

Had some quality time by the fireplace before bed...

And when Connor would try to make a move, Addie would just roll her eyes and tell him she was "tired". See...just like an old married couple.

But that doesn't mean these two didn't love each other. Addie just wanted to take it slow and hold hands...

And maybe even share a meal or two...

But in the end, snuggling was what they did best.

Are they not the cutest couple ever? How can you deny love like that.

Nowadays, you can't get Addie to keep her hands of her man...

But I don't think Connor minds much...

These two just know how to have fun and that's why they work.

I am happy to say that at 3 years old, these two are just as in love as ever. They didn't want to let their birthdays go by without having a special date, so we met at the Children's Museum this morning. See what I mean? Inseparable... least for the first five minutes. This museum had TONS of fun stuff for the kids to do. I guess I shouldn't be surprised that the two of them found the pizza making station right away.

I know that pizza was only made of fabric, felt and yarn...but doesn't it look delicious?

There was even an oven to "cook" them in. Addie couldn't figure out the button so her man helped. She loves him in his oven mitts :-)

After the kids were done making pizzas, it was time to play doctor.

I have to admit, I was a little disturbed by this...

A shot in the eye? Connor didn't think it was weird because he asked her to give his patient a shot in the eye too. Kids :-)

This museum had the cutest dentist chair and when I told Addie to hop up, Dr. Connor came right over and asked her to say, "Ahhh". So cute.

I swear Addie is going to turn out to be a doctor or nurse the way she plays and pretends with this stuff all the time. But while she is working as a doctor, Connor is going to be running his own bakery. This boy LOVES to bake.

Although, maybe Addie could help run his bake shop because in addition to needles and stethoscopes, the girl loves her some money.

And shopping.

But mostly taking people's money.

But that's okay because Connor accepts her for who she is. And in return, Addie humors him in everything he does. Like when he begged to ride in the tractor today, she dropped everything and hopped up with him.

Watching these two play together at this age is amazing, especially since their first date consisted of just rolling around under a play gym.

And now they are running, jumping and drawing us pictures :-)

I am so happy Tara and I were able to get the kids together today because they had a VERY romantic lunch. They fed each other food...

Made each other laugh...

And reminded each other why they make this long distance relationship work. For true love.

Obviously, these two love birds need to thank two very special ladies for making this relationship happen...

Without us...they would be probably be dating some losers. Ha! They are so lucky to have us!!

To Addie and Connor...Happy 3 Years of Love and Friendship. Here's to a hundred more :-)


  1. They are so stinkin' cute together! They're totally going to hate you for this some day... oh about ten years from now? But in twenty years from now when they're engaged they'll love it!!! ;-)

    Cute Mamas too!

  2. OK, I have tried to comment on this post twice, and it never sticks! This is why I don't blog, I guess!!
    Anyhoo, I've been trying to say that I think you've captured Addie and Connor's relationship perfectly! I loved them feeding each other yesterday. It was so adorable. And Connor kept asking me when we were going to Addie's house next!

  3. SO CUTE! Alexander has his best girl too so I know how that feeling of love fills your heart when you see soulmates together!
