Saturday, December 22, 2012
My goal for this day was to break me and Zach away from our routines and get more into the spirit of the season. By the time Friday had rolled around, both of us were super stressed and pent up. Spending a whole day focused on Addie was perfect for releasing the tense emotions.
Since we had woken up really early and still had some errands to take care of, we set out right after watching the sunrise to get it all done. By the time we got to Trader Joes, all the stores were filling up and I was super happy we did everything as early as possible.
Addie continued to not disappoint with her increasing cuteness and apparently her capacity to remember things. No sooner had Zach pulled into the parking lot did Addie recognize we were near Toys R Us and started pointing out the window, going "Toys! Toys!" I just put my head in my hands. Usually Zach will take her in there while I run over to the pet store to get supplies. They had just enough time to browse through a couple aisles and leave. Up until then Addie had not been super interested in it. Now it seems that this semi-monthly journey has become far more dangerous.
Since it was her special day, we did let her go in and pick something out. I had to do a bait and switch routine a couple times to get her latched onto something more age appropriate. Toy producers really know what they're doing, good grief.
Most of the day was spent with Addie dragging us onto the floor. Not so much to play with her, as she just wanted us down with her while she ran around and played near us. Zach and I ended up playing with her new soccer ball more than she did.
At the point dinner was almost done cooking, Addie decided to pull out her adorable arsenal. She took me into her bedroom and motioned to open up her clothes chest, which I did. As she was sorting through her clothes, I went back into the kitchen to clean up, where I turned around to find her presenting me with a dress and panties. So, I put them on her. Once dressed, she then took me to the front door and in her most angelic voice possible said, "Piazza!" She was letting us know she wanted pizza for dinner. We both absolutely cracked up as she continued trying to open the front door and pulling on us to go. Then she started pointing at Zach's keys, which I handed to her just to see what she would do. She gave them to Zach and started yanking on his arm, "Cart! Cart! Piazza!" Instead of the large, delicious cottage pie I made for dinner, we had pepperoni pizza. It was her special day.
