20 months

It's almost February, and Adelyn is 20 months old. She's her own little person, and she's so much fun! She repeats everything you say, so we better watch out for that! Recently she started calling Seth his first name. She'll say anything you tell her to! So far, she has only climbed out of her crib one time (which resulted in a bloody lip, but no tears). We were already planning on transitioning her to a toddler bed sometime in February (and then upstairs to her "big girl" bedroom sometime in April to get ready for the new baby). I guess that's our next steps. I am NOT looking forward to that. 1. It means she's growing up 2. I like her being confined to the crib! Adelyn is still into everything, as all toddlers are. I got to make my first Poison Control phone call last week. I gave Peri her medicine. I swear she swallowed it- I even gave her a treat afterwards, which she also swallowed. Adelyn came up to me a minute later with blue chalky stuff covering her tongue and a look and sound of disgust. I quickly rinsed her mouth out and made the call. They said since it was just an antibiotic, the worst that could happen would be an allergic reaction. Luckily, that didn't even happen. The scary thing was, I was there the entire time! You can never be too careful with these kiddos!

My best friend, Heather, recently moved from Raleigh and she lived with us for three weeks while she was looking for a new place. The day after she came, we had another big snow (almost 6"- big snow for GA). This was not the fun kind of snow. At first it was too dry to stick together and then it turned to ice, so we never made a snow man. Adelyn was a much better sport this time. She wore her boots, hat, and gloves without a fuss. We tied up the sled to the back of the gator and Seth, Heather, and I pulled each other up and down Fast Lane. Adelyn was just happy to ride in the gator (she loves that thing!). Other than that, we were trapped inside for several days. I was so glad Heather was off of work too. I'm ready for summer!!

As usual, we have been on a few trips. We went to my parents' house MLK weekend. We celebrated my grandmother's 96th birthday in Hickory. The next day, we celebrated Christmas (just a tad late) with my dad's side of the family. Both events were really fun! I love getting together with family, especially as our families continue to grow. It's so neat to watch the youngest generation interact. This past weekend, we went to Seth's first race in Daytona. This year, Seth is still with Grand Am Continental Tire, but he is in the GS (faster) class, rather than the ST class. Last season, Bimmerworld had two cars in ST. This season, they have added two more cars to GS (a total of four!). Seth and James (the team owner) are teammates. They finished 16th. I think Seth was a little disappointed, but I'm sure the next races will only get better! Emily and Thomas also came to this race, so Adelyn had some playmates. She LOVES cheering for her daddy! She pumps her little fist in the air and says, "Go Daddy, go!!!". She got to sit in the new car and when Seth turned on the engine and revved it up, she grinned ear to ear. She's definitely her father's child.

We had a New Year's Eve Party. We told guests they could bring their children...we ended up having 13 kids over! It was really fun! Laura and Amy spent then night and here are the kids on New Years Day!

Amy and I took CeCe and Adelyn to Sesame Street Live in Chattanooga! The girls LOVED it! 

Snow day! 

We took turns driving the gator and pulling the sled up and down Fast Lane. Adelyn loves to go for a ride (in the tractor, as she calls it)

Adelyn taking a nap during Seth's race. It was pretty hot in the cab, so I stripped her down the her dipaer. 

Thomas and Emily playing during the race. Adelyn is asleep in the truck in the background. When she woke up, she pulled back the curtain where the driver sleeps, climbed into the driver's seat, and waved. It was so funny- Adelyn in her diaper looking out the window like, "Where am I??"
