Happy INCREDIBLY Late Birthday Addilyn!

I am the slackerest slacker ever!  It's been WAAAAAAY too long since I've blogged.... why?  Because I'm lame... and busy...  and I have three kids... at home... because it's summer... so I'm busy... and we've been vacationing.... but mostly because I'm super lame.  Anyways, at the end of May we celebrated Addilyn's brithday.  We tried and tried to convince her not to have a birthday and to just stay 4 years old.  She wouldn't go for it.  I just want to freeze her just the way she is!  She's absolutely the most darling thing ever.  She has a heart of gold that is more tender than any other heart in the world.  She is completely crushed if she hurts anyone's feelings or gets in trouble (which is quite rare).  She adores her daddy and plays so very well with Carter and Preslee.  She's the perfect middle child.  She prays daily for Carter's cancer to go away and talks to Pres in a high pitched voice using words like "sweetie" and "darling".  We cannot get enough of her and pray each and every day that she will always be as compationate as she is right now.
