Fun with Addison at the Pet Store

Last week, one of Avery's very first friends was in town, Addison. She was in town with her mommy, Dewana. We wanted the girls to meet up before Addy and her mommy headed out to eat with a friend. It is wayyy too hot for the park in the afternoon right now, so I suggested a local pet store. Weird, I know, but Avery loves it there! They ended up having a pretty good time running around and looking at all the animals, although they were a little shy with each other. Addison was born three months after Avery, but they are basically at the same level with height, weight and developmentally (since Avery measured 3 months early when she was born). Addy is a little bit chunkier and Avery is a little bit taller.

Looking at the birds...
...and the fish...

I love how she points at everything now...accomplishing developmental goals makes me smile :)
Now, if I can just get her to stack those blocks! (spoken like a true preemie mom, huh!)
I don't think Addison was ready to go!
Avery would've taken this one home if I'd let her!
They were so shy with each other!

Aww, they were cute together. My dh took all the kids on a monthly date from the time they were very small and the fish store and pet store were favorite destinations, of course ice cream always came afterwards.

My kids always loved the pet store, especially Shelbi. Well, she still does and still begs for a puppy and a kitten, but at least she's stopped asking for a baby brother. LOL

I don't know why I put kitten--- it's a hamster she's hounded me for. =)
