We have decided that Addison will be our subdivision's first official dog walker. She loves trying to walk dogs but most are too large and strong for her to control. Well, Addison has recently met several yorkies in our neighborhood that have enabled her to hone her dog-walking skills. She can really handle yorkies because they're so small and light. A young couple was with their yorkie "Polo" in our neighborhood park and Addison insisted on walking him. It's gotten to the point that if anyone with a dog stops and talks with us, Addison will reach for the dog's leash as if it's her job to walk it. Polo’s owners took these pictures with their cell phone and sent them to us. We just happen to live in a subdivision where dogs are plentiful and very pampered. In fact, the dogs in our neighborhood have their own doggie park! So forget the lemon-aide stand, Miss Addison has found her toddler - age calling. We're pretty impressed with her finesse and think she’s just the cutest little dog walker we’ve ever seen :-)

Gee, I haven't posted in months. I started out the year with such determination to post at least monthly. What can I say? Trying to keep a blog going while parenting has been a challenge for me. I'm surprise that anyone still checks in from time to time to see if I've posted anything. Well I thought I could at least post some pics from Addison's recent trip to Zoo Atlanta. As you will see in the 1st photo, Addison was less than thrilled to be there. Just look at her expression in the 1st photo when she realized that she wouldn't be allowed to run freely through the zoo for the next couple of hours. Or maybe she was thinking, "Mommy thinks I look adorable in this get-up but I think I look ridiculous!" Although the pictures don't show it, Addison soon realized that spending the day at the zoo was actually fun. Now if I can just get her to smile for the camera:-) Enjoy the pictures!
