We often call Wilma our little Meerkat. When she begs for food she looks just like one--sitting on her hind, firm as a statue, tiny head and fat, round body. Apparently, Addie thinks the same. Without any prompting from us she called the meerkats "Wilma" at the zoo, adding a couple "woofs" for good measure. And none of the other animals received the Wilma title. One smart cookie!
On another note, you can hear me asking Tim to watch Addie when she steps up on a small stoop. Of course, I picture her losing her balance and falling backward on her head. Watching the video back makes me laugh because I took a Buzzfeed poll this week (that was circulating facebook) which defines your parenting style. A couple of my friends who took the test posted their new title: effortlessly cool. I did not, however, receive this nice label. I got "the helicopter." Haha, sorry Addie =).
