Predictions...

The girls are busy little things, with a lot to say and a lot to do! Addy officially rolls from one end of the room to the other with very little interference. Lilly, still isn't rolling, but she is sitting on her own for long periods of time. They are both eating pretty well. We went to church this morning and both were making friends with smiles and squeaks and squeals.

Everyone enjoys making predictions about them. A few weeks back, after Grandma & Grandpa Ash babysat for a couple hours, Dave decided that he had gotten them all figured out. He said that Lilly was going to be Student Body President and Validictorian and Addy, well, Addy was going to drive a Harley. Jeremy has recently predicted that Addy might be our athlete--golf, swimming, gymnastics, softball, soccer, he isn't really sure which, but she'll be definately be athletic. As for Lilly, she's already got him wrapped around her finger, so she'll be one who can manipulate anyone or any situation to get her way. He's already worried about "believing" every word that comes out of her mouth.

What does mom think? I think they are going to be smart and I can already tell they are going to be beautiful girls. But their personalities are dramatically different. Addy will probably be hyperactive, but when she crashes, she crashes hard. She was rolling all over the house Saturday morning, but went down for a nap and slept for 4 hours! Lilly has gotten smart to the fact that the earlier she wakes up the more one-on-one time she has with mom & dad, so she might be our early riser down the road. She's also pretty dramatic, so theater might be in her future.

So, why the Beatles shirts--well the Ash side of the family are die hard fans and picked the shirts up in Vegas a few weeks ago and my parents are in England this week, so consider it a hometown tribute...

I predict my nieces will be brilliant:) All that rolling - it is no wonder that Addy is so tired:) Lil is so smart to figure out that she needs to wake up early to have her mom and dad all to herself:) I predict that they will be the best-dressed girls in school:)

I predict that one day they will look at their baby pictures and ask their father why he insisted on forcing them to incessently wear Colts jerseys!

Love the shirts! Did the Ash's go to the Beatles Love show in Vegas? That was the best show I have ever seen! I have a similar t-shirt from my experience there. Can't wait to see which of you is closer in your predictions :)
