She already swims under water and today she got her first ribbon for doing such a good job! She is the youngest one in the class. Maddie is 7 months old and the next oldest is 14 months. John stood Maddie up next to that little girl and they are the same height.. haha I am going to have children taller than me I imagine!
Maddie standing up by herself for the very first time! June 7th 2008
John said he felt honored to be able to call himself a father. Maddie learned how to say Da-da on the 11th after I sat next to her in the car going somewhere and "talking" back and forth with her. I just repeated the sound to her.. now she says it all the time! The rest of that first day though all we heard all day long was DADADADADADADA at the top of her lungs! She was so proud of her new sound!
Maddie's first wedding. June 13th 2008The lovely couple (our lovely neighbors) have been boyfriend and girlfriend for 19 years. They got married finally on Friday the 13th.. I guess they figured any bad luck has surely happened by now! Yay for them! Oh, Madeline belched loudly right at the beginning of the ceremony. Such a classy girl!
Here are some more random pictures that I've taken the past few weeks for you to enjoy!
