It's been a week since I've posted anything. We've been so busy with moving that I'm having a hard time sitting down to write stuff! We got an offer on our house (yay!) and will be moving in about three weeks (yay! and sad!). We're packing our pod full of art and furniture and Christmas decorations and books and stuff stuff stuff. I hope it all fits!

Anyhow, I'm going to post a few pictures since it's been a while since I've done that.


Maddie's first swimming lesson. June 2nd 2008

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

I wasn't aware of this, but I guess sometimes when babies pull themselves up to standing for the first time, they don't know how to get down. So Maddie's standing there giggling and singing and I'm snapping pictures.. and she's still standing there.. and still standing there.. and finally she gives me a little complaint whimper. So I pick her up and her poor little legs are trembling because her muscles are so tired!! Now she pulls herself up every chance she gets and has even begun walking herself along the couch a little bit. And twice yesterday she let go and was STANDING for just a second before she plopped on her bottom. I think we have an early walker on our hands!


Father's Day. June 15th 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 2008

The 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!

Maddie is getting so big! I love water babies! I taught water babies for a year while I was working at the Jewish Community Center (I'm not Jewish, just a great place to work) I am now teaching lessons to 30 swimmer ages 2 to 14 years old, and one Dad.

We will have to get together and meet once you are all moved out to CA!!
