Update #2

Oh, I am so bad at this!!! Anyway, Sorry I have not posted any pics this week. We are just getting settled back in. Daniel and I have been working on painting the hallway, master, and the bathrooms. Along with me being out of town last weekend and now this weekend too! We are going to Atlanta for Traci and Martin's party. Hopefully we'll make it back with some cute pictures and plenty to share about!
As for Madeleine, we are working on getting rid of the bottle. Surprisingly she is doing well. I am only putting water in it and it seems that all she wants now is to hold it. I don't care as long as her teeth are not rotting from the milk. My only concern now is how do I make sure she get's enough milk. She's not drinking it from her sippy. Any suggestions?

Lunch with Daddy and Madeleine's hair cut!

Today we met Daniel for lunch at Chappy's. Taking Madeleine out to eat is a rarity since her behavior is not predictable right now. She did excellent today! She enjoyed the fish tank, coloring, and drinking out of a big girl cup with a straw! Kids eat free so this a fine discovery for us! Madeleine had the chicken fingers, chips, our french fries, animal cookies, and pickles. mmm mmm! We'll be back soon!

We got to sit next to the fish tank! Madeleine loved it!

Madeleine's first official hair cut! She went with me to see Donna (my hair stylist) on Thursday afternoon. Donna is now cutting three generations of our families hair! Jeanne has been going to Donna for 30 years and Megan has been since she was Madeleine's age. I forgot my camera but the scene was way too chaotic to take pictures anyway. Donna managed to do a fabulous job despite Madeleine's displeasure.

Mom's Birthday

Mom, Lacey, Kason and Bailey came over for dinner to celebrate Mom's birthday. The kids had a great time playing with one another. Even Bailey had fun!! She loved chewing on Madeleine's toys :)

Madeleine, Daniel, and Kason playing horsey and "The Cave". The cave is one of Madeleine's favorite games that she and Daniel play. They just put a blanket over them and whisper. Madeleine had recently started attacking in the cave!! Mostly with kisses :) My favorite!

The 4th of July

We had a relaxing weekend and it was nice to not be out of town for once! We spent most of our time in the pool and the yard. Madeleine's latest favorite activity is to go on walks. And I don't mean pushing her in the stroller. SHE goes on walks! We take long strolls through the neighborhood (and into peoples yards) every day now looking for any animals or bugs we can find. She's really into cats these days. But we are NOT getting one. Sorry Madeleine :)
Madeleine also likes cars, trains, dinosaurs, and basically "boy" toys! I was not too worried about it since this is really because we have almost all boy cousins and those are the toys we have to play with. Daniel insisted that is was time for some girl things! So we got her a new doll house and she loves it!! I don't know what we would do without it. It has already bought us plenty of play time!
Madeleine definitely has developed her sweet tooth! We now ask for treats, cake, and cookies! It has become a day long battle to keep the sugar monster at bay!

Madeleine's new doll house! Thank you daddy!

Madeleine loved being sprayed with the water hose so we finally got a sprinkler for her!!! She yells, it's raining, when she runs through it!
