Moms, daughters, and avocados

Avocados were on sale this week and I LOVE avocados. Every time my mom and I get together, we make a special little open-faced sandwich: toast with mayo, sliced avocados and salt. Yum! And it always reminds me of my mom, which is fun. Anyway, so today I made myself such a sandwich and thought I would share the joy of avocados with MY daughter. Well, here's how it went....

Maybe we'll have to find a different tradition.

Hello Spokane!



Madeline and I took a quick trip up to Spokane to see family. We had a blast, but missed Matt of course. Madeline got to visit her great-grandparents, aunts, uncles cousins and of course play with Grandma Julie and Grandpa Steve. Thanks for the great trtip, Mom and Dad! We miss you all already!

I'm 7 months old!



My mom is cleaning the bathroom and she's making me have some tummy time. Since I can now roll over both ways I commandeered the laptop to write my first post!

I'm 7 months old this week! Can you believe what a big girl I am? I always keep my mom and dad laughing. I have figured out how to growl in this low hoarse voice and shriek in a very high pitched one! I like to sing when I hear music, when I'm tired and when I think no one is listening, It's pretty easy to get a laugh out of me since I'm an easy going girl. The only time I get grumpy is when I'm really tired. Can you blame me?

I am fascinated with my hands, so I like to look at them and use them to grab EVERYTHING, especially hair. I love to read books. My favorite is about farm animals and I always giggle at the page with the fuzzy duck that says "Quack Quack".

I prefer sitting now to laying down. When I'm on my back I do sit ups trying to get back up. I also like practicing standing while holding on to things. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my fisher price jumperoo. I've figured out how to jump on one foot and swivel around to play with all the toys.

I'm a little bit picky when it comes to eating. I'll take green beans and peas over fruit any day!

I have big pretty eyes that are turning brown. Daddy is so happy about this. And everyone always comments on all my inquisitive facial expressions and my extremely long eyelashes. I'm loving this world that I get to explore and I especially love playing with my best buddy, Daddy!

Until next month....
Madeline
