• 8 months old

    We haven’t posted anything for about 2 months now and Madeleine has changed so much in just that short time. She now knows how to stand on her own (holding onto something)

    , clap her hands, scoot around (mostly backwards) and eat finger foods by herself. She went on her first picnic last weekend

    . She has been a busy girl lately and is still growing by leaps and bounds. We’ve been enjoying the warmer weather and spending more time outside so Maddy has now also been in a swimming pool for the first timeimg_2293 and played with bubblesimg_2057. She has started to really talk to us and, although most of it is babbling, we’ve begun to pick out a few words that she imitates. She says “momma” and “dadda” very clearly and has started to say “baba” for “bottle” and “boo” for “book” occasionally. We’re both looking forward to and sort of dreading the day she begins to really crawl around, and that day is coming soon! Madeleine has recently started to show an interest in animals and especially loves Grandma and Grandpa’s dogs and cats. She is getting such a personality and has definite preferences now for certain foods, toys, books, etc. Parenting is getting more fun and more challenging every day now.  This last picture is just of Maddy sleeping but it was too cute to leave out:
