Today our little lady turned 11 months old. It's all a little bittersweet every time I post these monthly blogs, as I just can't believe how fast she is growing. Little miss Maddie is such a funny little thing. Her personality just cracks me up. It's crazy to see how much her personality is really showing, changing, and developing. She continues to get around VERY, VERY well. She is a serious speed racer when it comes to crawling and walking while pushing her push-toys. She has attempted at taking a few steps, but maxing out on 3 steps before she plops to the ground. I think she realizes that she can get from here to there much faster by just crawling. LOL.
She is a very social little girl, waving at every person she sees whether it be at the grocery store or out in the front yard playing. One of her newer things lately is pointing. She points at objects with the cutest little look on her face. It's as if she's saying "Look at that mommy," or "What's that?"
She has definitely been keeping us on our toes, as she gets into EVERYTHING she really shouldn't be getting in to. If we forget to close the bathroom door she quickly crawls in there ans starts playing in the toilet water! I know....just lovely. If we forget to close the laundry room door then next thing we know she is tasting AJs food. Sigh. And just today, while playing in the computer room while mommy was on the computer, she took a basket off the shelf, turned it upside down and stood up on it to reach something on top of the computer desk. What a little stinker.....and DAREDEVIL!
Maddie still continues to LOVE playing outside, but two of her most favorite activities is playing chase and climbing the stairs. If she seems the baby gate open at the bottom of the stairs she quickly crawls over there and peeks over at us with this look on her face. It's as if she's saying "come and get me!!!!" Upon doing this, she quickly begins climbing the stairs - with us right behind her of course - peeking over her shoulder every few stairs to be sure we are still "chasing" her. She is such a crack up. It's amazing how much she changes on a daily basis. What a fun and hilarious little girl we have.
Maddie and the birthday boy. Maddie has a bit of a weird look on her face. Apparently the sun was just a little bright.

Madison was definitely too interested in everything else that was going on to want to pose for a family picture. :-)
John stuck her toes in the water and she really was quite amused. She was reaching for the water and the rocks when a wave came splashing up in her face. She didn't seem to mind the remnants of rocks that remained on her face after the big splash. She enjoyed watching her daddy and uncle throw rocks into the water and wanted to take a try at throwing them too. She made many attempts at sneaking a number of rocks into her mouth but was quickly stopped by grandma and mommy. She even felt the need to try crawling on the very rocky beach. It seemed as though she really enjoyed this little outing. We can't wait to spend more time on the beach and maybe a more sandy one next time....and with Grandpa Randy! GET WELL SOON GRANDPA!
