One of her new favorite foods is now olives. And the other day, without any assistance or guidance, I turned around and she had three olives on her finger tips. She was so proud and I definitely wish I would have been quick enough to get a picture, but she quickly ate them up. What a silly girl?!?!
Her new favorite game is 1...2...3...JUMP! She just cracks up every time I do it. She makes every effort to do it herself, but never gets up off the ground. Hehehe. So cute!
We have really been missing Grandma Jill the last 3 weeks as she has been away doing WONDERFUL things in Armenia. I have made a point everyday to talk to Maddie about grandma and when I do talk to her she goes over and picks up a photo of grandma and grandpa off the bookshelf. Can't wait to welcome grandma back with open arms and lots and lots of hugs a kisses tomorrow!!!

We had to tame our "little beast." LOL. I always thought these harnesses were weird until I had a busy-body child myself. It was a saving grace. It allowed her to get down and run around without going too far. :-)
Maddie seemed to love EVERY minute of the day. She especially loved watching the playful river otters as they would swim around in the water and push off the glass cage. She would tap on the glass and loved following them from side to side...it was as if they were playing chase. So cute!
We weren't so sure how she would do in the 55 minute tram ride to scope out the other various animals. Much to our surprise, she did GREAT! She loved sticking her head out the tram and feeling the nice warm breeze. We saw so many different animals yesterday....elk, deer, moose, ram, mountain goats, coyotes, bears, etc...just to name a few. We will definitely be going there more often in the future as truly its just down the road from our house. What a fun place!

I figured it was about time that we start trying out some different hairdos with Maddie since her hair is beginning to get longer now. Pig tails were the first hairstyle we tried. Maddie sat pretty well in the high chair with Uncle Kevin and a few fishy crackers there to entertain her while her hair was being done. At first she wasn't so sure about the new "do" but didn't bother them after they were in for a few seconds.
She looks so big and grown up. Sigh! My baby girl isn't a baby anymore....she's a toddler!
