But Maddie had a great time playing with all of us! Jenny and Jeff have some cubes that made a very fun toy, and Maddie was sure to bring her own wooden spoon (though I think Jenny and Jeff would have shared one, I'm just not sure it would be the same as her own).
We went shopping in Brooklyn and got Maddie a cute ball that looks like a lady bug and her first baby doll...who turned out to be an anatomically correct little boy. Excellent.
We had a great Thanksgiving meal with amazing food (and oh so much of it!) - but we were so focused on eating that we didn't snap any pictures. Nom nom nom. Maddie ate from her Totseat a lot, though!
The day after Thanksgiving we played a lot of Wii (wheeeee!) and Dakota traded Maddie for a Wii remote. Jenny was pretty sure she got the better end of the deal. When not Wii'ing, there was a lot of general lazing about.
When that got boring (for Maddie, not for us) we took her on a chilly walk to the park where she met her first swing. They got along famously!
On the way home, we hit a bit of traffic.
We got to meet those parked in the cars around us, and we had the pleasure of entertaining Miss Madeleine for two hours on the New Jersey Turnpike. Good thing we left on Saturday to avoid the traffic! I got bored and was playing with the camera...until it died.
All in all, it was a pretty wonderful Thanksgiving! We hope yours was fabulous, too!
