Maddie's Cabinet

Hey Maddie, whatcha lookin' for?

Oooh, are you trying to share that bowl?

Well then. I see. (she's signing no)

Did you have fun?

Madeleine the Inventor


Maddie desperately wanted to find a way to hold onto her sippy cup and push her walker. Putting the cup down was NOT an option. Smart kid - she figured out a way to have her sippy and walk around, too!

She's not yet walking on her own - still likes the reassurance of having something there - the wall, a chair, the couch, a toy... When she finds herself standing without assistance, a look of sheer panic crosses her face as she grabs wildly for something to steady herself, even though she doesn't need it! Definitely not a daredevil, and we're ok with that!

Snow Days

You may have heard that we've gotten a little snow.  Just a bit...some 40" in the last couple of storms, but really, who's counting?  We spent the first storm snowed in with Dakota's parents and my brother, though we did get out right at the beginning for some cupcakes from the Baltimore Cupcake Company and some tasty food at the Abbey Burger Bistro.  Yum yum!

Quilt Me!


My first big sewing project was a quilt for Maddie.  She seems pleased!
