So, Madie has developed this thing about not wearing shirts. She has learned how to take her shirts (and unfortunately diapers, too) off, so I will discover a random naked baby at times. Here she is caught in the act.
And I finally know without a doubt she is my child- Madie LOVES BBQ!
And a group shot, all of us in our glorious gluttony! Pat's Pig in Your Face BBQ is *Almost* as good as anything you can get in Texas!
I didn't realize when we brought Madie home from the hospital, we were actually raising a little monkey. We have a wild child on our hands- she has started climbing on ANYTHING! Here she is getting up on the kitchen table, but she somewhat got caged in because we pushed the chairs in. That used to deter her, but not anymore, now she pulls the chairs out to then climb.
This is just too cute to not post! Madie is actually keeping her sunglasses on now days, and hats too! I've taught her well! Cody told me when I put her in this outfit that it is his new favorite Madie outfit.And last but not least, we a getting our practice in for Fall semester. With gas prices (gas in Utah is still over $4/gallon) Madie and I are riding TRAX to the U in Fall. We did a little practice run on Friday to go turn in my last final. It was an adventure. I got a lecture from a weird guy at Gallivan Plaza about having my child out in the heat, and I felt like telling him "Well, if you don't like me having my child in the sun, get the train here faster!"
Here Madie is pointing out all the interesting things along the ride! (Those of you familiar with TRAX know that I just lied, so I'm sorry. There really isn't anything interesting- well, that I want to teach my one year old about. We will save the ghettos and homeless people lecture for when she is two!)
All in all, summer has been great, and it is shaping up to just get even better. We still have some splash pooling to do as well, so if anyone wants to join, we have a few guest passes left!
