Maddie & I went to our first parade today - finally! The boy scouts paraded through the neighborhood and it was great. The weather was so fabulous. We parked at Cleary playground and watched from across the street. Maddie sat on the ground and paraders piled beads, toys, stuffed animals and candy on her lap and all around her. By the end of the parade, she was in a mountain of throws! Some other kids came along and we gave them all our beads. (Hooray!) We gave them most of the stuffed animals, too. It took a little while for Maddie to understand that she was supposed to let them keep the beads and animals, but once she got, she handed everything over. Everything, that is, except the moon pie. How did she know that was food? And bad for her food at that?
Of course, I had camera problems again - batteries not charged - so I borrowed a picture from our friend Corine. (thanks!) Picture Maddie's pink car instead of Ethan's blue one, and that's the parade.
I think my daughter is the most amazing, smartest, cutest baby ever. (Okay, I know I might be a little biased, but, really, she's slept all night since we brought her home from the hospital, she eats vegetables and chocolate and laughs almost all the time - could she be better?) I, however, am not always the most organized of moms. This blog is my way of recording the important - and not so important - details of her life. I only hope it shows the joy she brings me.
