Time flies- when you're havin' fun!

Now that Madeleine is 8 months, she seems to have taken to becoming quite the busy body. Madeleine is getting up and around these days. Last week she started to really crawl around and the next day she was pulling up on EVERYTHING. It seems like no matter how many things I pad or lock up, I still find Maddie into something. I find myself holding my breath every time she pulls up, as I feel sure this will be the time she busts a mouth or head open when she falls. We have been able to keep it safe so far, but boy does she keep us on our toes.

Maddie has three teeth now and is currently cutting two more. We are having fun learning new things everyday. She takes a music class on Thursdays and we have a playgroup on Tuesdays. We have met lots of new friends here on the island.

We look forward to the holidays this year and feel as Thanksgiving approaches, that we have so many things to be thankful for. We are mostly thankful that God has blessed us with such a wonderful child and such wonderful friends and relatives to share her with.

We hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving and we'll be back to update you on Maddies first Turkey Day!

Fall is here...Kind of

Madeleine will be 8 months old this weekend and we are trying to keep up with her. She has taken to "inching" and rolling everywhere. She really has become quite a determined little girl. I wanted to post some of the latest pics we've taken of her. We decided to skip the whole Halloween deal, mostly because it's not exactly safe to go wandering after dark here in Galveston. We did, however, take a picture of her in pumpkin attire to commemorate her 1st Halloween. Maddie and I have joined a mom and me group and we went on our first outing. The animal pictures are from the Bayou Wildlife Park where we met Jethro. Jethro is a rather unique character as he is a Zonkey, yes I said Zonkey. Apparently his mother was a Zebra and his father a donkey. We had a wonderful time as can be seen by Maddie's smile as we rode the tram around the park. We are excited about the upcoming holidays. We have even let Maddie begin to tear magazines to practice for opening presents. We hope that these words and pictures find all of you well and happy.
