Exciting Events: As we settled down from Christmas and New Year’s, we settled into the deep freeze that took over this winter. Brrr! We got out of the house and went to a chocolate festival that benefitted the Make a Wish Foundation, took a weekend trip to Knoxville, and celebrated Maddie’s first Valentine’s Day. Maddie and mommy baked a cake for Valentine’s day and daddy may or may not have let Maddie have a tiny little bit! She’s tried quite a few other foods but still prefers her milk. Along with avocado, banana, and applesauce, we have tried… peas, green beans, sweet potatoes, pears, oatmeal.. and I’m sure I’m forgetting something in there. She pretty much has decided she hates bananas but pears are where its at! She also loooooves sweet potato!
What She Does: Maddie is still working on becoming mobile. She will lean forward while sitting and stretch as far as her little body allows but her big noggin tends to pull her over before she can get anywhere. She will roll and pull herself around her play quilt to get to her favorite toys and sometimes pulls herself up onto her knees but we’ve seen no actual crawling movement yet. She can also pull herself up to a half standing position if you place something like a remote or cell phone just out of her reach! She is definitely strong enough to hold herself up in a standing position and takes steps when holding on to your hands. She still has a silly toothless grin but she faked us out with a tiny white bump that lasted about a day! She still likes to teethe on anything she can put in her mouth but actually takes drinks from her sippy cup now.
