Computer Time

"Watch how many words per minute I can type, Boppa."

This is something new, and I think it's so hilarious & so cute. It started when she just recently learned how to throw a ball (as evidenced by the video of her throwing the ball at little Enoch's head -- Maybe I should add it was a cloth ball -- I think she figured out throwing from watching him). So when I would throw the ball for her, I'd say "One, two, three, WEEEE!". She has found that to be quite amusing and started mimicking me. The result is a 13-month-old that counts to 3! Now to teach her all her presidents...

Dressing Up

Mystery Baby

Does this baby look familiar? I'll give you a clue -- it's not Madison.

My First Balloon

Play Date

This video cracks me up. Madison was so funny playing with Enoch (who is 3 months younger than her). I'm not sure if she could figure out what he was -- a toy or a pet.

Pregnant Snack

So... does a snack like this officially mean I'm pregnant?? ;-)
[Ritz crackers, cream cheese & pickles]

Autumn Walk

Well it's not Fall yet, but we're dressing for Fall lately when we take walks.

"It's Guts"

Madison seems to have a phrase of the week which, among her incoherent baby babble, is the dominant phrase she repeats. At one time it was "Degas" then "Dubai" (we said we were starting her early in classical and international studies). More recently it was "What's that?" pointing at everything, then "this, this" while pointing. Over the last few days her new phrase has been (or what sounds like) "it's guts" or sometimes "see? guts". You have to wonder in her little baby brain what in the world she's really trying to get across. :-)

Little Person Chatter

Madison is quite the little talker. She sounds like she has her only language - you could swear she knows just what she's trying to say, though we don't have a clue. This is just a little snippet of her chatter. I taped her on the video camera first & she was babbling quite a bit. But since I don't know how to get the video from that camera to the computer, I then pulled out the digital camera & did a little taping on it... but by then she was more interested in trying to get lunch than talk more.
