We Can Walk!

It has been quite a while since we posted last (as I am told by Holly and Kathy) but we thought we had to post that we took our first steps yesterday- on Mothers Day no less. It was the best Mothers day present! Maddy and Dad also made me a delicious mothers day brunch complete with french toast, breakfast casserole, corn beef hash (with homemade corn beef), smoked salmon bagels and mimosas- yum!

Here is a link to the video of Maddy's first steps (it is the video near the bottom):

Maddy also got a new tub toy this weekend- an inflatable duck to bathe in. We have graduated Maddy from bathing with me to taking a bath by herself. This is much more helpful to me since Patrick left for Belgium yesterday and I have to give the slippery monkey a bath by myself now. Anyways, Madelyn thinks that her duck is great. She doesnt have to be held and she can peruse all of her favorite tub books in a nice and squishy tub (much more comfy than the big tub). Here are a few photos:
Here are a few other recent pictures of what we have been up to:


We went to the fire department to see Uncle Jeffrey-

Our new favorite toy, the diaper wipes box-

Watching Saturday morning cartoons with Daddy-
Grandma and Grandpa and Patrick's aunt Jean came to visit-

We got a new stuffed kitty (Boots) who is our favorite (next to Messy Piggy of course)-

And we did lots of playing with Maddy's best friends, Mia and Nick (we like to poke Nick's ears and steal his chair)-

That's the highlights of what we have been up to!

Talk to you soon- enjoy the warm weather!
Kristin and Madelyn
