Rice Cereal!

Maddie has so much fun when she eats rice cereal, we just had to make a movie and share it with everyone!

She eats rice cereal every morning and loves it. She gets to start fruits and veggies in a couple of weeks - we can't wait to see her face when she tastes all these new foods for the first time. We can't believe she's almost 6 months old already! It has been so much fun getting to know her little personality and her preferences. She has adopted a favorite "blankie", figured out how to put her binky back in her mouth, and says "Mamamamama" at the top of her lungs. We feel so blessed to be her parents - she brings so much happiness into our lives!

Shoes, Talking, Rolling Over, ZooLights, & the Exersaucer!

Little Baby Nikes! Uncle Derrick bought Maddie her first pair of Nikes before she was even born. They are still a little too big, but she loves the bright colors. I think they are more fun to chew on than to wear. Maddie has found her voice in the past couple of weeks. She likes to join the conversation when everyone else is talking. She also likes to yell over the sound of the vacuum cleaner. She hasn't quite figured out volume control yet. This particular night, she got so excited when she was talking, she gave herself hiccups and spit up!

Maddie is getting pretty fast at rolling over. She travels across the room by pivoting and rolling and she is quick!

We went to see the ZooLights at the Phoenix Zoo this past weekend. It was cold so we all bundled up and had tons of fun!

Maddie's newest toy is her Exersaucer. She feels like such a big girl standing up and spinning around in it. I love that it's pink!
