I promise, when she turns 2 I’ll stop counting the months and finally make the switch over to years. Anyone know why us moms do that?
My little darling.
As much as I joke about her being a wild and uncontrollable hellion, she really is well behaved and good-natured the majority of the time. Justin and I have so much fun with this little girl and I want to make sure you’re all convinced of that by the end of this post. I don’t want to scare anyone out of having children, haha!
She was a flower girl in my sister-in law’s wedding this past weekend and umm, I never really realized how big of a ham she was until that day, being around all those strangers. It’s slightly ridiculous.
Maddie is a people-person. I realize how much of a stupid-parent thing that is to say, as she’s not even two years old, but she truly is. I’ve been around kids who don’t pay anyone but their mothers an ounce of attention, and you end up having to bend over backwards to even get them to crack a smile. I’m always like, “What did I do wrong, kid? ACCEPT MEEEEE!” Maddie’s just not that way. Cheesy grins and friendly waves are handed out to everyone, whether they’re paying attention to her or not.
(This is a HUGE sigh of relief for me because I was fully convinced I was going to be cursed with a bratty child, especially after all the stunts I pulled when I was younger. Sorry Dad.)
She talks A LOT. I really need to show you guys a video of all the hilarious things she says. Almost everything starts with “oooh…”.
Maddie, what do you want to drink?
Maddie, what’s in Mommy’s tummy?
Maddie, where’s Daddy?
I’m interested and only slightly terrified to see how she reacts when her younger brother or sister makes their debut. Her world is going to be turned upside down, but I’m hoping she’s going to continue being her charming little self. I’m not too worried about it, really. I wouldn’t worry about it. Don’t worry about it. I’m not worried at all.
Ooooh, save me.
