all that...

Miss independent…not sure why I was so hung up on the “what if” Maddie is not independent…because at the ripe age of 2 years old…there is no doubt Maddie will do what Maddie wants to do…when she wants to do it…I am saying good bye to the lovely little girl that was sweet, nice and snuggly and getting to know the rambunctious little girl that thinks NOTHING applies to her…"no” is a foreign word or she simply does not think it is in her best interest…Maddie is the kid that will do anything and everything for  a reaction…head first down the water side…ok…walking and not wanting to hold hands to be safe…not ok…climbing on the tables and counter tops and using stools and chairs and any means necessary to make sure she gets where she needs to go…because brother does it -it must be ok! Maddie likes to turn away when trying to explain why we do not tackle, hit, take, or push…she does not like to be told what to do or even a suggestion of how to be nice…Maddie really likes the idea that she is the ruler of the house…when she is hurt every family member must stop and pay tribute to the hurt and brother and daddy must kiss it…mommy is there to hold her and take her where she grunts, screams, and points to…but all I can do is love, laugh and think wow am I lucky to have a little girl with this much spunk and this much life in her…Maddie loves to experience everything and be left out of nothing…the other day at putt putt golf she had her own golf ball and putter and tried her best on every hole…I have never met another child that was so ready to learn life…
this is what happens when Maddie does NOT get her way...

yep I am BIG

this is how you do it brother

  6. Boy do I know how you feel...her and Sutter have very similar personalities! Sutter's new thing is to require or demand "hugs and kisses" from everyone who's home when he falls or hurts himself...as soon as everyone has paid attention to him he's suddenly "fine"! Although he knows what "no" means he could careless that were saying it to him. Gotta love their strong willed personalities....I keep reminding myself it will come in handy one day! :)

  8. Love Maddie, she is such a doll! She and Claire would get along wonderfully. She only wants to do things her way, and without help, of course! Her PT says she is one of the most resistant kids ever. I keep telling myself independence is good. :)
