Maddie's Top 21...

Maddie's top 21 loves of her life...at the ripe age of 2...but we know to be true!
1. PUDDLES...I have dubbed her the puddle princess
2. anything she can eat with a spoon or silver fork...preferably something that can dribble down the face and onto the belly...
3. her brother...where he goes...she goes...she will follow him to the end of the earth and back for good measure...
4. my drink...we share coffee every morning...I would be so against this if she was my first child...but she is not...so we sip it together every morning...and I love to watch her delighted facial expressions...totally selfish on my part...
5. going anywhere...Maddie loves her shoes...she will get them for you and take your hand to somewhere...she loves the wonderment of what is next!
6. her pink haired raggedy doll...she has slept with this doll since birth...I put it in her crib and she loves to eat the dolls hair...cuddle it...and it is what she plays with when she is waking up to start her day...
7. toilets...so enthralled with why everyone sits on them...why she is always shooed away from them and how when she pulls the lever it make a great swish...obsessed with putting the lid down...and attending every encounter we have with the great white throne...
8. Baby Einstein Old McDonald...Maddie will sit in her seat watch this video from start to finish...dance, sing, smile and laugh with pure enjoyment...
9. holes...any hole to put her finger in...she will obsess over a hole...the texture, how deep...any size of the black unknown...
10. little people...she loves anyone her size...any person she can look eye to eye with...
11. talking...Maddie has something to say about everything...her brother gets in trouble...and he hears it from me...and then Maddie...with the same tone and finger wagging...
12. her teachers...Maddie awaits at the door for her teachers...she loves to learn...she loves to play...and is always wanting to do more for them...
13. sprinkler...she loves to run through the sprinkler...loves to drive her car through the sprinkler...and she loves to drink the water...
14. chase...if you are trying to get her...she is a giggling...a circles she will go...with a few falls...but she is eager to get up and go again...with a huge smile on her face...
15. the backpack...Maddie digs being taller then everyone...and keeping a close eye on us as we hike through the trails of Wyoming...
16. the front door...Maddie loves to go out that door...and just sit and look in the house...and giggle as if she has escaped that madness of our house...
17. stools...Maddie can climb and uses different sizes of stool to climb up to get onto things she not supposed to...now if she could learn to get down...
18. tongue kisses...the best french kisser I know...with sloppy spit and lots of smiles
19. books...Maddie loves to have books read to her...and she loves to read to herself and others...her favorite of all time book is Barnyard Banter...
20. balls...she will heard them, throw them...and chase them...Maddie's new thing is to sit on everything...and balls is one of her favorite things to capture with her butt!
21. mornings...Maddie has started her day with a smile, giggle and singing as long as I can remember...Maddie approaches each day as if she has everything to learn and even more to experience...
