I've been crazy busy this summer and obviously the result is a neglected blog. After father's day, it was my dad's birthday. We had a swim party before the bbq. I was so sick of getting in a suit from Cherry Hill that I sat out and enjoyed the shade for once. It sure seemed like nobody was cooperating with my camera taking. Even London couldn't keep her eyes open for one dang picture! At least Madden was happy! So, I guess the monthly changes with our family include: London's learning to fake like she's asleep, Madden's gotten another tooth, he's eating more than London, (If not grabbing at her food and finishing it all together.) and he's walking around furniture like crazy! He's definitely a grabber regarding hair, food, and ANY clutter on the floor. London has a sudden terror against any creeping/crawling thing. Yesterday she was screaming and sobbing in genuine terror over a moth. Ty and I laughed so hard and then told her it was a butterfly. She started crying and said, "I hate that butterfly." Same thing happened at Cherry Hill. She ran down the ramp into Pirate's Cove sobbing and screaming all the way to my chair over.....a butterfly. The other day I found ants in the kitchen (only a few) and London was so upset. I got out some Raid spray and told her not to let Madden crawl over by the wall. Then the drama began and she started to cry saying,"I don't want Madden to crawl by the wall and die like the ants!!!" It's such a dramatic life. Madden is talking more saying Ma-ma, Da-da, Lunun (London), Go, and that's about the extent. He loves his food and is atrociously messy when he eats. He loves his cousin Gabe, and they try to take whatever the other one has! We also gave him a haircut! His first! Now he looks like a little boy and not my baby! SO SAD! Well, I vow to do better at updating so I don't forget all of the funny thing my kids do! Here's my little Mad after a fight with a Nutrigrain bar.
