Annual Frankenmuth Trip

Following Tradition, we made our annual trip to Frankenmuth earlier this month.  We visited Bronners and Zehnders as we do every December.  At Bronners Maddy picked out a nutcracker (I buy one every year) and a Little People's Nativity Set (so adorable).  Then at Zehnders we all enjoyed a chicken dinner while Maddy devoured the butter noodles...yummm!  Frankenmuth is always busy this time of year, however, I must say Bronners was extra busy...border line insane.  Maddy was hungry and tired and all the people was a bit much.  She calmed down at Zehnders, where she met Santa!

10 Months!

So Maddy's 10 month post is a little late (okay, very late), but that's just because the photos we took of her in her adorable onesie with stickers was stuck on our camera. Our computer was out of space and we couldn't download the photos.  However, we got a hard drive and I'm back in business! 

10 months has been very similar to 9 months, but the big thing this past month is Maddy has her two bottom teeth coming up (slowly, but surely)!  Also, Maddy has been practicing standing on her own and taking a step or two.  Very exciting!  She's still not a huge fan of eating, but she is trying more and more foods.  She seems to like peas (sometimes), she gobbles up crackers (most the time) and enjoys soup (usually)!  Some days she takes her bottles before her naps and bedtime, some days not so much.  She is very adventures now and loves opening the little cabinets on the kitchen island, and crawling as fast as she can while we chase her.
