Madeline Eve: Month Ten

Our sweet girl is ten months old now, and she is such a big girl!

Madeline is a bit of a wild child, she loves to explore. We've been playing outside a lot lately and she loves to crawl and climb into everything, including the street. She walks along furniture and is getting better and standing without holding on, by right now it only lasts for one second. 

She loves to explore new toys, recently she's discovered brother's water table in the backyard and she loves to get herself soaking wet playing at it. Although she's not a fan of actually playing in water or bath time anymore. Doesn't really make sense...

She's still being difficult with her sleep schedule and wakes up a couple times at night to feed. And lately doesn't let me put her back in bed for at least 30-60 minutes. So this momma is TIRED.

She loves all food. She will almost eat anything I give her. Even veggies, which she will make a face with at first but then eat them down like a champ. Complete opposite of her brother! I think she's also enjoying her four teeth, since her top two came down this month, they help her chomp away on real food like apple slices. She's also trying to steal any and all food all the time, so I broke my rule recently and gave he a couple licks of my ice cream.

She also loves to clap, nob her head for no-no and yes-yes, and do little dance moves. This girl is a bit of a handful but always fun to watch and cuddle.

She only likes carousel rides if she's on my lap.

Cousin time!

Madeline Eve: Month 9

June was a busy month, and Madeline has really grown and developed! Some fun things about Madeline include, she is very attached to her muslin blankets she sleeps with, they instantly comfort her when she's upset or tired. Her sleep and nap schedule have still been very inconsistent, and sometimes mom feels like a zombie. Her crawling game has gone to the next level with climbing and she can now lift herself up to standing along furniture. No steps yet but she loves practicing standing, so it's a matter of time. She loves to clap and wave her arms around, and has started doing some dance moves when she hears music. Madeline loves food, she's always trying to steal our food and is always willing to try everything. Some of her favorites include baby food, bananas, strawberries, cheerios, puffs, yogurt bites, and apples. She does NOT like water, including no longer enjoying baths. She loves stealing brothers toys. And she still only has her two bottom teeth.

Sibling love!

Enjoyed the Grandma snuggles!

(Pooping, all the food she's been eating has created her into another poop monster)

At Madeline's 9 month well-check, and Jonas' 3 year check.

Jonas turned THREE!

Jonas turned three and I still can't believe my baby boy is getting so old! He's getting tall, at 39 inches! He loves to be silly and act like a dinosaur. He loves to play outside and play with his friends. Mostly friends includes any kid that he see's anywhere, but his favorites are the neighbor kids and nursery friends. He has been using his imagination more and always tries to include Madeline. Jonas is mostly potty trained, but we do have our bad days. He is also very excited to start three year-old preschool in the fall! This boy keeps us on our toes but is always fun!

Jonas turned three and we had fun celebrating his big day with a dinosaur party. Jonas was so excited to hand out his birthday invites to his friends in the neighborhood and help make dinosaur cookies for the party. We had the party in our backyard with some friends, with dinosaur themed snacks and games, and a dinosaur visited us! The dinosaur was a big hit with most of his friends (the girls two and younger were not fans), especially when they realized Jonas' dad was dressed up as a dinosaur.

May Adventures: Butler Family Reunion

For Memorial Weekend we enjoyed time with some of JT's family in Driggs, Idaho. My MIL grew up in Driggs and the Butler family organized a family reunion so we stayed with JT's parents and sister in a cute townhome rental in Driggs. We spent Saturday and Sunday mostly doing reunion activities, and Monday in Jackson Hole. It was a good weekend and the weather was nice!


Only JT is pictured because Jonas was playing at the playground 99% of the time, and I was in the car while Madeline napped.

Jonas has been a bit obsessed with Bears since we went to Bear World.

And that wraps up our month of fun in May! JT is back at work and life is getting a little more normal around the Dewey household. Time went by so fast!
