Ride A Bike...No Thanks!

My husband and I bought this adorable little "Hello Kitty" bicycle for Madison on her birthday--6 whole months ago! She has yet to ride it! Whenever she does get on it, she tries to sit in the doll carrier on the back of the bike, instead of on the seat! Go figure...

I tied a rope on the front of the bike so I could pull her, because MiMi's back isn't what it used to be...No worries, Madison doesn't want to be pulled anyway!

Every time we get that bicycle out, it's the same scenario--and the same look on Maddie's face...The burning question is..."Will Madison ever ride this bicycle?" It's not looking very promising at the moment!

16 Months Old Yesterday...And No Paci

This picture was taken about a month ago, but I love it. Cade looks so "grown up" in his sweater and jeans. Notice, that hand putting that shape in the correct hole--while watching me with the camera...The boy's got brains...
I didn't think about it until today, but Cade turned 16 mos old yesterday! Where has the time gone? Of course, he's at the age now that he keeps us all entertained. Each new day brings more words to his vocabulary, and I do believe he grew an inch just last week!
He gave up his pacifier about a month ago, but in the process he's become a bit of a "night baby". He wakes up every night, and hasn't figured out how to comfort himself and go back to sleep. His parents are struggling with this--especially his mama, who does all of the getting up and down...It's hard to convince them that it will pass.
Oh, if they only knew...getting over this "hurdle" is just the first of many more that they will face in raising this beautiful child...but what a wonderful journey it is...I'm thankful that I get to "tag along"!

Strawberry Fields...Strawberry Festival

On Saturday, Madison's parents took her to a nearby Strawberry Festival. In addition to fields of fresh, juicy strawberries, there were all kinds of activities for young and old alike...

In this photograph you can see people in the field picking strawberries, while the festival is going on beside them. Look close and you will notice a row of white tents--the site of a Civil War re-enactment taking place...

Several activities were available, but Madison's favorite activity was probably the "cow train". It was a little train made from barrels that were decorated to look like cows. Neat idea!

Madison's favorite activity would have been the "bouncy house", but an unfortunate incident occured that put that activity low on her list...

While Maddie was bouncing in the "bouncy house" a large boom sounded...and the bouncy house immediately began to deflate--quickly! The generator had stopped working. Madison had the misfortune of being located near the door, which made her get trampled as scared children began bolting for the exit!

Brandy's mom was trying to hold the deflating house up--along with two other adults--to keep the children from being trapped inside. Meanwhile, Maddie's daddy sprang into action and rushed to Maddie's rescue, getting her out of the deflating house, but not before someone kicked her in the face! She brought home a black eye as a souvenir!

Madison didn't care for the pony rides either. She sat on it for just a second, then decided that she didn't want any part of that pony after all...I think she's just not going to be an animal lover.
I think that Madison's second favorite part of the Strawberry Festival was...the food. She told me that she had french fries, catsup, and corn dogs for lunch...along with fresh homemade strawberry ice cream! Ummm.... She's a lot like her MiMi!
