I think Maddy is going through another growth spur now. For the past three days, she had requested to eat after our daily walk, one hour before our usual dinner time.
She has eliminated her late afternoon nap all together recently. At first I was all worried that she’s not getting enough rest, and slightly disappointed that I don’t get that one hour of washing up/cleaning/make dinner in peace. But Maddy was very clear on telling me her lack of need for that nap. Thankfully, I’m ‘wise’ enough by now to realize that I am not always right..
So she sits on the deck munching her raisins with daddy and Brownie while waiting on me to cook dinner. Half of the time her baby sitter Emily pops out from her deck and greets Maddy. Never would I imagine we would spend a good part of our day chatting with our neighbors from our decks or laughing at the Chen lawn in our fornt yards, but it seems like such a treat now. On the days we don’t run into our neighbors, I feel slightly lost and miss their company…
Maddy is definitely growing taller as well. Her 2T summer outfits seem to fit her just right now. Well, mommy tries to be ’smart’ and got her mostly capri style pants… they used to be really ‘long’ when she first started wearing them two months back, but now they all fit just ‘right’ like regular pants. Thankfully they will still last for a while later being the true capri style…. that is my excuse for getting her cute outfits anyway. Daddy says he used to be the only person getting packages (on-line orders), but now mommy is getting more than him. I can’t help it… it’s like an addiction for me. Some people take pleasure in dining out; some in wine tasting; some in spa treatments…. Mine: shopping for Maddy.
