We came to Ocean Shores for New Years for the 2nd year in a row. We're having a great time despite the gloomy weather. Here are some photos of Maddy from our trip to the beach last year for New Years compared to his year. She's growing up so fast!

We spent Christmas in Vancouver at Aunt Linda and Uncle Bob's house. Great Grandma Pat, Grandma and Grandpa Draper as well as Uncle Dan, Aunt Nicole and Cousin Hayden were all together with us. We had a great time, especially the babies (who aren't really babies anymore!). Hayden and Maddy had tons of presents which took almost 2 hours to open!
Cousins playing with their "old" toys before the presents began
Maddy liked "riding" her presents almost as much as opening them
Part of the reason it took so long to open the presents was that anytime one cousin started opening a present, the other had to help out!
Unfortunately Maddy got pretty sick by Christmas Eve and spent a lot of time snuggling and resting (it was later determined that she had an ear infection in BOTH ears).
Maddy and Great Grammie!

Monday was Veteran's Day so Mommy and Maddy went to the park in the afternoon to enjoy Mom's day off from work. Maddy was not super into the park and the playground equipment was apparently very scary. Oh well, better luck next time. Here are a few shots where she was moderately content.

Maddy likes to do pretty much anything that we're doing. Her new favorite thing is to help us vacuum. Usually that means chasing us around as we push the vacuum and hoping we'll put it down so she can have a turn. She finally got her shot with the sweeper vacuum and had a blast. We can't wait until she's big enough to actually vacuum and then hope that she still thinks its fun :)

Maddy dressed up in a Halloween outfit for daycare today and then when she got home she wore her elephant costume to help us hand out candy to the trick-or-treaters. She was relatively indifferent to the costume but tolerated it enough to take some cute photos. Happy Halloween!

Maddy had her 1 year check-up today. She weighed 20lbs 13oz (44th percentile) and measured 30 inches (77th percentile). The doctor said she was doing great developmentally and was very impressed with how well she was walking. She unfortunately got 6 shots which she was not a fan of. Luckily with a little Tylenol and some distraction at daycare she was good to go.

Ted and I went to Las Vegas earlier this month for a much needed vacation. Grandma Kim and Grandpa Larry came up and stayed with Maddy which was much appreciated. They enjoyed their time with Maddy, even though she kept them on their toes. They had some time to get out and about in the NW and even made it to Pike Place Market. Thanks Grandma and Grandpa!

We want to the Puyallup Fair today and had a GREAT time! We saw so many animals and walked around all the exciting rides (Maddy's too little but we talked all about how she can go on them in the future). We of course ate some wonderful fair food (Maddy's favorite was funnel cake!).
So happy about the bunnies!
Goats, goats, goats!
Mmmmm funnel cake!
