The Seahawks on Monday night football combined with fajitas is SUPER EXCITING according to Maddy :)

This is our life. Sometimes your kid chooses to wear every pink item she owns while riding her pink bike so that she looks like someone dumped pepto bismal on her. And yes, she is wearing pajamas with Santa on them in October because those were the only ones that were clean!

Wow, 300 days of pictures! I can't believe it's been almost 10 months since we started this adventure. I'm already thinking about what we'll do to document things this well once the year of photo-of-the-day ends.
Here's Maddy wearing my shoes. She walked all over the living room and when she would almost fall because they're way too big she would say, WHOA!
While in Vancouver, Maddy, Linda, Larry and I went and met with my Grandma's retirement home about moving her into the assisted living part of the building. The Director was wonderful and showed genuine kindness and empathy towards our situation, which we greatly appreciated during this difficult transition. Grandma will be moving in next weekend and seems excited to have more support but also still live on her own.
Here's Maddy with Linda and Larry walking around looking at apartments.

Maddy had her 2 year check-up today. It was a great appointment with our favorite doctor, Dr. Moore. Maddy's doing great developmentally and really advanced with talking and motor skills. Unfortunately she had to get 2 shots but she did great with only a few tears.
She weighs 26lbs and 6oz and is 34 inches tall. And is right around the 46th percentile for weight and 53rd percentile for height. Pretty average :)

Ted and I went to the Salish Lodge last weekend which is next to Snoqualmie Falls. We spent Friday night there while Ted's Mom took care of Maddy. We had a great time and a much needed break from all of our obligations, stresses, etc. The building to the top left of the waterfall is the lodge where we stayed. Grateful for sunny fall days, amazing Italian dinners, and the company of each other.

Sorry for being so behind (especially sorry Jenn who's been bugging me for a week to post quicker). Things got really hectic during and after Maddy's birthday weekend and we've had a hard time getting back on track. Here's a recap of where things stand. Also, I'll post more pics from Maddy's birthday weekend soon (including cousin photo shoot, 2nd birthday party, and the trip to the zoo).
Maddy and I went grocery shopping at Trader Joes and she insisted on pushing the cart. It slowed us down a little but she had fun so it was worth it.
Mommy and Maddy smiles!
We ordered Thai food the other day since the Seahawks had a special Thursday night game. Maddy devoured it!
We've had some pretty nice fall days lately which means we even got to the park.
Maddy's decided it's fun to sit on Bailey's dog food tin in the pantry. Crazy kid!
Grandpa brought us oysters from Oregon when he came up for the long weekend. We grilled some and Maddy LOVED them. We even called Grandpa to tell him how big of a fan she was. She literally ate 4 or 5.
Ted and I took the day off for Maddy's actual birthday and went to the zoo and out to lunch. Maddy scarfed down a grilled cheese and fries and even stole some of mom's clam chowder.
During our trip to the zoo, Maddy and Ted posed in the shark mouth!
Great Grammie bought Maddy this tunnel for her birthday. It's been a big hit!
Oregon and Washington played football and we were all ready in our opposing clothing to cheer on our team. Of course the Ducks won :)
Grammie's birthday is right before Maddy's so on the first night the family was all here, we celebrated Grammie's birthday!

We had dinner with Ted's family now that his parents are back from Canada and Maddy kept talking about her birthday. She has started asking people if they will help her blow out her candles which is cute but made Ted's Dad think she might need a little practice so we rounded up some candles and put them in her dinner and she practiced. She thought it was great fun and got pretty good at it.

We went to Costco yesterday evening to get a few things (who am I kidding, you never get a "few" things when you go to Costco). So, $175 later, we headed to the food court for cheap tasty treats. Maddy and I scoped out a table while Ted grabbed us food. Maddy was super excited about the prospect of ice cream!
