This week we went over to Melissa’s place to visit with her.


Madison showed off her new ability to sit up all by herself.


She will sit and play independently for 5 or 10 minutes like this now!


Too bad I took these with my iPhone, and some turned out blurry.

So the other exciting part about this visit was that Madison got to experience her first dip into a pool!


I bought this little swimming suit for her last summer before she was even born.


It was on clearance at Target, and I thought it was cute, but I never imagined how cute it would really look once it was on Madison!


She seemed to enjoy the water.


She liked splashing the water with her hand.


I think she’ll like it a lot more once she gets a little more used to it.  We took video of her experiencing the pool for the first time, of course.  🙂

Also, here’s another picture of Madison showing off her sitting skills.


And today she was trying to “blow raspberries” which is the only way I know of to describe that “bbbbb” sound.  Anyway, it was cute, so I took video.  Of course.  Unfortunately she would only do it when her swing was moving.  I tried to get video of her with the swing stopped, but she wouldn’t do it.  She’s very opinionated 🙂

That’s all for today!  Unfortunately our internet has been acting horribly, so I haven’t been able to post as much as I’d like to, but hopefully that will change.
