Madison is almost ten months old. I can't believe it! She is getting so big and so smart! I love playing with her. Her two new favorite things right now are clicking her tongue on the top of her mouth and sharing. She loves to give me one of her toys and then once I've played with it for a bit I give it back to her. Then she hugs it (or puts it in her mouth) and then she offers it back to me. We can do this for a very long time, but it's so much fun because she is so expressive. I love watching her little eyes light up. It makes my day!

Madison is crawling all over and climbing up on everything. She loves to try to walk while holding on to either myself or Alex. She also is quite the dare devil. She likes to just let go whether it be while she's standing and holding on to something or whether she's in the middle of walking and holding my hands. She is very brave. It seems like she is always looking for my reaction to whatever it is she is doing or has just done.

She also loves to go to the park. The other day we went to the park with our friends (Diana and Levi). Here is a picture of the kids swinging (well really just posing for a picture :) )

I love her so very much and I can't believe that in about two months, she's going to be one.

I know it's been awhile since I've posted anything here on my sort of took hold and when I had time I was working on updating my cooking blog.

Anyway, my family and I are getting ready to move AGAIN! This is a good move though. We've been back in California now for almost 8 months and we've been living in Joshua Tree. We love the house we're living in, but we're lacking community in a big way. We miss being around people and having people over and whatnot, so we've decided to move on base. We really felt God tugging at our hearts to make this big change, so we decided to go with it.

We will be moving around the middle of May. I've never had to pack up everything with a little one around, so any prayers you could send this way would be great ;)

Hope you're all doing well!
