A little update

So I'm sitting here, uploading and going through pictures, trying to come up with a post that isn't a complete Maddie overload and... well... I didn't get too far.  Tomorrow is Elder Mikey T's birthday and I just wanted to get one picture of Maddie holding a sign and smiling and then I realized that she's 16 months old and I'm crazy.

Life is so good right now.  We moved up to Bountiful for the summer and are loving it.  Sometimes a change of scenery is the greatest thing.  Our days have been filled with swimming, long walks, trips to the library, playing outside, and just being overall ecstatic that summer is finally here.  I could live in a world where it was always summer. There's something about 9:00 sunsets, laying on the tramp at night and the not-too-crisp morning air that are perfect.

Josh is gone tonight.  I realize how spoiled I am considering that in over two years of marriage, this is only the second time we've been apart at all.  He went to the Celtics game 7 in Boston and is loving life right now.  Maddie celebrated Josh being gone by having a 4:30 am mom/daughter party the last 2 nights - awake and as happy as can be at 4:30 in the morning.  Good thing she's cute right?

And, finally, Maddie took her first steps a couple weeks ago.  Huge milestone for this stubborn girl.  She just took 7 or so steps, sat right down and hasn't walked since.  That girl.
