The Beginning of Fall

Tyler really wanted canned peaches and I found a great deal.  I got a little excited and ended up with seven boxes.  We gave a box away and canned most of the other boxes.

Fortunately I became quicker with the canning process.

In the end we canned 60 quarts.

Madison figured out how to open her puffs with her bottom teeth.

Caught in action.

Apparently there are not enough to choose from and she needed more of a selection.

Madison's new favorite activity is to climb on her couch and press up against the window.

She can climb the couch all by herself.

She didn't quite make it, so this is attempt two.


Playing at the park

Conked out after playing outside.

I really like Madison's hair in this one.  We went down for pictures at my grandparents 60th wedding anniversary party.

Our bishop gave all the primary kids a pumpkin from his farm.  Madison also received one.  She likes to play with it.

Madison is also one on the most popular babies at church...she also has a fan club there.  It's probably because she smiles just like this to people.  The husband of a couple sitting next to us in Sunday School said he wanted a baby after playing with her during the hour.

10 Months and Growing

Here are a few pictures from this last month that we thought you would all enjoy.  We appear in some of them, but we're realists.  We know what our public wants.  And so we present to you what a month with Madison Ames is like.

She absolutely loves her toys.  Lauren's sister, Jeni, was so nice to give us some of her old toys and M can't get enough of them.  The hair in the picture above was just after a swim.

She loves to drag this dinosaur around.

Madison mistakenly thought that if she acted happy that she could push back her bed-time.  Too bad for her we are pretty firm with her bed-time.

This was one more attempt to shmooze her way into a late night.

She wasn't as happy once we turned the camera off and put her into her crib.

10 months on this day.

Going to church

"Hey you over there! Wanna buy a pink ball?"

When we take her for a ride in the stroller she likes to ride in luxury.  She only has one foot up here but normally she throws both up to create an extremely posh experience.

She loves to swim!

We went camping over labor day weekend and the mosquitoes were thick!

We stopped at city creek on our way home from camping and ate lunch with Shawn Poor.  Madison really enjoyed herself on this water feature until the security guard came and told us that everybody, crawling babies included, had to have shoes to be on the pad--in case they slipped.  I'll decline to comment on that.

And here is Madison again, on her way back from rehab judging from the look on her face.  Lauren thinks I have a tendency to look like this in pictures.  hmm.
