Yes, I did it!
Before & After

Both After
Don't worry it looks as though her hair is still going to have curl. (YEAH!)

Independance

This is what happens when you let your toddler dress herself... She gets it half right.

Madi loves putting on Carson's and my shoes. My favorite is when she puts on my heels.

Don't worry that I was super freaked out the first time she did this! Now she does it all the time. I just have to make sure the tray isn't on it.

Thank You, Grammy!

My aunt made a super cute reversable skirt pattern for her girls. I was curious if it came in a maternity size. My mother took it upon herself to make me and Madi skirts. Thanks a ton!! Madi's is reversable, mine is not. They turned out super cute! We wore them to church today and recieved plenty of compliments on them. I'm super grateful because it's super hard for me to find materinty skirts.

Children's Museum


Last week, Carson, Madi & I went to the Children's Museum of Phoenix. I wasn't thinking... it was a Friday in mid May. There were at least 3 buses having end of the year field trips. Other than that, we had a great time. For anyone who hasn't been, it's an old 3 story building filled with interactive things for children to do. It's great for kids under 5yrs. My favorite parts were the 3yrs and under room and the pretend grocery store. I had to show Madi how to us the shopping cart. She then proceeded to steal a cart from a child while he wasn't looking and fill it with produce. Also there is this super cool part. They hung about 100 or more foam pool noodles on ropes. You get to walk through them. It's kind of like a blind maze. You can't see where you are going, only noodles all around you. The worst part of it for me didn't even have anything to do with the museum itself... About 30 min. after we got there I realized I split the seat of my pants! They were my favorite maternity pants, too! Also, there was no way we were leaving... It cost $9 a person (anyone over 1yr) to get in. I couldn't just blow that money. So, I spent the afternoon hugging walls, hiking my pants up as high as possible & tugging my shirt down. All in all we had a good time. I think I'm going to gte a year membership. It's a lot cheaper that way & Madi seemed to like it a lot.
