Madeline's favorite new book is Little Bo Peep Can’t Get to Sleep. She wants me to read it to her almost every night. I don't mind, though, because this book is so adorable. Story time jut wouldn't be the same without her blanket. Madeline loves her blankets and calls them her bop. She loves to wrap her blanket in and around her fingers while sucking on her right thumb. It is quite comical to watch.
Madeline loves music. She can now hum a few songs with me such as Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, Rock a bye baby, and Little purple pansies. She also loves for me to sing I am a child of God, I love you a bushel and a peck, Jesus wants me for a sunbeam, Rain is falling all around, and Way up High in the Apple tree. When music is playing in the house she will start dancing. She loves to dance to Peanut Butter Jelly time.
Madeline is a great eater. She absolutely loves cookies and mini marshmallows. She also loves berries, avocados and clementines. For lunch she likes peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and grilled cheese sandwiches. She is not a big fish or red meat eater but will eat chicken. She will only eat chicken if it’s mixed in some sort of sauce. One of her favorite dinners is Japanese curry.
One of Madeline's favorite toys is her dollhouse. She loves the baby and can even fold up the baby’s legs to fit her in the stroller. She loves to open and close the front door to the dollhouse and put people inside the house and then take them out again.
Madeline is a real hands on kind of girl. Whatever I am doing she just wants to be doing the same thing. She loves to clean and started helping vacuum with the swifter vacuum. In fact, she gets mad when I use it first. She also loves to follow me around with a rag or the duster while I clean the house.
Madeline doesn't really make big messes. The biggest mess she will make is when she pulls all the plastic cups, plates, and bowls out of the drawer. She loves to play with the plastic ware. She will sometimes stack them but mostly she just moves them around on the floor.
Madeline loves to look at the family albums and will pick them up from the coffee table and set them down on the ground and look at all the pictures. Sometimes she will bring the books to me so that we can look at them together.
