On another note.
Madelyn has been crawing and pulling herself up since she was about 6 months. She has even started standing on her own in the past two weeks. She will be standing and holding onto something, and then just let go and stand there for about 30 seconds. Once you acknowledge her, or she realizes she'll either grab back on, or fall on her bottom. She's pretty proud of herself, and she looks quite cute doing it. She looks so funny because shes so small, but I cant believe how amazing she is, and just continues to learn new things daily. She can clap and wave hello and goodbye. She even understands when I tell her no to something. She tries to test our limits and laughs at us, but she won't do it (ex: climbing up the stairs) if I say no!
We bought a Strider bike for Jacob a couple of months back, and he absolutely loves it! We take it everywhere with us, it is so light weight, and he can carry it himself and jump on and off without a problem. Hes really getting the nag of it to, he lifts his feet up and balances well. He has a hard time getting himself going on a flat surface, but hes working on it.
We entered a contest, and Madelyn is now also the proud owner of a PINK Strider bike. She tried it on for size but her feet cant reach the ground! We'll hold onto it for later.
