Melinda loves her new camera even though she hasn't really figured out how to use it. On Sunday March 22 she got down and took some pictures of Xavier since he's already 7 weeks old.
We started a parent-tot gymnastics class. Madelyn loves it!
Aunt Suzette and Uncle Ryan headed to Vegas for a weekend and Michael had to go to Denver, so Grandma Freidenberger came over to spend time with Melinda and the three grandkids. We took a trip to Dinosaur Journey in Fruita where the girls got to play.
At first the girls wanted to go dig for bones, but then both were reluctant to get in. Madelyn would only get in if Grandma would hold her. Checking out the water.
The girls played really well together. Madelyn refers to Adriana as "my Ana."
This is Old Blue, the newest resident in the Marks household. He is a blue lobster, or as Madelyn says "blue lopter." Madelyn loves him and loves to feed him. He has scared us twice because he has molted and we thought he was dead. We just didn't want Madelyn to be heartbroken and the store has no more to replace the little fellow.

Madelyn still loves her little brother. We placed him next to her and she didn't want us to pick him up. She loves to lay with him and they do tummy time together. Xavier found his thumb (this was a one-time deal so far) The weather is finally getting nice enough that we can play outside. Madelyn prefers to wear her sunglasses on top of her head instead of over her eyes. We have tried to tell her many times that they do more good on her eyes, but she thinks they are more fashionable on top of her head.
Melinda is officially into the next decade of life. She felt old for a little bit, but then she remembered that no matter how old she is, Michael will always be older.
Madelyn helped Daddy hang her new window covering. She drilled holes... and hammered in the screw anchors. Xavier took his first bottle on Sun. Feb. 22. He ate it up with no problems.
Xavier is still not a fan of bath time, but it makes for some cute pics
