As you can see, "Madeleine Grace with the Beautiful Face" enjoys looking at herself in the mirror these days.  She also enjoys pointing at just about anything in sight, waving goodbye, and clapping. In honor of the latter skill, we took her to her first Oakland A's game which she thoroughly enjoyed. (She didnot seem to enjoy garlic fries-flavored breastmilk a few hours later.) She's beginning to recognize quite a few words and now can use sign language to ask for a nursing. She continues to crawl and get into everything, and now she pulls herself up. We didn't know she could climb stairs until we took her to a friend's two story house and she immediately scrambled up the entire flight of stairs unaided. We've decided she'll be great on the monkey bars and climbing trees.  

The new photos are here.
