Of course, Florida is just a hop, skip and jump away - so maybe we'll see a few entries from there in April. We'll see - it just depends on how certain events time out, as usual.
Madison is going to bed at a reasonable hour this evening, as the last few evenings have been much later than necessary for her. Poor thing slept in quite a bit this morning, to about 9:30 - 10:00 am. For her, that's late. She usually rises around 8:30 or so, and calls out from her crib: "Mama! Dada! Up!"
She was helping Mommy again today with her sewing, and trying on a few costumes as well. She'll wear just about anything, but is pretty particular about what she wants to put on. She'll have the funniest combinations of outfits, and be completely comfortable for an entire day wearing them. Occasionally we let her dress herself, but sometimes the choice can make mere mortals wince. Fortunately, her overwhelming cuteness overpowers any fashion choice.
Tonight was our last service of Xtreme, which was so much better than the last time. Madison got to meet all the characters again, but this time there was no White Rabbit. In fact, most of the characters were a little more extreme, including these two here, Bowser Thughammer and Thwimp. They were our resident bad boys, the larger guy basing his character on Biff Tannen from the Back to the Future series. We gave him so many Bowser lines, it was funny. He is such a Back to the Future fan that it was easy for him to fall into character. His character was a naughty one, but the actor is actually a great guy, and Madison loves to jump on top of him - and the other guy too. Note how the set looks like a skate park - we had ramps all over this time around. Mommy did a great job coming up with these costumes, and the outfits for everyone else too. I think my favorite thing is the duct tape holding Bowser's shin guards in place.
As far as Xtreme activities, Madison tried roller skating this month for the first time - which she'll keep doing too. She really likes roller skating, especially the dressing up part. She's tried skating a few times this month, and she's also been enjoying climbing up rock walls - with a little help from Daddy. I'll have to try and get a picture of that: she climbs up the rock wall and slides down the slide on the other side. She loves the playground outside. I think that's about as far as we'll go this month for Xtreme though! In other words, no skysurfing or BASE jumping.
