Halloween costumes

Although I did buy a halloween costume for Madeline last year, I technically did not ever put her in it... whoops. Therefore, I felt obligated to maximize her outfit choices this year (especially since I found cute costumes at Sam's for only $12)! So here are the options: #1. Butterfly type animal and #2. Giraffe!

New words

Madeline has a BUNCH of new words including boo-boo, again, cracker, and cheez-it. Her favorite words are still HI and thank you! I'm pretty sure that one time she said "you're welcome." She also is an expert at making monkey noises and hooting like an owl. And a couple of times she neighed like a horse :)

Labor day rocks!

We had an awesome weekend! Aunt Riri, Uncle Curty-wurty, and Anna came to visit. Unfortunately, I didn't get my camera out very often... but I did snag this pic of the Stokes eating breakfast one morning (and I'm sure Maria will be very thankful that I posted it here). We had lots of good times hanging out, checking out the parks, and catching up! We even went to the Dickerson Park Zoo, not quite as big as the St. Louis Zoo, but better than a sharp stick in the eye!

Thank you

Madeline has been sort of saying thank you for a while, but tonight she said it very clearly. It was so cute! We've been having tons of rain and thunderstorms, and she seems to be fascinated by the thunder.
