Madelyn is now 18 months and I totally slacked on keeping up with the blog. I was to busy enjoying life. I am not going to try and recap the last year, but just pick up with how fun it is to have an 18 month old!
I just recently took a new job and we switched daycares so that was a big transition for the whole family. She was going to a huge daycare facility in Poughkeepsie, NY called Cinnamon Tree, and I really love it. She was in the infant room and had been with the same teachers since she was 8 weeks old. I interviewed about 4 different places and settled on Best Friends Family Day Care in Valatie, and I couldn't be happier. They only take kids from one year old and up, so she is the "baby" of the group. I think being around the older kids and kids that are around 2 years old has been alot of fun for her, and socially is helping her get out of her stage of hating "strangers".
One thing I really like about this daycare was that their menu was also all homemade, and such a great variety. This kid is eating better the me these days, lol. She is loving turkey tetrazzini, homemade cinnamon muffins, blueberries, and all sorts of new things that I might not have thought she would have liked.
Madelyn also got her first hair cut recently! She needed it so bad, and I am so glad I finally did it. I was so nervous about it, but the lady did it in like 5 minutes, and Madelyn just sat on my lap eating goldfishies.
We just booked our trip to Sesame Place for next month, and I can't wait for her to meet Elmo! That just might have to be my next post. If any of you who read this have been to Sesame Place, I'd love to hear your experience!
