After our happy vacation in the hills, the Rigbys came to the big city to take care of errands and catch a movie. I was more than happy to watch Maddie while they were at the show...we had a great time together. She can walk across the room by herself now, and although she's not super steady she's definitely getting more confident. She looks like a drunken sailor, but boy is she a cute one! So that's pretty much what we did during her waking hours...walked laps around the house. Endless laps. I haven't had this much exercise since Havasupai!!
When it came time for Maddie to go to bed, I took her downstairs to say goodnight to Uncle Hunter. Well she definitely understands the words "bedtime" and "goodnight" because as I told Hunter to say goodnight, her sweet face got the saddest, most heartbroken look! It tore at my heart...I couldn't bear to see that heartwrenching look! And it worked, too...she earned a few extra minutes of wakey-time for that one! I really don't know how you mamas do it, I'm just putty in their hands.
On Saturday the Rigbys went home, and we followed them to Heber shortly afterwards. Then we all headed over to the Demolition Derby...isn't that awesome?! It's amazing how much fun we had just watching cars smash into each other. Even Maddie had a great time...she was completely enthralled. I've never seen her hold still for such a long period of time; it was quite impressive!
All in all, I'd say it was a pretty decent week. :)
