Maddie got to learn about baseball today from pitcher and catcher Eric Brooks, at her first little league game.
She even managed to pull team manager Rocky, away from the game for a few minutes. Perhaps he saw potential before she pointed out that she did not yet possess the ability to stand, let alone bat.
The entire Brooks family, Stacy, Nick, Eric and Rocky did their best to show Maddie an appreciation for America's national pastime, eventhough it was clear that her heart still lay with hockey.

To meet her new cousin! This morning at approximately 7am CDT, Maddie's Aunt Rachel and Uncle David welcomed their sweet, baby girl into the world. She came in at an impressive 8lb. 12oz., and is said to have the most perfect chubby cheeks.

Especially Dr. Kerry. This morning she spent some time thinking about her favorite doctor, as she looked at the frame Dr. Kerry had given her, and wiggled on the floor in her purple outfit, also chosen by the good doctor.

As of 11am today - our Madd Page is now 11lbs. 4oz., officially larger than her Uncle Wills at birth (11lbs. 0oz.). Statistically, she is in the:
- 20th percentile of weight (up 10%)
- 55th percentile of height (up 10%)
- 30th percentile of head circumference (up 5%)
As the pediatrician said, "Long and lean." And mighty keen, jelly bean.
In a side note, to show how grown up she is, Maddie slept, instead of screamed bloody murder, in her car seat for the first time.

To celebrate her quarter of a year, we took a walk to Baskin Robbins for another celebratory dessert.Maddie was clearly excited.

At least minimally. Maddie has started to enjoy Emma's exersaucer, just figuring out how to get her hands on the little wheels and make them spin, albeit very slowly.
She has not yet, however, figured out that her feet control her position within the saucer, and will spin herself out of reach of her favorite wheels.

Maddie, Aarin (Aarin is 35 weeks pregnant), and Young Findley spent some time quietly playing the "Now You're Sitting - Now You're Standing!" game, when there was an unexpected surprise.

Now some of you may be thinking, wow, Maddie really grew up fast, and there's something different about Sam. That would be because you're looking at Sam's cousin, Spencer - who bears an incredible likeness to Sam - his wife Yana, and daughter, Nika, who does have a few years on Maddie.They came by for a Father's Day brunch, where we were able to celebrate these gentlemen.
After brunch, Nika pondered how they could make the rest of the day even better. It was decided the three would spend it at the pool.

At 1:58pm EST, Andre Hays Michael came into the world to proud parents, Kerri Ullucci and Derek Michael. He weighed in at a solid 6lb 9 oz. Maddie could not be happier to have her new friend finally on the outside.

As a side note, the Chadwicks rode their bikes in a play to be deemed the most adorable and environmentally conscious LA-ians we know.

Jess decided to try something new. For one of Maddie's afternoon naps, she was swaddled - typical, white noise maker turned on - typical, and then placed in her swing - atypical.

Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs had the Red Wings up 2 to 1. The Williams-Hearne household was prepared - a lineup of black and gold Dewalt tools sat on the fireplace hearth, cold beer chilled in the fridge, and mac and cheese baked in the oven. Maddie warmed up for the game by doing some bicycle exercises with John, and holding onto a sugar snap pea for the first time.
