She asks for "warm white milk in a bottle".
She crawls around on the floor and says she's a baby.
She's growing more attached to her pacifier (if that's possible). She sucks on it so hard she's getting red marks/rashes around her lips.
When she wakes up in the middle of the night she asks to sleep in mommy and daddy's bed. She was never a co-sleeper!
And now this:

Dumbo--a good friend:
And, most importantly, LOADS of Daddy pics:
Ok, Daddy, now you take one of me:

At dinner she pulls up a chair next to her dad, flops her arms on the table, looks directly at him and says, "Daddy, what's the big idea?".
Right now I'm watching her on the video monitor 1.5 hours AFTER I put her to bed while she plays, sings to her stuffed animals, turns her lamp on and off...and on and off a million times, knocks on the door and just expects us to come and answer it. It's hilarious to watch.
Patrick was extra productive one weekend and really got a lot of little tasks done that I've been asking for. He had Maggie help. She felt so proud. One of the projects was to hang two hooks on the bathroom wall for kids towels. She told me she had done it.
While my mom and sister, Ellen, were in town we spent a lot of time just hanging out on the couch--bored. I'd say "whatcha wanna do??" and they'd say "We dunno...". Well Maggie thought she'd make a suggestion. She grabbed one of her plastic cups off the coffee table and said, "you can pee in a cup!". Apparently she was MUCH more aware of the few doctors appointments she's had to tag along to with me. That is one thing I'll never miss about every single dingle pregnancy appt--peeing in a cup!
Maggie was walking up the stairs by herself the other day and I yelled from the couch, "Where you going?" to which she responded, "um, I'm going to check my email". That's what I say every time Patrick leaves his office for a few moments--I run for the computer and check my email.

Making beds out of Twinkies with icing as the blanket and Nilla wafers as a head/face. Maggie ate about 3 spoonfuls of straight icing. Yum! Notice Maggie and birthday girl Addy had the same pig pattern on their jammies.
I think we're going to have to buy her a laptop like the one Addy owns. She clung to it all night long!

I managed to pull off an afternoon of egg decorating. We spent some time at Micheals craft to pick out supplies. It took a while but they finally seemed to get into the spirit and picked out some stuff for decorating. We bought wooden eggs for easier transport back to Utah. I really love the idea of the blown out eggs but with kids I think I just might switch to the wooden ones for a few years!
I have some blown out eggs that, when I have an afternoon devoted to Maggie, I'll have her make an official Easter egg that I'll add to our permanent collection. But to keep her busy while we worked I let her decorate some hard boiled eggs.
The blue egg with rhinestones is the only blown out egg (mine), the pink and black one is mine as well but I used the extra wooden one for that. The two eggs in the middle are Ellens and the last two (including the bigger blue one) are my mom's. I'm glad we did this!

The firetruck/firefighter area. She was completely freaked out by the firefighter and wouldn't get near it for the picture:
The outdoor (?) room:
