Why is life better? Maddie has moved on to the world of real food. You see that item in her right hand? That's a slab of cantaloupe. Miss Maddie is such a big girl now. She won't even eat that canned baby food from me anymore; she just wants the real stuff. Although she still loves nursing and I fear she'll never let go of that one. 10 years old and nursing...eew. I dread the dat I have to start weaning because I'll have one sad baby.
