|Killisnoo, one of my five brown bear buddies.|

Time is spinning ever faster now, and 10 weeks have passed since Madeline's arrival. The time has been memorable and enjoyable, but having a child IS a big adjustment, just like everyone says it will be. Somehow I had convinced myself that such exaggerations were not going to affect my outlook or approach. But, alas, I have found there to be no exaggeration in the assertion. Albeit challenging at times, certainly with many ups and downs, we are finding our way and making a happy little family.
|I like crinklies. Thank you!|
|A picture speaks a thousand words.|
Since many of you are here for pictures of Madeline, I will forgo rambling as I am prone to do (have already done?) and finish out with some pictures with captions.
Our little "milkaholic" milk drunk once again.
Aren't I just darling?
In the alcove of downtown business on Lincoln St. waiting
for the Alaska Day parade to begin.
Madeline has now outgrown the hat and bunting she was wearing
this day, in addition to several of her first outfits.
She is clearly distressed about it.
One of Madeline's first grins captured for posterity.
When she smiles, the room lights up.
The personalized onsie was created by a long-time Filipek
family friend and neighbor. Unfortunately, Madeline has
just about outgrown this one as well.
One of Madeline's favorite activities- studying for her mid-terms. Ha!
The book is a gift from the local library's "Babies and Books" program.
We love our library!
Another precious moment.
All dressed and ready to go trick-or-treating downtown.
Sitka really pulls out all the stops on Halloween, and we saw
so many really creative and well done costumes on both
the parents and children, it was definitely a treat.
