Maddie did awesome as the flower girl. She walked down the isle throwing hand fulls of flowers, even though her dress was a little long (we didn't want to get it altered b/c she's wearing the same dress for Rachel's wedding) she did just fine going down. Leaving however, she put on a slight show. Ashlee had been talking to Maddie that she would be moving to Houston to live with Michael after the wedding. They even had one last "slumber party" in her room before Ashlee got married and everything. Well, when the couple was pronounced "husband and wife" and walked back down the isle, Maddie thought Ashlee was leaving for good without saying good-buy. Maddie got very upset and didn't want to walk back down the isle with me and my escort. She just sat there with tears in her eyes shaking her head to me. I finally had to whisper to her she could go back with daddy (who was sitting in the front row) or come with me now. She hesitated but grabbed my hand and walked back down with me. The crowd had no idea why she was so upset and they thought the whole thing was really funny. I wasn't that bothered by it, I went in with the expectation that you never know what a little kid is going to do in a situation like that, and I also felt bad for her since she thought Ashlee was leaving her then and there. Other then that, she was a champ and I'm excited to see her as the flower girl in Corey and Rachel's wedding. Maddie did get very upset and needed to be held after Michael and Ashlee got in the car to drive away. It melted my heart.
On the dance floor, Maddie was hysterical, not really knowing what to do, but to bounce up and down in that balloon of a dress to the music playing. She also made a friend Lilly, who was also 4. They had a great time together.
I don't have any pictures of the event, since I was in it, but hopefully I'll be able to get a few of Maddie dancing from someone.
There are not great by any means, but all I had was a borrowed Iphone with me to take a couple of pictures of Brian dancing with Maddie. I thought it was so sweet.
Oh yea, and about that tid-bit in my last post about 5 days ago about not swelling yet, well I guess I spoke to soon, because my feet and ankles are starting to be affected. And my fingers. I have to stop every once and a while to elevate them, and my shoes are not very comfortable anymore. I think its a combination of the heat and pregnancy.
