Even though Maddie looked amazing in her pink suspenders this morning, she wanted to arrive at church with as little fanfare as possible. Flanked by her posse, she made into Mass under the radar and was soon seated comfortably in her PaPa’s arms.
The problem was, she was doing her best to make her father laugh and it was really working. She kept making funny faces and her dad kept chuckling, helpless to resist Maddie’s charming sense of humor.
PaPa was actually worried that his daughter’s shenanigans might get him into some hot water when he noticed that something was really rubbing Maddie the wrong way. It turned out that the little boy sitting in front of Madeleine had a squeaky high-pitched voice and it was really disturbing the baby. He kept chattering away and Maddie’s patience was drying up quickly.
Suddenly her bottom lip started to quiver and I realized that the tears could not be far behind. Sure enough, Maddie’s started melting down and it was time for both of us to hit the road. I gathered up my little girl and we made a beeline for the exit. As soon as we got out into the foyer, Maddie was more than happy to quiet down and take a look around.
After about 15 minutes, PaPa mistakenly tried to bring the baby back into Mass. That lasted about three whole minutes before Maddie notified her dad once again, “Time to get me out of here!”
This time we went outside and once again, Maddie was perfectly happy with the change of scenery. Maddie’s reaction to sounds continue to change from week to week, so there’s no telling which noises will bother her and which ones she will ignore. This is just another funny way the baby strives to keep us on our toes.
Just seven days out of the womb – most infants like to take it easy. Some hit the bottle or breast and just pass out – others just lounge around for a good cry or two. That was not on the menu for Mad Maddie – she took her shot at becoming the world’s youngest wedding crasher.
Maddie had been scheduled to spend the weekend with the royal couple, Kate Middleton and Prince William in Monaco – but she was insistent that family comes first and was determined to see her Aunt Joni walk down the aisle.
Aunt Joni’s wedding was flanked by heavy security – but Madeleine made her way in by flirting and charming her way past the most ardent professionals in the business.
She wore a stunning purple Cartier floral tiara that would make Pippa green with envy along with a spectacular Vera Wang Couture Red Carpet evening gown specially imported from the chic Babies R Us in Secaucus, New Jersey.
Maddie crept into the bride’s side pews near the front and pretended to sleep through the whole affair. After the ceremony she was whisked away by Denise aka MiMi with her secret bodyguard “El Jefe” riding in the chase car.
At the reception, Maddie reportedly told Aunt Jacque that she was, “Single and ready to mingle!” Instead I plopped her down into the protective nest of her cadre of great grandparents!
But when the music started – Madeleine enjoyed a special slow dance with Aunt Joni. They were tripping the light fantastic until that eager beaver, Uncle Tim, swept in and called the dance off.
Maddie said a lively time was had by all and was humbled to become the youngest wedding crasher in history. WELL DONE!!
