The Frog...

Matt came home from work on Tuesday ECSTATIC because he had found a new pet for Madi...

a frog!

Apparently he was greeted by this creature when he got to work in the morning, which led him to capture him (it?) and save it for a pet.

After scrounging up a cage and creating a mini habitat, the frog (which has yet to be named, except by Seven who gave him the name Gabriel after his friend at school...) has found a new home in Madi's room.

She loves to stare at him and "ribbit". She tells us all kinds of things about him, which have yet to be interpreted... they have become pretty good friends!

We often find her doing this with the cage on the floor...

Great Grandpa and Grandma Olson came for a quick visit this weekend and Madi insisted on lugging her cage out to the family room to show Grandpa "ribbit"...

This look is my favorite...

How could you not take her seriously?

She told him everything she knew about frogs...

And then he told her everything he knew about frogs...

And thus, the conversation continued as she convinced this 78 year old man to lay down on his stomach to get a better look!

It's a hard life:

- being a toddler

- wearing pink football clothes

- talking about frogs

- running around barefoot all day

- being adored by everyone around you

But, she does it well!


  1. LOVE LOVE LOVE These!!! :) Is the Mr. Ribbit "mine"?? :)

  2. I think it's obvious that Madi has named him "Ribbit." :)
