Seven Months Old!

Dear Maddie,
I'm trying to be a good Mommy and catch up with your monthly posts! I feel like time is flying by SO fast!! *tear* I was looking back at your early monthly pictures and just can't believe how big you are getting! Every single day is a blast with you, but I do get a little sad when I realize your tiny baby days are pretty much done. Then, I see this sweet little smile and can't help but get happy again:
I feel like this past month you have grown so much! You've always rolled around a little bit, but now you really use rolling as your main source of transportation. If you see something you want, you just roll however many times it takes to go and get it! It's SUPER adorable when you roll around so you can get to us!
You have graduated to the level 2 foods. You are still a very good eater and though we give you them with caution, you do love you some prunes! Not sure you get that from any of us. You also have started spinning your bottle when you are eating. We can't figure out why, but you seen to enjoy it thoroughly!
You are really good at playing independently and keeping yourself entertained. I may have shed a little tear the day you didn't want to play with me at all. You just wanted to be left alone with all your fun toys. *tear again* AND you finally made the move to your own bedroom. You caught on really quick, and lucky for my emotions we didn't have to let you cry it out much at all. Whew!
So there you have it...growing up right before our very eyes! We love you so much, Madison!! You are such a beautiful and happy baby! Thanks for being such a joy!!

Project 365

So my friend Sarah has been doing Project 365, and I was determined to start it this year. Now it's mid January, and I'm just now starting it. :( Oh well...better late than never. Guess I'll just be doing Project 341. ;)

For now, here are a couple pics from this year. Be ready...I'll be taking a picture a day!

Six Months Old!!

Dear Sweet Maddie,
Six months?!?! I can't believe a half of a year has already gone by! You have brought SO much excitment into our lives we can't even keep track of time! This month your personality has really started shining through. Everyone constantly says how happy you are and with big smiles like this, how could anyone doubt that?
You are officially sitting up completely on your own without being propped up. Every now and then you get a little too wobbly and fall over. Don't worry, soon enough you'll be able to get yourself back up! Until then it's mommy to the rescue!
Like I said before, you are such a happy baby. You smile all.the.time! Taking pictures is a breeze with you because it is so easy to get you going for the camera. As you can see from your last two pictures, you have been into the big open mouthed smile lately. It's the cutest little toothless grin we've ever seen!!
You are growing so well, too! At your 6 month appointment, you checked in at 15 pounds and 25 1/2 inches! That means you've grown half a foot since birth! Go, Maddie, Go!
You have started eating a jar of baby food at every meal now, and you haven't met a food you don't like...that's my girl! You even impress me with how clean you are when you eat. Most of the time the mess on your bib isn't even from you, it's from me spilling food on it! :)
Here's a little of your personality coming out to play! Haha...actually you are very good about keeping your headband on. You must know how obsessed I am cute you look in them! Grandpa Kurt thought it would be funny take it off and let you play with it...you thought it was some mighty good fun! ;)

We love you so much baby girl! JOY doesn't even begin to cover how we feel about our little family of three.
