Madi's Doctor Appointment

Well, we took Madison to the doctor yesterday and she got her first shots! It was so terrible watching her cry as they gave them to her, but she only cried for a couple of seconds and was fine. In fact, she went right to sleep. She did so well. She has been sleeping it off ever since. And she is sooo very happy when she is awake, you'd never know the "trauma" she went through. :0) Madi is growing so quickly too! She weighs 10 lb 14 oz now and is 23 inches long! The doctor says she is the perfect weight and is perfectly healthy! She is doing great.

Madison has been chatting it up more often too! Now, when I look at her and smile, she smiles back at me. Then she starts telling me about her day in her adorable baby talk. :) Madi even manages to occasionally roll on her side. When we play on her play mat, she sometimes gets so excited she winds up on her side. I don't even think she knows how it happens! She is growing so quickly... I just can't believe it. Being parents is the greatest blessing of our lives. It is amazing to be a family!

Great New Pics!!

Hey Everyone!

My friend Kellie came over and took some new pictures of Madison and I just can't wait to share them with everyone. Madi looks so adorable! These are just a few, there are many more to come! Kellie does such a great with her photography business.

Madi is growing like a weed. :) She is 6 weeks old today! You can see in her pictures that she is holding her head up so well now. She needs help sometimes but before too long she'll be able to do it all by herself. Josh and I are having a blast watching her learn new things. This week she has been cooing and smiling so often. She loves to talk to Josh during middle of the night diaper changes.

I hope you enjoy the pictures!!!

Welcome to our new blog!

So I decided to go ahead and make one of these so that way I could keep everyone up to date with the new things in our life! I will try and post lots of pictures and keep you informed with how Madison is growing and changing!

Madison is now a month old now! I can't believe how fast she is growing. She has gotten so big. You can tell that Madi will be tall when she gets older. She is so long! Madi has been learning so many new things... she has been smiling (not quite in response to anyone or anything yet, but hey thats not important :) ), she has been holding her head up for very long periods of time, and she has even turned herself on her side! Madi is also getting pretty good at using her legs! She pushes herself off of surfaces with her feet. :) We go back to the doctor in a couple weeks so I will have to let you know about her weight and everything then. She is eating like a champion so I am sure she is putting on weight like she should!

We also went on our first family dinner this week! I am so glad that we are past the four week mark so Madi and I can take a few trips out of the house! We are still taking it easy though to make sure she doesn't pick up any colds or sickness. Madi also had her first bottle this week! We are feeding her one bottle right before bed. It seems to help her get a better night's sleep. She doesn't mind Daddy feeding her once and a while! :) And he loves it too!
