FC: A smile as sweet as summer | August 2009
1: Saturday, August 1, 2009 Mommy and Daughter Day! Michael is sick (very sick), so Madelyn and I decided to get out of the house today. We went shopping ALL day and she was an angel! We took a break for lunch and went to visit Amanda. Here are a few pics of Madelyn and Karmen checking each other out. | I wish I knew what Karmen was thinking in this picture!
2: August 4, 2009 Tuesday Morning Photoshoot! | This will keep her entertained for minutes! Until she gets mad at it! | She really wanted her cellphone. She needed to call Aunt Amanda and tell her about her new blue outfit! Hmmmm...how can I get that phone?
3: Wednesday, August 5, 2009 What's the Story, Morning Glory? | She isn't the biggest pacifier fan unless she is going to sleep, but this morning she was playing with them like candy. | She was sad to be locked up :) | Loves laughing at her mama! | It isn't easy to make her laugh AND be ready to snap a picture. | Running man! | She looks so little! (She was watching Norman. She still loves him!) | WILD HAIR! | She looks like an angel, but I heard this morning from her teachers that she has a tendency to grab other baby's hair and not let go ;) hehehe
4: the flowers are blooming | Always happy in the morning! | And a little camera shy... | Still trying to crawl. | Almost has that leg up and going forward. | And still thinks it is hilarious! | This is her signature move...tongue out! | She played with this bag of diapers for 30 minutes! | She liked the baby's face...gouging it's eyes out and trying to pull her hair. | HEY! | Working hard. | She is already trying to pull up! She actually took a nose dive straight over the top. | Thursday, August 6, 2009
5: Friday, August 7, 2009 Happy EVERY Morning! | The first night of prunes fed by Daddy...please notice it is from head to toe! | At school we were given a red piece of poster board and asked to decorate it with family pictures. Her teacher said she chose red for Madelyn because she has the most personality in the class ;) Like we didn't already know that! She has more personality, looks, humor and intelligence, too! They are going to hang it up in her classroom, so of course it had to be perfect! Thank you, April, for being our designer! It is PERFECT!
6: On the way to Talladega Saturday morning, Madelyn was playing with her bracelet...she put it on her leg. Everything she does is so cute, she can't help it! | Sunday, August 9, 2009 Sunday morning before church! Today is baptism day! | Getting Ready! We had to put her dress on at church since it was too long to buckle the carseat!
8: sunny days are here again!
9: Tuesday, August 11, 2009 Madelyn started getting a little sickly on Saturday night. She enjoyed her day home with me on Monday AND Tuesday!! Even though she was pitiful yesterday, she still had enough energy to try to crawl! She rocked for about 20 minutes. She can already scoot, so crawling is next. She also started pulling up in her bed, so we have already had to lower it so she doesn't jump out! | Wednesday, August 12, 2009 Our Angel Check out Elana's blog! There are a few teasers from a REAL photoshoot on her blog! Like this one...
10: Madelyn wore her flip flop outfit on the way to the beach Wednesday | She played on the blackberry. | She played with her toes. | She grinned a lot. | She napped a little. | And we only had to stop once to eat!
13: Tuesday, August 18, 2009 Two Loves of My Life | Oh, she SO enjoys baths more than she used to! She loves her new bath letters and numbers! | Say "CLEEEAAAANNNN!!!!" | The mirror, counter, floor and Daddy were soaking wet! | Friday, August 21, 2009 Purple PJs! Gettin' ready for bed. Still chewing on the bath letters. | She can scoot and she loves to get close to the table and scare her daddy ;)
14: Friday, August 21, 2009 Good Morning! This morning she slept LATE! I went up to check on her at 7am and she was still OUT! | Saturday, August 22, 2009 Growing Up Too Fast! I have caught Madelyn a few times trying to pull up in her bed. So today we lowered her mattress so she can't fall out! While MJ took the bed apart, Madelyn and I played in the floor.
15: Ta DAAAA! We changed the sheet to green, too. It is like a new bed! | She loves pulling the bumper down and looking through the bars | This is a CAGE, not a BED! | Ugh, how am I going to get out of here now! | Peek-a-boo! | Daddy took her to school this morning. I took a few pictures of her getting in the truck. | Tomorrow she will be 7 months old! I just can't believe it. So tonight before bath time I weighed and measured her. She is 15.4 lbs and 26 inches long! She is also eating a lot more now. She has always had a healthy appetite, but lately (in the past few weeks) she has really started increasing her intake! Her teacher told us today that she is shocked how much she can eat! Her favorites are bananas and prunes :)
16: Wednesday, August 26, 2009 | She doesn't lay on her back much anymore. She is way too interested in MOVING. But when she does...she always goes for the toes. | HAPPY 7 MONTH BIRTHDAY!!! | She has started showing her sass. When she isn't happy (doesn't want to sit in her swing, isn't getting fed quick enough, bored, etc) she scrunches her face up and breathes out of her nose really fast. I will post a short video of it. It is hilarious! I believe we are going to have our hands full with this one! | Last night - Sweet Potatoes and Turkey. She was sad when it ended. But then we had bananas and pears for dessert! YUM!
17: Photo Shoot #479 The outfit was too cute not to have a photo shoot this morning. I turned on the red eye reduction setting on my camera and now every time I snap a shot, she has time to look away. Very frustrating, I might have to turn the setting back off! | She said WHAT? | She hit herself in the mouth with this rattle twice, so she bit back. | Toys? Just give me a chair leg! | Wish she would have put that laundry away in the background. | "What am I supposed to do with this?" | Funny Girl | Wait, what is this? Where did this bow come from? | I tricked her and finally got her to look AT the camera. | She likes to get up on her feet and hands instead of her knees. She wants to walk! | Hey, Mommy! | I'm gonna get you! | ATTACK OF THE BABY! | Almost standing up!
18: Friday August 28, 2009 | Time to Child Proof! | We could NOT believe it! As soon as she started pulling up MJ grabbed the camera! | 7 months and PULLING UP! | She stood up there a while, but I don't think she knew how to get down. | We moved her over by the ottoman so she wouldn't bump her head. | I was waving a toy so she would look for the camera and MJ looked too ;)
19: Sunday August 30, 2009 | "For the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers are springing up and the time of the singing of birds has come. Yes, spring is here." ~ Song of Solomon 2:11-12 | Still practicing pulling up and crawling around. She can also now sit back up once she is on her tummy. She's not stuck anymore! | She was trying to pull up on the swing. But it kept moving. | Would you like fries with that? We went to Sweet Bones Alabama after Babypalooza and she ate her first FRENCH FRY! And her second and her third...She loved them! We also went to the Summit. She loves to stand up in the buggy. | Playing in her toy box | Papaw, Gigi and Amanda came over to cook out Sunday. Madelyn ate first - orchard blend sweet potatoes, carrot/apple and pears.
