BC: Happy Valentine's Day!
FC: February 2010
1: Monday, February 1, 2010 Happy Monday! | She looks sneaky... | This picture may have just made me decide to get her haircut immediately. | Cutie, already trying to learn her numbers ;) | APPLAUSE! | "Hello?" | Loving on Elmo. | Her face in this pic looks like her ultrasound almost a year and half ago! | Sometimes she just stops playing and starts loving on the closest baby. | This picture shows her pretty little head. Perfect little angel.
2: I love you | Wednesday, February 3, 2010 It's Official! Yesterday, Madelyn was 1 year and 1 week old and today...she is officially only on whole milk (sippy cups only) and big girl food! It kind of makes her seem older to me. She's not a little baby anymore if she can eat and drink the same thing an adult can. She dumped all the balls out of the pit and then laughed as Daddy picked them up ;) hehehe I love her sense of humor!
3: These were from Thursday evening after dinner. | Friday, February 5, 2010 Not Rainy Inside! Today it is yucky and raining outside, but it is warm and fun inside! This afternoon we are heading to Talladega to visit Gigi and Papaw! | Talladega Saturday #1 I took a lot of pics while we were in Talladega. We did not do much (outside of the house) but we had a wonderful weekend spending time with Gigi, Papaw and Amanda | She played with this Tylenol bottle like a rattle...until she hurt her gums on it. She was dancing and laughing in this pic... | Talladega Saturday #2 Little angel doesn't like to be told 'no'. She can turn the tears on! She can turn it off just as quick! Papaw won't let her cry for long. He saves the day :)
4: Always thinking of you... | Talladega Saturday #3 She saw Gigi eating a moon pie! Her eyes lit up | Begging. | Yummm! | Please!! | Here it comes! | Talladega Saturday #4 Fridge magnets and cabinets! | Talladega Saturday #5 (bathtime)
5: More Talladega Pics
6: Toddle toddle toddle, she is walking EVERY WHERE! She is also trying to say words. This morning she said "da" when I pointed at the dogs. Or maybe she was saying 'door'? She is into everything. They are teaching her sign language at school and she will sign 'please' when she is hungry. So polite! She can also sign 'milk', 'all done' (and she says 'ah da') and 'bye'. | Wednesday February 10, 2010 Ode to St. Valentine Madelyn decided to wear hearts every day this week...in honor of St. Valentine. | Friday February 12, 2010 Madelyn wore her Valentine outfit she got for her birthday from Papaw and Gigi. Very warm and a perfect day for it! She only went to school until 11:30am today because of SNOW | She loves to take the blocks out and put them back in, but she gets frustrated when she can't figure out which hole to put it in, so she uses the door. She also puts other things in there, like valentines, socks, hair bows, etc.
7: I can not believe Madelyn is 1 year old and has already seen snow more than some southerners see in a lifetime! When we got home I was giving her animal cookies and she told me 'more please' in sign language. I gave her one and then she said 'thank you' in sign language! I was astonished. We were looking out the door and I whistled for the dogs and said "Come here dogs!" and she blew like she was whistling and said 'da'! She amazes me every day. | She loves to play in the kitchen floor while we are cooking or cleaning in there. We looked at her last night and she was rolling, laying and playing. She is so funny! | Saturday February 13, 2010 Neat Sheet! Who would have thought a colorful piece of plastic would be so fun! | Instructions? | Twister? | Amanda babysat for us Saturday night so MJ and I could go out for Valentine's dinner. Madelyn ate by the door so she could watch for her to get here. She wouldn't stop asking "When is Amanda getting here?" She didn't get to see her. Madelyn skipped her afternoon nap so she went to sleep a little early :( "Is that her?" Nope, just a dog.
8: Maw and Paw Amanda is not only a babysitter, she is also a photographer | More sign language! ("more" "eat" "thank you") How did we ever know what she wanted before she could tell us??? | Gigi and Papaw came to visit for Valentine's day. | A few pics of my favorite things of my grandmama's. In the next few days, every room in my house will have a piece of her in them.
9: If I had to choose between loving you and breathing, I would use my last breath to say I LOVE YOU. | "Oh no she did NOT!" | I took her skirt off before dinner and she looked just like a ballerina! | She holds the phone just like she is talking for real! | "Can't you see I am on the phone?" | "Wait, she said what?" | Madelyn woke up this morning and immediately started playing with her Valentines gifts...and boxes | Monday, February 15, 2010 PARTYYYY!!!! Valentine bags for each little darling. Everyone brought valentines for their friends!
10: Monday, February 15, 2010 More hugging! We gave Madelyn a white bear for Valentines. She wasn't into it at all yesterday, but tonight she hugged on it and carried it around for a while. | Then back to the chocolate rose boxes and velvet bag.
11: I will love you forever and ever and ever and... | It was a balancing act. For those of you who don't recognize where she is, this is above the kitchen sink.
12: Be Mine | Saturday February 20, 2010 Loving this weather! Friday afternoon was beautiful! We spent a little while outside with the pups and enjoyed the weather.
13: Feb 20, Saturday night all the gals (and families) met at Weezie and Damon's and then went out to eat. We had a wonderful time! It was a late night for Madelyn, but she was so good!! | She immediately held her arms out to go to Weez before we even got in the front door! | Thanks to the other girls we chose Dodiyos for dinner. EXCELLENT choice! We had a room to ourselves where the kids could be kids. And the food was SO good! And Sara and Ryan told us they were expecting a baby in Sept!
14: Tuesday, February 23, 2010 What is this? A fork? I read last night that it is time to start introducing utensils. So this morning I offered Madelyn a fork...ummm...how did she already know how to use it? | She saw me eating a bowl of cereal and wanted to try herself. So she used an empty Tupperware container and a big girl spoon... | While we were cooking last night, Madelyn was playing in the floor with spoons and little toys she keeps in her Tupperware containers...but then her attention was diverted. | Thursday, February 25, 2010 Rolling on the Bed! This morning Madelyn was especially happy! We ate breakfast, read a book and played chase on the bed. | Daddy on one side, Mama on the other and Baby in the middle! | She loves to roll and dive. I will pick her up and Ka..Ka..Kaaaaa BOOOOMM!!! Throw her on the pillows!
16: I love you, not for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. | Talladega Sick Baby Weekend Feb 26 - 28
17: Friday Night Bath Time
18: Anyone can be passionate, but it takes real lovers to be silly.
19: You being in my arms, heart by heart feels like our love would never end. | XOXO
20: I'm so grateful to have you in my life!
21: You know you're in love when reality is finally better than your dreams.
