3: Monday, May 4, 2009 Thank you, Gigi and Papaw! The weekend didn't end very well. I woke up Sunday morning and didn't even make it through church. I had a stomach bug and felt HORRIBLE. Madelyn also had a fever again Sunday night :( We ended up staying another night in Talladega and Gigi and Papaw took care of us. We are finally home now and recovering. Thank you for everything, G and P! | Practicing her backbends. | Ruffles, ruffles, ruffles | Soooooo tired! Last night when we got home, I laid her down while I ran her bath water...she couldn't wait that long.

She is growing and developing right on schedule and he even said in the next month or so we can start giving her rice cereal and then veggies and fruits!!! WOO HOO! They also gave her another round of shots. She was upset while they were shooting, but right when I picked her up she fell asleep, so it must not have been too bad ;) We got to the doctor's office about 20 minutes before they opened so we had a carseat photoshoot! | Close UP! | You mean I have to get shots?
