Luck of the Irish

Happy St. Patrick's Day from our Little Irish Baby!

After school/work we decided to hang outside in the absolutely GLORIOUS weather.  Madie decided it would be a great time to practice those walking skills.

Occasionally she had to stop and clap!

 Every time she fell she giggled. I absolutely LoVe this about her!  I am going to go ahead and say it is because I sing "Cowgirl Don't Cry" at bedtime, but that is just a hunch.
And here she is LIVE...........


Man oh Man do we LOVE this little girl!  Happy St. Patty's Day!

11 Months Old

Ms. Madie turned 11 months old today!  As an 11 month old, Madie has had many accomplishments.  She has 3 1/2 teeth, has taken 2 steps, says DaDa, Mama, and Ah-choo!  Ms. Madie LoVeS gymnastics the very very best of all.  She does backward rolls, walks on the beam and hangs on the parallell bars. And everytime she does anything, she stops and claps for herself.  Boy does she love to clap!  Madie eats lots of table foods now but her favorite is grilled cheese and sliced avacado.  She really doesn't want to eat anything she doesn't feed herself, little Ms. Independent.  Madie now sleeps with 4 friends - and three of them are bunnies.  She seems to love animals - real ones, stuffed ones, shows with them - you name it.  Actually, it seems everytime she leaves the house with someone she comes home with a new stuffed animal.  And the conversation always goes a little like " well, she just grabbed it and starting hugging it!".  Ha!  Madie loves to laugh and does so A LOT!  She thinks everything is funny these days.  We love her sweet personality and feel so blessed to have her as our sweet angel baby. And in one month it's the big one folks!  Woohoo!

Daddy Time

This weekend I threw a baby shower for my sweet friend Carrie.  We are so excited to have little Payton join the world - I see lots of tea parties in our future. 

Madie was thrilled because she got to have her Daddy all to herself.

Madie has started the Great Bow Revolt.  And she thinks it is HYSTERICAL!

Here are pics from Baby Payton's shower, there was even more pink in our house than normal.  Ha!

Mommy to Be

Lots of pregnant women!  And we all just LOVE getting our picture taken at this point in our lives!  Ha!  Sorry girls - we all have to do the side belly shot.

New Fun

Madie is so EXCITED because Momma got a new camera (dripping with sarcasm). Now we can capture every moment is lightening quick fashion!

Last Saturday Madie was hanging out as she normally does........

When I told her this was the day we were starting, wait for it, GYMNASTICS!!!!!!!

She LOVES it, more details to come on that soon.  :)

Play Date with Coop!

Madie has been SuPeR busy lately, so we are little behind - lots to catch up on!

A couple of weeks ago Madie and I got up on a Saturday morning and headed over to have a play date with Chad and Cooper. It was great fun, Madie loves watching all that her big cousin can do.

He is quiet the chef and cooked for her all morning

Then they had a picnic (yes Kelly - at some point Cooper lost his shirt.  Ha!)

When we got home Madie got super excited because we told her Cooper was coming over for dinner.  Twice in one day Momma?  WOOHOO!
