10 Months old

Our little sissy is 10 months old!! I have to admit that the older she gets, the harder it is to get her picture taken with the monkey. This time Daddy was able to distract her a bit, otherwise she would be attacking the monkey or lunging forward off of the chair.

10 Months Old

This picture is for Aunt Ivy - she bought Mady this cute shirt!!
Jeremy gives me this same look when I ask him to do something :)

Miss Mady on St. Patrick's Day. She was more excited to check
the mail at her play house than to have her picture taken.

"What the heck mom - can't you see I'm playing?"
St. Patty's Day at the park - the weather was gorgeous!!
Mady was way more interested in looking at the other kids.

Ater a long day of playing - our little girl crashes hard.
I love this picture because her little behind is sticking up in the air like a bunny.
Mady is learning to do a lot of new things - some of her favorites:
  • Pulling up and cruising on everything
  • Crawling on all fours (she hasn't quite got the hang of this, but it won't be long before we are chasing after her!)
  • Pointing at items or people
  • Giving big wet kisses
  • Listening to herself "talk"

Jeremy and I are both in awe of our little girl and can hardly believe that she'll be a year old in just under two months. It really does seem like yesterday that we brought her into this world!!

A day at the park

The weather here has been really nice lately, so we thought it was time to take Miss Mady to the park. She had a pretty good time I think and we are looking forward to many more trips to the park this spring and summer!!

Mady and her Gigi (my mom)

The slide sure is fun!

Taking a trip down the slide with her Daddy!

Our little girl is getting so big!!

We have been spending a lot of time getting ready for her birthday that's coming up. Its hard to believe that she is going to be a year old already, time sure does fly by when you're having fun!!

Growing too fast

Mady had her 9 month well baby check up yesterday. Everything is looking great!! Her weight gain has slowed a bit, she is only 20 lbs, but she is still very tall at 29 inches long!! She was rather skeptical of her doctor this time, I'm not sure if its the stranger phase she is going through or the fact that she is used to getting shots there that turned her off.

Our little girl is doing new things all the time now. It seems like everyday she accomplishes a new milestone. For a baby that doesn't technically "crawl" she sure can get from one place to another pretty well. Right now she uses a combination of army crawling, pivoting on her belly, and scooting backwards to get where she wants to go.

She has also started clapping - which is pretty cute! Daddy doesn't like it very much because she usually starts clapping when he is trying to feed her dinner and it makes quite the mess. Speaking of food - Mady is trying all sorts of new things. She is a big fan of pancakes, grilled cheese, steamed veggies, puffs, mum mums, meat sticks, yogurt, and all types of fruit. We are so happy that she likes a variety of foods!

Here are a few of my favorite pictures of the month:

9 Month picture with her Monkey.

She loves to stand up like a big girl.

Our version of the Pack N Play - seriously though this is her toy box in the living room and one day she decided it would be more fun to play in the box rather than on the floor.

Sporting her faux hawk.
