Christmas Pictures

We had our pictures done for Christmas and unfortunately, in the loud open room we were in, Madeline had a hard time focusing on the photographer. I think we only caught a couple smiles, but there are still some pretty fun pictures.

9 Month Update

Madeline had her 9 month check up last week and she is still the picture of perfect health. She is in the 90th percentile for height and 65th percentile for weight. She got her first tooth (technically in her 10th month) and it was followed by her 2nd tooth - bottom center. She was obsessed with her tongue and sticking it out and making noises with it this month. She is standing quite a bit with the help of a sturdy object and has started getting up on all fours and rocking back and forth.

8 Months

This has been a fun month for us. Madeline has started being able to pick up and feed herself small pieces of food. She doesn't have any teeth yet, and I am in no hurry for them! She rolls herself all around the house and I think she will be crawling very soon. Madeline is very affectionate and now gives her mom and dad slobbery kisses and hugs.

7 Months

Madeline has been busy this month. We went to visit our good friends in Indianapolis and she did great on the plane. She loved playing with their little girl Reagan and would squeal with delight when she saw her. She has eaten her way through every new flavor of baby food available at the store and she does well with everything except bananas (just like her mama). She even likes eating herbs from our garden. Jef has started making her baby food at home as well. She has started playing with drinking out of a sippy cup, but prefers drinking from regular cups (with help of course). Madeline is sitting up without support and picking up heavier toys with no problem. She is truly a delight and has added so much happiness to our lives. I look forward to every morning, getting to go into her room and see the big smile on her face.
(We had to get a shot of her in her snowsuit since she will probably outgrow it before winter.)
