4 months

Our sweet little girl is 4 months old!  Time really needs to slow down.  She is changing so fast.

Madeleine was very cooperative this month for her pictures and I couldn't narrow down my pictures any further!
  • She weighs 11 lbs 9 oz
  • On April 19th, at 13 weeks, she hit her father's birth weight (10 lbs 11 oz).  His mother is superwoman.  I can't even imagine. 
  • She is quite the giggler - especially for her daddy
  • Wearing 0-3 month clothes
  • In size 1 diapers
  • Is gaining an interest in things other than her parents holding her
  • She spent two weeks being loved on by her RieRie while mommy went back to work.  I'm pretty sure they are both totally smitten with each other.
  • Maddie is gaining interest in toys especially soft things she can pull to her mouth
  • She LOVES to stand
  • She  LOVES playing with her tongue 
  • Maddie now officially has a stay at home mom (CRAZY!)
  • She is sooo expressive.  Her eyebrows say so much.  She never leaves us wondering if she is happy or sad
  • Madeleine has started doing some reaching for things on her tray while sitting in her bumbo (Rie Rie taught her that neat trick!).
  • She sleeps great at night 7-9 hours but only catnaps during the day. 
  • Maddie has started some separation anxiety from mommy.
  • She visited the zoo for the first time (she was up for the gardens, slept through most of the animals, then had a total meltdown and we left!).
  •  She fake coughs.
  • After she sneezes she says Ooooo every single time.  It cracks us up.
  • Met the Easter Bunny with her baby friends then celebrated her first Easter.
  • Talks ALL THE TIME.
  • Continues to make sure that her parents fall more and more in love with her every day.
  • Celebrated our first Mother's Day - Maddie gave Mommy an iphone!  She is so sweet.
I love Rie Rie

3 months - April 10th - Better late than never!

Madeleine Marie is 3 months old and we are falling more and more in love with her everyday!  She has really blossomed this last month.  She has gone from a sleepy newborn to an interactive little smile machine.  Here is what Maddie has been up to this last month:
  • Madeleine smiles smiles smiles.  Often time with her tongue out too.
  • She talks and coos all the time.  Her range of noises cracks us up (lip smacking, screaming, razzing, ooing and aahing and pretty much anything else you can think of).
  • She has started doing some breathy gulpy laughs.
  • She is still a tiny little thing.  But is growing and gaining weight at her own pace. 10 lbs 2 oz
  • She has been to Sugar Land and met lots of family as well as lots of friends.
  • She got sick for the first time with bronchitis while we were in Texas and went on her first medications.  She will eat anything and gladly sucked down steroids and antibiotics enthusiastically. 
  • She has started consistently responding to her toys and really enjoys her play gym, bouncy seat, swing, and bumbo seat.
  • Her favorite toy though is whatever her parents are holding.  She much prefers playing with us than alone.  I'll gladly oblige!
