Screaming in the jumparoo

I tried to upload a video of Maddie screaming but I couldn't get it to work so here is a link:

If you can't get enough of the exciting jumparoo action here is some jumping and giggling:

6 Months Old

Maddie Rie is 6 months old!!

This is what Madeleine has been up to in the last month:
  • Maddie Rie weighs 15lbs 9oz and is 27 inches long - She had a super growth spurt this month.  Solid food really agrees with her.  She hasn't been to her doctor yet but according to google she is around the 50th percentile for weight and between the 75th and 90th percentile for height.  That is a HUGE jump from last month. 
  • Madeleine is wearing size 2 diapers and is all over the board on what size clothes she wears.  She has a small back and tiny shoulders so she can wear 0-3 tops but needs 6 months for onesies and some 9 month sleepers.
  • She talks  Talks TALKS.  ALL.  THE.  TIME.  Everywhere.  Anywhere.
  • Maddie can sit up on her own for an extended period of time.
  • She can drink out of a sippy cup with a straw.  She looks soooo big doing this!
  • Maddie reaches for EVERYTHING.  I can hardly eat with her sitting in my lap now.
  • She isn't interested in scooting or crawling yet.  She still hates being on her tummy unless she is with her baby friends.  Then she does what the cool kids do.  
  • Maddie sleeps in her room in her crib full time now!  She go to bed around 8 and sleeps about 8 hours straight at night then eats twice before getting up for the day around 9 or 10am.  It's fantastic.
  • Madeleine rolls back to tummy.
  • When she is on her tummy she looks like she is sky diving.  She lifts her arms and legs off the ground and holds them there..
  • Maddie goes to the church nursery during worship now because she likes to scream (all the time....everywhere!).  But she has only made it through the whole service once.  We are working on that.
  • Maddie helped her Mommy and Daddy celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary at the zoo.
  • Madeleine worked on her first arts and crafts project to celebrate her Daddy for Father's Day.  She did great.  I figured that I would need to "guide" her with the finger paints but she was totally into it.
  • She likes sucking on her feet and tries to destroy her pretty socks that have lace or bows on them for fun.
  • Maddie still loves her swimming pool - no matter the temperature of the water.
 Loving the sweet potatoes!

    5 months

      Madeleine Marie is 5 months old now as of June 10th!  Here is what she has been up to the last month:
    • She weighs 13 lbs 8 oz (doubled her birth weight on May 31st).  We worked REALLY hard to do that.  She is in the 15th percentile for weight. But she does have a little chub now!
    • Maddie is 25 1/4 inches long. She is in the 60th percentile for length.
    • Maddie screams and squeals.
    • She is eating solid food.  She LOVES everything but Avocado.
    • She went swimming for the first time and loved it then and continues to love it now!.
    • She attended her first Friends Reunion in Kerrville.
    • She is reaching and grabbing consistently.  We think she is going to be a leftie.
    • Madeleine is wearing in 3-6 month sleepers but still in 0-3 month clothes for anything without feet
    • She is in size 1 diapers
    • Maddie holds her arms out when she wants to be picked up.
    • This is random but she had her toenails clipped for the first time on June 4th (She had one big toe clipped shortly after birth but hadn't needed the rest done until now)
    • She is really in to removing her pacifier, looking at it, then attempting to put it back in, (this is so much fun at night for her mommy)
    • Went on her first road trip (Houston to Kerrville and back again)
    • She loves to read (especially "Where is Baby's Belly Button?")
    • She can sit with support and without support for about 20 seconds
    • She LOVES LOVES LOVES her Jumparoo!
    • Madeleine knows what a bottle is and freaks out when she sees one (empty or full).
    • Now has a decent bed time (10:15pm) but stopped sleeping really well at night.  We were working towards transitioning her to her crib full time but since she decided to stop sleeping through the night it is just easier to leave her in our room.  Sigh...
    • Maddie is terrified of public bathroom air dryers and really loud flushing toilets.  She also intermittently is scared of my hair dryer.
    • She has a curl on top of her head.
