Tummy Time

Miss Madeline is really starting to like her tummy time! Maybe she will crawl one of these days! Great Grandma Erma did you notice the outfit? I put one of your crochet hearts on a top.
I think it looks pretty cute! I'm sad Madeline has outgrown the matching jeans.

Mail Call!

Today Little Sick Madeline received a huge package in the mail. She was super excited to see what might be inside. It is so hard to open she even tried to gum it open. (no teeth yet) Finally with a little help from Mom she opened the package to find a beautiful new dress from Grandpa and Grandma Searl. It fits so perfect. Madeline already has the most perfect hair bow to match and socks! I am a little bit nervous because she is way to happy with new clothes. I think we might have a problem on our hands. :)

As a side note, Madeline seems to be feeling great and she loves her antibiotics! She sucks that medicine tube dry! What a trooper.

8 Months Old!

I found this picture on the Internet. No this is not Madeline but this is what she looked like..but smiling!
Yes our little princess is 8 months old! I can't believe how time flies. Well...Madeline has been sick with a cold for almost 2 weeks now. I decided it was time to see the doctor. We left at 8:30 this morning to start our adventure. After getting weighed ( 20 pounds 9 ounces-88th percentile) and measured (28.25 inches tall 88th percentile) we saw the doctor. After he listened and listened to Madeline's chest and lungs he said he was a wee bit concerned because she was breathing rather quickly. (50 times a minute instead of the usual 30 times a minute) So he sent us off to radiology for chest x-rays. I don't know if you guys know how they do 8 month old chest x-rays, but they put them in a clear tube with their arms above their heads. It is quite funny and very mean looking. I found this picture on the Internet. No this is not Madeline but this is what she looked like..but smiling!
But of course our super Madeline didn't cry. (The x-ray lady said she was the first baby she had ever x-rayed that didn't cry!) We got dressed and headed back to see the doctor. He came out and told us one x-ray was blurry so we headed back to radiology. This time Madeline let out one big cry and then was fine. I love this girl! Then we went back and waited, and waited, and waited for the doctor. Finally, he said no pneumonia but a bacterial infection. So Madeline is now on her first medicine, an antibiotic. I didn't take 8 month pictures of my princess yet. I am waiting for a no runny nose day. We finally got home from the doctors office at 12:00pm! Madeline had missed her morning nap and was ready for lunch. So she had lunch and took a short nap and now we are playing on the floor. I sure hope she takes a nice long afternoon nap!
