Great day!

I just love these girls. We had a super great Saturday, not a thing on our schedule.  We were lazy the first part of the day and then I cleaned, vacuumed, dusted, did the dishes and laundry while Alex went outside and did tons of yard work. He and Lexie made 3 trips to the dump. Lexie LOVED it! She was very sad when it was time to come in for dinner.

Well this little bundle of joy has decided that she was done nursing. She wants nothing to do with it what so ever! With Lexie I slowly weened her off a little at a time and when we stopped at 13 months I was only nursing 1 time a day anyway. Not so with Madilynn. It went from 4-8 times in a 24 hour period to NONE! I guess at 7 and 1/2 months she knows what she wants....don't worry about me and my wants.

On a side note she is a great eater!!! She eats everything we give her......sweet potatoes, carrots, peas, green beans, prunes, pears, peaches....everything! I think I'm gonna start her on some meats.....this should be interesting!

Little people everywhere!!

Ever since we found out Madilynn had dwarfism we have tried really hard to get Lexie involved in the LP world (from TV shows to Little People of America regionals) so it wouldn't be so different to grow up with a sister who is not average height!  Well I can say she feels quite comfortable with that community and isn't shy at all.  While at the store the other day I had both girls and we walked past a man who had dwarfism (not achondroplasia like Madilynn, but some kind of dwarfism).  As we past him I smiled and kept on walking, but as soon as Lexie saw him she got SUPER excited and said screamed "Hey mom......(pointing the whole time)....there's a little person!  HI LITTLE PERSON!!  LITTLE PERSON....HI!!!"  I was so embarrassed and proud all at the same time.  He never even looked up at us, just kept on his merry way (hope he could see her excitement).

Lift'n my big head

It is a known fact that Achon babies have big heads and it takes a while to lift them up so we've done some tummy time exercises to help Madilynn work those muscles! It has really paid off and she is doing so well! The last 2 weeks I've seen a huge improvement and she gets so proud of herself, I love it! Now she's even getting her arms in the action and pushing herself up.....what a doll!!!  Here are just a few pictures from the last few days......

Designing Headers

I am addicted to switching up my blog. I love making the header and then adding the background so everything matches just right. I bought 13 new kits (all on clearance for less than $1 each)and I'm gonna change it up monthly.......super excited!

A new chapter!

My little sunshine is starting preschool. She is sooooo excited! A new chapter that is so great for mommy.....and Lexie!


We went on a walk the other day, there are horses and a fruitstand about 2 blocks away from us so we usually go over to them to get out of the house. My girls love it and it's a great way to get some air!
