Just Cause

Madilynn loves putting on this little crown. I love to watch her play with it, she is a princess isn't she!?! Our little princess is 13 months old, can you believe how the time flies!?!? She's 17 lbs and 26.5 Inches. She has her 3rd tooth coming in (the first one on the top) and has started pulling herself into the sitting position on an almost round the clock basis. She knows where her nose is when you ask her (most of the time) and loves to raise her hands up when you ask her how big she is (that's her reply for "so big")  She is our joy!!!!

On an entirely different note, we have started painting our house. This is our balcony which hasn't been painted in several years. Lexie is our artist so she was out there the whole time!! Its gonna take several weekends for us to complete the whole house but I'm excited it's started!

Just another weekend

I think for the rest of our lives we will be visiting some Dr. or another. This last weekend Madilynn and I were in the hospital for a follow up MRI. We got there on Thursday night and got to stay with Courtney and Scott and had so much fun!! Thurs we went to Sushi (it was SOOOOO GOOD!!) and then started a movie. We were all super tired so we didn't finish it and went to bed. Friday morning we were at the hospital at 715a for the MRI. Madilynn was so hungry and did so good but the last 15 minutes was terrible. We walked the halls and I started singing to her "Where is pointer?" and through her cries she raised her index finger, it was so funny. We finally walked to the MRI area and she is old enough now to know if something is strange or different and she started crying, of course looking at me with those sad "save me" eyes I started to cry. Within seconds she was knocked out though. This was a much shorter MRI (if you don't remember our last one go here and scroll to the bottom and read it from the bottom to top) and we were out of there in no time.  Here is the recovery room still OUT!

She woke up and we dressed her and gave her something to drink and they took the IV out.

Then we went back to Scott and Courtney's house (I'm so sad I didn't get one picture of them or us together) and hung out while Madilynn napped.  Then off to visit one of our LP family.  We had so much fun with Katy and her family.

Then we were off to the sleep study.  (or should I say no sleep sleep study)  they strap her up to a ton of wires and then say go sleep.  So I finally get her to sleep and then something falls off and they put it back on and she wakes up again, this went on ALL NIGHT!  around 2 she fell asleep and didn't wake back up until 600a when they woke us up.  I was so tired but happy to leave.

We met up with part of my family who went to a big Flea Market, all the girls bought matching hats.
Boy was I glad to be home!!!

Oh my goodness!!

Madilyyn has been climbing lately, alot. My closet has a step that goes into it and she loves going up and down that one step. It's been so cute and a little exciting that she is getting closer to sitting. She can sit while I'm behind her (in case of any sudden tip overs) but today I saw this...... She's climbing on her little chair.....

I left for no more than 2 minutes and came back to see this.........

she got up to a sitting position all by herself, of course she doesn't know how to get back down to a laying position (luckily I was there to catch her cause she just tipped over). So proud of our little lady!! Nice work (and it was work, she was sweating when she was done!)
