Once again, bad Mommy!!!! It has been a while since I posted on here. My baby is rapidly turning into a little girl! She has been doing so many funny things. People who know me well know that I am not girly at all. My child however is doing many girly things. She will take my makeup brushes and use them on her face, she will take pots of eyeshadow (closed of course) and rub it on her face, she rubs lotion on her face and says "oooh pretty," she knows how to carry a purse and when I put a tiara on her she stood in front of the mirror batting her eyelashes and saying pretty. Thankfully she will also shake her head back and forth and say "I crazy!" She knows the value of a comedic act and she is SO loving and generous. At her baby cousin's 1st birthday she went up to every child (some of which she had never met) and made sure that each child had a toy to play with and would give them a hug if they let her. Her amazing acts of kindness touch my heart in a way that I never thought was possible.
At her 18 month check up she weighed 25.3 lbs and is 32 inches long. Dr Malone is very pleased with her progress and he loves getting hugs from her.
Her vocabulary is exploding!!!! Here are some of the words she is saying:
Dadje (daddy)
I Crazy (weird I know)
Ditee (Dixie, her best buddy and our Lab)
Peeze (please)
Hi ________
Ooh oh!!!
Poop (sometimes I Poop)
Nana (bananna)
Nona (I think she is going to call my mom that)
She is working on Kendell, it comes out Kanda now
Juuce (juice)
nak (snack)
Dorda (Dora)
Daigo (go diego go)
Oh man!!! (from Dora)
Bush (toothbrush)
Muth (mouth)
Wing (swing)
Side (slide)

This is not a complete list. I'll have to work on that.

She loves to brush her teeth, hates to have her hair messed with!
1st haircut on March 23rd from my close friend Jeannie. It looks amazing!!!!
She is cutting the upper canine teeth and that should be it until the 2 year molars come in.
She had her first visit with her dentist Dr Gatrey in February and it went very well.

Yikes!!!! I have not posted since Madison's cousin was born and that was 8 months ago! Bad Mommy!!!! So much has happened. I will do a simple list to get caught up.
June 14th: Madison's first step! She had pulled herself up on the cedar chest and was cruising around. I walked by and jokingly said "walk to Mama" and she did!!!! After that getting her to walk was still a slow process because she crawled very well. By her birthday she still was not walking full time but by 13 months she was walking slowly and by 15 months she was running!
Madison's first birthday: Wow! I think the event was almost as big as mine and the Hubby's wedding! It was held at Tannehill State Park at the school house. So many people were there to show their love for her. The theme was hot pink and zebra stripe. Peggy made a huge and beautiful cake for her and she had her own to destroy. LOL!!!!
At one year: Madison's length was 29.5, weight 23.1 lbs. She could say Mama, Dada, CAT (always loudly), and bye bye. Favorite books were Goodnight Gorilla, That's Not My Baby (and Dog). She quit the bottle cold turkey on July 19th.
At 13 months she was totally weened off of breastfeeding.
At 15 months: She started calling her little baby cousin Kat-Kat and she loves her so much. When she sees her she has to hug and kiss her. At her 15 month check up she was 23.1 lbs and 31 in long.
At 16 months: Madison loves to put shoes on! It can be her own shoes or Mommy or Daddy's shoes. She can really dance! Child has more rhythm than I could ever have.
She has four upper front teeth, four lower front teeth, upper and lower left molars and the lower right one is just about to pop through.
Bad news at 16 months: Madison had her first ear infection and sinus infection which led to her first time to take antibiotics. Amoxicillin did not work at all, Omnicef worked but gave her horrible poops with led to her first bout of diaper rash. Now as of 11-22-10 she has started liquid z-pack.
New words include: "Oh nooooo," "no" and that one gets said a lot! She says lots of stuff but we just cannot figure out what she is saying. Lots of tone changes and expression but no idea. She says something that sounds like either "I pee" but she has not tinkled or "ah pee" with a heavy accent on the ahhh sound. As Auburn fans we would like to believe that she is saying Aubie but I kinda doubt that. She will say Dixie (our wonderful Lab) but not a lot. She hugs and kisses everyone! She is also blowing kisses. I am sure I have missed lots but hopefully I will get back and fill in the blanks.

Wow!!! Madison is now 9 months old!!! She has been out as long as she was in. LOL!!! She had her check up with the g.i. doctor and it seems that she is starting to outgrow the reflux! YEA!!! When she goes back in three months they are going to wean her off the medication. Her 9 month check up with Dr. Malone was the next day. Everything was perfect! She weighed 19.7 lbs and was 28 inches long. She is baby talking up a storm. I would love to know what she is saying. LOL!
4-22-10 Madison has her first cold or infection. Boo! She is so congested that she can hardly breathe. She is running a low grade fever too. We will be at the pediatrician when they open at 9:00. Poor pitiful little bit.

A new cousin!!!!

March 20th: Madison went to her first concert! The Alabama Bluegrass Hall of Fame. She listened to Three on a String. She loved it! That night we got a call from Aunt Kendell letting us know that she was in labor. This ended up being Madison's first night away from home. She got to spend the night with Grammy and Papa. She did great for them and had a great time getting into everything. I missed her like crazy!!!!

March 21st: Madison's cousin Katharine Storey Potts was born at 11:46am weighing 6lbs 8oz and 20 inches long. I am sure that they will be great buddies!

Madison is still crawling extremely fast and will pull up on anything. She can do a chin up on some stuff! Her hair is down to her shoulders and it seems that those blue eyes are going to stay blue. :)

The two little teeth are all the way out now! They are just too cute! Last night she pulled herself up on the footboard of the bed and was walking a little while holding on to the footboard. Most of the time she crawls all the way and is not doing the sniper crawl anymore. She is also making lots of new funny noises.

7 months old!!!!

Yesterday Madison turned 7 months old! She now has two little teeth that have emerged from the gum line. She is still crawling but most of the time she looks more like a sniper creeping around. She can pull herself up to her knees so I had to remove the bassinett part of the pack n play. She is still "talking" up a storm. Dada and dede are used frequently.

DA DA!!!!!

I finally got Madison to say dada!!!! She has been saying mama and I did not want Rocky to feel left out. When she was saying mama it was just a fluke according to Rocky but he has not mentioned that again since it is his turn. LOL!!!! She gets so excited saying dada and dededede.
She is loving the yogurt melts and puffs. She tries to feed herself and she might get the odd puff in her mouth.
This is such of an exciting stage for her it seems like she does something new every day!!!!
