Beach Trip

 1st time in the sand with Mommy 
 LOVING the pool 
 Cheesy smile 
Not so sure about the sand 

     Last week we drove 6+ hours to Wilmington NC to visit your dad's great aunt and uncle. It wasn't such a great idea to leave at 7pm to drive but you did great in the jeep, slept the whole way there. After 2 days in the pool and walking around town we fell in love with the city. Even looked at a model home, if your daddy could find a job down there we would pack up and move tomorrow! Saturday morning we drove 7+ hrs to the Outer Banks, it was only supposed to be a 5 hr drive but we got stuck in traffic on hwy 12. You did such a great job in the car that we went straight to the toy store after lunch and bought you toy, you smile really big for your new butterfly that giggles. The 1st time we took you to the beach you weren't so sure about the sand in between your toes, it could be that it was your nap time. Once I put you in the water you had had enough, fell right asleep under the umbrella and took a nap for an hour. On day #3 you saw your first water spout and it started to rain, but it cleared up just in time for all of us to walk down to the beach. We all wrote messages on shells and through them into the ocean for your paw. You would of loved him baby girl, he sure was an amazing man, and you have his beautiful eyes. We love you sweetheart!

Happy 6th Month Madeline

 1st homemade baby food. Sweet Potatoes 7.19.12
 Happy 1st Fourth of July 
Bath Time after your baby food! 

Dear Madeline Grace, 

      I can't believe that your already 1/2 a year old, time sure does fly by! Every morning I walk into your room and say good morning while your still sleeping and I can't stop staring at you, your honestly the most perfect baby out there! I love that I get to take you to work with me and I get to see you learn new things. You haven't started rolling yet, but you love to sleep on your side, as soon as we put you on your back you roll right over! We are practicing sitting and standing and your doing a great job with both, before we know you will be moving around and we will all be in trouble. Yesterday you had your 6th month appointment and you were 19 lbs 3oz (96%) and 28 inches long (99%) and the Dr said your a very healthy and happy girl! We also got to the green light for you to start baby food which I am so excited about. You did great with your sweet potatoes so I have no fear that you will love all the new foods that you will be trying in the months to come. Last night was rough, as you officially have your 1st cold. Your little nose is so stuffed up its hard for you to breathe, so even with tylenol you were up every couple hours, and you seem to have a little cough as well. I will add your 6th month sticker photo later, once you wake up, and I will let you sleep as long as possible before we leave for the day. Next week we are headed to Wilmington NC to visit your dad's great aunt and uncle and then to the Outer Banks for a week! So excited to take you to the beach, hopefully you love it as much as your mommy does! There will also be a pool which you love don't worry baby, we will have fun even if we spend the week poolside. I should probably start planning your 1st birthday now because you know your mommy wants it to be perfect for her little girl! 

    We love you Maddie Grace! Heres to the best 6 months of our lives so far! 

                                                                Love, Daddy & Mommy
