Halloween Party

Today we had a Halloween Party at The Little Gym. It was really nicely done and I know all the babies and kids had fun. Here are some pics of Madeleine all dressed up!

Her expression here cracks me up.

 How cute is this costume? :)

9 Months Old!

Madeleine is 9 months old today! Can you believe it? I hardly can. We had a rough start but every day just keeps getting better, and more fun! We are so blessed to have such a wonderful, happy, smart, determined, curious, active and loving baby girl. Cam and I are so proud of her and love her so very much. 

Here are 9 month photo shoot pics!

Pumpkin Patch

We took M to the Pumpkin Patch on John's Island today. I brought her Halloween costume and a couple outfits for a photo shoot but she wasn't very cooperative so these are the best shots from the day. She just wouldn't look at the camera or smile. She's still super cute though, as you can see!

I might try again this week because I really want a few fun photos with her in her costume!

We have our hands full

Little M isn't quite 9 months old yet and she is already a hand full. She cracks me up. We are so lucky to have such a curious, determined, fearless, smart, and happy baby... Even if it means I have to watch her every move!

Outlets are all covered but she still pulls out the night-lights.
Trying to stand up in the tub and hit her head on the faucet at the same time.
Pulling everything off her bookshelf.
Standing on furniture.
Climbing IN the furniture.
Turning over her toy box on top of herself.

Love you M!

Catching Up

I feel like I am always playing catch up with this blog but we have had a busy few weeks. M and I went to MD to visit Mommom and Poppop and I was in my best friend Gen's wedding on the 29th. It was a beautiful wedding and it was so special seeing one of my oldest friends get married. She was the prettiest bride ever! Congratulations Gen & Nick! Once we got back to CHS, M had an 8m weight check at the pediatrician. She is doing great, meeting all her milestones and now gaining plenty of weight. She is still on the small end of the scale but she is healthy and growing! He did, however, find a heart murmur. He didn't think it was anything serious because it's very faint but thought we should have it checked out at MUSC Children's Hospital. They did an ekg AND an echocardiogram, which envolved M laying down on a table for an hour while a technician took an ultrasound of her heart. Since M is the best baby ever, she didn't shed a single tear and was pretty cooperative. It's not easy keeping a very active 8m old still! Thankfully, everything is fine and it is just an innocent murmur. 

This past week has been a little calmer with our usual Babygarten, Mommy & Me Yoga, and The Little Gym. I have a bunch of photos I want to share but here are some from today. This is my sweet girl waking up from her nap... Such a happy girl!

 Notice the 2 bottom teeth! One has broken through on top and another is on the way. She has been just a little fussy but not too bad. Just look at this face!

Always has the tongue out!

A few weeks ago, we went on our first family road trip to Atlanta. We had planned to go to Bark in the Park (Braves baseball game where you can bring your dog) but they switched the time of the game to 8 p.m. which is just too late for M. But we decided to visit the ATL anyway since we hadn't been in a long time (6 yrs for me!).

We had a great trip and enjoyed catching up with old friends and showing off M. We also took Riley to 2 different dog parks. When we lived in ATL we used to take Riley to Piedmont Park all the time so it was nice to take him back there again. We also showed M where we used to live and where Cammy and I met over 8 years ago! Wow, how things have changed!

Here are some photos from the trip...

 M was not really a fan of sitting in the itchy grass... such a girl!
 My loves!!! 
 We took Riley to another really nice dog park north of ATL.
 Even Spider-Man loves Riley!

We just got back from 2 weeks at Mommom and Poppops house. I have a bunch of photos I want to upload but for now, here is a video of M  cracking up.

I'm behind on blogging again so I just wanted to upload some recent photos of M (and Riley too). 

M is sitting up now in her crib. Soon, she'll be standing up! 

Seriously, the happiest baby ever.

Riley got a new toy and M was interested in it too.

We took M on her first swing but she's still a little small for this type of seat so it was kind of a bust... as you can see from her expression.
