Madelyn: 6 Months



Happy half-birthday!  You are six months old!  Crazy!!

Here are some of your stats for the month:

-Weighing 15lb 12oz and 25 3/4" tall

-You are now in size 2 diapers and you're wearing mostly 3-6 and 6 months clothes.

-You are trying your best to crawl...almost there!

-You continue talking and squealing all the time.  It is soo high pitched!

-You were dedicated at church on Sunday.  We pray for you every night and hope that we can be good examples for you.

-You are still eating about 8 oz. every 4 hours. You're also eating rice cereal, carrots, squash, peas and prunes.  You'll start green beans tomorrow!

-You sleep between 11-12 hours at night.  Going to bed at about 8pm and waking up between 7am-8am in the morning.

-We finally saw you roll from belly to back, but still haven't seen from back to belly yet.  It will happen soon.

-You've been in the nursery at church since you were about 4 weeks old.  We thought we'd start you early, get you used to being held and watched by someone else.  Every week when we pick you up, the nursery workers say you are such a treat to have.  We are blessed with a well behaved baby.

-We are also blessed to have TONS of friends volunteer to watch you so we can go out.  You are very good with all of them!

Madelyn's Dedication Day

This past Sunday, Tim and I dedicated Madelyn to the Lord.  That we are committing to raise Madelyn to love and honor Christ, and to show her that through our lives in the best way possible.
There were three other babies dedicated as well.  It was fun for all of us to be up there....AND none of the babies cried!  We figured out of 4 babies, at least one of them would cry.  But no, they were all on their best behavior.  I think they were all in awe of the lights and all the people.




Madelyn started eating carrots and squash this past week.  I'm trying to be domestic (and save money!) by making my own baby food.  It's so simple and doesn't take very long!

 Yum-it's good!
