My first dip in the pool!

Maddy had her first swim in the pool today! She wasn't quite sure what to think--she neither cried nor really laughed or anything...I think she was just taking it all in! Here are some more pictures I took (including swim pictures). I took a picture with her teddy so you can see how she is growing vs. other pictures with teddy.

A Half a Year Old & a Visit from Grandma

Where to start? This past month has been full of a lot of "firsts" for Maddy. Unfortunately, not all firsts have been good. Soon after starting daycare she developed a stomach bug and was sick for almost a week with that. Then a week ago she had her six month Dr. visit and she was 13 lbs 10 oz and 26 inches she is super long and lean (despite her Michelin man rolls on her thighs & arms). After her immunizations she developed a stuffy nose which a week and a half later developed into an inner ear infection (while her grandma was visiting no less!!!) But Maddy is a trooper. She fought hard to be in a good mood for her Grandma and she only lost the battle once the fever kicked in. Maddy is eating two solid food meals a day now--rice cereal for breakfast and veggie for dinner--I am not sure if she is really my kid b/c she hates fruit but loves vegetables! So far she has tried peas, green beans, sweet potatoes and loves all three (I think the peas were her favorite...blech!) Needless to say after a busy month I have not taken many pictures...bad mommy! Here are a couple from Grandma's visit and some others that are just too cute not to put on here.

And these three were just so adorable--I took them after bathtime one day.
