Smiles, Giggles, and Drool

Maddie just had her four month check-up, and at 16lbs,5oz and 25.5 inches, she's in the 95th percentile for both height and weight!  I'm thinking she's not gonna be a shorty like her Mom.  But, as proof that some of my genes are mixed in there, the child can flip her tongue up on its side!  Dakota can't do this, so though she may look like Daddy, she's got the tongue thing from Mom.  And that's important.  

Now, for some cuteness (which I know is why you all are here, so...):

Happy Morning Madeleine, excited to be awake!

Introspective Madeleine, taking time to smell, er, eat the flowers.

Cuddly Madeleine, enjoying a quick snuggle with Mommy.  She really like to lick the wraps...

Outfit One Baby, the way Mommy likes the dress...

...and the way Maddie likes the dress.

Sunshiney Madeleine, ready to go to the library! (Though in reality, we didn't make it that day because Maddie spit up on me three times, and after three changes of each of our clothes, we'd pretty much missed story time).

Playbaby Madeleine, drooling her way to happiness.

Sleepytime Madeleine, napping in a wrap.  Isn't she just the sweetest thing ever?

Bouncy Baby, testing out the jumparoo.  She's still not sure what to make of it.

Baking Baby, helping momma make nummy brownies.

Playtime Madeleine!  Maddie and Daddy play "Madeleine Crushes Tokyo," where Maddie gets to stomp all over...everything.  Her shirt depicts a monster trying to hitch a ride to Tokyo.  Thank you, Threadless.

Daddy's Girl, wrapped up for an evening walk!

Chillin' Baby, takin' it all in like a big girl in her Bumbo.  Pardon the rolls - she's a growing girl.  And pardon the nakedness; it's hot here.

Grumpy Evening Madeleine, soothing herself with her thumb.

All Tuckered Out Madeleine, getting ready for her evening massage.  How come I don't get a massage every night?

Rinse, lather, and repeat...and that's pretty much our life!  

And a side note, we're all about skyping now, so if anyone wants to see Maddie in action, we can book a conference call for you.  Hurry; her datebook's filling fast, because as you can see, she's one busy four-month-old.


  1. What darling pictures! She's so cute.

  2. 4 Months and 4 Times as cute! Love the pictures!
