Trick or Treat!

Happy Halloween from the McCords to all of you!!! Madelyn was able to make her rounds at the grandparents houses, instead of candy she received a few gifts. In my opinion this is a way better deal then getting candy!

Enjoy a few pictures of our "little monkey"!!

P.S. We did have some professional pictures taken but the website is currently down, once I can retrieve them I will post a few of those as well!!!

Newest trick!

Courtesy of Adam, Madelyn has learned how to blow spit bubbles. I am sure the daycare ladies just love us, at least she hasn't attempted it while I have been feeding her. Needless to say, Adam is very proud!!!

Big Girl!!!

Madelyn is becoming quite the big girl; she is sitting up on her own now. I had noticed the past few weeks she was close to sitting on her own but on Monday I sat her on the floor and she didn't fall over. I put some toys around her and she just sat there and played. Its things like this that are so exciting but at the same time make me a little sad...she's getting too big already. It did make putting her laundry away easier though, she just sat there and entertained herself!

P.S. Maddy is very close to crawling and is getting quite frustrated. She currently gets up on all fours and rocks back and forth but when she tries to go forward she face plants into the floor. I have the video camera ready!!!!!

Yummy Peas!!

Madelyn tried peas last week for the first time and let's just say...they are not her favorite. We were able to get a little of her reaction on video, but not before she literally gagged with the first three bites. Maddy has tried squash, green beans, pears, peaches, sweet potatoes and prunes but they only thing she hasn't liked so far is peas. In the parenting books I have been reading it suggests you feed your baby foods they may not like 7 to 8 more times before considering it a dislike. Unfortunately for Maddy that means she will have to try the dreaded peas a few more times before I give up.

Please excuse any "baby" talk.

We have officially upgraded Maddy from the infant carrier to the regular car seat this past week. My back was telling me it was time! I was really struggling lifting her, plus the carrier up into my car. I was a little concerned at first because I didn't know how she would do sitting up in the grocery cart since I wouldn't have the carrier anymore. We tried it out and it went perfect!! Madelyn seems to be liking her new car seat and is really enjoying the grocery store now. Yesterday we went to Kroger and every time someone would pass us in the aisle, Maddy would strain her neck around to check them out a little longer. It was quite comical to watch, it was as if she needed each person to slow down so she could really get a good look.

I added a few pictures of Maddy in her new car seat and our grocery trip.

P.S. I can't believe she is 5 months today, time is flying by.
