Happy 3 Month Birthday, Maddie!
Over the last few weeks she has been working on perfecting her hand-eye coordination - reaching for the toys that dangle down from her activity gym, figuring out that her feet are attached to her body, and checking out her clothing. She is also getting sooooo close to turning over from her tummy to her back. She has done it twice, by mere accident, and really surprised herself when she did. Looking forward to more firsts as she continues on in meeting her developmental milestones. At a recent appointment on October 15th Madison weighed 10 lbs 5.4 oz. Still our little peanut, but getting bigger and bigger every day!
Unfortunately I had to return to work last week. By the sounds of it, Madison did better than I did. I cried most of the day as I attempted to prepare myself for leaving her. When it came time to leave the tears were impossible to hide. Maddie actually seemed to find my leaving quite comical as she laughed out loud as I was saying my goodbyes. I know that she is in good hands with her daddy and grandma and grandpa while I am away, but it was still extremely tough.
Yesterday we had a fun evening at Spooner Farms Pumpkin Patch with Grandma Jill and Grandpa Randy. Maddie was happier being held by daddy than she was riding with the pumpkins in the wheelbarrow. Can't wait to celebrate more holidays with our beautiful baby girl.
