It's A???????????????????


I have been so horrible about keeping up to date on our blog recently. I am seriously going to try and be a better blogger these days. I have also not been the best at taking pictures recently. I seem to forget my camera all the time. It is my goal to work on both of these things...hold me to it! :)

I do want to let everyone know that we just found out what Baby #2 is. It's a .........................GIRL!!!!

We are so excited for Madi to have a little sister. It is also very convenient since we have an enormous amount of pink around the house. Everything looked great on the ultrasound. Although her heart looks perfect so far, we are going to have a fetal echo done in a few weeks just to get an even better look.

Madi is doing fantastic! She is full of personality and makes us laugh every day. We are having so much fun with her. I love watching her explore and learn new things each day. She has completely mastered army crawling and is super fast at it. I can guarantee you it would be much easier on her if she would just get up on her hands and knees to crawl...but she still refuses. She has started pulling herself up to stand and is quite proud of herself these days. Her new favorite game is "where is Madi's...(fill in the body part). She points to her eyes, ears, nose, mouth, feet, hands and hair. She loves to say "Hi" with a southern accent (it is too cute) and wave to EVERYONE. She has 12 teeth and has begun to use them on things other than food...usually my shoulder! She has started feeding herself with a spoon recently and is still working on her manners with that. She has decided that just putting her hands in the bowl of food and playing with it is way more fun than using a spoon. We are still dealing with the throwing phase so her spoonful of food usually ends up on the floor a few times. Having a dog has really come in handy for cleaning up.

I will try and post some pictures soon from our recent trip to Mexico. It is time for mama to get some rest!

  5. congratulations on baby girl # 2, that is awesome news - madi will be a great big sister :) that is so funny that madi says "hi" with a southern accent... whitney does too! we tell people she is from tennessee (we live in Indiana and do not have a southern accent... not sure where she picked up the southern drawl, but it is cute) - you will have to catch her saying "hiiiii" (said w/ an accent) on video for us to see!!!

  6. Wow. Congrats. That will be so much fun for Madi to have a sibling. It sounds like Madi is doing great. Okay..I can't believe that she has 12 teeth. Wysdom is working on his first. Wow. That is awesome that she is crawling and moving around. Don't worry about the army crawl. My daughter did that and she developed awesome arm strength and little muscles. Glad to hear that all is good.
