Madelayne finally said MAMA yesterday! It completely melted my HEART to PIECES! She is such a blessing from GOD. She has been full of herself all evening playing and laughing with her Mimi and Papaw. We are so blessed to have such amazing people in our lives. She is still going backwards in her walker and still trying hard to get on them knees and crawl. We are still waiting for a tooth to break through. This teething mess is hurting my sweet baby, I wish I could just pull it through for her! I finally have a day off tomorrow... I think we may work on a few things for our "SUPRISE" that I will reveal soon. And maybe clean and organize her closet again. Maddy is sound asleep, sleeping so peacefully. I am a bit jealous :) Guess i'll try to get some rest too. Be sure to check back daily to see what new things Madelayne has done!! :)

Happy Tuesday!

Well, today I woke up feeling alot better than I felt last night. Although I did stay up coughing all night. Madelayne and I did some shopping today. She got her FIRST and it wont be her last pair of TOMS! One for one! We also went to Kelly Kids and got lots of cute new little outfits! They have some super  cute stuff in the store. We also recieved some eager news... i'll share about that a little later on though!! :) Tonight I cooked home-made chicken and dumplin's from my Nana's reciepe and for my first time they were definitely a success!! All in all today was a good day, cant complain about it except for this vicous cough that wont go away. Prayers this passes soon, im entirely too busy to be sick! Hope everyone has a good night.

Remember, pray for yourself, family, friends, enemies, your country, everyone. God hears them all and answers them all one way or another. ;)

My first pageant dress!

Last night I was cleaning out Madelayne's closet (for the 2nd time this month) and saw my old pageant dresses. So I decided to play dress up with Madelayne. I put my very first pageant dress on her! I showed Madelayne to her Mimi and her Mimi started tearing up. It was so weird for Mimi & Papaw to see Madelayne in my first pageant dress... and we look so much alike! They were definitely tears of joy! :)
Madelayne will be in her first pageant very soon and we cant wait to see how she'll do!!

My First Blog Entry!

Hello! I'm starting this whole blogging thing over again. I started blogging when I was pregnant and was too tired to keep up with it. :) So, now im going to blog on my sweet little Madelayne's life and all of the many adventures with her. I may not blog every day because I work full time and i'm also a full time mommy. :) But I will keep updated regularly. I hope you all enjoy reading on Madelayne's life! :)

At 4 months Madelayne started rolling all over the place.
At 5 months Madelayne sat up for the first time!
Also, at 5 months Madelayne said her FIRST word, DADA!
Now we are practicing on her saying MAMA and she is trying to crawl! :)

Having Madelayne as my baby is the best gift I have ever in my life received. She is such a joy! She is always full of smiles, she only fusses when she's hungry. She wakes up happy, smiling, and laughing and goes to sleep happy, smiling, and laughing. She has been such a joy to my family as well. Her Mimi & Papaw just love her so much. She definitely has them wrapped around her little fingers. Madelayne is growing way to fast, it seems like just yesterday I was at the hospital holding her when she was 5 minutes old. Now she is babbling, rolling, scooting, crawling, holding on bottle and sitting up. My how times flies! My advice to everyone having babies lately, enjoy every single minute you have with them. No, you cannot spoil a baby by holding it all the time. If  you want to sit around and hold your baby 24/7 then you do just that. Besides, babies arent spoiled they just know what they want!! ;)

Going to cuddle with my sweet baby loves. Have a good night everyone!
