Madi was saying "UP!"

We have have been enjoying this beautiful weather lately. FINALLY it's hot here in Michigan. (It's about time, it's only August!) We have had lots of play dates lately. Madison is learning to share. (Not going too well, but what 9 month old shares?!) We had our last Mommy and Me class, those kids are way too cute. We are going to try and meet once a month still. It is so much fun to hangout with mom's of 9 month olds, we have so much in common!! Madi has had a cold for a month now...we have been to the doctor twice for it. It has been so bad (especially at night) that it has been waking her multiple times a night. I called again and they put her on a med for asthma, (I can't think of the name) it has helped a lot. I hope she doesn't have asthma though! Madison is getting more active everyday. She army crawls still but is getting faster at it! She learned to sit up from laying down position and is FINALLY bearing weight on her legs. I don't think she will be walking by a year, but I am A-OKAY with that! Speaking of that...we are planning her first birthday already. It's only 2 months away. I can't believe it!! We are having it at my parents house and are doing a Minnie mouse theme. Does anyone have any cute ideas?

Other news...We gave our dog, Bella away a few weeks ago. We live in a condo and are never home. I felt so bad for her. She loves to run and be outside but it was too hard with a baby. It was such a hard decision but it was the right one. We found a retired family that has a 3 other pugs. They are home all day and live for their dogs. Bella fit right in at their house. We have missed her a lot though.


Miss Madison Nicole (that is what she is called when she is in trouble!) has been real sassy lately! She hits and throws temper tantrums when she doesn't get what she wants. I am trying to ignore it and not let it bother me but I worry that it will get worse. I know that you can't really discipline a 9 1/2 month old. I am hoping its just a phase but does anyone have any advise???

Ahhh! I got my Madi fix today. So happy to see pictures of her cute face. Bentley's birthday is in 2.5 weeks. It's so sad.

Thank you for the sweet comment about Bentley's appointment. You always seem to know exactly what I need to hear. Must be because of our connection. ;)

Can't wait to see and hear more about Madi. Also your new career goal. That sounds awesome by the way. I don't think a lot of people even think about that one but it is such an amazing and great thing who wouldn't love to help families like that. Mainly when they have a child that is sick, it makes it extra special.
