Madison is almost 5 months old!

My attempt at a photo shoot!
Madison is almost 5 months old (on the 6th). She just had her 4 month check up yesterday and she is doing great! She was a little behind on her shots because of the surgery so she got 2 of her 2 month shots. I am spreading her shots out so she will get 2 more in a few weeks. She barely cried and as soon as i picked her up she smiled and stopped! After all that she has been through shots are a breeze! She weighs 15 lbs 12 oz. (90-95%) and was over 26 inches long (95-97%)!!! She is tall like her daddy! She is eating well, sleeping through the night, having no heart issues and is all caught up developmentally! We are so happy! She is such a happy girl and we are having a blast with her!
Look at her beautiful scar...you can barely see it and it's been less than 3 months!
My health update: I'm finally giving in and getting my gallbladder out. :( I have had too many attacks and the doctor said i have lot of stones. I had a meeting with the surgeon today and he will be calling me soon to set up a surgery date for the next few weeks. I am not worried about it, I'm sure it will go fine. If Madison can go through open heart surgery I can have my gallbladder out!

PLAYDATE #1 Ashlyn and Madison-Cousins

Madison had her first playdate with her 3rd cousin Ashlyn. (Her mom Steph is my 1st cousin) Ashlyn is 6 months old and Madison is 4. Look at how tall they are, (They are both in the 95 % for height)! It was so cute...when we set them across from each other, Ashlyn bent down grabbed Madi's foot and put it in her mouth! She loves to eat her own feet so she got excited to see someone elses feet that were small! She also tried to kiss Madi, it was so adorable! It was so fun to see the two of them interact.

PLAYDATE #2- Skylar Nicole and Madison Nicole

Nicole's Mom Candy brought Skylar over last night for a couple of hours. She will be 10 months in the 9th! She is so beautiful just like her mom. She has the most adorable personality. She is such a happy girl but she can be sooo dramatic (also just like her mom!!). The girls were a little too far apart in age to interact. Madison just watched Skylar crawl and walk around the coffee table in awe! It was alot of fun but, to be honest, it made me sad because Nicole and I would have had so much fun together with our little girls. Skylar had such an amazing mom and I hope she knows all about her when she is old enough.
