3 Months Old!

I can't believe how fast the last 3 months have! Madison is such an angel and here are some of her accomplishments as of right now:
-has slept through the night (at least 8-9 hours) for the last 3-4 weeks consistently!
-takes 3 or 4 good naps during the day (can't stay awake for much more than an hour at a time!)
-I can lay her down wide awake for naps and she puts herself to sleep with no crying at's an absolute miracle!
-can hold her head up when laying on her tummy
-smiles at everyone who smiles at her
-gets a little upset if left in a room by herself, but as long as she can see someone she knows, she is very content
-starting to drool like crazy
-loves her binky
-loves bathtime
-loves to be outside
-hardly ever cries...maybe a couple minutes a day and that is if she can't get a burp out or she is super tired
-according to being on the scale with me, I think she weighs just over 14 pounds right now!

Madison has been such a wonderful addition to our family and the transition to three kids has been so much easier than I anticipated. I'm not sure if it is because she is such a good baby, or because there is a 3 1/2 year gap between her and Paris, or if it is because I am a little more relaxed/less stressed about everything in general, but I'm grateful! It's sad to see her grow up so fast, but it's so fun to see her learn and grow as well. Savannah and Paris continue to pray daily that Madison will grow up fast so they can play with her more!

Holding Hands

Since Madison was born, Savannah has been somewhat obsessed with having Madison hold her finger. Some day she will realize that it is a reflex that all babies have when you stick a finger in their palm, but for now, she truly believes that Madison just loves to squeeze her finger. And from the way that Madison responds to Savannah with such big smiles all the time, I think I'm also convinced that their hand holding is more than just a reflex as well! Any time Madison is awake (which is still not super often!), Savannah runs right to her and grabs her hand....even in the car, I will look behind me and Savannah is holding her hand from her is so sweet, and although I don't think Madison will tolerate it forever, I do hope that all these girls continue to be best friends and have a wonderful relationship as sisters.

Madison has been smiling for a while now, but I haven't gotten any smiles on camera yet until this morning.....she saves her best smiles for Savannah and Daddy! We just love this little girl so much...she is the sweetest baby ever and is soooooo good!
