Maddie bow baddie...

Our little Madelyn is growing up WAY too fast. She has been soo fun lately rolling, cooing, talking, laughing, and just being too CUTE! We took her to her four month appointment and she weighs a whooping 11lbs, 4 ozs and is 23 inches long. So she's tiny, but STRONG! She's in the 7th percentile for weight and the 20th for height. The doctor keeps assuring me that its just genetics and not that she's not growing or anything. He says that she is on her own growth rate. I guess I worry because Grant was 3lbs bigger than her at the same age! But he's a boy and she's a girl:) So I guess its good. This time around I definitely feel like I have a newborn for a much longer time than I did with Grant. She's just content to hang out anywhere and watch what everyones doing. She doesn't care to roll over too much (even though she can) or hang out on her stomach. I guess I'm supposed to start rice cereal soon, but to be honest she's so small that I would feel silly putting her in a high chair. But we'll start that sometime this month. She is so fun to be around and will go to anyone. She sleeps through the night and takes two to three naps a day! She really likes to sleep, so much so I worry about her and wake her up if she sleeps too long. She is soo much fun to be around and we just LOVE her to death! Oh by the way, nursing is going great! Although she refuses to take a bottle after she turned 3 months, so I guess we will just take her with us wherever we go!
