Mady in Wyoming!

This is just short clip of Mady and the two headed calf thing we got for Jack and Wanita..couldn't help it, it was funny! I used it to distract her when Kendall was changing her...

I was talking to Kendall's Mom when I saw him walking by stuffing his nose..hahahaha blow out!

Oh man, where to start. I started the new semester last Monday, and for some crazy reason I decided to add a Spanish class at 6:30 A.M. that is everyday. Of course, Mady got her first cold on like Thursday, then Friday Kendall woke up sick, and Saturday we were all sick. It was not amazing. Sunday we went for a drive and ended up in Jackson...we'd never been there. Mady slept the whole way and had no idea where we were. She woke up with this bewildered look on her face. Then she slept the drive home and slept all night, which was GLORIOUS.

Monday we walked around town with Wanita and her boys, and Jennie and her boys..we went to the park and just enjoyed the weather. We have a travel system so Mady has always been in the car seat part, but put her in the stroller seat part for the first time, and she did so much better. She only fussed when the sun got in her eyes. .. oh yeah! We went to I.F. on Saturday and had lunch with Trevor and his friend, and saw his new apartment, and we went to the Museum. When I was changing Mady at Trevor's she rolled over from her back to her tummy!! Today Mady had her 4 month well baby/check up at the doctors...they told me to start giving her rice cereal, but I just don't know. I keep hearing conflicting info about that...and I honestly don't think much of her Pediatrician. I was also told that since she favors leaning her little head to one side, if it doesn't improve in 2 weeks, she'll have to get physical therapy!! :( She goes to Upper Valley Ped. but I've heard a lot of other Mom's that aren't happy with them. I don't know what to think...

OH and the picture with Mady in the green seat with the toys..a lovely lady in our ward, Rebecca, has an adorable little boy who isn't interested in his exersaucer any more, so she's letting Mady borrow it! She's really getting the hang of it, and gets all bouncy and excited!

Saturday Family Trip to Bear World

Today we decided to go to Bear World so we could get the community cards that they hand out the first few weekends they are open. They give you half off, which is great since it is so expensive. Of course Mady is still a little too short in the knickers to really enjoy it yet, but we still had fun. Since I worked there last summer, it was interesting to see some of the changes they are making. We wanted to go to the Museum of Idaho too, but since Mady was up so much last night, we all just wanted to come home and nap. Of course Mady had different plans, slept on the car ride home and woke up immediately when we pulled up to the apartment. I should be sleeping now while I can! Mady has been sleeping through the night since she was a month old, but ever since our trip to Utah, I think she might have gotten a little messed up on her schedule. I bought curtains for her room today so maybe she'll quit waking up when the sun is bright.

We finally got Mady giggling on camera! I don't think there is anything else in this world that could make our day the way she does. A happy baby is amazing.

Trip to Utah!

So Kendall's friend from home, Anthony, was here for a week, so we decided to take a trip down to Salt Lake City. It was the longest trip we've gone on with Mady, but it went pretty well. We stopped at the Idaho Falls, Logan , Ogden, and Bountiful Temples on the way down, and Mady was asleep for all of them. We had to buy another memory card for the camera because I left ours at home, and we had to buy Mady some clothes because I left her bag too. We got to SLC and went straight to the hotel, which was only 3 blocks from Temple Square, but yikes, it was gross. We didn't want to stay there, but didn't really have a choice. Saturday we walked down to Temple Square and spent a few hours there.

So we bought this Bumbo seat today, and we probably paid too much for it, but ever since Mady started trying to sit up, that's all she wants, and everything else we have reclines too much and it makes her really mad. So we tried the seat out, and she loved it.
