....That is what Mason calls her ;) Madelyn absolutely LOVES her big bro! She lights up when he is around....he thinks she isn't so bad either :) I can't believe she is 6 months old!!! We have been quite busy and many mastered many new milestones! Since 4 months old she has been eating cereal and now she is eating solids...she is not a fan of many...she likes sweet potatoes, Pears and Applesauce so far...NOT MANY! She is still nursing and taking a bottle...however she is getting less interested in nursing and it seems she is weaning herself. Madelyn has been sitting up for a couple of weeks now and is CRAWLING!!! Mason did not crawl until 7 months but walked at 9 months....hopefully we have a while before she walks....!!!! I have had to lower her bed to the LOWEST setting...she is pulling herself to standing and jumping....I really hope I don't have another climber like Mason...he was climbing out of his crib before 1 YEAR?!?!? Madelyn is sleeping great at night (7:45-7:00) and naps....well I can't complain they are at least 1 hr or longer each one. It amazes me what babies learn in just a short period of their life...AMAZING!

Here is a lil video of Madelyn on the move.
(notice the chocolate stain on her shirt...Mason thought he would share his treat with her :)

My Fish!

Last spring was Mason's first time for swim lessons. We only took for a few months. He has always enjoyed being in the water, but was not a "swimmer". This summer I knew we needed to get him back in and swimming! Since I have Madelyn, swim lessons that require me to be in the pool would have been a challenge. We have a few friends who have used this one lady who does private swim lessons so we decided to try her. He goes 4 days a week. I was sooo excited to get Mason swimming on his own and loving the water!

Here is a little clip of Mason after just 4 lessons!!! (BEFORE he would not even come off the steps unless he was being held and he WOULD NOT go under..."I CAN'T WANT TO GO UNDER" Mason would say...and look at him now!!) And we aren't done yet...more swim lessons to go :) I am so proud of him.

Madelyn is CRAWLING! For over a week she has been getting on her hands and knees and rocking back and forth...but I did not think she would take off so soon...she is just a week shy of 6 months old!! My baby is GROWING UP :) Of course she just goes a few feet in front of her. If you put a toy out in front of her...SHE WILL GET IT!!
**Video to come soon**
