I told myself I would not blog until...

I blogged about Madelyn's birthday party. Last Tuesday night a friend was talking about how she had not seen any pictures of the party and I realized that it's been well over a month and I had not documented it. I've typed out the words. I just have not added the pictures.

But at this rate, if I don't blog until I find the time to upload the 90+ pictures that I narrowed it down to from her birthday party I will get way too behind.

So needless to say, this post isn't about the party.

This just serves as a warning that I have a weeks worth of pictures and words to document and I plan to do it all in the next couple of hours while the baby is in dream land.

Last Wednesday I hauled Madelyn back to the doctor. I think she is going to think that her pediatrician is her BFF. Sometimes I have this weird battle in my head. I know in my gut that something isn't right, but I feel a little unsure as to whether or not I should actually take her in. For some reason I always think, "She's going to be fine, they are going to think I am crazy because I bring her in all the time and we will have spent $30 and half our day finding out she is teething". But...that's only actually happened once. So, I usually go with my gut. I am glad that I did. Even though she saw the ENT on the Thursday before and he said she looked perfect, she had a raging left ear infection.

That's six infections in five months time. I feel so bad for her. She is such a tough little girl though. It is very hard to know when she is sick because she does not fuss. The only way we get tipped off that it might be her ears is when she wakes up for hours on end during the night. Not crying, just ready to play!

I know I say it all the time, but Madelyn favorite "toys" are her books. I dressed her up in her turkey shirt for the doctor and she squeezed a little reading in before we left.
When we came home and while Madelyn was chowing down on her dinner, I put her hair in pig tails. I had several orders recently for "piggie sets" and it got me excited for the day when Madelyn could wear her hair that way.
She ripped them right out but they were so cute while they lasted!

We've been playing a lot of dress up around our house. I received several emails from people who have said they decided to stock their dress up tubs too! It's so fun and such an inexpensive way for the little ones to use their imaginations.

  1. We LOVE our dress-up bucket, even with three boys (and a girl). We have it full of superhero costumes I've collected over the years at sales. I usually buy several sizes too big because its easier for them to put on themselves, and they can wear them for a few years. We also have many, many hats I've gotten at the party store -- fireman, train engineer, king, chef, fisherman, sea captain, police, etc. We have plenty of dresses and mama's old heels, and crowns and bows for our Maddie, too. Like I said, we love the dress-up box!!


Thank you for the comment love! :)
