Overdue updates...

Self-timing family pictures with a baby
doesn't really work.

Thanksgiving day just waiting for lunch.

So think back to a couple of months ago when I was saying that my life is boring... holy crap Mady NEVER sets still. She is always on the move. She is still for the a great baby but, she is not so good at playing by herself. I can honsetly say there are days I get nothing done, but at the end of the day I wouldn't change it for the world:)
At 7 months old she nows weighs about 15.5 pounds, 25 inches long, still not much hair, can get anywhere she wants, can pull herself up to the couch, loves yogurt, listening to her mom sing( I think that she is laughing at my crappy voice), peek-a-boo, napping with her dad, and basketball games.

The McNeil cousins, Bailee, Mady,
Brylee, and Will.

Our lil skunk.

Mady in her favorite position.

Ready to start crawling anytime now.

As you can see I need a new camera, do any of
you have a particular brand that you love?
Mine SUCKS!!!

Random Pictures

Our newest family picture, I am not sure why
Pat and I are so far away from each other.
I am pretty sure we still love each other.:)

I wish this was bigger. This truly tell the story
of the Olsen's, I am laughing at all the chaos,
some of the kids are crying because the sun is
in there eyes, Chris just got done yelling at Ascha,
and Izzy is in her model like pose. Love it.

Mady LOVES her rice as long as I put a little
apple juice in it to sweeten it up. I think she is
going to have sweet tooth.

Just hanging out on the floor. As you can see
she still really doesn't have hair, and right now
I am okay with that. Then I don't have to do
it. Her eyes are I think officially grey. Not
blue and not brown.

Where did the last month go?

Mady's blessing dress.
This is the best I could come up with, it was cold.

Bailee, Mady, Will and Brylee

So this last month has flown by. I can't believe that its the end of October. Harvest is taking forever and one day I will have my husband back:) Mady is growing like a weed. She can almost sit up by herself, and she is getting really close to crawling. It's bitter sweet but what can you do? The best part of October was be able to have Mady sealed and blessed. It great to know that she is ours forever. We were able to have all of our family at the blessing and it was fun. Sorry Olsen's I had every intention of taking pictures with grandparents and just now realized I didn't get one.

Where have we been???

For all of you thinking that she is too young to have a little ice cream you are probably right, do you think that will stop me, no. She loves it.
Will was so excited to come to Mady's house and help dad show sheep. When he was out in the ring he said, in a rather loud voice, dad are we in 1st place yet? I was so cute. Then he has this weird obsession with smelling things and he was walking back and forth between lambs saying, "umm mell like lamb". He is so stinking funny.

And for Christmas I will forgo getting him a present and just tie a string around an old Mountain Dew bottle. He will love it.

Mady attended her first of many fairs and loved every minute of it. She cooperated so well it was crazy.
I would love to say that we have been SUPER busy lately and that is why there are no updates but that would probably just be a lie. One night after Mady took a bath I put her in her robe and she sat and watched t.v. until she fell asleep. For any of you that know anything about my dad's nightly routine, you would think that he taught her this habit. I think that's why I love it.

She is just shy of 4 months old and rolls everywhere and when she really wants to she can shimmy her way to things. I don't think it will be very long before she is crawling around.

Pat loves these pictures, during grain harvest we would ride with him and she would just sit and look out the window and he thought that he should start teaching her how to drive the combine so she can get a good start on things.

Updates from the last month....

Mady should probably get used to self portraits
because we seem to take alot of them.:) She
LOVES to be outside and with us this is a great
blessing. Whenever she is fussy I just take her
outside and she calms right down.

I love this picture!! Mady will suck on anything
including her Binky and her fingers at the same
time. I can't decide if I would rather she suck
on her fingers or her Binky. There are pros and
cons to both.

Mady's first trip to the zoo. She slept through
most of it but when she woke up she was happy.
You might be thinking that she is VERY chubby
but I promise it's all in her checks.

I know I say this everytime but
Mady is this best baby in the world.
She is getting a little personality and
I love to watch her grow every day.
She loves her blanket and doesn't
like to let go of it. She is all smiles
when her dad gets home and she loves
for people to talk to her. She is
spoiled rotten and gets everything
that she wants. I realize that we
could be creating a monster but,
I guess we will just deal with that
when it happens. I never thought
that I could love someone as much as
I love her, it's weird. We are hoping
that all of the paper work is final
in a couple of weeks, then we will
be able to seal her to us and she
will be stuck with us forever.

She is gettting so BIG!!!

I tried to get her to smile while taking a picture. This was the best I could get.

Her Sunday afternoon nap with dad.

We are so lucky to have Mady in our lives. We love her so much and every day I am pretty sure she just gets cuter and cuter:) She is a wonderful baby, she loves to smile and laugh at anybody. We couldn't have "hand picked" a better little girl.

Mady's first bath

When Mady was born she HATED to bath but now she loves it. These are the first pictures of her bathing.

Happy July!!!

Mady and I got to stay in Kamas for one week. It was great! I am pretty sure that Mady was held for one entire week. She is very spoiled. But I guess that is okay.
The 4th of July is huge holiday for our family. We are always in Utah for the celebration. Pat doesn't love it like us "Kamasites", there is just something about the parade and rodeo. Oh well he will just have to learn to deal with it:)
