Diamonds are a Girl's Best Friend

Madison got her ears pierced this past week! (You can see them a little better by clicking on the picture) She did great and only cried a few minutes while she was getting them done. She now has 14 carat white gold with cubic zirconia in her ears (not quite diamonds, but close enough!) I'm glad we finally got them pierced, they look so cute and it goes with the culture on my dad's side of the family. I was nervous she wouldn't be able to sleep on them very well since she sleeps on her tummy and side, but she does just fine. But now I get to clean them 3 times a day for the next 6-8 weeks...oh well, it's worth it :)

She's standing on her own when we lean her against furniture or other things, and she hasn't really fallen over in a long time when she's sitting up by herself. I can't believe how big she's getting, but is still her cute little giggly self. She's still rolling around the room like crazy, but looks like she's going to take off crawling any day now. Recently she weighed about 17 lbs. 3 oz, so definitely a little growth spurt here lately. It amazes me how much she eats, solid stage 2 foods 3 times a day with apple juice and some cereal, plus nursing 6 times a day. She still only has 2 teeth but I know the others have to be coming soon, since her drool and spit up are increasing again. She has also been saying "mama" pretty constantly. It's so sweet! So now Daddy is trying pretty hard to teach her "Dada."

We are going to get some pictures made of her very soon by a cousin of mine, so I'm excited. It's been awhile since we've had any professional ones done (yes Heather, I consider you a professional!) So be looking out for those in the next few weeks.

Here's a little video of Madison just sitting in the grass. We went outside and played in the yard some since it's been so nice lately. She was a little hesitant and couldn't quite figure out what that green stuff was she was sitting on.
