Madeline and Shelby's playdate

Madeline had her first playdate on January 4th. Ashleigh, Michelle, and Shelby came over to have lunch and hang out.

1 month

On January 3rd we took Madeline's 1 month picture next to her rabbit. We plan on doing this on the 3rd of every month to track her growth. Here she is 7lbs 8 oz... almost 2 lbs heavier than she was at birth.

I love my Daddy!

We always knew Ty would be a hands on daddy. I don't know who was having more fun on Madeline's activity mat!

Introducing Madeline to her crib

We got Madeline's crib at the end of December thanks to some generous Christmas gifts by our family. We were so excited that we had to get it all set up and take pictures of her in it with her "friends." We're not ready to move her into it just yet but it sure is a relief that it's ready for her when we are ready.

Madeline's jacket

Tyson and I fell in love with this bear jacket! We knew how cute Madeline would look in it. She, on the other hand, isn't so fond of it! I think that she already knows how embarrased she's going to be when we show her friends this picture when she's a teenager.

Madeline and her family

Madeline got to meet so many family members over the past few weeks. The Zelkovich clan came in from St. Louis and Missouri and New York so she got to meet her Uncle Evan, Aunt Jessica, cousins Carolyn and Jonathan, and her Great Grandma Lillian. She also got to meet her Uncle Jack and Uncle Trevor who were in town from school.

The whole family came in for Christmas this year. Carolyn was great with Madeline. She's such a good helper! Jonathan didn't care quite as much (but in his defense, he is only 8 months!) although he knew there was another baby around when his mother tried to hold Madeline!

Dixie and Madeline

Well, it took Dixie a little longer, but she's finally come around to Madeline. Madeline has even gotten a piggy back ride from Dixie!
