We're still here!!

Ok, I have to admit that I have been HORRIBLE about this blog. I have many excuses, none of which are really valid :) I'll just say things have been busy and leave it at that!
Here are some updates.
Madison is going to be 22 months old coming up in December. Where has the time gone with her?? She is very much a little princess!! We are experiencing what the terrible two's can be like I'm afraid. She is still our little angel however and we love her SOOOOO much!!
For those of you who don't know...Chris and I are expecting a baby boy in March of next year. The name is still up for debate :) We are very excited about our new arrival. It's going to be nice having a little boy around the house. Madison is very excited about being a "big sister". She will come up to me and rub my belly and say "baby butter in dere". She will also give her "baby butter" a kiss. It's soooooo cute!! It will be very interesting to see how she reacts when her little brother is actually here and taking up some of her spotlight. Time will tell. I do think she will be a great big sister and do a lot to help.
I will add some recent pictures of "Life at the Davis House" shortly....I promise.

And We're Back!!

Wow!! I have been bad about keeping up with this blog haven't I? I'm going to try my best to get back on the blog bandwagon and start updating again. There have been so many changes going on since the last post it's just crazy! The biggest thing is that Madison turned 1 on Feb 3!! That was a great and sad day for Mommy. I just can't believe my little girl is getting so big!! She's growing up way too fast, but yet it's been amazing watching her grow :) It's the best feeling in the world watching her learn all new things. She's been walking for almost 2 months now and actually pretty much runs around the house at times. She sure is fast for such a little girl! Her favorite things are playing with her babies, reading books, playing with Bailey our dog and just playing hard :)
It was also discovered that she has a milk allergy. Although this isn't a good thing, it solved the problem of her not eating, being sick all the time and not gaining weight. Since being off of milk she's gained 8 oz, eats like crazy and hasn't had a serious infection. She does love her soymilk so that's great!
As I said earlier, I promise to be better about updating and posting more about our day to day lives :) Here are few pictures from the past several months.

The Drag

Madison has become very interested in playing with our dog Bailey in the past few days. Here is a little video of Maddie and Bailey playing tug of war. I had a hard time holding the camera still because I was laughing so hard. Madison holds on tight and is very determined to not let go.

Those darn ears!!

Madison had a unexpected trip to the Dr today. She had been running a low grade temperature at daycare last week, but was acting fine. Then over the weekend she developed quite the snotty/congested nose, runny eyes and cough. The poor little thing has been having a hard time breathing while eating and sleeping and just looks plain miserable. So, I decided that I had better take her to the Dr this morning and make sure she didn't have an ear infection brewing as well...and she does. The Dr also informed be that because she's had 3 ear infections since July, we need to think about tubes in her ears if she gets another one soon. Not really what I wanted to hear, but if it would help I'm for it. So, she's on an antibiotic for the next 14 days and hopefully it will knock it out. She goes back next Tuesday for her 9 month checkup (which I can't believe!) I'm not really wanting to think she's 9 months old already. Where has my little girl gone??
There will be another post after her checkup!

Madison has been doing all sorts of new things lately. She has added "Mamama" and "Dadada" to her vocabulary. I'm sure she doesn't know what they mean yet, but at least she says them now. She also has started some clapping, espcially after she sees us clapping. Also, the other day she sat up from a laying down position which surprised her a little bit I think. The funny thing is that the other night around
2am I heard Madison crying and fussing. After about 10 minutes I went in to try to calm her down and pat her back to sleep. Well, I walked into her room to find her sitting up in the middle of her bed with her pacifier in her mouth half asleep. I think she sat up and couldn't figure out how to lay back down. I layed her back down and she fell right asleep. It was pretty cute. She is also a pro at the army crawl and dashes across the living room floor very fast. There is nothing safe around her anymore. She is such a funny girl and all the workers at daycare love her. She still seems to be having a lot of fun there as well and is always playing and happy when I come to pick her up which makes me feel good. I'm sure there will be a lot of more new things to report very shortly. It seems like she does something or says something new everyday.

Love my hats!!

Here are two of the crocheted hats I've made Madison today. I have seen these in the stores and I figured I could try to make them myself. I don't think they look half bad and they're a lot cheaper as well.
