I love my new pacifier!

A friend's son has one of these "Wubbanubs" and he loves it...so we got one for Mackenzie. I let Madison pick out the one she thought her little sister would like the best. She chose the little kitty cat. What a great idea, too cute!!

Marvelous "Manes" by Madison

I think our little girl may have a future calling: HAIR STYLING!!



The last few days we have been her clients. She places the wrap around our shoulders, then combs, styles, accessorizes and "cuts" our hair. She is very thorough! She even got water to help her daddy's unrully hair.



Her she is trying to get my hair to stay in pigtails:

Focusing on getting those rubber bands in:

The finished product:


Getting daddy's hair just right:

Maybe a little more water and combing:



How about this style? No?How about this one? Not quite right, yet...

Now this is the best one!!



Daddy is so happy with his new do!

Madison-ism

Tonight when Scott got home from work, Madison was waking up from a nap. He was hugging her and they were talking...

He said, "Madison you are so cute!"

Madison said, "No daddy, I am not cute, I am perfect!"

I got a kick out of it...this is one for the baby books...

Sisterly Love?!

Mackenzie is starting to smile more and more in responce to talking and others...it is so sweet. She especially lights up when her big sister is laughing in her face or smiling at her. Madison still loves to hold her baby and is a great helper...

This morning Madison asked to hold her sister so we placed in on her lap, Mackenzie starts smiling and cooing, so of course I grab the camera.


It is cute, the two snuggling together in their jammies. I took a couple of photos:

Then this happened:
**If you look closely Madison is sort of smiling and sort of in shock! Mackenzie's face is red and she is grunting....actually she just let it all out and I mean all out. Her diaper failed and it went all over Madison. What a proud moment, I got it on film!!

Impromptu photos

We went to the mall today and got the girls first "official" photos taken. It was easy (honestly)! Madison was a great big sister and Mackenzie did great too! I was amazed...we even had one framed it turned out so cute. These are just copies, so they look a little fuzzy.




p.s. Don't worry Kelly we had some made for you :)
