We've been trying to get Maddy to do more "tummy-time" so she'll get stronger and so she can get comfortable being on the floor and hopfully learn to roll over. Well today I was laying on the floor with her on her tummy and all of a sudden, she rolled over onto her back. Ted missed it and immediately came running over and we put her back on her tummy to see if she'd do it again. About a minute later she rolled again onto her back. We'll try to get a video of it soon but here are some pictures for now.
"Tummy time" isn't so bad after all!
Not too sure how she got on her back all of a sudden!
At Christmas we did a family photo shoot with the Draper side of the family including Grandpa Larry, Grandma Kim, Great Grandma Pat, Uncle Dan, Aunt Nicole and Cousin Hayden. Here are some of the best shots!
Ted and Maddy have been reading stories in the evenings. She's totally mesmerized by books which is great to see at such a young age. Thanks to all the family and friends who have added to her "library."
Grandpa Larry is staying with us and taking care of Maddy for a couple of weeks now that Julie has gone back to work full-time. Lucky for everyone, the NW got hit with a big storm and we got about 8 inches of snow last night and this morning. Julie's college cancelled classes and work for the day, so she's home. Julie, Larry, Maddy and Bailey went out to enjoy the snow (all bundled up of course). Bring on the snowdays :)
Maddy turned 3 months old yesterday! Time sure is flying by and she's getting so big. She is super alert and likes to be sitting up all the time (lay her down and you're sure to get a fussy baby). She is beginning to play with her toys as she is getting the hang of her hands. She "talks" all the time and is always making noises, especially if you are talking to her. She hasn't slept in her swing at night for almost a week now and is embracing her crib quite well. She typically sleeps about 10-12 hours at night, and while it's not through the night, she usually only gets up twice which is much appreciated. Here are some photos from her 3 month photo shoot:
We got some new toys from a friend for Maddy. She is just barely tall enough for her feet to reach and we have to stuff a blanket in the seat so she can sit up straight but she seems to like it. We can't wait until she can really grab and play with toys!
We took the whole family and went to Ocean Shores on the Washington Coast for the weekend. We had a great time staying in a suite at an Inn we've stayed at a few times before. The weather was pretty nice and we even got to go out and enjoy the beach.
We had a jacuzzi tub in our suite and Maddy enjoyed some "swimming"
Bailey LOVED the beach and chasing her ball
Maddy missed the beach but took a great nap on Mom
