So Madison is definitely saying "momma". We're sure she doesn't really realize what she's saying, but it's still adorable. Matt is persistently trying to get her to say "da da". haha!
Madison also achieved a major milestone Sunday night (the 15th). She started sitting unsupported. She's doing it quite well! We are so proud of her!

Seven Months

Dear Madi the Monkey,

It seems like you just turned six months old yesterday, yet somehow another month has passed and you are now seven months old. You've grown and changed so much again over the last month. It seems as if you are learning something new every day.

You babble so much at us. We love it! You have started making a lot of sounds with consonants - mainly "b" or "p" sounds. You're favorite is "bubba". Uncle Matt says he refuses to go by "Bubba"! You've started making "mum mum" and "momma" sounds too, but you're only doing it if you're mad or upset.

You absolutely love playing in your exersaucer! You play with everything on it now. Your favorite thing on your exersaucer is the apple - you love to chew on the leaf. You just started bouncing in your exersaucer - you get so excited! You've started banging on stuff and banging stuff together. Daddy sings to you and tells you to keep the beat, but you always stop banging to just listen to his silly songs.

We've been calling you "monkey". You're always wrapping your legs around something - our arms when we're trying to change your diaper, your Pooh Bear, etc. You also make the sole of your feet touch and rub them together. And you love sitting with your feet crossed!

You love to eat your baby food! You get so excited about eating from a spoon - and you seem to really enjoy pretty much everything we give you. Oatmeal is your very favorite! Peas are your least favorite.

Happy 7 months, baby girl! We love you!

Trick or Treat

We didn't take Madison trick-or-treating in our neighborhood for her first Halloween, but she did dress up and help us give out candy. She really enjoyed sitting outside with us and seeing all the other kids. It's so funny how excited she gets about other children. We'd say "trick or treat" and hold the candy bowl in front of her - she picked out 2 tootsie rolls and 2 bags of sweet tarts. Baby Ladybug
She loves him so much!

She was very intrigued by the witch.
