Each Monday/Tuesday, I will post my pictures/journaling from the previous week. Project Life Tuesday was created by Jessica Turner over at The Mom Creative and Project 366 Rewind is hosted by Sarah at Naptime Momtog and Gina at Chic Homeschool Mama. They both host a linky for readers to link up their pictures. So if you want to join in or want to see others POTW, just click the buttons at the bottom of this post.
And finally, my POTW (pictures of the week):
Monday - Maddie did great again last night. I was extremely stressed and worried, but she went down after reading Goodnight Moon twice. She woke up about 30 minutes later, but then went right back down and slept until almost 6am! We left OK at about 11:30am and she only slept about 40 minutes then entire trip and cried almost the rest. Nana started out riding with Vanessa, but after about and hour and a half into the trip we had to stop because Maddie just wouldn't stop crying. She needed her diaper changed and we had lunch and let the kids out of the car for awhile before starting off again. For the second half, Nana rode with us and I was VERY glad as the last hour she literally had to play peak-a-boo the entire time to keep Maddie from crying. She was exhausted, ready to be out of the car, and ready to be home. She was also VERY glad to see Daddy! He missed us both a ton. We gave Maddie a bath tonight and she kicked/splashed for the first time. She was having a blast kicking in the water and is amazed when Juan pours water from the pitcher. She tries to catch it in her hand. She is still too timid to splash her hand, but loves kicking her feet. Daddy bought flowers for me and Maddie her own separate bouquet of gerber daisies in her room. It was so sweet!
Tuesday - Maddie sat up alone for about 30 seconds today for the first time. Here she is showing Daddy her new accomplishment while gazing at the flowers he bought her. She also played with her plastic stacking rings and managed to take the rings off by herself. I laid her on the floor and put her cloth book about three feet away and told her to get it.....amazingly, she did! She rolled over to it and picked it right up...and it went right in her mouth. I was so surprised.
Wednesday - These are the flowers Maddie and I came home to this past weekend. The first picture is the flowers for Maddie and the second is the flowers for me. How sweet in my hubby? We gave Maddie Zucchini for the first time today. She liked it as much as the first squash that we gave her! We also got an offer on Juan's house today. It was quite a bit less than we were hoping for, but they want to close May 1st which is perfect. We are going to counter tomorrow with a pretty high number.
Thursday - I can't believe that Maddie is 6 months old today. It seems like yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital. She is growing so fast. She is sitting by herself for longer and longer periods of time. She is also beginning to shake and bang objects to make noise, even if that means banging them on herself. She reaches for toys and even is managing to take the rings off the stackers by herself. Daddy helps her do it with her feet and she thinks that is hilarious. She still LOVES to kick. This is her monthly photo with her Elefant. She is now the same size as this huge stuffed animal. She smiles and laughs so much now. She is such a happy baby. House updated: they countered our counter offer on Juan's house. They came up a little, but not what we were hoping for.
Maddie cried a lot this afternoon and Maria gave her Children's tylenol. I gave her another dose before bed. We also accepted the offer on Juan's house and finalized the contract today. It should go to the title company tomorrow. Yeah!
Saturday - Today we went and bought Maddie a ton of fresh veggies from Central Market. We went way over board; but I wanted to make a ton of food to freeze and last us the next couple of weeks. This was the pile for Maddie, the pile for Juan and I wasn't nearly as healthy. Maddie was only running a very slight fever this morning 100.6 degrees, but I went ahead and gave her a dose of Tylenol. Juan had his management class today, so I had Maddie all day. I decided to try an put her down for her nap at about 1pm. She cried for an entire hour and never did fall asleep. It was terrible and I was totally stressed out. I am really worried about how this is going to work. We went to Alice's 1 year birthday party this afternoon.There were lots of kiddos and Maddie was enthralled with all of them. Alice especially liked her birthday cupcake. Happy Birthday Alice. This evening Maddie had a lot of issues going down to bed. I am so worried! I will also be adding the photo of Juan's house contract to our album for today. Lots of photos today!
