Roll, Roll, Roll over

Hi Everyone!

Madi is doing great so far. She just mastered tummy rolling - but she can't roll from her back to her tummy. Sometimes, she gets stuck from rolling from her tummy and starts crying bc she's pissed! She started rolling around on Oct. 23, a little shy of 4 months old. People kept asking me if she can flip over yet... I started practicing everyday w/her, flipping
over and back. Gosh, I bet I am super overbearing in her eyes! Oh well... I'm the BOSS!

She's doing great... Madi is the happiest baby! She smiles at me all the time, especially when I make kissing noises and motions, she squirms ~ she is too cute and I'm not saying that just bc she's my sunshine! She probably thinks her names is so cute already :p okie, I'll stop now!!!

She is a total porker now. Hrmm... her bottle is 200ml per 4 hours, 4 bottles a day. Why so little? bc she sleeps during the rest of the time, YES... I mean, she's sleeping from 7am to 7pm. We tried waking her to feed her some more - BIG MISTAKE. She either gets pissed off and try to go back to sleep or she'll want to play.

On Sunday, we'll taking her to her 4 month pediatrician appointment, which means more shots!!! This time, we'll bring the camcorder. Madi is actually a trooper, she'll cry for 5 seconds and act as if nothing happened, as long as she's getting those kisses from Mommie and Daddie.

I've been training her how to sit on her own. For now, I'm using a pillow to prop her up. It's funny bc she'll start sliding and end up in a really strange position. Makes me laugh everytime...

Baby Madi has reached another milestone! She can lay on her tummy and lift her head up w/her arms and peek at what her Mommie is doing. Mommie is usually ducking and hiding out so she won't get spotted by Madi.

Baby Madi is a little over 100 days old. She enjoys socializing w/bed buddies - the Inch Worm-ie, Jacques the peacock and Mortimer the moose. She loves her Inch Worm-ie most. When she wakes up in the morning, she's usually jibber jabbering with Worm-ie. When she's done talking to Worm-ie, she kicks Worm-ie then cries when she gets bored! At that point, either Mommie or Daddie entertains Madi. Talk about high maintenance!!!

Madi's Mommie is soooo tired from wearing Madi w/the Baby Bjorn. Madi goes where Mommie goes!!!

We are so excited to see Grandpa Thach... 11 days left! I bet he has many presents for Madi and Mommie!!!

The very top picture is Madi, who looks like Uncle Aaron. The one below it, Daddie wearing Madi. The one beneath that is 'Madi drop kicking Inch Worm-ie,' she's saying 'Imma kick you in the head!' And the last picture is Madi with Mommie.

Peace, Madi

Hi All -

It's been a while since I've blogged. A lot has been going on... Baby Madison had her first cold... well, minus the fever - sniffles and cough. Her cough went away within 3 days, but she had sniffles for an entire week. I got to use my nasal aspirator to pump out all the mucous in her nose. She hated it soooooo much, she would cry and whine... I'm so glad the sniffles are gone.

Her sleeping habits are great. She's been sleeping through the night on her own at 5 weeks... she sleeps from 9p to 8a now, we are very lucky!!! She is BIG TIME FINGER EATER... we can hear her sucking on her fingers while she is falling asleep, it's tooooo cute...

Bath time with Baby Madison is fun for both of us... I love to bathe her, she loves to be bathed. She is starting to become so heavy that I can't wear her anymore... she absolutely LOVES being in her 'Baby Bjorn.' She's outgrowing her clothes and eating like a piggy.

Madison is crying a lot less now. She loves to interact with anyone who'll talk to her, eve her inch worm that plays classical music, hehe. She is funny, she tries to talk to her inch worm. I hold her a lot less now, she enjoys to lean against a pillow so we can 'talk.' She still talks to Daddie in the morning - when Daddie is ignoring Madison, she smiles and coos at Daddie to get his attention, but the moment she's done playing, she'll cry... Poor Daddie :p

She's sooooo amazed when grandpa or grandma calls from SF. She stares at the telephone wondering where the other person is??? Madison is very excited when the phone is in front of her, she is always trying to talk back!

We are still visiting Daddie's work for lunches every other Tuesday. Baby Madison LOVES the attention from everybody. She probably thinks her name is 'Sooooo Cute,' since it's all she hears.

Madison LOVES to smile at the camera... she's sooooo vain.

We are all so excited to see Grandpa Thach in 19 days, YAY!!!
