How Far We've Come...

I just got back from taking Madi to her 9 month check up at her doctor. She's in the 99th percentile for her height (.762 cm), 81st percentile for her weight (9.389 kg) and 96th percentile for her head circumference (46.4 cm). The doctor bragged about her the whole time and said she was beautiful. No lie there! :)

It blows my mind to think how far we've come since she was born. I know it's cliche but it feels literally like yesterday when I strapped her sleepy little body into her carseat that, at the time, seemed like a toddler seat because it swallowed her. I had to hold her head so it didn't fall while we were driving because it didn't reach the side of the seat. I remember being so worried, about everything. I wanted to post a giant blinking sign on the roof of our car that said "NEWBORN ABOARD: STAY BACK 500 FEET." I wanted her to grow properly and be a happy healthy child. I was so unsure about the future then, but looking back now, I feel really good about everything. Madi is my little angel and she amazes me everyday. Often I look at her and wonder how the 6 lb 12 oz newborn could possibly be the same 20 pound baby I have now.

She's crawling 20 mph and trying her absolute hardest to get up on the couch with me. She sings and giggles and loves her Papaw. Madi loves music and anyone who will talk to her. She is everything I could have possibly imagined the perfect baby to be. Her twinkly little eyes melt my heart. I don't know where in the world I would be without her.
