Lovin' on Brock

My friend Alyssa started back to work tonight so Baby Brock came to play for a few hours. Madison was quite interested in poking at him and of course playing with his toys. I could not resist the photo op. When I set them up against some pillow she instantly started leaning over and kissing him. PRICELESS!

Madison is finally well. It seemed like such a long week. She broke out in a rash(Roseola) the day we left to see my Grandma. Luckily she was not contagious to anyone but kids so we still went and was better by the party. She is back to her normal self now.

We had the 50th Anniversary party for my Grandparents(pics below) and Grandma Roxie was moved today to a rehab center. They are expecting a great recovery. Please continue to pray for her.

My Grandma Phyllis is having surgery this week for her bladder cancer. Please pray for her as well.

Please Pray!

Thank you to everyone who has been praying for Madison. She got up this morning and her fever was finally gone. She was much more like herself today. Still a bit fussy and tired but she had some spunk back. We are still not sure what she was sick with. There is still a possibility that it is Roseola. It is a fever for a few days and a rash that appears 24hrs after the fever breaks. If a rash doesnt appear we will just count our blessings that it is gone. We are still waiting on results from a urine test yesterday.

I have a few more things for you all to pray for. My Grandma Roxie(Kay's mom) had a stroke this week. She went to the hospital in the middle of the night on Monday and they gave her an aspirin and said she had a mini stroke. Her sypmtoms came back so she returned to the hospital. After an MRI is was decided that she had a full blown stroke. She has lost use of her left side. They are doing physical therapy hoping to regain that use. Please keep her in your prayers. Mom, Madison and I are going down to see her tomorrow and staying til Saturday when we will be having a party to celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary. For now we are hoping that she will be able to come for at least a couple of hours in a wheel chair.

Also, my Grandma Phyllis(Russell's mom) has been fighting bladder cancer for the last few years and it has returned once again. Please pray for her as well.

Thank you so much to all of our wonderful friends for your calls and prayers. You are the best.

Madison is now 13months. We had her 1year check last week. She is 23lbs and 31inches. She is such a happy girl and loves to play. The last couple of weeks she has had quite an interest in playing with her tongue. She will stick it out and wiggle it around until you do it back. It is so cute! She is also laughing more and more. The simplest things make her crack up, like something falling off a shelf. Her and Milo play peek a boo behind the curtains and she just starts giggling at him.
You can see in the slide show her eating one of her favorite foods, bananas. She loves any form of cheese as well.

Since Saturday night after we got home from church she has been running a fever 100-102.8. We are not sure what is causing it. We saw the Dr. yesterday and go back this afternoon. Please be praying for her to get better soon. She is so miserable.

The Ponytail Aftermath

Madison has had ponytails a couple of times recently and her hair always stands straight up after I take them out. It is so cute I could not resist getting a couple of pics. This is the morning after I took them out.

Happy New Year!

December 2007

We had a very fun holiday season celebrating with lots of family and friends. Madison had lots of fun opening gifts. She also had a blast playing in the snow on Christmas. She couldn't get enough.
She is getting so fun and developing quite the little personality. She loves to laugh and play, especially dance anytime music comes on. She gives great hugs and MMMMAAA! kisses. They are the best.
