No more pacifier :(

So miss Maddypants had to give up her beloved pacifier at the age of 3 months! I took her in to the doctor yesterday as she has been really upset and not her happy-go-lucky self. Result: Ear infection in both ears again:( Poor baby. She was in so much pain! I am guessing we're heading down a well known roads towards tubes, but we're still crossing our fingers that is not the case.
The pacifier though, is gone. I have one in her diaper bag for extreme emergencies. She did well without it today. Went down for two naps without it, but with crying for a while. I can get used to it, and I am sure she can too. It was such an easy out though, a quick way to calm her down.

So, cross your fingers this is just a fluke! And that throwing good old paci out was all that was needed to get rid of all those yucky infections!

Me, smaller, soon

At least that is my goal.
My baby sister and I have decided to be each others coaches/buddies/whatever in order to lose weight. I am so excited!
I am NOT going to list my weight here, but I will update with my overall loss each week. Cross your fingers it will go well! I am not going out all the way as I am still nursing, but taking small steps to get to a healthy weight, and to a place where running will not be hard on me. I WILL finish a marathon at some point in my life and I think the sooner I get it done the better:) I will star with some 5K's and move up to 10k's and from there I guess we'll see what happens:)

Rolling over

Madeline decided to let my dad in on some of her development and rolled over belly to back three times on Friday! Yay! And then, today, while I was getting her bath ready she rolled over back to belly! And all on her 3month birthday! Happy b-day sweetie!
She is growing so fast and is such a joy to be around! She is becoming more and me like Michael and Victoria. Talking like Toria and content and smiley like Michael.

Well, just wanted to share that with you all!

Happy Easter!

We are lucky enough to have my dad visit us for Easter again this year and we love it! Unfortunately, I do not have time off as we just had Spring break. We're trying to make the best of it though.
I am doing nursery Friday night, Kevin is ushering Saturday night and Sunday we're invited to brunch at my sister-in-law's mom's house.
I am kinda bummed we won't be making an Easter ham or turkey, but it will be nice to not have to cook too!
Saturday morning we're going to church for an Easter Eggstravaganza. It entails all you can eat pancakes and an Easter egg hunt. We went last year too, and loved it!
Tomorrow, or Saturday afternoon we'll dye eggs and do some fun Easter crafts (and a bit of shopping) and just enjoy the time together,

I will post pictures later on, but I still have not gotten around to re-sizing them from RAW mode.

Take care all! And Happy Easter!
