MG has done a lot more rolling over lately, and she manages to push herself around when laying on her tummy or back. She reaches for the toys on her gym and Mamaroo and is so excited when she actually grabs them. She has figured out how to shake two of her little seats to make the hanging toys on them shake, and loves to do that while smiling at the toys. She’s even figured out how to grab the tabs of her disposable diapers and pull them off, which resulted in a really messy situation yesterday afternoon. Maddie girl loves to make noises and sing – especially if you’re watching TV or talking on the phone or have something you want to listen to. She has started doing a high pitched shriek both when happy and mad that is not a pleasant sound, but I still love it.
Madeline is a tall baby. At 25 3/4 inches she is in the 94th percentile for height and at 15.05 pounds she dropped to the 80th percentile for weight. And MG must have a disproportionately small head since that is only in the 38th percentile. She has outgrown most of her 6 month clothes because of her length and we are now on to 9 months.
My favorite thing this month? The laughs for sure. Maddie Grace makes you work for it but it is so worthwhile. Sometimes she will laugh at funny faces or noises we make. sometimes when we tickle her, and sometimes when we play airplane, which is her favorite game.
