Father's Day (Week 10, Days 1 & 2)

Maddy flirting with the fan

It is again time to marvel at how fast Madeline is growing. While all the doctor’s scales and charts identify her as either at or above average for height and weight, I just can’t wrap my head around how fast she is changing. She’s even longer than she was last week, and even though she’s got plenty of baby cheeks and chubbiness to go around, there is a definition to her face developing, and she is looking more and more like a little girl. It’s hard to believe that by the time she is one, she’ll be walking and possibly talking. The amount of change that occurs in the first year of life is mind blowing.

Over the last few days, Madeline has begun a discovery phase that now provides a world of entertainment to my husband and I we never thought possible. She has discovered her feet, her hands, my husbands beard, and most importantly fans and lights. She flirts with the fan in our living room with such joy that you can’t help but laugh at her sheer delight. She is providing hours of entertainment during her wakeful hours, just by discovering the world around her. 

Happy Father's Day Dad!
Sunday we celebrated Father’s Day, another first for our family. We were lucky enough to have both our parents in town for Fathers Day, and celebrated with a big family brunch. It was a gorgeous Chicago day, and we spent the rest of the day just the three of us enjoy the park and our little family. It was a perfect lazy Sunday to celebrate my husbands new role as father, and the growth of our little family.
