Jeez, its been a month since i posted last... bad blogger. Things have been busy and I am so grateful for every gift I have been given. Maddie is almost 3 months old (Aug 7) and she has had her first airplane ride. Mom and I drove to San Antonio when she was born so this was her first trip in the air and we werent sure what was going to happen. She did awesome.. she cried a little and with the bottle went right to sleep.. I had visions (thanks to my co-business traveler friend Mark) of being 'THAT' person, you know, the one with the screaming baby for the entire trip, the one who prompts hearing loss by those who crank up the ipod to max to drown out the noise. But, as usual she amazed me and didnt have an issue with the pressure. She slept through 2 landings (to the pilot's credit they werent bad) and everyone who walked by said what a good baby she was.

We were in South Dakota (me for work and Maddie and Nana for social visits) for 2 weeks. Living in a hotel (flashbacks to San Antonio) wasnt bad this time, maybe since we know Sioux Falls and had other things to do.

Things are going great with her. I havent had any issues with people looking at her then at me and wondering.. hmm how'd that happen. Its kinda funny to wonder how people's minds work. I was in Walmart the other day and the sales girl asked me how long I was in labor with her.. I said '19 hours' since thats how long it took to get to San Antonio!!!
So.. lets catch up on some pictures shall we??? There are some random ones, some pictures of her room and her insanely full closet.. (again with my shopping problem) and some of friends in South Dakota. Mom mentions every day how she is growing.. and growing.. I know she has to and I am glad she is but still.. I am trying out Smilebox.. hopefully this works.

Maddie is such a beautiful and happy little girl! And what a happy mommy too :-)

FWIW - my son has always done well on plane rides. He flew when he came home at 6 months and we just flew again this summer, when he was 18 months. There are some kids who don't do well but it is complete myth that all babies and kids cry and scream. Looks like she had a very good trip!
