Mad Hatter

Madison turns 18 months old today! Wow! Where did a year and a half go? At 18 months, Madison is at 50% for both weight and height. She's also exactly in 18 month clothes right now. She's very into climbing right now - anything she can pull herself up onto, she does. Here are a couple pictures from this morning. She found Daddy's hat and ski mask and decided to try them on - and then enjoy a good laugh at herself in the mirror.

Here are a couple more -- Hair is getting longer all the time. I always did like to fix my dolls' hair when I was little...

In other news, Matt took a ski/snowboard trip with some friends last week. They had a great day and Matt enjoyed hitting the slopes for the first time in a couple years. It's good to be back in an area where skiing is available nearby. I, yet again, missed out on the skiing fun because my body is busy acting as baby incubator. ;-) But NEXT year... hopefully... I'll get back out there.

I'm measuring about 35 weeks right now - just about a month left! At this point, I'm waiting for either labor pains or March 6th, whichever comes first. If not before, baby's birthday will be March 6 by c-section. Please be praying that the Lord's will be done as far as how the baby arrives! I'm feeling mostly OK -- ready to have my body back but nothing adverse except occasional discomfort from heartburn. As far as I can tell, I'm all "ready" for the baby's arrival - newborn clothes pulled out of storage, carseat ready to go. And of course, bracing once again for the the 'trauma' of sleep-deprived recovery.

Ah yes, little girls and hats. I love it.
March 5th is my little brothers birthday, and our good friends from Scotland had a baby March 5th last year. So maybe you should go into labor then instead ;) Then again, March 4th sounds cool, cause it's like march forth for Jesus or something.

And my friend Caryn (who is due with baby #4 a week before me) has her bday on March 3rd. Lots of choice dates at that time!
