Madison has shifted into this earth life very well. She spends most of her time sleeping, eating, grunting or staring quietly alert.

 My mom was able to  come in town after Bryan went back to work which was so nice. It was great to have the help and company while I was still healing.
 Madison has been having a hard time farting on her own, so Daddy helps her out. You just pull her legs back and out comes a toot, it has been a great bonding experience for the two of them.
                                                    I love all the little faces she makes, she is so cute!

First of all if you need any sound New Year advice this is probably who you should come to.

 Next, we have had such a fun little holiday time here in DC. There have been a lot of fun gatherings and parties. Bryan's schedule hasn't been crazy so we get to spend time with eachother. Our friends took us to see the Messiah at the Kennedy center which was really good. I had never seen it before, but we think it would be a fun Christmas tradition.
 The Oral surgeon I used to work for had a little holiday party, and invited me and Bryan. It was fun to see everyone again!
 Bryans co-residents gave us a surprise baby shower, which was so thoughtful. They had a lot of fun little games, and it was fun to spend time with all of them. Bryan is so lucky to have such a good little "resident family."
 Christmas eve we went downtown, to see all the Christmas decorations, and get in the Christmas spirit.
 Then we drove to the temple to see the temple lights and watch the little peformance they were having that evening. It is always fun to be at the temple. Then we went to dinner, and finished the night with a competitive game of canasta. It's  a card game my grandparents taught us, and we are hooked. We will one day fit in very nicely at the retirement community!
 We also got a fun christmas package and were spoiled wrotten with all the Christmas gifts we got. It was such a fun and special christmas. We had our 5 year wedding anniversary as well!
Now it's count down time for baby. I get induced on wednesday and we are so excited. Can't believe the time is already here. We can't wait to meet you little madison!
