There is no mistaking that Bryan is her Dad! I think she looks so much like him here.

Me and Madison went to Michigan last week to visit my brother and sister-in-law. Well, my brother is a general surgery resident, and so basically we didn't see much of each other but what we did see was great. We hadn't seen each other in over a year. They work him to the bone. Me and Mandy got to have a lot of fun though. I got to meet their new son Jet. We went to a fun pumpkin patch type thing where we got AMAZING pumpkin donuts and apple cider. Madison did not sit still once on the plane. She is a wiggle worm. She also decided to scream from 1:20 to 4 the first night. Yes, Scream. It was nice for everyone. I then noticed that she was cutting a tooth the next day, hopefully that was why! Regardless, it was a fabulous trip!
Madison deep in thought
Such a cutie!!

 Here is Madison and Nyah getting ready for a walk. Madison loved playing with Nyah.
Here is me and little Jet. He is such a cute baby.

And me and Bryan on a Saturday outing up by Mt. Vernon for a walk and some football. We love family time!

This has been a big week. Madison said goodbye to her daycare friend, and I FINALLY finished NURSING SCHOOL!
 Here is Madison outside of her daycare she went too. It ended up being the perfect situation. She was flexible with my schedule, conveniently located, and super sweet.  It am grateful I found her.
 Isn't she so cute??? She is getting so much spunk and cuteness to her.
Here she is on our patio playing and getting some beautiful fresh fall air. It has been in the 70's and all the leaves are changing!

 This is Madi's new thing. She puckers her lips and squinches her nose, and then breathes really hard out of her nose. It is so funny and cute.
 This was a night where Bryan was so cute. I had quickly made spaghetti,so we could both get back to work. Madison was taking a snooze, and Bryan says " Can we please wake up Madi to have her eat with us. Kids love spagetti, and I know she is going to love it, I just want her to try it. So he runs in there all excited to get her up and have her try spagetti. She did love it. Bryan loves his Maddles!

It feels like a lot has been happening lately. Madison had her first real sickness, which has been sad to see. Our usual bubbly and active baby has been so lethargic and sleepy with high fevers. We didn't want to take her to daycare so Bryan got home in the morning after working all night and not sleeping at all to care for her while I went to school. He is the best and loves his maddles!  I finish nursing school next Friday. Crazy right?  It went by soo fast! We are thinking my next step is to get my RN to BSN out here, so it's all done when we move. Bryan is on the ICU (intensive care unit) and it has been long hours, but is going fast.
 Also Madison is 9 months now!!! She has experienced every month but November and December now, and I think she is going to like them! Here we are on a typical day downtown again. As you may have noticed it is a go to thing we love to do.

 Last weekend it got cold, so Madi got to bundle up all cute in her snugly clothes and hat! This was during conference weekend, which happens to be one of our favorites!
 Every night before Madi goes to bed we like to read her stories. It is such a fun time, because she sits still on my lap for like 2 minutes! a rarity with her.
