She is officially 6 months old... Wow, how the time has flown by! 6 more months and we will be celebrating her 1st birthday!
This picture was taken last week 10/9. It is starting to get cold out. I couldn't resist I had to take a picture she looked soo cute! Alyshia laughed at me, while she held Madi up to pose her for the picture, because when I handed her to Alyshia asking her to hold Madi for a sec while I ran into the other room to grab my stuff, she made a bet with Madi that I would be back with a camera. Am I that predictable?
She is getting so fun, and I am noticing that she is quite active! When I see other babies that are here age I notice that they are much more mellow, not Madi, she is always rocking back and forth, or jumping up and down, or grabbing something, and what not. I already love her personality though. I don't know if I am going to anticipate her walking, I am sure that she won't walk, she will probably run!
So, November 5th Madi and I will be moving into our new apartment, I am getting so excited. It will be tough though not owning my own home, but that is probably a pride issue, so I just need to get over it. It will feel great to sleep in my bed again. Maybe once we are all settled in I will get some much needed rest. I was thinking last night that I just have a ton of stuff on my mind lately, so even though I am exhausted when I go to bed at night my mind is still racing a hundred miles an hour. So I am praying for peace.
I never would have imagined that I would be here... Everything in life has just taken so many major shifts this year. I know that I have grown immensely through it all though. I don't think that I gave myself enough credit, I am really stronger than I thought that I was.
Speaking of changes, I did as the Prosthodontist suggested and left my mouth piece out all night... Well, when I tried to put it in this morning it wouldn't fit! I know he said that my mouth would change shape and all, but overnight, seriously?? I didn't realize that it would change that quick. So all I have eaten today were grapes, and it was uncomfortable for the grapes to touch the roof of my mouth. That is the fist experience I have had eating or drinking anything since the surgery without my mouth piece. It is still raw up there and sore and sensitive, so I am a little apprehensive about eating anything other than grapes, LOL! Maybe I should call the doc back soon to figure out what I should do...
ps can you believe that in 4 months I am going to be 24?! That means that I will be 30 in less than a decade. Can I really be that old already? sometimes I still feel 17!
