My Constant Companion

This lately has been pretty much all you see. Madi is my little shadow and constant companion. It used to be that she would go to Dad when he got home and follow him around and it was great because I could get things done. Now she will hug Dad when he gets home and then continue to follow me around like an eager puppy. I haven't really decided if I love it or not. It really depends on the day. Some days it is super cute and helpful and other days it makes it absolutely impossible to get things done. I guess I should enjoy it while I can because this will pass and I will most likely miss it when she likes Daddy again. I guess it's all part of being a mom.

Primary Program and my class.

I don't know what it is about primary children but they just have such a place in my heart. Yesterday we had  our wards primary program and I of course was up there since Joe and I are teaching the CTR 7 class. I think I cried threw the entire program their sweet little testimonies just touched my heart. I love/hate being in primary it is a tough but rewarding job especially when you are spending 2 hours with 14-7 to 8 year olds. But honestly I love my class funny enough as it is I taught this class when they were 4 turning 5. Then after that I was in the primary presidency. Then we moved away for a year and a half and now that we are back we got assigned the same kiddos just older. It is amazing to me to see how much they have grown and matured (not by much but some more then others lol). Some who have come out of their shell and are no longer shy. Now they answer questions in class and most of then have been baptized. I just think these kids in this particular class with just always hold a special place in my heart and are teaching me soooo much I love you guys.

Madi's 18 month check up

Madi just had her 18 month check up on Wednesday. Here are all her stats

28 lbs 4 ounces
95th percentile

31 inches
25th percentile

Head Circumference
18 3/4 inches
90th percentile

They said she is doing really well and was really impressed on how much she is talking already because she is connecting a lot of words together and even a few sentences. She is definately at the age where she really doesn't like the doctors office. She cried most of the time we were there. I can't believe how big she is getting.
