4 month old Maddie- A healthy 9 month old

Yes, you heard right, Maddie is a healthy nine month old. At least that is what her doctor said. She went to the Dr. yesterday for her 4 month check-up and she weighed in at 16lbs 4oz. and 26 and 3/4 inches. So she is a little big, but really long. We are hoping that she keeps growing long and will be a tall forward someday.

We have been keeping busy the past week with Homecoming (which was last weekend), the Michigan/Michigan State game, planning basketball practices(tryouts), watching volleyball, and getting ready for the golf outing. Maddie went to her first varsity football game, her dad even got her a mum to wear, she would have rather eaten it, so we hung it on her stroller. Rita, the secretary, made it for her. Then it was watching a disappointing Michigan State loss to Michigan on Saturday. Sunday was a relaxing day, for dinner we went to Keiper's, so Paul and I could start thinking about tryouts coming up in about a week. Tuesday we went to Volleyball at Luther North the girls lost in 5 games, it was a really good match. Yesterday was the doctor and shots. Maddie then slept most of the day away.

Not too much else going on, just waiting for basketball to start and hoping that it goes good. We found out that we are having Minnesota visitors for Thanksgiving again. This year they are flying and Jay doesn't have to work the whole week, so he is coming the Saturday before Thanksgiving and everyone else is coming on Wednesday night. We are looking forward to that visit and also Joel coming in just 2 weeks. Well it is about time for Maddie to eat breakfast.
