first Christmas

This year was Madison's first Christmas! We had a great time with family. Madison got some great toys, and is having fun playing with them. It was so cute to watch her open her car. This year was a small christmas for us, but still fun. It's not all about the presents as it is God and family. It's just fun for us to get together with friends and family and play games.
I must say though, its not as easy to play games and hang out with friends when you have a child. You have to either start early and go home early and get her into bed, or keep her up late and have a cranky child and have no fun. We have found that its just easier to have the friends over to our house and put her to bed.

Madison is now 9 months old, standing by her self, walking around the furniture, and sleeping through the night thank God. She goes down at 7:30 and wakes up around like 6 or 7, and sometimes i can get her to go back down for another hr or 2 pending on what time she wakes up first. I just hope it doesn't change again, because this is not the first time she has slept through the night for long periods of time. I do love my sleep and miss my sleeping in days. But she is all worth every bit of it. We have really started to see Madison's strong personality come out when she is upset! This girl has some real attitude and lets you know when she is MAD. Mostly when we are changing her diaper, making it impossible to change her. But on the other side of her personality is a happy girl, with lost of laughing, giggles and pretty smiles. I have no doubt that this girl is not going to be shy.

So 2 days ago Madison slept through the whole night! It was AMAZING she didnt wake up till 8:45am! I was so proud of her. She hasnt slept through the night since she was about 4 1/4 months old. So i thought hmmm maybe just maybe she will sleep through the night again tonight. Ahhh no such luck, she woke up at like 4 and then again at 6. Bummer! I can only hope it happends again soon.

Well its off to work i go today. Should be a really busy day at macys seeing that today is sat and there is only 2 sat left till christmas. I love when it is busy, it just makes the time go by so fast. Maybe i will see some of you shoppers :)

Life right now

Well I have decided to join the blogger group. I dont know how often I will get the chance to do this in spite of all the other sites I am on but I will try. Just to let you know I am not the best writer either, but I will do my best! By the way you should all check out Beenup2. It is the coolest site ever! I like it better than myspace. You can take pictures with your phone and text it right to the site and it uploads for you. So go check it out, you'll love it!

So whats been going on with me....Well my daughter Madison is 8 months old now! Crazy time goes by so fast! Shes been waking up about 2 times every night because of stupid teething! Oh how i will be glad when all those teeth are in. She is going the the clingy stage as well. I put her down and she just whines pretty much all day. Thank God for Naps, and going to bed at 7:30pm, or else i would get nothing done around my house.

Those of you who know me know I am working for Loreal as a fragrance model. So i have been busy working at Macys every weekend. Its been so nice to have the extra money coming in during the holidays. God is so good how he just provides when you need it. Well thats about it for now! :)
