Aug 8 – Madison Is 2 Months Old

Madison is smiling every day and enjoying her morning bottle feed with her daddy.  She has already outgrown most of her newborn clothing.  She had her 2 month pediatrician visit and is doing great… She received 2 vaccines and, surprisingly, she did not scream! She grew almost 2 inches and weighs 10.2 lbs.  I am amazed how fast she is growing and how quickly she seems to be learning.  The one thing she hasn’t done yet was notice her older brother & soon-to-be best friend, Alan.  Alan is probably the most well behaved chocolate lab ever! Aside from trying to enter her jungle activity mat, AKA Costa Rica, he hasn’t bothered her one bit!  

Speaking of Alan, another thing Brian and I have discovered during our journey was about “hearing dogs”.  How would Madison know to wake up if there was a fire alarm? If she was napping, how would she know the door bell was ringing or someone was trying to call her? These are all questions going through our head.  Just like there are seeing eye dogs, there are also hearing ear dogs!  Well, dogs are trained to be able to work with people who have a hearing disability.  What a great job!  We plan on getting Madison a hearing dog (lab of course!) for her 5th birthday.  Please don’t tell her!
