Picture of the day - December 2, 2007

Madison "sitting up" for the first time

Photo of my granddaughter sitting in her baby bed.

The gorgeous little redhead featured in today's picture is my precious granddaughter Madison, and yesterday was one of those milestone days that new parents and grandparents are always so proud of. For the first time in her short life, she was able to sit up, without help, for longer than just a few seconds at a time. In fact, she sat there smiling at us for several minutes all while Cheria grabbed a camera and snapped off a whole bunch of pictures to commemorate the event.

Madison is seven months old now, and we have all enjoyed watching her pass one milestone after another as she matured from a helpless newborn into the feisty little girl that she is today. Her next milestone will most likely be walking, and I simply can't wait for her to reach that one! I'm guessing that Granny and Papa will be just as excited as she is when she finally gets around to taking that first "real" step.

I thank the good Lord every day for blessing me with two very beautiful and highly intelligent granddaughters. With Olivia learning how to be a teenager and Madison learning how to do pretty much everything, there is never a dull moment when those two are around...and Cheria and I love every minute of it!
