We have Madalyn on organic milk because when we first switched her over to regular milk, she did find, but developed a rather large knot in her right breast within 2 week of being on regular milk. I was concerned about it and her doctor said that it was too early for a breast bud to be developing, but one theory was that she was reacting to the hormones in the cow's milk. So as a suggestion, we switched her to organic milk. It took about a month for the knot to go down. Once, since then (that was in March at her 1 year check up) the knot started to get big again, but went back down. So hopefully that's all it was and the knot has stayed small. We will get that checked again next week at her 15 month check up. She loves milk, and I'm glad she doesn't have to have it "doctored -up" with chocolate or anything to get her to drink it.
Here's what she is up to these days:
-She can open the doors inside the house.
-When you tell her "no" she shakes her finger at you and babbles something (when she gets to talking a lot, I'm afraid she will be quit sassy.)
-She doesn't listen to well at times when you say "no", she can be stubborn and she is very determined to do what she has set out to do.
-If you tell her "no",she will stand on her head ( she will put her head down on the floor and put her rear-end up in the air and go across the floor on her head).
-She babbles all the time
-She loves to push buttons, constantly turns off the TV
-She loves cell phones, and has even called people. (Last night Kevin's phone started ringing and he asked me why I was calling him and realized it was Madalyn. She had my phone and was calling Kevin. Once, during school, she called my and her Papa at 6:30 in the morning. Bless his heart, he thought something was really wrong. The funny thing was she had hung up and Kevin didn't know she had called him. Papa called Kevin wanting to know what was wrong.)
-She has almost all of her teeth by now. In May, she had 8 coming in at once, and now the rest have started to come in. Bless her heart, she sure didn't take her time on getting her teeth in.
-If she sees you do something once, then she will try to repeat it.
-She is always doing something new and makes us laugh. Sometimes it's something she's not suppose to do, so we have to turn our heads so she doesn't see us laugh.
Love this one!
She saw Wingo running around.
She saw some birds flying in the sky.
This was our signal that Madalyn was done.
