And Then She Turned 2
Today is the day that we celebrate our little Madeline's birth. Saturday is her big birthday party with all her cousins and friends, but today she got to spend the afternoon with her family at John's Incredible Pizza, and feel like the special little girl that she is. Although she is not little by any means nor did she start out little, she was a wonderful blessing on a bright Sunday afternoon 2 years ago.
If I could sum up my little girl in a phrase it would be "she keeps going and going and going". She really is a bundle of joy, laughter and non-stop entertainment. She loves to be chased around the house by her big brother Cameron, scared as she is running past our many hiding places, and spend as much time as she can outside. I let her get away with more because she is my little girl and I don't want her to grow up too fast. She has the most beautiful blue eyes and bright blond hair, has a stubborn disposition like her daddy, but makes up for it when she smiles.
I don't know what I would do with out her. She was my little angel from above, but can be a little devil. She can always make you laugh no matter how bad you are feeling. She is definitely going to be a handful in the coming years, but at least she will keep me on my toes.
