Miss Madelyn

Little Miss Madelyn, our Madsy girl, you are 14 months old today!  I can hardly believe it.  You are changing minute by minute...

It is rare to see you without a smile on your face!

It is also just as rare to see you without a bow in your hair!

You have the sweetest disposition...

and you will talk to anyone who will listen!

Your laugh is contagious...
Our beauty...
You are beautiful from the inside out!

You are such a sweet, sweet girl.  You smile from the minute you wake up until the minute you go to bed.  You love your brother and want to do everything that he does.  You call him "cuh" and you are always looking for him.  You can say lots of words, new ones everyday...
These are the words you say the most...
Collin (cuh)
sorry (rorry)
oh wow!
juice (jzzzz)
buh bye
shoes (shzzz)
what (when I say "Ryan", you say "what")
poop (you always tell me when you need a new diaper!)
 hot (which you say each time you see me at the stove)

You wear bows and dresses almost everyday.  You are wearing 12-18 month clothing.  I have SO much fun dressing you.  You want to be wherever I am at.  You are very friendly with everyone but mommy is usually your first choice!  You are a GREAT sleeper and eater.  We put you down awake with a baby, turn on your white noise and you pop your thumb in your mouth and go to sleep.  You sleep about 11 hours at night and nap about 2 1/2 to 3 hours a day.  You usually wake up very happy and will talk to yourself for a long while before wanting to get out of your crib.  You love to kiss everything... people, toys, are not opposed to kissing anything.  :)  Your kisses are usually followed by "awww baby".  We give you LOTS of kisses!  You absolutely LOVE, LOVE music!!  You dance and bounce and nod your head to any little tune that you hear.  You started walking when you were 10 months old and now at 14 months you hardly walk, you RUN everywhere...and when I say run, I mean you run full speed ahead, it can be scary at times as you often run with your head down and are not always careful to watch where you are going.  I am tired when you go bed! 
We LOVE you Madelyn...everything about you...from your sweet curly locks down to your chubby little running feet, you are everything we prayed for!
