18 months

Sweet Madelyn,
Today you are 18 months old!!  Yes I said 18 months!  I can hardly believe you are half way to 2, but yet it is hard to remember our life before you were in it.
You are the sweetest, wild child I have ever known!
Your smile lights a room...

You laugh and the world laughs with you...

You are very busy.  
If you are quiet it is likely you are up to no good!
You are very determined to do whatever it is you set your mind to.
I am pretty sure you get your sassy side from your mommy.  :)
We have recently had to start sending you to time out.  
Collin enjoys this.  :)

But don't be fooled,
he adores you and you are pretty sure he hung the moon...

You are my cuddle bug,
always more than willing to give hugs and kisses...

You have so much to say.
You talk non stop all day long.
I love the sound of your sweet voice!
My favorite is the way you melodically say "Hi Mommy"
and your version of "love you too"...

You are everything I ever dreamed of sweet girl.
More than I could have ever imagined.
Beyond what I ever knew to pray for.
We are SO grateful that when God created you He chose us to be your family!
Happy Half Birthday sweets!
