Last month we celebrated another FIRST birthday in our family--Miss Madison Eve. Its hard to believe that she isn't a baby anymore. I mean, she is still OUR baby--well not really my baby but you get the picture.
It was only a short 365 days before that we got to meet her & I whispered hello to her for the very first time…
but here we were surrounded by family & friends & lots of bright colors as we sung her Happy Birthday! Kaden & Logan stood close by & belted it out as loudly as they could. They were pretty proud & wanted to steal the show.
We don't get to see Miss Madison as often as we would like but I am pretty sure she knows who her aunt is. The crazy lady with the camera in her hand. The one that is always conspiring with her mom on what our next shoot is going to look like, where we are going to do it, or throwing something together last minute. The one who makes monkey noises, shakes weird toys above her head or plays peek-a-boo just to get a little smile…
& even with all that, you still can't get a full smile out of her. She just likes to sit back & take everything in--keeping her eye on everything that is going on. Sure, she'll sit on your lap (as long as you have food) but if someone where to get up and leave, she is watching & she keeps watching until they come back. She is quiet---or maybe she just seems so quiet because my boys are soooo loud & she isn't quite sure what to make of all the commotion they bring to Grandma Sara & Papa Tom's house. She gives the best hugs & has the cutest little wave I have seen.
I have loved being able to watch her grow over this past year and can't wait until she is a little older and is able to come & stay weekends in KC with her Aunt Kayla. I can't wait until I can take her to get pedicures or take her shopping for some fun girly clothes---girls clothes are just so much more fun to buy! I can't wait to watch her grow into a young woman but not too fast.
Happy Birthday Miss Madison Eve, we LOVE you so very much & remember, if your mom & dad say NO, come and ask us!
