I really can't believe that Madelynn is 3. I remember every little detail from that special day and can't believe how blessed our lives have been. She is such an amazing kid. She is kind, loving, fiesty, energetic, talkative, stubborn, and always makes us laugh. The last 3 years have been better than I ever could have imagined. Our life as the 3 of us is about to change and that is hard to imagine. As we have gone through the changes we have in the last 3 1/2 years I am so thankful Madelynn will have a buddy in life for these situations she will face. I could never have made it through with out my sisters and now she will have her own sister to give her that comfort and friendship. A few words about age 3:
"Don't talk to strangers,
You must comprehend;
I give you a warning,
Not all grown-ups are friends
I teach you about manners
and when to be polite,
But I also enlighten you
When saying "no" is all right.
You discover responsibility,
You master a first chore;
You learn to put your toys away
That are left on the floor...
You personality blossoms
More and More each day;
I like who you are
And all that you say."

I know time goes so quickly so I am trying to savor every moment and remember that this is the last summer it will just be me and Madelynn. We have a trip to Alaska planned and many trips to the pool. Here's to the next amazing year with your sweet girl as we get to experience another wonderful stage in her life.
