Maddie's Birthday!

My sweet little baby turned 2 on the 22nd! She is getting so big and discovering so many things. Here are a few things about Maddie @ 2
Maddie wakes up at 9:00 and goes to bed at 7:30 (I feel pretty lucky!)
Maddie would take a 3 hours bath everyday if I let her
She LOVES hots dogs, chocolate and fruit of all kinds.
Maddie can sing over 25 different songs! Sometimes it catches me by surprise/
She loves her family and often stops what she is doing, turns to me with a strange look and then decides "I love _____(insert family members name)" It's really cute!
Every time we go to the grocery store, she ends up telling a random stranger she loves them. Now who wouldn't love that?

There's much more that I love about her but there isn't a blog big enough for that. On her birthday we woke her and sang happy birthday with a Cinderella Cake. Of course she was allowed to have cake for breakfast and then we opened presents. Dad got her a potty (which is really a gift for me) and I got her "THe Squeakal". She is obsessed with the Chipmunks.
Later that day Brinlee came over and they blew bubbles and drew on the sidewalk.

After that we took all the grandparents for pizza at Chucky Cheese. Maddie had a super fun time!

My sister Kellie took these beautiful pictures of Maddie for her birthday. I LOVE them!

Happy Birthday Madeline! I love you!

Happy Birthday to me!

April brings a lot of birthdays for my family. My Mom's birthday is on the 5th, mine is on the 13th and Maddie's in on the 22nd. This year for my birthday, my husband planned a girly sleepover for me! I had so much fun. My sister baked me a cake that looked like the Eiffel Tower. It was amazing. My friend Tracy brought her new little baby. He's so cute!

I realize turning 25 doesn't seem like a big deal to most, and I swear everyone tries to big fish me by saying "That's nothing wait until you turn 30!" But I am having a hard time turning 25. I am the youngest of three girls and am referred to as the baby. Well, you're not really a baby if you are 25 and have a 2-year-old. So....instead I plan to focus on the positive. Here is what I have learned in my 25 years.
Heavenly Father Loves Me
I have a great husband and daughter
Christ suffered to save me
Life is hard, but worth it!
I love being happy and positive
So Happy Birthday Kamie. You are a great person!
