Later that evening, we decided to load up the bikes and go to Ditto Landing. The weather was BEAUTIFUL, and we rode around for a couple of hours and then watched the sun set over the water. It was Maddi's first bike ride, and she road in the little trailer that Sean pulled with his bike. Drew road his scooter instead of his bike, but he managed to keep up with us anyway. It was such a fun and relaxing evening, and I'm glad I got to spend it with the 3 people I love most.

The last 10 weeks have flown by! Madison has already started to smile and coo. She's no longer a newborn :( These first milestones are so hard for me to watch. I love watching my children grow and learn and accomplish new things, but my heart breaks a little with each new feat because I know that I will never get that time back.
Drew, however, is completely enthralled in Maddi's new abilities. He loves talking to her and playing with her and she just watches him and grins. Yesterday he danced around while she laughed and squealed. It was precious! Last week, Drew told me that he loves her so much that he needs to marry her when they get older. Bless his heart! I had to explain that it was against the law to marry your sister which was quickly rebutted by the usual 'but why??' After 30 minutes of discussing various reasons, he was finally satisfied by an in-depth explanation of DNA. I am so glad that he loves her so much and that Sean and I could give him the gift of having a little sister.
I tried posting a video of their cuteness, but this is my first time posting a video, so hopefully all goes well. (You might have to turn the music at the bottom of the blog off and turn the volume up to hear Maddi's little voice.)

Brad Paisley -She's Everything
She’s a yellow pair of running shoes. A holey pair of jeans. She’s looks great in cheap sunglasses. She looks great in anything. She’s “I want a piece of chocolate.” “Take me to a movie.” She’s “I can’t find a thing to wear.” Now and then she’s moody. She’s a Saturn with a sunroof,With her brown hair a blowin'. She’s a soft place to land, And a good feeling knowing. She’s a warm conversation that I wouldn’t miss for nothing.She’s a fighter when she’s mad and a lover when she’s loving. She’s everything that I ever wanted, And everything I need. When I talk about her I go on and on and on. Cause she is everything to me. She’s a Saturday out on the town. Church girl on Sunday. A cross around her neck and a cuss word cause it’s Monday. She’s a bubble bath and candle baby come and kiss me. She’s a one glass of wine and she’s feelin kinda tipsy. She’s the giver I wish I could be and the stealer of the covers. She’s the picture in my wallet. She’s the hand that I'm holdin when I’m on my knees and prayin. She’s the answer to my prayers. She’s the song that I’m playin and She’s everything that I ever wanted, And everything I need. When I talk about her I go on and on and on. Cause she is everything to me. She’s the voice I love to hear Someday when I’m 90. She's that wooden rocking chair I want rocking right beside me. Everyday that passes I only love her more. Yea she’s the one that I'd lay down my own life for. She’s everything that I ever wanted, And everything I need. When I talk about her I go on and on and on. Cause she is everything to me.
