Birthday Girl

Our little lady is TWO today!!
I know I always say the same thing, but seriously... where has the time gone!?!
I feel like I was swaddling her in my arms just a few days ago and now she's an animated, opinionated, little person.
At two, Maddi:
is potty trained
loves all babies and animals
has a natural compassion for others... she cries when the puppies are sad in Lady and the Tramp, gets upset when real babies cry, and says 'you ok?' if you sneeze, cough, or even laugh too hard.
loves music, sings to herself, and dances if she hears anything with a good beat.
loves pizza, popsicles, ice cream, chicken, grapes, yogee(yogurt), and goldfish
will repeat absolutely anything you say
Her favorite song is You are My Sunshine; her favorite movie is Shrek, and her favorite book is Moo Baa La La La
Says 'Mom, where's Sean?' every single morning when she wakes up (oops! I should probably only call him Daddy)
Enjoys playing with trucks just as much as she loves feeding her baby, and refuses to let me touch her hair, no bows or pigtails or frilly, girly things. Oh well.
melts my heart every time she says 'love youuuuuuu!'

My little girl sings out loud, dances with out fear, squeals when the wind blows through her hair, and hugs strangers. She lives life without fear or hesitation.
Having a little girl has been such a blessing. When I look into her pale blue eyes, I see myself... my dreams, my love, my greatest accomplishment.

Happy Birthday Maddi!

Sweet Blog!! Happy Birthday to that sweet girl!!

Alyssa shares her dislike for bows, pigtails and all things frilly. That's why we have short hair! Makes everyone happier. Even though I still occasionally hold her down and stick a bow in!!
