Happy Birthday, Maddie!


Four years ago, my life changed. I never imagined how much having a child would change everything. And, for the better.

From you, I've learned just how precious life really is.

I've learned that it's okay to take my time and enjoy what life has to offer.

I've learned that it's okay for a little girl to be daring. You are 2 years old here, jumping off the diving board. The closest adult is about 6 feet away, trying to get to you before you jump.

You have provided countless entertainment for your family.

I look forward to seeing your smile, every day.

You are four years old today. I can't believe it. Three years ago, your sense of humor and daring were beginning to show. Two years ago, I couldn't keep up with you. One year ago, I saw a glimpse of the little girl you were becoming. Today, I see a beautiful girl with a quick smile, kind heart, and knowledge that's almost scary.

I can't wait to see what a million tomorrows bring.

I love you,

I love that photo of her on the diving board. I've got one like that, I can totally relate to running as fast as you can to keep up!
