A baby no more...


So after last night with the big girl bed and the whole potty thing, Tom and I were talking about how our little "baby" isn't a baby at all anymore. I signed her up for pre-school (fights tears) and she wants to "take dance" this fall too. OMG!! What is happening?? All these "babies" are growing up WAY too fast.

As we were sitting on the front porch this evening, just enjoying this amazing weather I snapped a couple of pictures. When I uploaded these, I honestly got a tear in my eye. She is so grown up...turning three and no longer a baby at all.

Big Girl Bed...FINALLY!


After many attempts made my Tom and myself to convert Maddie's bed to a big girl bed (actually just take the front off the crib) Maddie FINALLY asked for her big girl bed yesterday.

We have taken the front off of Maddie's bed before and she would play and think it was great and then say..."put it back on please" when it was time for bed. Yesterday she said she would like her big girl bed and was all about it!! :) That is...until it was time for sleep. She again said, "put it back on please, I need my crib". Only this time we said nope, you are too big of a girl for a crib. She fussed for a few minutes saying "oh PLEEEEASE....may I PLEASE have it"...talk about killing us!! :) She feel asleep and did great all night. This morning she woke up and said, "HA, Mom I have a big girl bed, you wanna see???". :)

She is growing up so fast, we just want to keep her this age forever. She is such a sweet little girl, with so much heart and so very smart. We love you oodles and oodles Madilyn Adele!!

YES!!!! Spring Has Sprung!!


We are so utterly THRILLED that spring is here. It's finally time to be outside, go for walks downtown, play at the parks, color with chalk, blow bubbles and of course we can't forget Daddy's favorite spring time activity GOLF. :) Maddie is going really getting going on her golfing this year...or so she says.

I hope everyone is out enjoying this fabulous weather. Spring love to you all!!

Spring Break 2008




































We got back from Orange Beach (Gulf Shores) AL. on Saturday afternoon, after a wonderful week vacation. We had such a great time with all of our family and made some really awesome memories.

There were lots of "firsts" for some of the family this year. My parents came to Gulf Shores for the first time, Jamie and Gloria Para-sailed for the first time and Maddie saw a dolphin for the first time. What a great vacation!! :D Here are some pictures....of course there are a million. :)
