Madison turns THREE!!!

Has it really been 3 years?

We celebrated Madison's 3rd Birthday yesterday. The night before I kept re-playing all the events leading up to her birth... Contractions all day long, getting to the birth center at midnight, and having a baby 53 minutes later in the water.

3 years ago!!! I can't believe it! It sounds so cliche, but it feels like yesterday... and she's even a big sister now!

Pictures from Madison's "pink a purple" party, because what's better than pink and purple????

Madison shows us "how many" she is now. Funny story: Taylor woke up yesterday morning to get ready for school and walked into Madison's room saying "Happy Birthday!!!" Madison rolls over in bed and says: "Taylor... I'm still sleeping". Taylor says: "Well, hurry and open your eyes because as soon as you do, you'll turn 3!"

Eyes opened right away. ;)

This is Madison's "Princess cake". It didn't turn out as pretty as I wanted it to. Reagan would NOT let me put her down, and decorating a cake one handed was pretty interesting. With about half of it done, I just finished it "lazy". Both arms were killing me. Madison was happy with it though, and that's what's important... right? :)

The birthday "spread". We just did cake and ice cream, but Brian made his "to die for" carrot cake again. (No hope of weight loss this week thanks to that gesture... ;) )

We're so proud of our little Madison. She has her moments, but she's a sweetheart just the same. Happy Birthday darlin'!!!
