Day204/ Happy 4th Birthday Maddie

Dearest Madeline Elisabeth,

Today you turned 4 years old and we celebrated you with friends, ponies, cake, face painting, pizza, soccer, and a pinata. It was a blast! Watching you run, laugh and play with your friends made my heart so happy.

When you were born 4 years ago, my life changed. I had anticipated being a mom for so long and there you were. Beautiful! Daddy, Nonnie & I were all there and we had tears of joy when we first saw you. It was amazing.

Now you are a big girl. You want to do everything yourself. You have become such an awesome helper to me and to Gracie. Usually if I ask you for help, you jump to it. You even like to make your bed! It makes you so proud that you run in and ask me to "come see" everytime. Today you got a new Barbie Bicycle and you are already so good at riding it. I hope it's a memory that lasts for a long time.

Mostly, I want you know how loved you are. I think you know this because you are so loving to others. You always want to kiss and hug the people you care about. Even your teachers tell me how sweet you are. I'm so grateful for who you've been, who you are and who you're going to be...It's an awesome journey and I know that God made you just for me.

Love always,
