Happy Birthday Madeline!

Happy Birthday to my BIG 3 year old!!!

I cannot believe that 3 years ago today I was sitting in a hospital in Munich, in the wee hours of the morning giving birth to you.

You were such a glorious baby, and I remember holding you on my chest in those precious moments after delivery, breathing you in and knowing that I would love you forever.

The precious gift that you are, having been given to me by the good Lord above, I will watch over you all the days of my life. I love seeing you grow, becoming the little girl God created you to be. You adore your big sister, and you try to make your younger brother laugh all the time. You love spinning in circles and singing songs, you give the best hugs, and when you tell me you love me (which you do all the time) – my heart just melts.

You are the most strong headed, stubborn child I know. But I laugh and thank my lucky stars knowing that there will come a day when I will be so thankful for those personality traits in you. And you are the brightest little girl, I am astounded by how much you pick up from Chloe – your vocabulary and counting are amazing. You are leaps and bounds ahead of your age.

I love you little girl, every little hair on your head. Even when you are throwing fits (which you like to do a lot too). I see myself in you, I don’t know where or how you learned it – but just know that when you are crossing your arms and saying ‘never’ – I did that. 




 You are my daughter through and through, and you are THREE today.  Three glorious years of getting to know you, three years of watching over you, three years of snuggles, hugs and kisses, and three years of loving you.

Happy Birthday sweetheart.
