Christmas 2012

Maddie was up bright and early at 6:30am this morning.  I don't know if she knows it was Christmas but she knew something was up.  She ran down the stairs and saw her new friend, Max (rocking horse) and baby dolly Molly.  She opens her presents slowly, so slowly we didn't finish opening presents until Christmas night.  Every present got her undivided attention.  She was a lucky girl to received so much love from family near and far.  I couldn't tell you which was her favorite gift, OK maybe Max but besides that she loved it all!

Busch Gardens

We took Maddie to Busch Gardens for the first time last weekend and we went back again to this weekend.  The place is perfect for her because it has animals and rides.

Oh Christmas Tree

We put up the Christmas Tree after Thanksgiving and Maddie is in awe of the tree, bells and lights.

Her hair is getting so long!

One Year Ago Today

Today marks our one year "Gotcha Day" anniversary.  Last year we met our precious Maddie and life has never been the same again.  Maddie is still all smiles, fearless, independent and full of love.  She has taught us so much about ourselves as parents and as people.  She is a little girl full of so much strength and determination.  We don't have any more surgeries schedule until she is around 5 or 6.  She is talking about a storm but her articulation is not that great yet.  She loves to give hugs, watch movies, sing and dance.  Loves to be read to and loves to get her hands dirty during art class. 

We are truly blessed to have this sweet angel in our lives.
