Madeline is 1 year old!!!
Can you believe it? I sure can't believe my baby is 12 months. It seems like just the other day I was bouncing Maddy around the house, with the water running and the stove hood blowing, while singing to my voice went hoarse. I didn't see an end in sight. I thought I would be swaying her back n' forth and whispering hush until she went off to college. I actually was counting down the days until she went to college (okay, not really). Now that things have calmed down considerably, Jon and I couldn't enjoy our bundle of joy more if we tried!
We celebrated Maddy's actual birthday with family at a local restaurant in downtown Milford, Red Dog. We all enjoyed burgers, and they made Maddy a special soup (honestly, they really did!). We later had cake at home. Maddy was timid at first, but soon dove into the frosting and barely came up for air.
The next day was party time! Maddy had a little over 30 of her closest family and friends over. What a special day!
