Today, sweet Madeley James turns TWO!
Every year, on my kids’ birthdays, I post pictures of them from the year (and even all the way back to the day they were born), but for this sweet child of mine, we can only go back 39 days.
Last night, I was watching her sleep and I thought how blessed I was to get to say I knew her for 38 days as a one year old. I will never know what one year old Ashby was like, so I count it as a big blessing that I knew one year old Madeley…even if it was only for 38 days.
And in such a short time, we’ve all fallen madly in love.
Madeley, in only five weeks, you have blossomed and allowed us to see you for who you are…this amazing girl with a big personality and an even bigger smile.
You are funny, you make everyone (including yourself) laugh, you are so smart, you are cuddly, you are sweet, and you are beautiful.
We are so, so, so blessed to get to spend your second birthday with you today. You complete our family in a way we didn’t know possible.
Happy birthday Madeley James! We are going to celebrate BIG today! I’m talking Big Tex kind of B-I-G! Everyone is so excited to celebrate with you.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention that I am thinking about Madeley’s birth mom today too. I wish she knew that Madeley had a forever home. I wish she knew that she had a mom, dad and siblings that love her so much. I wish she knew that she was well taken care of. My prayer for her this morning is that God gives her some sort of peace in her heart that reassures her that her baby is okay. Her baby is two today and it’s going to be a very special day.
