Oh my goodness, today our sweet baby of the family is SEVEN YEARS OLD!!!
Madeley James, how are you seven?!
I remember THIS DAY HERE like it was YESTERDAY!!! We were sitting in the grass waiting for Ashby’s tennis lesson to be finished and she was obsessed with my cup and straw. She had only been home about two weeks and I COULD NOT GET ENOUGH OF HER!
She was the baby we never knew we always needed.
She grew up so quickly though…
Madeley has never had a bad day. She is joy. She is spunk. She is funny, sweet, smart, happy and has filled a place in our family that was perfectly designed for HER!
Madeley is spontaneous, delightful, wants everyone to be having a great time…she wants to laugh and to see you laugh.
You are joy, Madeley James. J-O-Y.
And now, you’re seven.
For Madeley’s birthday this year, Erika and I wanted to do something super fun and B-I-G for her and Britty since they basically spend their entire lives watching/following/sitting/waiting for their big siblings to do all the fun things (and watching all six of their big siblings go on special trips!). So, we’re off on a little birthday trip of our own today! I’m sure you can all guess where we’re going…but to see loads of pics of the birthday girl as she has the most magical birthday ever, follow along on both @mixandmatchmama and @mixandmatchtravelagency this week on Instagram. We are so excited because…she has no idea 🙂 .
Happy Birthday to our sweet Madeley James! You are most definitely the exclamation point at the end of our family. We are so forever thankful we get to spend our days with you.
Oh and wait!
Since the Besties are out of town this week…
…the boys are BACK with PART TWO of their podcast!
And yes, they discuss the infamous matching tattoos.
And the daily grocery shopping.
And more super funny, kind of inappropriate (did he say ‘cresting’?!) stuff that only two guys married to us with hot mics in front of them might say 🙂 .
We hope you love them just as much this time too!
You can listen to the episode HERE or on your favorite podcast platform (iTunes, Spotify, etc).
I’ll see you on Instagram today, but I’ll be back here TOMORROW too! x
