I can't believe it! A whole year has past and my little Maddie Moo is a year old. Wow! Moments like these (birthdays) are so bittersweet. When Joshua turned a year old I had just (the day before) found out I was pregnant with Madelynn...I am happy (yet sad) to report that this 1st birthday I am NOT pregnant!!
Madelynn was born 11.01.2009 at 12:13 in the morning!
Today she woke up at the EXACT time to nurse and it was so lovely! I sang to her "Happy Birthday" and she hummed along as she ate-it was the best! She was up a lot last night, like the night she was born, nursing like crazy but for some reason it didn't bother me as much last night. I was with my baby girl, giving her the best I could a year later!!
Madelynn is the sweetest little 'mama' I have ever met and she is also the happiest little thing! Since she was about 4months old she has always worn a smile. It takes a lot to get her to cry (physically-blood draws, for example, don't phase her) but she is very sensitive emotionally (tell her no in a stern tone and she's crushed!)
She loves her "mama's milk", pasta, bread, eating 'big food', and baths!
She has been walking for 4 months, but only steadily and constantly the last 2. She has 5 teeth and knows 8 signs (milk, more, all-done, dad, bath, cry, sleep and hi/bye) and adores her brother-though the feeling is mutual!
Miss Maddie Moo still sleeps in a crib (this is huge as she is a MAJOR climber) yet ends up in bed with mommy and daddy come morning. Madelynn loves her carseat-usually falls asleep in it- and she will remain rear facing as long as possible (35lbs limit I believe).
But that is all I have time to say right now, my baby is one...and it is bittersweet!
