5 years ago...10-24-04

It is so hard to believe that it has been 5 years since we last saw you. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you. I often find myself thinking about you in the car. I can still hear your voice and laugh. I can still see your facial expressions and body mannerisms. I can still feel your presence everyday. I am so thankful for all of the great memories I have. They all make me smile. I miss you so much, more than words can express!

Baby Madi

They say that a nickname should "fit" the person and reflect who they are. Little did we know that the nickname Haylee chose for her sister, would actually be a PERFECT fit, now anyway! Madison is truly a baby. Maybe it is the fact that I "baby" her. Anyway, I love that she is so sensitive and "needy". Here is what we get from our baby girl when we tell her no.
It starts with the "pouty" lip.

Then the nose "scrunch".

Then the "wail".

As bad as it may sound...I think it is the probably one of the cutest things! You just can't help scooping her up and hugging/kissing all over her.

We all love our BABY Madi!

Pumpkin Patch 2009

My 'lil pumpkins!

Carefully searching for her little pumpkin...
Baby Madi decided she needed to do the "Taste Test" to choose the perfect little one.

Happy Fall!
