Madie turns 4 – A year in review

Madie Eating BreakfastHappy Birthday Madie!

Today marks year number 4. Madalynn was born in Logan Regional Hospital 4 years ago! Man how time sure flies. This year for Madie has been full of changes for Madie.
A move to Woods Cross meant a new school and new doctors. She has progressed wonderfully this last year and is such a wonderful joy and spirit in our family! Kennedy and Madie are such good friends, as are all our girls. It is such a wonderful thing to have girls so close together in age. They play and help each other and each adds a wonderful spirit and personality to the mix.

Madie has really blossomed this year with her speech. She loves to talk and sing and dance and if you’ve never heard her say one of her sweet little prayers you’re missing out on one of the best little treasures of life. Madie has always enjoyed the simple things in life. The wind in her face, a quick jump on the trampoline, or perhaps a ride in the stroller or dad swinging her in the living room. It doesn’t take much to get a giggle or laugh from Madie!

This past year Madie attended preschool and enjoyed playing and socializing with other kids her age. She is of course our biggest fan of Signing Time (even though dad works for Signing Time). She can recognize each of the 28 volumes of Signing Time by sight and has memorized all the songs and signs in each volume. One of her new comforts is simply carrying a Signing Time case (the dvd case) with her where ever she goes. Whether in the car, at home, playing at the park or in church you can bet there’s a Signing Time close by.

Our favorite saying from Madie is “Holy Snikees” She loves to say it and it is very, very cute.

Madie we love you and are so glad you are part of our family. Everyone, please take a moment and drop Madie a comment for her birthday and we will share it with her this year and in the years to come!

Below is a few pictures reviewing what Madie has been up to this year.
