It is so hard to believe that 4 years ago I became an Aunt! I will still never forget the phone call from my brother in law telling me that my sister was in labor! It was February and my sister's due date wasn't for another couple of weeks. I thought he was playing a trick on me! He's been known to do this a time or two. I almost hung up on him and went to bed. There was just a little hint of something (panic, maybe?) in his voice that made me get in the car and go over to their house to see if this was really going to be the day! Sure enough, my sister really was in labor and a long, long, long time later, Madelyn was here!
I'm really lucky because when Madelyn was just a few months old, her Mom went back to work a few days a week and I got to babysit her once a week. Since I see her at least once a week, I've really gotten to know her well. I know that she is one of the most loving children I've ever met. If you are sad, she hugs you and pats you on the back. She's silly and wild. She loves to play with her friends. She really loves to cook! And I'm pretty sure she loses a sock every time she comes over. (Yep - just one - every time.)
I'm sorry that this post is just a little late Madelyn! I love you with all my heart! I hope that 4 years old brings you all the wonder and joy that being four should!
