Sweet Madeline turns 1!

I’ll never forget the day you were born.

I wasn’t sure if I’d have enough love

…but all it took was one second…

and I realized God had not given me just one gift, but two..

you of course


 the gift of endless love.

Madeline's b-day 013

It was such a big day for me, but when I got home and saw this picture…I realized it was just as an amazing day for Daddy!

Just look at the way he looked at you!

Madeline's b-day 018

Jack just didn’t know what to think…

He knew you were special and

probably wondered if you were here to stay…

Madeline's b-day 034

We were a family, and you were a part of it now.

Madeline's b-day 023

As I was reminiscing…I found these pictures…they made me cry. I lost Paw Paw four months after you were born, and it still hurts so bad eight months later. 

The bond between a parent and child is incredible.

that bond…you and I share.

Madeline, we love you more than you will ever understand…at least until you have a child of your own.  Then you will know a love you’ve never know before…
